Boston Celtics Daily Links: Thursday, March 20, 2014


Good morning, Boston Celtics fans!

Brackets picked?  Snacks purchased?  Schedule cleared?  I hope you answered, “Hell yes!” to all of those questions, because today is the big day: the NCAA Tournament begins this afternoon!Because of that, I’ll be brief: let’s get this show started!

Last night was a great night to be an NBA fan – 20 teams took the court, with some surprising results.  Get your scores, recaps, and video highlights!  [NBA.com]

Here ya go – enjoy your Morning Shootaroound.  [NBA]

Phil Jackson was in Madison Square Garden last night for the first team since being hired by the New York Knicks.  Naturally, then, today’s Daily Dime opens up with a look at Phil and what’s in store for the Knicks as they try and rebuild.  [ESPN]

Some NBA teams had no choice but to tank this season.  The Phoenix Suns, however, were apparently never one such team, as this piece explains.  [Sporting News]

Ah, the All Mighty Dollar!  It makes the world go ’round, right?  Don’t agree?  Then read this bit about NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s opinion on corporate logos appearing on NBA jerseys.  [Dime]  Sad, ain’t it?

Let’s get ready for the Big Dance . . . by doing a Mock NBA Draft!  [Bleacher Report]  Hey, it works for me.

I really like watching Jared Sullinger play . . . but I really want to see the Boston Celtics draft a player who can become an absolute unstoppable force down in the paint – sort of like these low-post masters.  [Sports Illustrated]

And your Boston Celtics link of the day addresses the topic of whether the Celtics will retire Ray Allen’s jersey number, and what that would mean to the sharpshooter.  [Masslive.com

Enjoy, and check in with us today as we discuss players in the NCAA tournament and their potential impact on the Boston Celtics!
