Today at 3pm eastern time the NBA'S Trade Deadline expired. All teams looking to make a trade had to make their trades by that 3pm deadline. The Celtics Talk Crew is here to announce and discuss any trades that Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge made leading up to the deadline. Are players like Jeff Green and Brandon Bass who have been sought after for months still on the green team or did Ainge send them packing the same way he did Rajon Rondo in Decemeber. Also where do the Celtics now stand in terms of cap space and draft pick's for after this season. Did the moves Danny Ainge made make the 2015/16 season look like a season where the team will be back amongst the NBA'S elite or did he make more moves that are just making the future look even more bleak then they were prior to the deadline. Your Celtics Talk Crew along side Rich Conte of CLNS will give you all the trade details and the affects they will have on the Celtic's chances of landing a franchise altering star whether it be via a trade, free agency or the 2015 NBA draft
Thats right the 82 game regular season in the NBA has finally come to an end. The Celtics started this season as a team that was destined for the NBA lottery. The chances for that destiny being achieved went up when Danny Ainge traded Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks. Everyone thought for sure this teams destiny was a lock once Ainge traded Jeff Green. The fan's starting talking about going into tank mode for the 2nd season in a row. But instead the Celtics opted to fight in what was a weak Eastern Conference and show the rest of the NBA that they are not far from being able to compete with the NBA'S elite teams despite those teams having all-stars on their roster and Boston having none. The Celtics found themselves in the middle of a 4 team race going into the final week of the NBA regular season for the 7th and 8th spots in the Eastern Conference. The Celtics with no all-star players were in the lead of that 4 team race ahead of 3 teams that everyone thought was a lock for the NBA playoffs before the season started. The Celtics were ahead of a Brooklyn Nets team who had Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and Brook Lopez leading them in their fight for a playoff spot. They were ahead of the Miami Heat who of course did not have Chris Bosh but still had Dwayne Wade, Luol Deng and added Goran Dragic at the trade deadline. They were also ahead of the team that has been one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference the last few seasons along with Miami which is the Indiana Pacers and yet the Pacers had Roy HIbbert and George Hill virtually all season. The Celtics with no Rondo, no Green and while having no Jared Sullinger managed to catch and pass those 3 teams and have the edge going into the final week. So now we will discuss how did the final week end. Did the Celtics do what many thought was impossible and get to the NBA playoffs if so who will they face or are they headed to the lottery again. We recap the season with Adam Lowenstein

The Boston Celtics Season came to an end this past Sunday at the hand of Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers via a 4-0 series sweep. Game 4 saw several things that could have an effect on both the Celtics in terms of their plans for the offseason and the Cavaliers in their chase for the NBA Championship. In game 4 we saw the Cavs 3rd best player Kevin Love go down with a dislocated shoulder which could cost him to miss some time depending on the severity. In the 3rd quarter the Cavaliers delivered 2 cheap shots to Jae Crowder. 1 delivered by former Celtic Center Kendrick Perkins as he delivered a shot to the head of Crowder shoving him to the ground which resulted in Crowder retaliating and Perkins hitting him in the face a 2nd time before the refs broke things up. Perkins was not ejected for his actions. Then in the same quarter JR Smith threw an elbow right to the face of Crowder which knocked him out causing Crowder to fall down in an akward way causing a leg injury and that led to Crowder having to leave the game. JR Smith was ejected for his actions. Now both JR Smith and Kendrick Perkins face possible suspensions for their actions which would cost them games in the 2nd round of the playoffs. Meanwhile some of the players the Celtics were depending greatly on to lead this team came up small in this series. Brandon Bass being one of the biggest dissapointments in this series. So now we recap what happened in games 3 and 4. What could the Celtics and its fans take out of this series? Did any of the players on the roster clinch their one way ticket out of Boston like Brandon Bass? Did any Celtics win over the fan base and earn the right to return next season like Jae Crowder? The Celtics Talk Crew will answer those questions as well as give you the updates on what the NBA has decided to do to Perkins and Smith for their actions in game 4. John Karalis of redsarmy.com will join us on this episode of Celtics Talk Radio
Jon Duke and RedsArmy.com's John Karalis discuss the all too short Branden Wright Era and the sure to be all too short Austin Rivers Era as the Celtics make moves to shift into full blown rebuild mode. Jon and John also take a minute to look forward to the (Enter Unnamed 2017 Draft Pick Here) Era
The 2013/14 NBA season has ended and now starts a new journey for the Boston Celtic's franchise. Today we find out what the Boston Celtic's will give to their fans as compensation for having to endure a disastrous 2013/14 season. The Celtic's have the 6th and 17th picks in this years draft. Fans knew the moment Danny Ainge got rid of future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce that the 2013/14 season was going to be a train wreck and today is gonna be the day that Danny Ainge has the chance to prove all celtic fan's that he was right for going the route he did. But he will also give a sneak peek as to where he intends to take the 2014/15 Boston Celtic's to. Does he keep the picks and draft 2 rookies 1 who will be a good player even though the NBA is a league where everything is centered around giving the Star players like Lebron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony anything and everything they need to shine. Rookies rarely ever get the respect they deserve or the fair treatment they deserve from the officials especially if and when they are forced to face the NBA's top stars. So does Ainge knowing those facts draft 2 rookies from college. Or does he trade those picks away and get a legit star to play alongside team captain Rajon Rondo and hope that we can atleast start moving up in the league standings even if it doesnt result in an NBA title atleast make the playoffs to see how close you are to being a championship caliber team. Or does he do the unthinkable and trade away some of our top guys including Rajon Rondo and blow the whole thing up to get some expiring contracts and other trade assets. Andrew Ball of Project Spurs as well as Jon Shames will join the Celtics Talk Crew to discuss the results and also give there thoughts on what the San Antonio Spurs did in utterly embarrasing Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and the Miami Heat in the finals
