Celtics won’t sign Kevin Durant without Jimmy Butler or another superstar

The Boston Celtics don’t stand a chance at landing Kevin Durant in free agency this summer. In their current state, that is. Danny Ainge seems to know this as well as anyone.

The future shines bright for the Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics 2016 season has come to an end after last night’s crushing defeat at the hands of the Atlanta Hawks. The 104-92 trouncing came as a surprise, as the Celtics were flat, disorganized, and lacking the tenacity that led to their victories in games three and four.
