The Celtics Talk podcast from NBC Sports Boston is hosted by Insiders A. Sherrod Blakely, Chris Forsberg, and Pre/Postgame host Kyle Draper. Guests include players, coaches, management and media members from around the NBA.
In this week's episode of the "Celtics Talk" podcast, A. Sherrod Blakely and Kyle Draper discuss the latest news around the Boston Celtics.
Off the top, we discuss (1:40) where the Celtics currently sit in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Can they overtake the Cavs for the top spot?
Next, we discuss rookie Jaylen Brown (7:05), who has been playing really well since the All-Star break, but also got into a little bit of an argument with Marcus Smart on the bench. Could this be a lingering issue? The guys also talk about the under appreciated Avery Bradley (13:10) and the decision Danny Ainge could have with the top two overall players in the draft probably being point guards (16:07), and one of them might have a very "supportive" father.
(21:58) Sherrod talks with 2016 Celtics draft pick Guerschon Yabusele, who played this past year for the Shanghai Sharks in China. Yabusele talks about his injured ankle, the possibility of getting a few games in this year in Maine in the D-League, and his goal to make the team next season.
