NBA OKs return, adopts Disney World ‘bubble’ plan

The 2019-20 NBA season remains a strange journey. But at least it got some measures of context Thursday.

Celtics seeing the light of NBA return as they take to their practice floor

The Celtic mantra from Brad Stevens during the pandemic-induced absence from basketball normalcy has been "staying a week away from your best shape."

Stevens proud of Jaylen Brown, Celtic leadership in fight for justice

Jaylen Brown has steadily improved as a player, this season getting to the point where he could be seriously considered for the All-Star Game.

Of all the rookies from the 2019 NBA draft class, Grant Williams may have the best workout partner during this COVID-19 crisis... with the possible exception of when Zion Williamson trains on his own.

While NBA sources insist there are still many logistical issues to be worked out before the league can resume its games, there are team executives frustrated that the process has been slowed by the lack of widespread COVID-19 testing. → Read More

The NBA’s greatest ever is a not-so-great debate

I'm all for a good barroom sports debate -- even when the bars are closed and there are no live team sports in the country. But when it comes to certain issues, the tall point guard of my youth reappears and I instinctively choose to pass. Such is the case with the latest seemingly critical topic. → Read More

Rick Pitino remembers the Celtics’ glorious night against Michael Jordan and the Bulls

Rick Pitino is on the phone discussing his greatest night as the Celtics' coach. The fact that it was his first game as Celtics' coach tells a larger story -- one for which he will again accept the blame later in the conversation. But now Pitino is laughing through the line as the 1997 opening night victory over the defending champion Chicago Bulls is recalled. → Read More

There is no guarantee things will be a lot better in the world come June when the documentary series was originally scheduled to air, but ESPN clearly made a brilliant decision in moving the epic to April and May. The captive audience thing is working out for the entity in a big way. → Read More

Marking the anniversary of Tree Rollins putting the bite on Danny Ainge

Friday, April 24 is a legendary anniversary in Boston sports history, but damn if Danny Ainge knew its significance. His right middle finger might have been able to offer more than a feeble shrug. Yes, fans of culinary crime, it was just 37 years ago that Wayne "Tree" Rollins of the Atlanta Hawks chose Ainge's aforementioned digit from the Sunday brunch menu at the old Garden. → Read More

Danny Ainge, Celtics preparing as best they can for the unknown

Will there be more of the 2019-20 NBA season? Will there be regular season games? Will the league move directly to the playoffs? When will the draft be held, and what will be the further procedure for evaluating players? Is commissioner Adam Silver going to cancel the rest of this campaign and start the new one next December as a Christmas gift? → Read More

In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, the Boston sports flag flies proudly in Italy

The most ardent Red Sox fan may not live in Boston. Or Massachusetts. Or New England. Or even the United States. Massimo Oriani has long been a writer for La Gazzetta dello Sport, the oldest daily sports paper in Italy and on the continent. But longer than that he has been a devoted follower of the Stockings and, really, all the Boston clubs. But especially the Olde Towne Team. → Read More

Acting as if ye had playoffs

Acting as if we had playoffs won’t get them for us -- at least not now -- and who's to say the Celtics and 76ers will remain the third and sixth seeds, respectively, if the NBA is able to get in a few more regular season games?
