Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke broke down Tacko Fall's visit to the teacups at Canobie Lake Park before moving on to the Shamrock Team USA's move down under in preparation for the FIBA World Cup. With only a scrimmage against Spain to discuss, it was time to dig deep back into the vault. But first Justin had to completely embarrass himself on the Manscaped ad read.

Then in the show's second half, the CSL guys took exception to Sean Grande's comparison on Celtics Beat of Horford's move to Philly to Ray Allen's departure to South Beach. Finally, in the outtakes, it was a revisiting of the Winning Plays' pod discussion of what happened if the Kyrie Irving trade never happened. In short... it's a strange scenario of dogs and cats living together.

Aug 14, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke owned up to their promise to discuss the potential availability of Bradley Beal in trade discussions and how interested the Celtics should be.

In the show's second half the CSL guys looked at the USA Basketball scrimmage and how Pop and Kerr can help Brad Stevens in building a winner in Boston. Before wrapping up to discuss hate and discontent for Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant, Justin and Jon looked at the recently released Celtics schedule and which dates they have circled on the calendar for particular interest.

Aug 8, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke couldn't wait to talk about the Team USA x Team Shamrock crossover and the rookies showing up at Fenway for last night's Red Sox game. However, it wasn't before the inanity of those topics turned to the future of Jaylen Brown through the prism of a pair of CelticsBlog articles which weighed the decision making surrounding a contract extension.

Another illuminating article from NBC Sports Boston's Chris Forsberg tried to trace Kyrie Irving's transition from "if you'll have me" to chatting with Spencer Dinwiddie about playing together just 8 weeks later. The Kyrie situation is just about in everyone's rear view mirror but understanding why it went awry is a necessary evil.

Jul 26, 2019
Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke are pretty excited to see the Team USA Celtics compete in the FIBA World Cup in September, but more importantly it will be great to see Kemba, Tatum, and maybe even Smart and Jaylen building chemistry in the pre-season. 
 
In the show's second half, the guys looked at Keith Smith's article on CelticsBlog which provided a heaping pile of nuggets on the 2020 Boston Celtics. From Kemba to Tacko to Tremont Waters, there's a series of good stuff there to chew on.
 
And in the outtakes the CSL fellas look ahead to fitting the JayJayHay minutes together and then considering the next episode focused on Bradley Beal.
Jul 17, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke recapped a successful run through the Las Vegas Summer League that provided a glimmer of positive thought to a dour 2019 for the Boston Celtics. The guys debated which of the Celtics rookies would have the bigger impact in the season to come.

 
In the show's second half, with Kemba Walker introduced to the world on Tuesday, the CSL guys looked at his impact in Boston. Will he be an immediate fan favorite? What role will his leadership play in assessing his impact to the team. 
 
Finally in the outtakes, Justin wanted to talk about the culture and whether staff departures over the past several years had some impact on the chemistry issues of the 2019 squad. A good chat in here...
Jul 10, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke surveyed the new NBA world order with Kawhi and Paul George with the Clippers and seemingly the majority of the NBA talent set in their new homes. Despite losing a pair of All Stars, and gaining another, the Celtics just might be in a spot where they can make a run toward the NBA Finals. 

Doing so requires a lot of help form the rookies chosen in June's NBA Draft, but there are a number of signs of hope from the Summer League games so far. Are there answers for the shallow center rotation? Ummm.....
 
Lastly, there's some wiggling in the outtake not to be missed.
Jul 1, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke were happy with the Celtics' biggest free agent signing in franchise history, but the most impactful moves of the early hours of free agency came when Kyrie and KD joined up in Brooklyn and Al Horford went to Philly.  The loss of Horford stings and Jon and Justin chatted about what the Celtics will do without their anchor. Then the CSL guys looked around the league...  This was a wild one folks.

Jun 24, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke looked at Thursday's NBA Draft as the Celtics turned page from the Kyrie - Horford era... or did they?

Jon and Justin looked at the Celtics choices of Romeo Langford, Grant Williams, Carsen Edwards, and Tremont Waters and the likelihood of their making an impact on the team this season. 
 
In the post credits outtake, Justin had an interesting name to attach to the Celtics' newly create max slot.
Jun 17, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke picked up the pieces following the trade of Anthony Davis to the Lakers with the CSL guys on opposite ends of this one. Jon's disappointment at the inability to start a prolonged period of Celtics dominance with Davis and Kyrie at the helm remained strong, but the cost of the Lakers deal was so over the top... well, it's hard to be that upset. Justin, on the other hand, was over the moon and can't wait to see how Tatum, Brown, and Smart lead the franchise into a new era.

