The Boston Celtics  are the world champs ... or are they? They won the NBA championship, but Greek club Panathinaikos is the Euroleague champion, and their coach said Boston isn't the world champion until they go through his team. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal  and Tom Westerholm discuss what would happen in a game between those two teams and whether it's even feasible to have a game or series to determine the "world champion" once and for all. Also, a discussion about Team USA turns into a discussion about developing talent in the US. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

The Celtics have played three summer league games and Anton Watson is standing out as having the best feel for the game. Against Charlotte, he finally had the statistical breakout to support that. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm discuss that, Jordan Walsh's struggles, and why the setting is probably unfair to Walsh and JD Davison. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

We open up the mailbag to look at how the Celtics will cover for a recovering Kristaps Porzingis, including Jayson Tatum at the 5, and whether Porzingis or someone else will be the first domino to fall whenever the team does get too expensive. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal answers those questions as well as Al Horford's legacy (and a beef with Paul Pierce?), chances that summer guys crack the rotation, an NBA question about the Denver Nuggets, and some historical Celtics questions. That includes a unique all-time team. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

Jaylen Brown showed up at the Celtics summer league game and explained his reaction to being left off Team USA, what he said to Derrick White, and where they stand. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal reacts to that, Neemias Queta looking pretty good at summer league, JD Davison's nice game against the Lakers, and why the shooting struggles Baylor Scheierman and Jordan Walsh are experiencing might not be a big deal. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

The Celtics opened up summer league with good performances from Jaden Springer, Baylor Scheierman, and JD Davison. Anton Watson  also did well, Neemias Queta was Neemias Queta, and Jordan Walsh was not great. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal gets into all of their performances, what's translatable to the regular season, and what might be fool's gold. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

There's some controversy surrounding Derrick White's selection to Team USA, thanks to Jaylen Brown's tweets. Was this really a snub, or was this more just Team USA following a plan already in place? John Karallis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm discuss why this shouldn't have been a surprise and why Jaylen's tweets have some unintended consequences that can make life a little uncomfortable for the Boston Celtics on the Olympic team. Also, a look at Jayson Tatum's performance against Team Canada.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!BetterHelpThis episode is sponsored by BetterHelp. Make your brain your friend, with BetterHelp.

Derrick White was named to Team USA on Wednesday, replacing Kawhi Leonard, so this was a good time to look back at his incredible season. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Noa Dalzell of SB Nation discuss why he will fit on Team USA, all the ways he helped the Celtics, why his attitude was perfect for the locker room (and any locker room), and why sticking around with the Celtics just made perfect sense. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!BetterHelpThis episode is sponsored by BetterHelp.

Jayson Tatum and Jrue Holiday have some great opportunities with Team USA, including a chance to sit down with guys like Steph Curry, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant, who have made multiple championship runs, and learn what it takes to keep competing for a championship. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal discusses that and the chance to get Joel Embiid to give Boston a scouting report on himself. Also, more examples of Joe Mazzulla being a maniac, but why it's just part for the course if someone wants to be an all-time great. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!BetterHelpThis episode is sponsored by BetterHelp.

Wyc Grousbeck went on CNBC to explain the Celtics sale, but did he really make anything clearer? John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal breaks down the comments and why he thinks his theory on the sale still holds. Also, a surprise return to the Boston lineup as the team heads out for summer league, and then John responds to the tired assessments by people like Shaquille O'Neal and Gilbert Arenas when it comes to Boston's chances next season. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!BetterHelpThis episode is sponsored by BetterHelp.

Mailbag Monday brings us a few questions about Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown and what their roles will be moving forward. John Karalis gets into that and why it doesn't really matter. Also, why connecting the Nomar Garciaparra trade to the Marcus Smart trade is wrong, Jordan Walsh's future role, Xavier Tillman replacing Al Horford, and the Celtics potential for winning an Olympic gold medal. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!BetterHelpThis episode is sponsored by BetterHelp.

A bonus mailbag episode touches on a lot of CBA stuff, including avoiding second aprons, hard decisions of the future, and unrealistic veterans taking the minimum in Boston.

The Celtics are the champs, and Brad Stevens is a major reason why. Not only did he make the moves that put Boston over the top, he made the moves before the moves to set the Celtics up for this moment. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal discusses why coaching Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown gave Stevens an advantage, and why Stevens' willingness to do things Danny Ainge wouldn't set him up for success. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

The Celtics are re-signing Xavier Tillman, keeping almost everyone from the championship team together. Keeping Tillman is positive, but can this turn out to be another low-key underrated score for Brad Stevens in a similar way Derrick White was? John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm discuss that and the value (and pitfalls) of keeping the same locker room together. Also, a goodbye and thank you to Kemba Walker, who retired on Tuesday.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

The Celtics did the expected on Monday, giving Derrick White and Jayson Tatum the biggest possible extensions each could get. And then they did the unexpected, announcing Wyc Grousbeck was selling his stake in the team. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal break it all down, including why Grousbeck is selling now, why he's sticking around for four more years, and why the transition will be very familiar for Celtics fans. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

The Celtics opened free agency by bringing back Sam Hauser, Luke Kornet, and Neemias Queta, meaning 12 of Boston's championship players are back for next season. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal discusses that and then opens the mailbag to talk about Joe Mazzulla developing young talent, Jordan Walsh's future, Kristaps Porzingis' recovery, Bronny James, and more. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

The Celtics announced on Thursday that Kristaps Porzingis would miss 5-6 months after ankle surgery, meaning he'll miss the start of the season. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm react to that before getting into the Celtics draft. Baylor Scheierman and Anton Watson represent a chance for Boston to snag a useful player at the end of the first round and into the second, as well as provide some insurance against a quirky offseason that could cost them key players.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

The NBA's new CBA is making things a little tough for a lot of teams, including the Celtics. Yes, they're going to run it back, but they still have decisions to make and fewer ways to improve their team. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Keith Smith of Spotrac discuss the limitations the Celtics face and the looming contract decisions with Sam Hauser and Derrick White (and, I suppose, Jayson Tatum). Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

Brad Stevens added some clarity to the Celtics offseason plans on Tuesday with his comments on the NBA draft, their summer plans, and running it back for a chance at another title. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal discusses all that and why running it back could be an even bigger challenge for the Celtics next season than overcoming questions was this season. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

The mailbag is back! In this episode, we get into the Celtics offseason (and how limited their options are), how the championship impacted Tatum and Brown, Kristaps Porzingis injuries, Derrick White's progression, and whether Jordan Walsh can be a contributor next year. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal gets into all of that, the forgotten era in Celtics (and NBA) history, duckboats, and his new book. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

The Celtics championship parade produce a lot of great moments, from Joe Mazzulla going completely bonkers, to Al Horford wearing a trophy from beating the Mavs, to Derrick White getting lit. But as John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal explains, the real magic of the parade was seen in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown's eyes and expressions as they looked out at the million or so fans and immediately became Celtics for life. Also, why Al Horford is sticking around ... and maybe longer than you realize ... while Oshae Brissett is exploring his options Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!eBay MotorsFrom brakes to exhaust kits and beyond, eBay Motors has over 122 million parts to keep your ride-or-die alive.

For those people who say the Celtics shoot too many threes; they are shooting 37.8% from three and 56.8% from two this season. If they were to take 100 shots at those rates they would score 113.4 pts from three and 113.6 from two.
