A quick glance at David Lee's girlfriend also helps. The highlight of the week belongs to D-Wade. His... [More]

Your Morning Dump… where the rebounds are still bothersome

“Unfortunately everyone will say it was the bigs who were responsible,” coach Doc Rivers said. “But our bigs were in help all night because their guys were beating our guards.

Better facial: DWade on Andy, or Kemp on Lister?

I'm partial to the Shawn Kemp dunk myself.  The cuff-and-windmill action paired with the double-barreled pointing at the end just make it for me. State your case in the comments... [More]

The quote in the headline?  That belongs to Al Horford… and he's talking about the Celtics. After yesterday’s practice, Kevin Garnett was asked if he considers the Atlanta Hawks a rival. The Celtics forward responded, “Not at all.” That comment didn’t surprise Al Horford, though the Hawks forward believes the C’s know they’ll have a... [More]

I’m lovin’ Rondo’s new move

Rajon Rondo has unveiled a new move this season: the quick change of direction.  It's a simple move, but it's so nasty.  He busted it out twice against the Jazz. Very simply… he slows down and makes it look like he's going to take the ball out and set the play and then BAM…. he... [More]

The Morning Dump… Where Shelden Williams Lies about the Hawks

Does he have something to prove to the Hawks? “Not anymore,’’ Williams said. “The first couple times I played against them, I would tell you so.
