The season has been on hiatus, but the CelticsBlog podcast has continued going strong. We have been releasing regular content ranging from draft previews to interviews and, more recently, Celtics playoff discussions.
CelticsPod has welcomed Wayne to its roster as we waved goodbye to Brenden, who has moved on to focus on Sacramento Kings coverage for The Kings Herald. The CelticsPride team has been diving into some interesting topics too, most notably discussing whether Danny Ainge is the league’s best GM.
Since hiatus began, CelticsPod has interviewed Gordon Hayward, the legendary Celtics play-by-play announcer Mike Gorman, Nate Duncan, NBC Sports Boston’s A.Sherrod Blakely, Red Claws head coach Darren Erman, and Celtics.com’s Marc D’Amico.
If trivia is your thing, then the NBA Trivia Chasedown mini-series was tons of fun. We were pitting Celtics beat writers against each other to test their NBA trivia knowledge - both old and new. CelticsBlog’s own Keith Smith reigned supreme right up until the end, where he lost out to eventual winner NBC Sports Boston’s Max Lederman.

Today’s episode of CelticsPod brings back the playoff feel, diving into ten players’ biggest strengths and weaknesses heading into the restart. From Kemba Walker’s knees to Robert Williams’ injury history, everything was taken into account. In contrast, this upcoming Friday’s episode projects to be a scrimmage preview, diving into what we hope to see from the team in their first semi-competitive game in four months against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
