The Spanish Interview

Paul Pierce was in Spain for the past few days and everyone's buzzing about what he said over there.  I think it's a big pile of nothing… but since there seems to be some reaction to it… here it is. First… a bunch of Spurs fans are all hot and bothered by this. Q: Is... [More]

Kwame Brown or Patrick O’Bryant?

The Detroit Pistons – the Celtics number one threat in the Eastern conference – have signed Kwame Brown to a 2-year, $8 million deal. The good folks at Hoopsworld think this is a bargain for the Pistons. But when you compare this signing to the 2-year, $3 million deal the Celtics gave Patrick O'Bryant, you realize the Pistons are pissing away $5...

We’re Experiencing Technical Difficulties

They say you learn something new every day.  Today I learned that laptops don't like wine being dumped on them.  Who knew? So while we deal with that… here are a few links to tide you over.  Sorry.  On the bright side, at least it didn't happen in the 3rd quarter of game 6. WhatifSports... [More]

Missing Reggie Lewis

'Not again.'  Those were among the first words to tumble awkwardly off the quivering lips of Celtics fans on this day 15 years ago.  We had only just started to get past the loss of Len Bias.  And then we heard the news. Reggie Lewis was dead. The Celtics had just come off a 48... [More]

Tony Allen Ready To Move On

We're looking for every sign we can get that Tony Allen is turning some kind of corner and can be the player we think he can be.  Here's one. He said it starts with ditching the cumbersome knee brace once and for all. "I took it off because I ain't wanting to wear it anymore,"... [More]

In the admittedly way too early look at the upcoming season, Ian Thomsen has the Lakers and Celtics as the top seeds in each conference. No other team in the East appears capable of matching Boston in focus. The Pistons or Cavaliers may yet improve in that area, but — provided they remain healthy —... [More]

Now That’s Talent

Regular fans know this flexible young lady as Alison, a regular on the Celtics Dance team.  She used to be a Patriots cheerleader.  She also appeared (with clothes) in Playboy.  But just because she's got an impressive resume of being barely clothed, it didn't mean she'd automatically be back on the team.  She had to...

Open The Floodgates

All the mid-level guys who don't think they're mid-level guys are willing to leave the NBA to go make some bigger money in Europe.  It doesn't hurt that most of them are European.  Add Sasha Vujacic to the mix (and if you read further in that piece… Ricky Davis is rumored to be considering it).  Oh.....

What’s Wrong With This?

We live in a land of hypersensitivity.  So it's no shock that Nike's new ad campaign that, among other things, features a player getting a mouth full of scrotum is pissing a few people off.  Apparently, the phrase "that ain't right" while the red dude is sniffing jock strap is being misinterpreted as homophobic.  If anything, it looks...
