Dwyane Wade’s dirty play rolls on, unchecked

Dwyane Wade’s dirty play rolls on, unchecked

Dwyane Wade has been a damn good player for nine years in the NBA.  He’s got a Finals MVP… he’s been a scoring champ… an All Star almost every year… it’s a very impressive resume.  And up until a few years ago, I kind of liked him.  He played hard, he made fun commercials… he [...]

Should the Celtics make a play for DeMarcus Cousins?

Should the Celtics make a play for DeMarcus Cousins?

The Kings recently suspended the talented, but troubled DeMarcus Cousins for unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team.  Cousins says he wants to remain in Sactown, but does the team still want him? The Celtics could sure use a 22-year-old, 6-11 forward who averages 16 ppg and 9.6 rpg. In a column that’s all [...]

Mannix wants Bradley/Green for Pau Gasol deal

Mannix wants Bradley/Green for Pau Gasol deal

Here’s part of my afternoon Twitter exchange with Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix. I’m intrigued by this deal. Pau Gasol would be a huge help to Kevin Garnett, the Celtics jump shot centric offense and (lack of ) rebounding. I’d hate to give up a decade of Avery Bradley for 3 years of Gasol. And a [...]

Video: Blake Griffin is still good at dunking

I’m not sure if you’re paying attention, but the Clippers are the second best team in the NBA right now, thanks to their 10th win in a row.

Amir Johnson lost his goddamn mind last night

Amir Johnson lost his goddamn mind last night

The Raptors are, unsurprisingly, pretty terrible.  They have the second-worst record in the league and not a whole lot of hope for the future unless they try to rebuild (again) and try to see if they can get anything worthwhile for Andrea Bargnani.
