The Celtics reaching the Finals is by no means a foregone conclusion. LeBron James need only defend his home floor on Friday night to force a Game 7 in Boston, and bet against James in that one at your own peril. However, the C's have been the better team overall in taking a 3-2 lead into Game 6...

The NBA is often lauded as a league that undertakes progressive causes and encourages its players to be socially outspoken. In many respects, that is correct. LeBron James has ardently campaigned against police brutality and gun violence, whether it’s through wearing an “I Can’t Breathe” shirt or...

Jayson Tatum caught the ball with about four seconds on the shot clock and poured himself an iced tea. Panic? Not this rookie. He shook J.R.

The Celtics might be the only conference finalists in NBA history whose fans kinda want to get this over with, because they can't wait for next year. The C's sit just two wins away from the NBA Finals, and all we can think about is what they'll look like in the fall with a healthy Kyrie Irving and...
