I’m emotional about the game. That’s one of my best features – being emotional, playing out there with passion. Sometimes it’s not always good passion.... [More]

Collision Course

So here we are. A combined 37 and 4. We all expected that the Celtics  and the Lakers would meet up again in the Finals.  But we didn't expect both teams to announce it so early by matching their best starts ever.  (I know I didn't) Back in the 60's, the Celtics and Lakers began... [More]

I Don’t Want To Remember Kevin This Way

I'm begging someone to please make it stop. I loved Kevin McHale.  He was awesome.  I mimicked his post moves in high school.  But as an executive………. ugh. Now comes word that the Timberwolves are about to fire Randy Wittman… and make Kevin takeover as head coach.  And I just can't take it anymore.  I... [More]

The Talking Is Still An Issue

It might be because teams are sick of hearing about how their asses are getting kicked while said ass-kicking is in progress.  It might also be the refs sick of hearing how every call they make is wrong.  All I know is all the talking the Celtics are doing on the court is about to... [More]

Why Boo Oden?

It was one of the most peculiar things I've seen in a while at the Garden.  I was sitting in the section directly behind the basket near the Blazers' bench.  So when they were introduced… Greg Oden was right there.

Because Big Baby Cares

Glen Davis is one goofy bastard. Guys like him help keep a team loose. But after watching his emotional outburst last night, you also have to say – he takes this game seriously. I'm not going to get on his case for letting some tears flow after KG ripped apart the entire second unit for... [More]

Not Ready for Primetime

The standings told us Portland was the second best team in the West, which made us believe this was going to be a game tonight. That was not the case….not at all. The Celtics overwhelmed the young Blazers tonight. The defense was suffocating. Portland shot 42%. They had 36 points at the half, 51 after... [More]
