|Boston Celtics and WEEI honor Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell on their 1,000th NBA broadcast together||02.02.12 at 3:37 pm ET|
Grande and Max are about to hit a big broadcasting milestone. Below is a press release on the accomplishment:
Play-by-Play duo have called Celtics games on radio since the 2001 season
BOSTON (February 2, 2012) ‘ The Boston Celtics and WEEI will honor its radio play-by-play team Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell prior to their 1,000th Celtics broadcast tomorrow night at TD Garden. Grande and Max will be presented a plaque by Celtics Managing Partner Steve Pagliuca, Team President Rich Gotham, Entercom Senior Vice President Julie Kahn and Vice President of Programming for WEEI Jason Wolfe to mark the milestone in a pre-game ceremony prior to the team’s home game vs. the New York Knicks.
“The entire Boston Celtics organization would like to congratulate Sean Grande and Cedric Maxwell on their 1,000th broadcast together,” Boston Celtics President Rich Gotham said. “Grande and Max have become the voices of the Celtics on the radio for a whole generation of fans. They have exhibited great chemistry and professionalism throughout their partnership and we look forward to many more seasons of high quality play-by-play and analysis from them.”
Grande and Max began calling Celtics games together in 2001 on 1510 AM. In 2005, the game broadcasts moved to WRKO, and in 2007 to their current home on WEEI. During their 1,000 broadcasts Grande and Max have provided the call for some of the great moments in Celtics history, including, Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarter Finals against the Philadelphia 76ers, which marked the team’s first playoff series win since 1992, the Celtics historic comeback in the 2002 Eastern Conference Finals against the New Jersey Nets, “Max night” when Cedric’s number was retired on December 15, 2003, the epic Game 7 against Cleveland in 2008 Eastern Conference Semifinals and of course, the night the Celtics won Banner 17 defeating the Los Angeles Lakers on June 17, 2008.
“It’s been my honor to work with Grande and Max for so many years. Sean and I started at WEEI together many moons ago and he is without a doubt, one of the best announcers in the NBA today,” Jason Wolfe, Vice President of Programming for WEEI said. “Max has made the transition from player to analyst as smoothly as any former player I’ve worked with and I’m so proud to be able to share in this terrific milestone with them.”

|Live Blog: Celtics look to withstand absence of Ray Allen for fourth straight win||01.04.12 at 6:09 pm ET|
The Celtics suddenly find themselves in first place in the Atlantic Division with a modest 3-3 record. They will host the last-place (1-5) Nets at TD Garden tonight, with Boston looking for its fourth straight victory. The Celtics appear to be facing an increased degree of difficulty, however, as WEEI Celtics play-by-play man Sean Grande reported on Wednesday afternoon that guard Ray Allen, the team’s leading scorer with 20.0 points per game and playing at a virtually unprecedented level for a shooting guard in his mid-30s, is unlikely to play due to the flu.
