Comment box

Just in time for Game 1 of the NBA Finals, we've spruced up the ESPNBoston.com Celtics Blog a little bit.

As colleague Mike Reiss noted in the Patriots Blog this afternoon, one common piece of feedback we've gotten from visitors is how user-unfriendly our old comments system tended to be, and that led to a lack of discussion about much of our posts. Well, the folks at ESPN installed some upgrades and we think it'll promote better interactivity among users.

In the upper-righthand corner of the blog, you'll notice a toolbar to print, email, and comment. As comments start trickling in, a small box with the number of comments will appear, letting you gauge how much dialogue a single post has inspired. We encourage you to sound off any time.

You'll also find social media buttons in the lower-righthand corner of each blog entry to share entries on Facebook and Twitter. We're biased, but we suggest using those early and often.
