CelticsBlog founder and CEO Jeff Clark joins the Celtics PRIDE guys to talk about the upcoming Celtics season, reminisce about the start of the blog and to test Jeff’s memory of things he’s written.

Adam Motenko, Josh Motenko, and Mike Minkoff start by asking Jeff which Celtics player he called “3Pac,” who he described as “a hot mess, but our hot mess.” Find out which former Celtics Jeff called his “binky” and which Celtics draft pick Jeff was most wrong about.

Then, they get into a discussion about the upcoming season. Just how optimistic is Jeff this year? How far does he think the team can go? Who is he sneakily excited about? Should we worry about Marcus Smart? What about Robert Williams’ injury history? Who does Jeff think our closing lineup will be at the end of the season? Josh ends the podcast by taking Jeff back in time to look at the prominent players both on the Celtics and on the blog that built the site.

About Celtics PRIDE Podcast: Co-Hosts Adam Motenko, his identical twin brother Josh Motenko, and their friend Mike Minkoff couldn’t stop talking about the team. Now they supply your need for Boston Celtics content with their regular podcast on CelticsBlog.

They will talk nerdy to you, dissect the players on and off the court, and bicker like only opinionated New Englanders can. It’s like if CelticsBlog made a BasketballJones / Dunc’dOn lovechild.

You will get the coach’s perspective, the capologist’s view, and a healthy dose of advanced and traditional stats that breakdown everything that happened and could happen with the #1 dynasty in the NBA. If you often find yourself reminiscing about the players you grew up watching, or you just need reminders about what “being a Celtic” means to you, this is the podcast for you. This is Celtics PRIDE!
