Your Morning Dump... Where we ponder the bizarre new logo for the Maine Celtics. And also Game 2 vs the Nets

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

The minor league affiliate of the Boston Celtics is changing its name to match the NBA franchise.

The Maine Red Claws announced Monday that the Portland-based team will now be called the Maine Celtics. The team plays in the NBA G League and made its debut in the 2009-10 basketball season.

The name change is “a nod to our diehard fan base, which extends throughout the great state of Maine,” Boston Celtics President Rich Gotham said in a statement.
