Podcast: Will the Celtics blow it up?

By Matt Moore 

The Celtics are facing a huge upheaval, and aren't being quiet about it. Rumors continue to swirl regarding the end of the Big 3 era, as the team looks to the future. Rajon Rondo has been the subject of the majority of talks, despite being the best player on the team at this point, and despite Doc Rivers' insistence to the contrary. But how has this affected the Celtics? Is it bothering them at all? More importantly is it time to blow this thing up?

We talked to WEEI columnist Paul Flannery about the feel from players right now and where the organization stands as the precipice of a rebuild rapidly approaches.

 


So since we did that interview, we've posted on the Celtics being interested in Michael Beasley and Doc Rivers vehemently denying that they are shopping Rondo. All this talk of what the Celtics are or are not doing reasserts what Flannery says regarding how the Celtics are constantly looking to improve.

The fact that Ainge is so unsentimental about the Celtics has always been a strange offset to the team's unity among its players, dating back to the "Ubuntu" philosophy from 2008. But Ainge has been looking forward since last year's trade of Kendrick Perkins, and while Rondo is their best player, it's clear that the Celtics won't be closing any doors. And as long as they're open to making moves, those convesations will wind up in the media.

The drama continues to unfold in Boston.

NBA F&R Podcast: Michael Lee on the Wizards

Michael Lee of the Washington Post checks in on how Arenas and Saunders are getting along, John Wall's influence, and if the Wizards are a playoff team.  Posted by Matt Moore

Michael Lee has seen quite a bit. He followed a terrible Hawks team before joining the Washington Post to cover the Wizards. After a stint covering the league on a national level, he was called back to the beat for the Wizards. This year, the Wizards come off of one of the most traumatic seasons in NBA history. But hope springs eternal with John Wall in town, even as Gilbert Arenas continues his goofy antics. Lee spoke to us about the relationship between Saunders and Arenas, about John Wall's leadership and the trust the team has in him, and if the Wizards can contend for the playoffs this season.