Before wrapping up, we got into a little bit of a draft talk and how the "flatness" of the draft from 4 to 14 or so impacts Boston and their targets.
Jun 13, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke ran through an avalanche of Celtics rumors of the day starting with the Woj Bomb that the Celtics have entered serious trade discussions to acquire Anthony Davis. Coming just hours after SI's cover story on Rich Paul where Paul states Davis will hit free agency next summer if he's dealt to Boston, the concept of Boston pushing ahead on trading for Davis is seriously intriguing. Then coupling the interest in Davis with Kyrie's questionable future... it's a wild time in the Celtics offices on Causeway Street. Not to mention Kevin Durant's achilles injury and what that does to Kyrie's supposed plans to pair up with KD in New York... in Brooklyn or Manhattan with the Knicks. 

Whew.... 1 week till the Draft.

Jun 3, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke discussed the results of Anthony Davis's meeting with the Pelicans and apparent continued request for a trade. Coupling that news with continued "reports" from "reporters" indicating where the mercurial Kyrie Irving wants to play next season, Justin has had just about enough with all of the chit chat.

In the show's second half, the CSL guys looked at a Kyrie and Al-less Boston in 2020, how the Celtics could pivot into a youth movement, and how Houston's reported opening the market on their roster could combine.
 
In the outtakes... it was Jon and Justin and getting to the heart (or is it mind) of what makes this Kyrie situation so challenging for all of us.

May 28, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke reacted to the Raptors dispatching the Bucks in six games whether that impacted their view of the Celtics disappointing season. You won't be shocked at the answer. Next up the guys reacted to a listener email concerning  the point guard position in 2020 following Kyrie's uncertain future and Rozier's recent napalm laced comments to ESPN. Then the hallmark CSL shows in May in days gone past returned... it's draft time. Jon gassed up Brandon Clarke but didn't exactly show the same love to some Wildcats.

And this outtake is not one to be missed... without apology.

May 20, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke kicked around Steve Bulpett's reporting this weekend concerning the Celtics' strong position in acquiring Anthony Davis and the tie that binds toward a Kyrie Irving return to Boston. Then Justin wanted to gaze down a dystopian future without AD, Kyrie, or the Jays... which ends next summer with some surprisingly good news.

May 15, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke ripped apart the Celtics' "effort" against the Milwaukee Bucks in five measly games last week. It was the worst of times... and the worst of times. Kyrie's mental breakdown over the course of games 2-5 and the entire Celtics squad laying down has thrown the entire psychotic summer of free agency into a overdrive.

After the break, the results of the Draft Lottery, which put the Pelicans in place to draft Zion and trade Anthony Davis, helped to shape the Celtics and the trade market they will enter for Davis. The Knicks and Lakers falling out short of the top spot helped Boston, but Justin isn't sure he wants to make a move for Davis with Splash Brothers 2.0 in Jaylen and Jayson ready to grow in green.
May 2, 2019
Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke broke down the Celtics-Bucks series as it heads to Boston all tied up 1-1. Though each team has a blow out under their belts, the Celtics pulling off a win in Milwaukee provides the C's with homecourt advantage and the confidence they can win on the road. Though the role officiating plays in setting a tone in each game can nullify any potential advantages.
 
In the show's second half, Jon and Justin looked at how the Celtics can find success in the face of a Bucks defense which prevents easy looks at the rim and had been sending extra people at Kyrie Irving.  To wrap up, the life and legacy of John Havlicek came into focus and how 'John' was such an amazing man and basketball legend deserving of far more praise than he receives.
 
The outtakes moved on the games 3 and 4 and where this series is going from here. You'll need Celtics green shaded glasses for this one.
Apr 22, 2019
Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke are riding high off of the Celtics' four game sweep of the Indiana Pacers, looking nothing like the team that struggled through the regular season. Gordon Hayward's emergence has helped the Erotic City 5 lineup become the closing unit, just as the preseason predictions suggested. 
 
In the show's second half, Justin and Jon took opposing sides on the Kyrie's shot selection and the whether it is necessary for Kyrie to be "his best self" in taking long 3's. Then the show turned toward the Milwaukee Bucks and how a 2nd round series against Giannis and Co. might shake out. 
Apr 12, 2019
Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke looked ahead to the upcoming first round of the NBA Playoffs and the Celtics' prospects against the Indiana Pacers. Marcus Smart's injury adds some challenges to Brad Stevens' lineups and rotations, but the CSL guys saw some opportunities for players to assert themselves.
 
