Hall of Famer Bob Cousy, who revolutionized basketball in the 1950s and '60s, turns 90 today. "Now I want to make it to 100!" the ex-Celtic guard told NBC Sports Boston's Paul Lucey. "When I turned 80, the goal was to make it to 90 . "Celtics fans are in for one exciting season.
Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown says there is "no question" that his team will be the Eastern Conference representatives in the NBA Finals next season. Brown made his feelings known on CJ McCollum's "Pull Up" podcast, when asked about Boston's championship chances. No question about it," Brown said.
