A Lot Of People Will Be Wrong

Ladies and Gentlemen… the picks are in.  Not a lot of green in there, huh?  So there it is… the Celtics are officially the big underdog.  The 66 win, #1 in defense, 3-headed offensive threat Celtics are expected to be a mere speedbump to the one-man offenisve show that plays mediocre defense.  A lot of people are going to...

“When Did They Flip You?”

Not Boston, not Detroit, not anybody. They have... [More]

Just Like (Very) Old Times

Over the next five days we'll be beaten over the head with stories of this renewed rivalry. Magic vs Bird. McHale's clothesline of Kurt Rambis. Henderson stole the ball. Magic's baby sky hook. Some will reach back even further to the 60s. For an old bastard like myself, this is heaven. But I also realize a... [More]

B-B-Bye Bye, Dee-troit

I must admit, after Detroit dropped 31 on the Celtics in the 3rd quarter and Bennett Salvatore robbed Paul Pierce of a 4-point play by calling the worst offensive foul in the history of the NBA, I started preparing some negative rants for this blog. While I may have quit, the Celtics surely didn't. A 23-6... [More]

Stephen A. Smith Makes Me Want To Vomit

One year ago today, Kobe Bryant pulled his big douchebag move and demanded a trade from the Lakers.  Now, one year later, the Lakers are in the finals.  Now everyone's blowing Kobe because he led his team to the finals… including Stephen A. Smith on ESPN Radio's Mike... [More]

Pistons Perception

It's always good to peek outside your own bubble, and by bubble I mean the Boston sports media scene. Fans of New England teams are generally beaten over the head with negativity and tales of curses – even during the good years.
