Big Al Tears ACL

He's out indefinitely. Al Jefferson, the Timberwolves' best player, will likely miss the rest of the season with a torn knee ligament. He suffered the injury Sunday night in New Orleans near the end of the Wolves' 101-97 loss to the Hornets. This really does make me sad.  Big Al is not just talented, but... [More]

Matt Bleepin Bonner?

For as bad as Ray blew it at the end – coughing the ball up on an inbounds pass with 20 seconds left – you have to hand it to the Spurs' Matt Bonner (23 pts, 8 reb). The dude killed us today. However, the Celtics were able to overcome, cough, Bonner's greatness, and still... [More]

Finals Preview?

The San Antonio Spurs are in town today to take on the defending champs.  The Spurs have a defensive mentality, dominant big man, quick-as-lightning point guard, and a wing that is capable of scoring in bunches.  So they're exactly the kind of team that can make it through the west and come back here in...
