About

Celtics Down Under is exactly what it sounds like. We write for our NBA Boston Celtics fans in Australia. Game previews, sneaker features, opinion pieces, it’s all here. This site however is but one part of the Celtics Down Under community, the other two components being the Facebook page and the Twitter account.

The aim is to grow Celtics Down Under into a community for fellow Aussie Celtics. Where is this going?  We want to provide a space for Aussie fans to scream, cheer and moan about the team online. To be able to meet up in real life for barbies or dinners, or even plan trips to TD Garden together and cheer for the Celtics as a bunch of excited Aussie fans at the games!

Read on, and let us know what you think of the site. Better yet, join the community on Facebook – we’d love to see you there.

I’m Justin, living in Brisbane, Australia. Have been a Celtics fan since 1988 being through good & bad times. The Celtics have become like an extended part of my family. Loyalty and honor mean everything to me. I bleed green. I worship at the temple of Bill Russell. I’m not a ‘writer’, I just like getting my opinions away from my head via the internet. I love Nachos, Chess, and Music. Sometimes I’m serious, often I’m not. You decide.

Striving for world domination. Live tweets & analysis of Celtics games.
His hate for the Lakers is almost greater than his love for the Celtics. Check out Tommy’s Fan Friday feature on Red’s Army.

Joel (@joelmoss9)

Does: Podcast host

To say Joel is a bit of a basketball fanatic is a bit of understatement. If he’s not playing, watching, adjusting his Fantasy Basketball lineup or writing about basketball, then he’s debating and discussing basketball with friends and family while PS3ing Basketball games.
He has been to Celtic games in Boston annually since 2002 in the days of Antoine Walker and Paul Pierce. Joel attended all seven games of the 2010 Finals and is still haunted by the nightmare of game 7. For Joel, it’s not an obsession; Celtic Basketball is a way of life…
