With the NBA Finals tapping off tonight, it’s appropriate that we look at the man that his Boston Herald profile calls “the dean of NBA beat writers in continuous service with a team.”
Steve Bulpett has been on the Celtics beat since the Bird days, and has seen plenty of ups, but probably more downs during his time covering the team. The profile says that he has been on the beat for 23 years, but I’m not sure when that figure was last updated.
Bulpett is a native of Lynn and Swampscott is a graduate of the University of Dayton, where he played intramural hoops, winning a championship with teammate Dan Patrick.
Bulpett is not someone you see and hear all over your airwaves, he seems to pick and choose his spots, and just focuses on doing his job and covering the team. He’s made appearances on Comcast SportsNet, Celtics Stuff Live, and a few other outlets recently.
