First All-Star ballots are in…

First results from the fan voting component of the All-Star game are in, and two Celtics made the list — Jeff Green and Rajon Rondo (you know, the guy who…uh…hasn’t played a game in 11 months).

George Karl refers to the Knicks situation as “hell”

As KWAPT pointed out in yesterday’s Dump, the Knicks are a mess. They’ve lost 9 straight and, at 3-13, occupy the basement of the Eastern conference.

Could the Nets trade Paul Pierce?

Via Ken Berger of CBS Sports Sports – Top 10 Candidates to be Traded: 10. Paul Pierce, Nets: Here’s the wild card of the group.

Jason Kidd’s spilled drink: Brilliant, or BS?

Kobe’s extension: Selfish money grab or a just reward?

Director’s cut of KG’s new commercial

Here’s the director’s cut of KG’s new ad for ‘Beats by Dre’ wireless headphones.

They are reportedly filming a new version [...]

How bad are the Nets? Pierce is taking shots at Kidd

The bickering and finger pointing was bound to happen. Following Brooklyn’s 5th straight loss, Paul Pierce directed some criticism at the team’s coaching staff: Jason Kidd, who watched his 3-10 squad crumble in the third quarter (again) and fall for the eighth time in nine games, sent a message by benching his entire starting lineup [...]