In the show's second half, Justin and Jon looked toward the NBA Draft and where the final standings left the Celtics with a bushel of draft pick options... which may or may not be impacted by the Anthony Davis sweepstakes.
 
And in the outtakes... it was time to go in on Dwyane Wade and jump to The Truth's defense.
Apr 2, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke discussed the Celtics continued 1 step forward, 1 step back season following a decent win against the Pacers, an abominable loss to the Nets, and an irritating win over the Heat.  How this Celtics team gets out of its own way in the playoffs and how the culture of this team continues to be a challenge for Brad Stevens. With only four games remaining in the regular season, 50 wins seems like a significant long shot. 

Mar 25, 2019

Celtics Suck Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke tried to valiantly talk their way through the Chutes and Ladders 2019 Celtics season. The losses have been horrendous but the solutions are not easy: do you really let a top 10 NBA player walk in July? Do you trade away young blue chip players for a top 5 NBA star to play with the above mentioned mercurial PG?

In the show's second half, it was all about who sets the tone for the team and whether such a tone can change with weeks remaining in the regular season.
 
Do the Celtics have us, as the Patriots did 3 months ago, right where they want us... questioning their potential and expecting an early round loss?
Mar 19, 2019
Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin and Jon Duke looked back on the Celtics 2-1 week highlighted by the return of THE LITTLE GUY... Isaiah Thomas. Thomas's return to Boston, punctuated by an emotional tribute video, brought back fond memories of Thomas's teams in Boston and the comparison to the current bi-polar roster makes the memories even fonder.
 
In the show's second half, the out sized impact of Marcus Morris came into focus and who could replace his prominent role in time for the playoffs. With Malcom Brogdan and possibly Kyle Lowry injured... is the field in the east clearing for the dysfunctional Celtics?
Mar 13, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's Jon Duke and Justin Poulin caught up after the Soul Plane made it's return to Boston with the Celtics finishing their California trip with a 3-1 record.  Jon and Justin got into the new Kyrie, UNO games on the team plane, and to wrap up the show, the guys looked at the Eastern Conference playoff picture. Which matchups work best for the Celtics? Listen and find out.

Mar 4, 2019

Celtics Stuff Live's own Podfathers, Justin Poulin and Jon Duke, discussed the down and down week for the Celtics as the only consistent effort was a poor one. Continued questions about the team's ability to play together and the impact of changes coming this summer have reigned over the club. Jon and Justin looked at where a larger role for Jaylen Brown might come, but that was only the an appetizer to a longer discussion.... where Justin and Jon take opposing sides on the future of Kyrie in Boston.  

Feb 25, 2019
Tell me when you've heard this before... the Celtics played well against a really good team and then disappointed against a horrendous team.
 
Justin and Jon looked into the leadership problem on this team and why they seem to be unable to consistently do much of anything. Is it on Kyrie? And what about Brad?
 
Speaking of Brad, Jon and Justin looked at the rotations employed and what it might take for Jaylen Brown to get a longer look, Marcus Morris to get a shorter look, and maybe for Rozier not to get a look at all.
 
In the outtakes... we've all had enough of the public relations effort employed by Kyrie, no matter if he is right or not.
Feb 19, 2019

It's the All Star Break, but there is no respite from the rumors and speculation surrounding the Celtics summer of stars. Kyrie, Anthony Davis, and Kevin Durant spent the past weekend in a bromantic whirlwind that set Twitter ablaze. Jon and Justin discussed the wild weekend and how the confluence of rumors could impact the Celtics in 2020 and beyond. This show went pretty wild as Jon became excited at the prospect of a Kyrie, KD, and Brow lineup and Justin was... let's just say just a tad less than impressed. 

In the show's outtakes... Jon and Justin looked ahead to the Bucks and Bulls games this week. Or at least Justin did...
Feb 11, 2019

The expletives were flying for Celtics fans after a pair of dispiriting losses to Lebron's Lakers and Doc's Clippers and Celtics Stuff Live was no exception... expletives omitted of course. Jon and Justin laid into the Celtics' effort before looking at how much responsibility Brad Stevens bears and whether he is capable of coaching all star players.  Speaking of Kyrie, his role as a leader has been discussed but perhaps more importantly is how well Kyrie and his teammates are meshing as he moves in and out of the lineup.

In the show's second half, the show focused on Mook Morris's comments on the team not having any fun and not playing for each other. Justin looked to Al Horford's leadership capabilities to pull the team together on the defensive end on a team clearly in need of unifying forces. Without the ability to come together, Jon looked at Kyrie's pending free agency and how much his unhappiness deeply effects his July 1 decision.
