Danny Ainge 4th in Executive of the Year voting

Danny Ainge 4th in Executive of the Year voting

Golden State’s Bob Myers, architect of the league’s best team, has won the Executive of the Year award. He probably should get it just for not listening to the masses last summer who said “OF COURSE YOU TRADE KLAY THOMPSON FOR KEVIN LOVE!!!” Who knows how that would have worked out, but they clearly did [...]

Celtics questions going into the offseason

Celtics questions going into the offseason

What a year. Big time trades, crazy games, a fan-base unsure whether to hope for losses or wins, this Celtics team was extremely interesting. A year after winning 25 games the Celtics gave every fan hope for the future, and got to measure themselves against the best, which is more than anyone can ask for. [...]

Kevin Love’s shoulder injury is pretty bad

Source: Kevin Love’s labrum tore away from the bone, and will need 4-6 weeks, minimum, to heal. If it doesn’t, surgery a possibility. — Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) April 28, 2015 To be clear, source adds: There’s virtually zero chance Love plays again this postseason, even if Cavs make the Finals. — Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) April [...]

Was Kevin Love hanging out in Boston before the playoffs started?

Was Kevin Love hanging out in Boston before the playoffs started?

We’ve been through this before… Last summer, the Kevin Love sightings were pouring in as people realized the soon-to-be-traded forward was taking in the sights of what might have been his new home city.  He seemed to enjoy himself here.

Woj: There are no max contract offers out there for Rondo

Woj: There are no max contract offers out there for Rondo

With the way Rajon Rondo is unraveling in Dallas, it’s obvious his days in Dallas are numbered. Adrian Wojnarowski sheds some light on the drama: Around Rondo, the energy is toxic. The Rockets’ and Mavericks’ interests intersect everywhere, including with the trade pursuit for Rondo in December. Rondo’s agent never wanted Rondo in Houston, partly [...]

Blazers player thinks LaMarcus Aldridge is a 50/50 shot to leave

I’ll just get this out of the way right now… I love LaMarcus Aldridge. When looking ahead to this summer and free agency, one of my hopes was that somehow, some way, Aldridge would get frustrated enough with being on a good but not great team that he’d go searching for a new situation. Well… [...]
