Boston Celtics

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JULY 06: Basketballs are shown in a ball rack before a game.

The Maine Red Claws are no more. On Monday morning, the team’s president Dajuan Eubanks announced the rebranding of the organization to the Maine Celtics.

With the new name comes a new logo. A lobster is still the centerpiece, although this one has been beefed up and painted green. There’s also new fonts – one featuring a claw as the first ‘C’ in Celtics, and the other a Maine version of the big league club’s ‘Boston’ script.

This represents another step in the relationship between the Boston Celtics and their G-League affiliate. In 2019, the Celtics franchise officially purchased the then-Red Claws from the original owner Bill Ryan.

Some fans had strong reactions to the rebranding, including our own Adam Jones and Christian Arcand. Over the past few months, the Maine team has become a frequent topic on the night show.
