Boston Celtics

The latest news, scores, and updates on the Boston Celtics via Blasting News.

The Boston Celtics are an American basketball team headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. The Celtics are one of the most storied franchises in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and they compete in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. The team was founded in 1946 and is owned by Boston Basketball Partners LLC. The Boston Celtics play in front of their home crowd at TD Garden and have won a total of 17 world titles throughout their long history (the most in the NBA).

The rivalry between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers is the stuff of NBA lore and legend. Whether it was Bill Russell vs. Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Bird vs. Magic Johnson, or Kobe Bryant vs. Paul Pierce, as the two winningest franchises in all of the basketball, the Celtics and Lakers are NBA royalty -- even more so when they compete against one another for the crown.

While the Boston Celtics did not win an NBA title in 2008, and their last NBA Finals appearance was in 2010, the franchise has undergone a successful rebuilding process under Danny Ainge, stockpiling draft picks and developing talent, and the 2017-2018 season may very well see all of that hard work finally come to fruition.

With the recent acquisitions of Gordon Hayward and the blockbuster trade to acquire Kyrie Irving from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Boston Celtics feature a stacked roster that will be a threat to many in the upcoming season.

The current roster for the Boston Celtics includes:

  • Kadeem Allen (SG)
  • Aron Baynes (C)
  • Jabari Bird (SG)
  • Jaylen Brown (F)
  • Gerald Green (SF)
  • Gordon Hayward (SF)
  • Al Horford (C)
  • Kyrie Irving (PG)
  • Shane Larkin (PG)
  • Marcus Morris (PF)
  • Abdel Nader (SF)
  • Semi Ojeleye (PF)
  • Terry Rozier (PG)
  • Marcus Smart (PG)
  • Jason Tatum (SF)
  • Daniel Theis (PF)
  • Guerschon Yabusele (PF)

With the Boston Celtics making it to the Eastern Conference Finals last season, and with the additions of both Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving, Celtic Pride has indeed been restored among the faithful. Along with Hayward and Irving, the Celtics also have Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum (this year's draft pick) to continue to add youth on the court. Al Horford is a veteran presence in the paint that will help steer this roster in the right direction moving forward, and, while it's too early to tell at this point what the 2017-2018 season has in store if you're a Boston Celtics fan, you have to like their chances.
