still kidding, but the "Boston Lobsters" would've been a great alternative-reality name for our dear Celtics.

BAHSTAH LAHBSTAHS ah the bahlls and they're's no otha reason why

LOBcity!

(Lobsters is, sadly, just as good a name as 'Pelicans' in all honesty)
(and to the actual topic here: Maine, WTF? I will not say hello to the "Maine Celtics", or your logo with a lobster with huge pecs)

This signals to me a closer relationship. They like the g league and will probably use it as developmental Squad.

What is wrong with Maine? I would have preferred Hartford so I can go, but Portland is awesome .

New logo sucks so many balls

I love Maine, sorry if it seemed I intimated otherwise. Just not feeling this logo/name change.

Took a look for old merch today online and I swear they bought out and removed any existence of their old name! No Merch to be found anywhere! Crazy.
