Start The Rumor Mill

Thanks to Scott at BostonSportz for this tidbit from the Chad Ford ESPN chat: Chad Ford: (12:09 PM ET ) We keep hearing all morning that the Celtics were talking to the Kings about a deal for Nocioni. The Kings can move him again as long as they don't package him with other players on... [More]

Should We Be Concerned About This?

I've already linked to the Herald piece about Danny's attempt at making a deal… but I glossed over this quote from Paul Pierce: “I think it would help us.

Calm Before The Storm?

The Globe reports they have heard nothing from their sources about 24 hours ahead of the trade deadline.  It would jive with what Danny has said about no trades in the offing…but I'll believe it when 3 pm comes and goes tomorrow. And Tony Allen underwent his thumb surgery. As frustrating as this season has... [More]
