How the Celtics can beat the Lakers again

Getty Images Yes, the Celtics are out fishing right now.  But they could soon be joined by the Lakers… and they'd have a hand in making that happen.  That's because the Nuggets are trying to use the blueprint the Celtics created for beating the Lakers. “Boston was so much more physical than they were,” Billups...

I Love Dahntay Jones!!

I never condone dirty play….unless it's directed at Kobe Bryant. Nuggets guard Dahntay Jones continues to take his cheap shots. Last night during the Nuggets Game 4 victory, he blatantly tripped Bryant as Kobe cut into the lane. Kobe went sliding into the lane and, here come the best part, there was no call! This... [More]

Breaking News: The Magic Feel Disrespected

I told ya'll the other day that we find it really disrespectful that everybody seems to be pulling for LeBron and Kobe to get to the Finals. Every time I look at TV, it seems like that's all anybody is talking about. It's like nobody is even giving us a shot at winning this series... [More]

Why The Olympics Are a Pain

One thing that's caught my attention in the conference finals (aside from the dramatic finishes and clutch shooting) is that LeBron James and Kobe Bryant are exhausted. LBJ had to be helped off the court after cramping up in Game 1. Kobe looked like he was going to pass out during last night's post game... [More]

Happy birthday, “Beat LA” chant

Jess Camerato reminds us that 24 years ago tonight, the now famous "Beat LA" chant was born. On May 23, 1982 the Philadelphia 76ers were on the verge of eliminating the Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Rather than cheer against the victors, the Garden crowd bellowed “Beat L.A.” as encouragement for... [More]

We Greeks are a crazy bunch

If you think just because you've seen a few fights in the stands that you've seen fans get out of control when emotions run high… then you need to see this video from game 1 of the Greek league finals between Panathinaikos and Olympiakos.
