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.
Kyle Draper, A. Sherrod Blakely and Chris Forsberg break down the biggest moves made on day one of NBA free agency:
2:38 - The guys begin by discussing the addition of Kemba Walker to the Celtics and how it fills the hole left by the departure of Kyrie Irving.
8:59 - Isaiah Thomas joined the NBC Sports Boston Free Agency Special and talked about how Kemba will be a good fit in Brad Steven's system.
11:45 - The biggest blow to the Celtics' roster was definitely the loss of Al Horford, who agreed to terms with the Philadelphia 76ers. Kyle explains why he thinks the 76ers are "the clear winners this offseason."
15:40 - We hear from Isaiah Thomas again, who talks about what makes Al Horford such a special player and how his contributions go beyond the stat sheet. Sherrod thinks that it's now championship or bust for the Sixers.
20:30 - The guys hit on Kyrie Irving agreeing to join the Nets with Kevin Durant, but they're not too confident with Brooklyn just yet. They also talk about Terry Rozier essentially replacing Kemba Walker in Charlotte by joining the Hornets.
26:29 - A final few questions for the Celtics and the league: What does Boston do now for a big man? What are the Knicks even doing? Who's the general manager of the year? Would the Celtics have been better off getting a second-tier point guard and using the remaining money to get a decent big?
