How big of a role does the media have in shaping the Boston Celtics roster decisions?

·2 min read

How much influence does the local media have on the Boston Celtics? We often hear a report about a potential signing or trade circulating ad nauseam, and when it actually happens it can seem like the press willed the move into existence.

But other times, very logical trades or signings never materialize; can we say that the Celtics press corp has any role at all in shaping such decisions? As a case example, the hosts of the CLNS Media “A-List” podcast take the case of Carmelo Anthony as an example and try to divine whether he will end up on Boston’s roster by the start of the 2022-23 NBA season.

Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what they have to say about media hype, the Celtics’ front office, and the curious case of a potential Melo addition.
