Where Heart Attacks Happen

  Chicago – we'd like to introduce you to Paul Pierce (26 pts, 7 reb) the NBA Finals MVP. (We'll excuse you for missing that 1st free throw with 2 seconds left). Credit to the Bulls, they nearly forced a 2nd OT. Fortunately, Brad Miller choked – on his blood. I'll admit it, I quit... [More]

This Guy is Beating Us?

When did Kirk Hinrich morph into Kobe Bryant? This dude is killing us tonight. Meanwhile, Paul Pierce's legs look awfully heavy. Needless to say, I don't have a good feeling about this one.... [More]

I’m Guessing Ben Gordon Will Play

Just watched WBZ do a live shot from the Garden and Ben Gordon was there, taking jumpers. He wasn't really getting up off the floor, so it's possible he'll miss the game.  But he wasn't limping around or anything from what I saw.  He's officially a "game time decision."  But my money is on Gordon...

The Ascension Of Rajon Rondo

He has slashed his way into the national consciousness.  Every layup, every rebound, every pass that impossibly finds the hands of a teammate… elevates Rajon Rondo closer to the upper echelon of NBA stardom. Of course, we all knew he belonged there in the first place.  But the ascension of a player from good to... [More]

Anyone Seen Eddie House?

The Celtics bench has done squat in this series. There are some valid reasons: Big Baby is a starter, Leon shredded his knee, Marbury is buried beneath Rondo's giant shadow, TA has been banished to the witness protection program, and Mikki Moore isn't really that good. But what about Eddie? He's made just 5 of... [More]
