Rick Barry vs LeBron James

Rick Barry – one of the NBA's all-time great scorers and master of the between-the-legs free throw – has some words for LeBron James: "He's got major flaws in his game," Barry said. "He's six years into the NBA. How can a man six years into the NBA with his talent have a major flaw... [More]

We’ve Been Here Before

Ever take a wrong turn somewhere… or miss an exit… and then you have to double back to wherever you're going?  And on the way, have you ever had a wife or girlfriend in your ear saying "we're lost… why don't you pull over?  Why don't guys ever ask for direction?  Why aren't you saying... [More]

More Kobe Douchiness

The most arrogant professional athlete on the planet thinks he could play football for his beloved Eagles: “I’d be a wide receiver,” said the 6-6, 205-pound Kobe Bryant. “I’d be a bad (man) too.  No more red zone issue,” he explained. “Just throw it over the top. I’m (Randy) Mossin’ it.” Just what the Eagles... [More]

Mmmm… Oranges

The best part of last night's game, by far, was the 15 second peek into the Celtics locker room just before the second half started.  We were treated to Kendrick Perkins in street clothes, eating half an orange grove while Doc spoke. I mean… look at that pile of orange wedges!!  I'm not exaggerating when... [More]

The Preservation of Kevin Garnett

The Celtics need KG for more than defense.  They need him for energy… so sitting out the last three 4th quarters will go a long way to making sure he has the energy to give. It's part testament to his greatness, part over-reliance on him to carry the team emotionally.  But that's where the Celtics... [More]

How’s Our Ass Taste?

With Phoenix playing back-to-back road games and their 4th game in 5 nights, we knew the Celtics had a very good chance to win this one. But I didn't expect Phoenix to lay down quite like this. Boston College would have put up more of a fight. The Celtics led by 15 after 1, 30... [More]

Are We Playing NJ Again?

Holy crap – the Celtics are kicking the crap out of the Suns. They are doing everything right. Phoenix might set a record for most turnovers and offensive fouls in a game. Celtics up 64-34 at the half.... [More]

The All Star Jerseys

Apparently… these things are hi-tech (a.k.a. "ugly") From Men's Fitness: Together, the jersey and shorts are 31% lighter than the typical NBA uniform. Before, layers of twill were sewn together, bogging down the garment. Now added elements, like conference names and player numbers, are bonded on with a heated glue. From a comfort standpoint, the...
