Unfortunately for Celtics fans that were hoping coach Brad Stevens would make his second All-Star appearance alongside Jayson Tatum and Kemba Walker, it looks like his campaign will fall just short.
After an offseason full of fruitless speculation and devoid of any legitimate trade buzz, it appears the Red Sox have finally found a suitor for Mookie Betts. The Dodgers and Padres have both shown interest in the MVP outfielder over the past week or so. The question isn’t whether or not the Red Sox should trade Mookie Betts anymore, it’s whether Red Sox fans should want them to.
For much of the 2019-20 season, the Boston Celtics have looked like an elite NBA team with a solid mixture of veteran leadership, young talent and good coaching. Critics and fans alike have pointed to the hole at the center position as an area that needs to be addressed by Boston’s front office – and while a dominant center may push Boston into “title favorite” territory, this line of thinking may be a bit misguided.
On Sunday afternoon, multiple outlets confirmed the passing of NBA legend Kobe Bryant as first reported by TMZ. There has been a lot of confusion surrounding who had accompanied Bryant on the fatal helicopter ride.

This past week, Derek Jeter made all the headlines by being one vote shy of a unanimous induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Receiving 396 of a possible 397 votes, Jeter has the second-highest vote percentage of all time, behind teammate Mariano Rivera and his unanimous induction last year.

With the news coming to light recently that Le Havre defender Samba Camara’s P-1 Visa has been denied, the Revolution suddenly have a slight depth issue at centerback. Camara had a brief stint in prison, but the hope of many fans was that the jail time wouldn’t affect his application. Unfortunately, the committee had taken qualms with his record, barring the Frenchman from joining his new club. So, what does this mean for the Revs now?
The 2019 season didn't turn out how we all thought it would. After a promising start to the year, the Patriots weaknesses became apparent and the lack of offensive production overshadowed a tremendous unit on defense. With the uncertainty of Tom Brady at quarterback and retirement nearing, this is a crucial draft for New England. Let's take a look at some targets that could be hanging around at pick 23.
With just 15 days until the NBA's trade deadline, brace yourselves for two weeks of nonstop rumors and unnamed sources. If you're a Celtics fan, you're probably already well accustomed to the trade hysteria, as it's been a natural part of pretty much every season (and offseason) since acquiring all of those assets from Brooklyn. This season is no different. Since before the season even started, you've probably been hearing a lot of the same, common names as potential trade targets for the Celtics. From big men like Andre Drummond, Steven Adams, Tristan Thompson, Kevin Love or Myles Turner, to bench scorers like Davis Bertans, Nemanja Bjelica, Robert Covington or Danilo Gallinari, the Celtics have been identified as potential trade partners and good fits for a whole host of guys around the league. If we know anything about the Celtics front office, however, it's that the moves they make are usually the ones that nobody sees coming ahead of time.
