Reunion?!

  Looks like a possible reunion in the works?!  We have minor Woj drop, it looks like the Celtics have asked for permission to speak to their former assistant coach.  I'm all for this, from what he did as a Celtics assistant prior to can be very useful and positive for now interim Coach Joe Mazzulla. Experience is a great thing to have on your staff. I wouldn't mind if the Celtics chose to sign a true veteran, who can play that role like an Iggy does for GS.  Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! Banner 18!

The obscure upside to Rob Williams' injury

Even the most-tragic happenings can have an upside, and such is the case with the left knee injury and surgery to Celtics center, Rob Williams III . The latest timeline shows he will be out of action for 8-12 weeks, meaning he could return as soon as late November. So what's the upside? Well, clearly four long seasons in the League have taken a toll on the supremely-athletic youngster. He has averaged a mere 44 games per season over that 4-year span . And lest we not forget, he has been dealing with an artery condition in his knees for a number of years that may eventually require additional surgery. So shortening his 2022-23 season in preparation for the playoffs may be a boon to Rob and his team. In addition, fans will get to see more of the likes of big men Mfiondu Kabengele, Noah Vonleh and Luke Kornet - as will new Head Coach Joe Mazzulla.   It would seem to be the best course for the Celtics brass not to rush Williams III back on the court. He changes the game for The Gre

Where does time go?!

     Where does time ultimately go, I don't know. What I do know is here we are a few days away from the first preseason game for your beloved Celtics. It's been a busy summer after losing the finals. We saw Danilo Gallinari brought in and then get hurt. Malcolm Brogdon found his way here through a trade. Then the biggest bomb dropped when we found out that our Coach Ime Udoka was suspended for a year following inappropriate interactions with a female assistant.  During media day Celtics players were asked what they knew and really it seems they are being kept in the dark. Why, because of legalities, do you as Celtics fans feel they should be made aware?! Will this become something that haunts this season? I don't believe so, I'm confident that Joe Mazzulla despite his transgressions as a young man, is ready to lead this group to Banner 18.  This Celtics team will be must watch all year, the progression of JT and JB is something that I'm super excited to see. Their

Are conditions right to bring Jae Crowder back to Boston?

 Former Celtic, Jae Crowder is asking out of Phoenix, and both sides are trying to work out a trade. At 6'6", Crowder certainly doesn't fit the big-man role as an early-season replacement for Rob Williams, but the 32-year-old forward is a tough, 2-way player that fits anywhere. He can play either forward position and averaged 9.4 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 2.4 APG and 1.0 SPG for the Suns in last season's playoffs. News that he may lose his starting job in Phoenix may have prompted Crowder to seek greener pastures. Is it possible that Celtics fans may see 3 "Js" on the parquet for the first time? pic.twitter.com/m6ysCbTMS1 — Tom Lane (@CelticsSentinel) September 27, 2022 Jae is in the last year of his contract and is set to earn $10.2 million this season. NBA Insider, Shams Charania lists the Boston Celtics as one possible landing spot, possibly joining two other "Js" on the TD Garden parquet "Sources tell me that both the Suns and Crowder are now working

Give us your choices for the next Celtics head coach & floor leader

  Celtics Assistant Coach, Joe Mazzulla , has been tabbed as the interim coach to run the Celtics ship for now, but I simply don't have faith that he will keep the vessel from self-destruction. Admittedly, I could be wrong. So I am throwing it out there. Many of our followers at Celtics Sentinel are very savvy and opinionated. The choice of the next guy at the helm may very well determine whether the ship sinks or sails flying Banner 18. Let us know in the comment section or via Twitter. One other thing. This team has lacked a true on-court leader for too long. Cousy, Russell, Havlicek, Bird, Pierce and Garnett "won't be walking through that door". Brad Stevens has chosen not to appoint a team captain, but beyond the title, one of the players needs to step forward and take command verbally and with his play on the court. So let us know your choice(s) on that one too. 

Dear NBA Do Not Underestimate This Team

 Not sure if I've used the photo you see here before. With all the turmoil and injuries going on in Boston, the NBA should not take this team lightly. A team that has lost their Coach is a team to be reckoned with. I know everyone is clamoring for Ime info but I just need to talk basketball and the Celtics. This group has a special place in my basketball heart despite losing in the Finals.  After the passing on to a better place by my mom and ending up almost losing my life and or hand, this group kept me on a mission. Every game they played I made sure to watch and write for all our readers. The ride they took us on was sometimes a rollercoaster, but it was a huge building block. I full expect this off-season to galvanize this group into winning Banner 18.  I personally can't wait to watch JT and JB grow even more as basketball players and leaders on the floor. Give me Al flexing on anyone, and the Wolverine Marcus Smart annoying others teams best players with his D! I'm p

Damn

 So we originally expected RWill to be out four to six weeks and now it's become eight to twelve.  If we didn't need another big before we sure as do now. Al can only do so much and honestly Kornet doesn't really make me feel comfortable. There are enough veterans out there go grab one.
