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.


John Karalis

Played college basketball at Emerson College and professionally in Greece. Have spent 20+ years in TV creating, producing, and reporting on news and lifestyle shows in Boston and New York. Loves interior passing more than most people. Twitter: @RedsArmy_John


Chuck McKenney

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



Jamey Burke (aka KWAPT)

Celtics fanatic from way, way back despite being born in Jersey. Boston’s been my home since 1984 & I’m the guy you go to for anything & everything about Celtics kicks. Twitter: @KWAPT


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. Twitter: @blackl0dger


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.
