Welcome to First to the Floor, a Boston Celtics channel bringing you levelheaded overreactions, occasional coherent analysis, and a few laughs (we hope). The First to the Floor team, Ben Vallis, Jake Issenberg, and Wayne Spooney, might not be traditional members of the media, but that’s some of our charm. As part of the CLNS Network, we have unique access to great guests like Abby Chin, Chris Forsberg, Drew Carter, and sometimes we even let Barstool’s Dan Greenberg join. No matter how you like your Celtics content, we’ve got you covered. Between full-length pods, live game watch-a-longs, articles for Celticsblog, clips, and film breakdowns, let us be your spot for everything Celtics. We aren’t in this for the money (otherwise we’d all be homeless by now), we do it because it’s fun. And what makes it fun is interacting with our listeners.

    Some fan therapy after a brutal loss

    Some fan therapy after a brutal loss

    The Celtics may have thought they already had this one in the bag, as they came out and laid an egg on the Mavericks' home court. We do our best to put this loss in perspective, and look ahead to Game 5 back in Boston.

    The Jays combine for 61 points to bring the Celtics within one win of Banner 18

    The Jays combine for 61 points to bring the Celtics within one win of Banner 18

    The Celtics responded to the Mavs' initial outburst in nothing less than championship fashion. With Kristaps Porzingis sidelined, Tatum and Brown stepped up, while we had HUGE performances from guys like Xavier Tillman and Sam Hauser. What a win.
    Jack Simone and Sam LaFrance of the How 'Bout Them Celtics Podcast joined live on YouTube after the game to revel in all the postgame excitement.

The Kevin McHale of Celtics Podcast

Not flashy, or trying to dominate the court with empty stats. This show is consistently going to show up and get it done at a championship level.

The three hosts , Ben, Wayne, and Jake all add something to the show and fit together super well. They all share a sense of fun and positivity, free from trash reactionary takes.

Also, Spooney’s articles (often covered in the show) are some of the best Celtics content out there. Love it.
