Jermaine O’Neal’s buzzer-beater goaltend costs Suns a game

Jermaine O’Neal’s buzzer-beater goaltend costs Suns a game

The Rockets beat the Suns 101-98 last night on a James Harden three-pointer at the buzzer. The shot was bouncing off the rim when Suns center Jermaine O’Neal slid his hand through the cylinder and knocked it away.

Ainge calls LeBron’s complaints about officiating “embarrassing”

You expect bloggers, fans and sports radio hosts to react to LeBron James’ whining about officiating. But an NBA general manager? Yesterday on WEEI, Danny Ainge joined the fray: “I think the referees got the calls right. I don’t think it was a hard foul,” Ainge said of the mixups involving James and Heinrich, as [...]

Saving the NBA and D-League by eliminating One and Done rule

Lets all be honest here, its a fairly safe bet that most of us reading today have never watched a single NBA D-League game, nor do most NBA fans really care about the D-League.  Can you name more than three teams without the assistance of Wikipedia?

Paul Pierce dismisses talk that Kobe was victim of dirty play

During practice today, Paul Pierce was asked for his take on the Kobe Bryant/Dahntay Jones saga: (courtesy WEEI’s Mike Petraglia) I think it got blown out of proportion.

Deandre Jordan destroys Brandon Knight

If you were in bed before 11pm last night, you may have missed the dunk of the year-or at least one of the top 3. I don’t usually post things on other teams, but this is worth a look.
