Happy 50th Magic

I respect Magic more than any other Celtics opponent.  Without him, the Lakers-Celtics rivalry wouldn't exist as we know it.  If I was starting an All-Time team… Magic would be the point guard. Happy 50th birthday, Magic.... [More]

Who’s better: Ray or Redd?

That's the debate going on at Dime Magazine right now.  Here's part of the argument for Ray: He can still take over a game on the offensive end of the floor as the go-to guy, but he can also come in and play a lesser role that forces the defense to constantly be on the... [More]

David Stern Cannot Be Happy with This Story

Here's a sample: Partly because I disagreed with the blatant stat manipulation (that I did) and partly because I'm a Laker fan, I gave Nick Van Exel like 23 assists one game.

ESPN RISE will hold the fourth annual Boost... [More]
