Your Morning Dump… Where a papal blessing can’t hurt

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

James Pallotta, president of the soccer team AS Roma and a minority owner of the Celtics, presented a Celtics jersey to Pope Francis at the Vatican Wednesday. Pallotta was there to represent Roma in the Coppa Italia, a match pitting the team against city rival Lazio. The Pope was given Roma gear but also a Celtics jersey with the No. 1 and “The Pope” written on the back. Can banner No. 18 be far behind?

I’m not the most religious guy on the planet but a papal blessing can’t hurt. Now if we can only get Pope Francis to wash the feet of both Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, we might squeeze another year out of this Big 3 era.

In other news, prosecutors in Washington state say they will need more time to review allegations before filing any charges against Terrence Williams.

And in case you missed last night’s Game 1 between the Heat and Pacers, here’s the only play you need to see:

Damn you, LeBron James. Damn you.

    I feel so let down after that game last night…even not being a Pacers fan. They dominated 90% of that game, its just ridiculous they lost.

    That was a hell of a game last night. I’m not sure why Vogel took out Hibbert for that play, as I would think having your best rim defender by the basket would be ideal, but what do I know. Really sucks for Indiana. They played a great game, and with James and Wade in foul trouble, this would have been the game to steal. Oh well, hopefully they’ll get them next time.

      Yeh stupid move by Vogel. You probably want your best defender on the court for the last play. Not to mention your best rebounder if there was a miss.

    Eh, pacers basically gave him a wide open layup that I could have made. Not impressed.

    Paul George hit some big shots that impressed me tho.

    Quote I agree with: “So if a player catches a ball and establishes his right foot as the pivot foot then takes off and not only lands the left but also lifts the right before the ball bounces this is NOT a travel? NBA Superstar rules I guess… TRAVEL.”

    And how many steps were there after dribble??

    • He caught the ball. Establishes right foot as pivot. He pivots, he dribbles. he reestablishes right foot as pivot foot, takes two completely legal steps en route to layup, and finishes the play. Not even close to a travel. It’s a perfectly executed move with perfect textbook footwork.

      I completely agree superstars are able to get away with ridiculousness from time to time, or even quite often, but nothing questionable about this play.

    Travel…thats all I have to say.

    I don’t care how many people in the pharmaceutical industry owe their livelihood to that guy, I will always hate him.
