About Red’s Army

Red’s Army is THE voice of Celtics fans. We’ve been dropping knowledge and cracking jokes since 2006. Yes, we started this blog when the team was really bad.

Chuck McKenney
Co-founder

Disciple of Larry Bird. Believe the NBA peaked in the 80s. Played a little basketball at Emerson College in the 90s. If you find an impulsive and irrational take on this site, there’s a high probability it belongs to me. Twitter: @RedsArmy_Chuck

Mike Dynon

Celtics fan since 1965, O.G. and writer with Red’s Army since 2015. Brooklyn-born transplant to New England now living in Rhode Island. Graduated from Boston University, which I attended obviously because the Celtics play in Boston. Was at the old Garden for Bill Russell’s final home game and Larry Bird’s first. Once lost $30 playing poker with Jo Jo White. All-time favorite player: Don Chaney. And no, the Celtics have not retired too many numbers. Twitter: @MikeDynon

 

Liam Green

Liam was Brooklyn-born to New England parents; Jersey raised with Boston blood. a marketing agency copywriter, he spends most of the rest of his time with his (sizable) nose in a book, writing game recaps and other content for Red’s Army, occasionally reviewing music and working on fiction. you can find him tweeting about the Celtics, the NBA in general, hip-hop and David Lynch, among other things.

Rich Jensen

Rich has been a Celtics fan about as long as he’s been anything. A writer, programmer and historic preservation consultant with more library cards than credit cards. Born and raised in wide open spaces. Twitter: @RichAJensen
 

 

 

Kevin Kourafas

Born just south of Boston to a family full of townies, Kevin grew up immersed in Boston sports. He officially started bleeding Green back in 2002 after that improbable comeback against the Nets in the East finals. He’s written for various pop culture websites over the years and is now a contributor for Red’s Army, where he’s focused mainly on game recaps. When he’s not working with the developmentally disabled or writing about the Celtics, you can usually find him on Twitter musing about politics, movies, or music. You can find him in the 300s at the Garden or @oK_Kourafas

Ben Mark

Ben has spent the past three years contributing to Red’s Army, primarily with his weekly morning Dump (currently on Thursday’s). He just missed the glory days of the 80s Celtics, so his formative years were spent going to the last years of the Garden and early years in the Fleet Center cheering on Dino Radja, David Wesley and Greg Minor. He has vivid memories as a 9-year-old of being in the house when Acie Earl scored 40 points on the Celtics as a member of the Raptors and wondering whether anything in the world still made sense. His favorite Celtic of all time is Paul Pierce.

 

Neil Sharma

Neil has been an avid supporter of the Celtics since the dark days of Rick Pitino. He closely follows the day-to-day happenings of the NBA, and is a student of the salary cap and player spending rules. Although he shares some characteristics with “green teamers,” he prides himself on being a pragmatic Celtics fan. Neil loves the dominance of modern NBA point guards, but yearns for the days of post-up big men. He’s a proud native of Sharon, MA and graduate of George Washington University. His best take: Isaiah Thomas would become a star after getting traded to Boston. His worst: The Warriors would regret firing Mark Jackson. He thinks Danny Ainge will trade for Anthony Davis within the next few years.
