The Knicks COULD get their coveted free agent

It looks like the New York Knicks could get the free agent they're dying for.  All this fuss has been about Marcin Gortat, right?  What?  LeBron who?  What a funny name that is.  Must be made up. It's looking like the market for Marcin is gonna be a good one.  I'm starting to think this... [More]

Draft day is Ainge Day

The NBA draft is 18 days away, and the Celtics have what amounts to a throw-away pick at #58 overall (Minnesota has our #1 pick via the Garnett trade)… but don't expect Danny Ainge to do absolutely nothing.  As was noted in the Herald today, NBA Draft day is essentially Danny Ainge day.  Take a...

Blueprint for beating Kobe and the Lakers

Chuck and I were swilling beers last night and talking hoops and just marveling at Kobe Bryant's 3rd quarter in Game 1 of the Finals.  Simply put, no matter how much we hate that guy, he put on an amazing show.  The Lakers looked unbeatable.  But… they're not.
