Celtics Talk Podcast: With Davis shipped to the Lakers, the Celtics might not be in as much trouble as you think

LISTEN AND SUBSCRIBE

Chris Forsberg and A. Sherrod Blakely give their initial reactions to Anthony Davis being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers for a handful of assets. Ultimately, it might have been too big of a risk.

4:16 - Brian Scalabrine joins the guys to give his take on how the Davis trade will affect the Boston Celtics this season. Will the young core of the Celtics be able to take down the new-look Lakers?

10:50 - With Kyrie likely gone and Davis' fate now decided, it looks like the Celtics won't acquire a top-tier talent. The question is, do they need a top-five player?

14:31 - Another huge piece of the Celtics roster is Al Horford, who may or may not want to stay in Boston now that Danny Ainge has apparently fully committed to the youth movement.

19:50 - Are you comfortable with Terry Rozier as your starting point guard?

25:22 - Jeff Goodman of Stadium joins Chris and Sherrod and he's confident that the biggest factor in their future success is Terry Rozier and that they already have a superstar on their roster in Jayson Tatum.

31:22 - Goodman takes a quick look at who the Celtics might select on draft night at No. 14 and what they'll do with they're remaining first round picks.

36:01 - Sherrod explains why Chris and Celtics fans should be optimistic in the aftermath of the Anthony Davis trade because of the shift of power in the NBA and the Celtics combination of talent and chemistry.

That time Enes Kanter almost made Celtics coach Brad Stevens go viral

That time Enes Kanter almost made Celtics coach Brad Stevens go viral

Enes Kanter loves social media and is a big fan of Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens.

But Kanter recently discovered something his new boss: Stevens and social media don't mix.

Kanter recently joined the "Celtics Talk Podcast" for an exclusive chat and regaled co-hosts Kyle Draper and Chris Forsberg with a great story about Stevens' love for basketball -- and for staying out of the spotlight.

"I've never worked with a guy like Brad. He's amazing, man," Kanter said. "One time, we finished practiced, right? And he's playing 1-on-1 with the ball boys. And I'm like, 'Man, this is crazy. This is the only head coach I've seen trying to play 1-on-1 with the ball boys.'

Kanter, who's extremely active on social media and posts videos of his daily workouts on Twitter and Instagram, naturally wanted to document this important moment. But Stevens wasn't having it.

"He was actually pretty good," Kanter said. "He was blocking shots, making 3-pointers. I've still got the film. I was actually filming him, and he saw me and was like, 'No, no, no.' He didn't want it to go viral. But he was actually really good."

Imagine if Kanter had posted a video of Stevens (who played college basketball at Division III DePauw University, by the way) swatting a Celtics ball boy's shot into the cheap seats? Yeah, that might have gone viral...

The 27-year-old big man honored his coach's wishes and kept the footage under wraps, but maybe Stevens will allow Kanter to show us one day.
