Kiss Boobie Goodbye

Cavs backup point guard Daniel Gibson will miss the remainder of the Celtics series due to a separated shoulder. Gibson, one of the Cavs' best perimeter shooters, left in pain early in the fourth quarter Wednesday night following a collision and did not return.  The team said an MRI revealed a first-degree separation and estimated...

LeBron Was Better In Game 4

Almost everywhere you look, you will read something about Game 5 being LeBron's "finest performance" of the series.  That's a total load of crap written by people who only look at the "points" column of the box score and don't really watch games. Yes, LeBron pumped in 35 points… but 23 of them were in... [More]

KG Is Mentally Unstable… In A Good Way

I've said it a million times before… and I'll say it again… No trancendent athlete is well adjusted.  The all have some trigger, some fault, some instability that drives them to do things that other people with great talent can't… or won't.  Long after we've all calmed down, or quit practicing… or stopped lifting… these...

I knew Cleveland Wouldn’t Disappoint Me

I knew Cleveland Wouldn’t Disappoint Me

Oh Cleveland… I knew you had a mentally retarded rapper on YouTube somewhere.  You couldn't let Atlanta hog all the glory. I'm guessing this guy wants us to stop fouling LeBron.  He's also smoking dope.  You know… I used to argue that marijuana was no big deal… but now I see that it clearly kills... [More]

Celtics Don’t Care What Stern Thinks

David Stern "suggested" that teams cut out all the fireworks.  The Celtics, much to my delight, don't seem to care much about what he's suggesting. “We’re going to do our usual show, get the fans fired up, get the energy behind our players,” [Celtics team president Rich] Gotham said.  "It’s been working out pretty well...

One to Go

Exhale. Take deep breaths. Think happy thoughts. I was doing all those things in final two minutes of this one. The Celtics beat the Cavs 96-89 to take a 3-2 series lead. This was one helluva rollercoaster ride. Cleveland jumped out to a 14 point lead thanks in part to LeBron's 23 first half points. But... [More]

Not Looking Good

LeBron went off in the first half. He dropped 23 points as the Cavs lead 46-43 at the break. On the plus side, the Celtics have played like absolute garbage and only trail by 3. Ray Allen continues to suck, making us long for Brian Scalabrine in his place. And here's hoping Danny Ainge tells... [More]

More Chatting With The Enemy

We've taken time from some back and forth with Rick from WaitingForNextYear.com.  If you missed it… here's our first conversation (pre-series) and our second conversation (after game 1).
