Something’s Gotta Give

Chuck's been hammering Doc for playing Paul and Ray too much… and rigthly so.  Today, I guess it's my turn. I'll say right up front that Gabe Pruitt and Bill Walker didn't exactly light it up last night.  I can't remember how many times a ball hit one of those guys in the hands and... [More]

Any Guesses?

The Celtic starters for tonight remain a mystery that Rivers apparently is unwilling to share. Asked who would open at point guard and power forward, the coach replied by text message, “We will have our coin toss later.” Even though Stephon Marbury's has a few more practices under his belt, I'm guessing Doc starts Eddie...
