In a week that brought us some much needed regular season basketball, we had just as much off-court news as we did on-court stuff.
The biggest event came Tuesday night, when the Celtics stunned the Cavaliers. Despite the win, It took exactly 3 hours for us to start bitching about Ray Allen's minutes. It took the same amount of time for the Cavs to bitch about Shaq.
We were treated to a blowout for the home opener. The introduction and Paul Pierce's speech may have been the best part.
Glen Davis (and cast) made his first public appearance since the infamous early morning fight. While an embarassed Big Baby apologized, we were reminded (by Shank) that Larry Bird pulled a similar stunt 24 years ago.
He won't sign. He will sign. He's getting traded for T-Mac. We heard numerous reports ($9 million vs $12 million) about Rajon Rondo's contract situation. Regardless of what happens before the Monday deadline, this we know for sure, Rondo has been dominant.
Of course, it can't be a Laker-free week on Reds Army. We ripped intelligently countered Scottie Pippen's case the Lakers could win 72+ games. And we saw that hilarious NBA promo featuring Odom and the trophy.
We also published our first sneaker review – the Converse Weapon. What won't be published is Tim Donaghy's book revealing league referees as frauds. Fortunately, we have excerpts of all the shady stories.
