We read Charley Rosen so you don’t have to

Charley Rosen… subject of perhaps the only possibly-nude publicity photo of all time… is back at it with ridiculous comments that get picked up in blogs.  I can't help it.  I'm like a smart large-mouthed bass.  I know that there's someone on the other end of that line dangling the bait… but goddammit… I can't...

We Read Bill Simmons, So You Don’t Have To

Bill Simmons recaps the NBA off-season in a two-part epic on ESPN.com. Minus all the quotes from "Almost Famous," his laughable choice as the best movie of the decade (off the top of my head – I'd take "Remember the Titans"), it's a good article about the NBA. He's not a big fan of the... [More]

It's a discussion that began on SirCharlesInCharge.com… and has since been picked up by ComcastSportsNet.  Here's how Sir Charles sees it: Here’s how I think the top 10 backcourts in the NBA shakes out: 1. Rondo/Allen 2. Nelson/Carter 3. Parker/Ginobili 4. Fisher/Bryant 5. Billups/Smith 6. Nash/Richardson 7. Williams/Brewer 8. Miller/Roy 9. Bibby/Johnson T10. Kidd/Terry T10.... [More]

Shaq More Focused Than Ever on A Title

I recently took a shot at Shaq upon learning he was spending his offseason taping a reality show. Now he's upping the ante by rasslin' with the goons on Monday Night Raw. I'm told his feet never left the ground (yes, John watches wrestling) so the injury risk was minimal, but I stand by my... [More]

Vegas still likes the Lakers

Saying Vegas doesn't know something about gambling is like saying Stephen Hawking doesn't know something about physics.  Not very likely, even when you think something is obviously wrong. But I can't help but argue with the men behind some of Vegas' biggest sports books… who currently have the Lakers installed as the favorites next year…... [More]

Big Man Swap, LA’s Reduced Offer to Odom

ESPN.com's Marc Stein says a Tyson Chandler for Emeka Okafor deal is in the works: Although Chandler ($11.7 million) and Okafor ($10.6) carry similar salaries for next season, New Orleans' apparent willingness to take on Okafor's contract — with four years remaining after next season — is a marked departure from the Hornets' recent cost-conscious...

Daniels deal hits a snag

The Pacers are reportedly dissatisfied with what the Celtics are offering – with the primary bait said to be guard Tony Allen and possibly Gabe Pruitt. As a result, according to a source close...

Rodney Stuckey slams Rasheed Wallace

(Image courtesy Need4Sheed.com) Ok, not really… but its hot, I'm hungover, and Chuck is making me dizzy because he's turned that Celtics 17 headline into a speedo and he's dancing around the office pouring champagne over his head. But Stuckey did take a subtle dig at his former teammate. "I'm just happy that we're a... [More]

Best Headline Ever

Celtics17 is my favorite site. Forever. On a serious note, it's about goddamn time someone else recognized my intellectual superiority. Memo to John, this might be a difficult time for you. Don't worry, no matter how big a star I become, I will never leave you behind.... [More]
