Celtics Beat w/ Brent Barry 3/8/14

+

20 games to go for the Boston Celtics. Can't wait, can you? Neither can hosts Ty Ray and Larry H. Russell. Ty and LHR will talk about LHR's most recent column featured on CLNS Radio: Would the Boston Celtics be better off not winning the lottery? Should they be bold this summer and field a competitive team ASAP? Ty and LHR discuss. LHR will have an extended conversation with NBA TV's Brent Barry. Brent was the 1996 NBA Slam Dunk Champion, a 14 year NBA veteran, and a two time champion with the San Antonio Spurs. Brent currently serves as a studio analyst for NBA TV's NBA Gametime and he dropped by talk about some suggestions he'd make to new NBA commissioner Adam Silver, tanking in the NBA, the MVP race, LeBron James' place in history, and of course -- the Celtics.

Celtics Beat w/ Quinn Buckner 3/1/14

+

March 1st is finally here. The light is at the end of the tunnel. Spring is just around the corner, as is the end of one of the tougher Boston Celtics seasons for fans to endure in recent memory. The latest is a contreversy surrounding the team's star point guard Rajon Rondo. Rondo skipped traveling with the team last weekend in Sacramento so he could celebrate his birthday in Los Angeles. What to make of what has now been dubbed "BirthdayGate." Hosts Matt Rury and Larry H. Russell will share their thoughts. And hey, the Celtics got a win this week. But things won't get easier as a brutal March awaits. The Indiana Pacers are in town tonight, and Matt and LHR will pass it off to Rich Conte who had a chat with Pacers color commentator, Quinn Buckner. Quinn works for Fox Sports Indiana, was a 10 year NBA veteran, and won an NBA Championship in 1984 as a member of the Boston Celtics. Quinn will share his insights on the Pacers, the development of Paul George and Lance Stephenson, Larry Bird, Danny Ainge, Brad Stevens, and more. Matt and LHR will also go around the NBA in 5.

SI On Second Round picks over the last decade

+

I found this paragraph interesting. Indeed, of the 76 players who have made an All-Star team between 2005 and 2014, only eight were second-round picks (Ginobili, Millsap, Gasol, Carlos Boozer, Mo Williams, Rashard Lewis, Gilbert Arenas and Mehmet Okur). One other All-Star (Ben Wallace) went undrafted. Who made up the rest of the All-Stars? A jaw-dropping 53 lottery picks and 14 non-lottery first-round selections. To underline this point, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has more All-Star Game selections over the last decade (10) than all currently-active second-round picks combined (Ginobili, Millsap, Gasol, Boozer, Williams and Lewis combine for 9). So when I read about questions of the worth of high draft picks, I'll keep this in mind....though not all High draft picks pan out, the odds are, a player who makes a difference was one.

Celtics Beat w/ Kyle Draper 2/22/14

+

The 2014 NBA Trade Deadline has come and gone. Rich Conte and Rotowire's Dr. Andre Snellings will have you covered as they recap Thursday's rather uneventful day in the NBA and for the Boston Celtics. Rich and Dr. Snellings will be joined by Comcast Sports Net New England's Kyle Draper. Kyle had an exclusive interview with Danny Ainge on Comcast Sports Net in the hours following the trade deadline. He'll stop by to talk about why the Celtics didn't do anything on Thursday with Rich and Andre, as well as look ahead to the final stretch run of the season and a potential big summer for the Boston Celtics. Oh, and if you aren't aware. The Celtics are currently out West on a little rodeo. Rich and Dre will also go Around the NBA in 5. Yes, they'll be able to cram all that's happening around the NBA during one of its biggest weeks in just five minutes.

Celtics Beat w/ Jon Barry

+

The Boston Celtics are at Heartbreak Hill of the Boston Marathon -- the NBA All Star Break. At 19-35, they ain't doing too good. Ty Ray and Rich Conte are back once again. They'll have plenty to talk about. After an undefeated week last week, the Celtics were only to squeeze one measly win out of the lowly Milwaukee Bucks while being blown out by the Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs. Ty and Rich will also look ahead to the NBA's trade deadline. Who stays? Who goes? Who could come in? And what does the rest of the season have in store for the Celtics. Ty Ray will also chat with former NBA veteran and ESPN's Jon Barry. Ty and Jon will talk about the David Stern era, the new NBA commissioner Adam Silver, tanking in the NBA, LeBron's Mount Rushmore of NBA greats, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Boston Celtics, and so much more. And would Celtics Beat be Celtics Beat if Ty and Rich don't go Around the NBA in 5?

Celtics Beat w/Tom Ziller 2/8/14

+

Popular tandem Ty Ray and Rich Conte unite to recap another week for the Boston Celtics. And finally, they have a winning week to talk about. Despite missing the Sacramento Kings game, Rajon Rondo seems to be rounding into form. Two near-triple doubles against the Magic and Sixers has Rondo looking the Rondo of old. The Celtics also saw some stellar performances from the likes of Jared Sullinger and Jeff Green this week as well. Ty and Rich will also be joined by Tom Ziller of SB Nation. Tom is the author of The Hook - a daily column that appears every morning on SBNation.com. Tom is also the founding editor of SacTown Royalty and will join Ty and Rich to discuss the Celtics' prior night matchup against the Sacramento Kings as well as the pressing topics in and around the NBA. And of course, Ty and Rich will go Around the NBA in 5.
