The Lakers Are Setting Up For Failure

The Lakers are trying to figure out how to beat the Boston Celtics.  It's the only thing on their minds.  'How can we beat the Celtics'… 'how can we avoid being embarrassed again?'… And their answer is: defense. "The thought process is that you want to win a championship. In order to beat a Boston,... [More]

Thanksgiving Turkeys

That, my dear friends, is what is known as a Turbaconducken.  It is, of course, a turkey, stuffed with a duck, that was stuffed with a chicken… and the whole thing is wrapped in bacon.  Today, someone will eat that.  Tomorrow, that person's heart will explode.  (via frumpzilla) So in the spirit of the holidays,...

Perk Has Me Confused

Kendrick Perkins talked with the Globe's Julian Benbow about his league leading 8 technical fouls. I read the article and I'm not really sure what the hell he's talking about.

How The C’s End A Quarter

How The C’s End A Quarter

It's a simple play, but it's a nice little breakdown of one of the Celtics final-second plays. CelticsBlog found this interesting note about Glen Davis' newly found jumper.  The team has encouraged him to start using it.  I like it.  A guy his size should be a threat to pull up from 10-12 feet.  But...

A Little Perspective

Don't have much time this morning, but I would like to share a little perspective with everyone.

In a recent conversation with a blogger for... [More]

One executive said of Garnett, "He's nothing but an instigator." With several teams complaining about Garnett's antics in recent weeks,... [More]

Damn Right Donnie’s In Trouble With Celtics Fans

I'm going to admit something here:  I'm just like Vince Carter.  I'm also religiously checking my statistics (zing!) So when I saw that a bunch of New Kids On The Block fans started hitting the site, I knew it was because I announced Donnie Wahlberg is dead to me.  A couple of clicks (and 1... [More]
