The Donaghy Effect?

A couple of weeks ago, the NBA decided it wanted to get $1 million from Tim Donaghy as reimbursement for their investigation into his gambling (and also a little something… you know… for the effort).  Donaghy's lawyers responded by dropping a bombshell that refs fixed past playoff games… and they did it right before the biggest game… of...

We Really Want This One

A win in Game 3 would have been nice…. but its not exactly critical to the Celtics chances of winning it all.  Game 4 isn't really "critical" either… but this is the one we all should REEEEEEEEEEEALLY want.  Going up 3-1 in the series would make all of our lives so much easier (like "what...

“Get Your Rest”

All day Wednesday, ESPN was including in its Finals coverage a clip of Doc Rivers after the game telling his guys to "Get your rest."  I thought it was an interesting point for him to be stressing, but I figured he just wanted to make sure the guys got his message.  What I didn't know is... [More]

“I Think I’ll Play”

X-Rays are negative… nobody's 100%… and Rajon Rondo says he' thinks he's gonna play.  The video of him talking after practice (which he sat out) is here. What Rondo actually has is a bone bruise, and not a sprained ankle.  We'll see how he does.  Here's some other post-practice videofrom Posey, Powe, Ray and Sam.... [More]

Rondo Just 50%?

I'm really concerned about Rondo's ankle. In his blog, our speedy point guard talks about how the injury  happened and how he's feeling: If you were watching the game you know that I injured my ankle in the third quarter. It happened on a fast break and I rolled it. I think I may have... [More]

Win Rajon’s Headband

Rondo's putting up trivia questions on his blog… and handing out autographed headbands to people who get the right answer.  Here's the first one: We'll start with a high school question. I went to Oak Hill Academy and 2004 I set the school record for most assists in a game with 31. Who's record did... [More]

Bad News, Good News

The bad news for me is that just about every team in the NBA is now being run or coached by a player I grew up watching.  The hirings of Terry Porter, Vinny Del Negro and Michael Curry (all hired by players of the same era) just add to the list.  Its bad news for Tom Thibodeau… who, we... [More]

That’s A Lot Of Shirts

That’s A Lot Of Shirts

That's WZLX's spoof of the Kevin Durant ad where he takes off a bunch of shirts.  Only… instead of the next NBA phenom removing shirts… it's a husky radio producer who rocks a playoff beard that would make every toothless hockey enforcer proud. Third shirt in is priceless.  Very well done.... [More]

I Enjoyed Kobe Too

There was Kobe Bryant last night… gliding through the air… flailing like a cartoon character falling off a cliff every time he got touched… and shooting.  Oh… was Kobe ever shooting.  A lot. And I loved it. Kobe shot 12 of 20 last night.  Better than 50%.  Good shooting night from Kobe.  But it was... [More]

Trend Vs. Exception

The Celtics got a combined 19 points on 8 of 36 shooting from Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. The Lakers got a combined 13 points on 5 of 18 shooting from Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol. Celtics fans are saying "We feel good going into Game 4 because we were close the whole way through... [More]
