I think this is my favorite Celtics pod

Loving the new shows! Especially the First to the Floor guys. Really nice balance between raw fandom and legit analysis. Love the guests, love the tempo. Great stuff.

5 Stars

As usual, Adam Taylor is insightful and entertaining. Great blog for Celtic fans and draft heads. Highly recommend.’

Negative negative negative

I come to listen to this podcast and it is the most negative dribble I’ve ever heard. Even after big 20 point playoff wins in an elimination game, you’re still so negative. It’s a vibe killer. On to better podcasts like The Athletic and Locked On. Take a moment and think that someone may spend some of their day listening to this podcast to get some hope about the celtics and you completely dash that and make the person feel worse for listening. Cmon guys. 0/10.
