The Celtics PRIDE team starts by discussing Kyrie’s comments about subtle racism in Boston, his stomping on the Celtics logo and Jaylen Brown’s response as an ambassador moving the conversation about systemic racism forward with the media and players in the NBA. They also touch on fan behavior including the Celtics fan who got arrested for throwing a water bottle in Kyrie’s direction.

Then Adam, Josh and Mike get to the games! They talk about Tatum’s excellent play getting to the line and carrying the Celtics in this series. They share their displeasure with Kemba Walker’s inability to play and ineffective impact when on the court. They review what impact Rob Williams would have in this series.

The Celtics PRIDE guys also talk about the growth and play of first and second year players including Romeo Langford, Aaron Nesmith, Payton Pritchard and Grant Williams. Is this playoff experience worth it? What can we expect from them next year and, for that matter, what do we expect the Celtics roster can achieve in the next couple of years. Is this team still a top level contender in the NBA? Finally, they give a quick response on whether Game 5 will be the last game of the season.

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!
