Report: Derrick Rose likely out until March

The Chicago Tribune buries this nugget in a story about the Bulls financial decisions this summer: Management will say its financial decisions are cloaked in basketball reasons.

Kevin Love opt-out coincides with end of Danny Ainge’s Phase II plan

Kevin Love opt-out coincides with end of Danny Ainge’s Phase II plan

Phase II of the new Big 3 era has yet to officially begin, but I’m already fascinated by potential roster moves at the end of the 2014-15 NBA season. Should the Celtics need a new big man to replace KG, Bass and Paul Pierce, look no further than Kevin Love: Timberwolves all-star forward Kevin Love [...]

Jermaine O’Neal forgets the internet exists, recycles ridiculous excuses

Jermaine O’Neal forgets the internet exists, recycles ridiculous excuses

Jermaine O’Neal is still trying to play basketball.  And despite what we saw in Boston over the past couple of years, he swears he can still be productive. Ok.  Fine.  I’m not going to get on any player who still wants to play the game for a living.  It’s a beautiful game… the locker room [...]

Hubris makes this Team USA unlikeable

Hubris makes this Team USA unlikeable

This may ruffle a few feathers, many will call me un-American or some other crazy name, but I have grown to dislike this years version of Team USA. Why you ask? Hubris. Hubris is defined as an overbearing pride or presumption; arrogance. Let’s be honest, that pretty much defines 80% of this Team USA roster. [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the Mavs got OJ Mayo for peanuts

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.  The third overall pick in the 2008 draft broke the news on his Twitter account, saying, “I will be signing with dallas! #Mavsnation.” Not long after, Mavs [...]

Heading into Vegas, a pair of jokers mar a wild offseason

Heading into Vegas, a pair of jokers mar a wild offseason

The second week of summer basketball has begun.  We’ve seen NBA veterans trying to stick around.  We’ve seen rookies trying to prove their worth.  We’ve seen an NBA offseason that is, officially, less than a week old but has still given us a mountain of stories. It’s been an amazing off-season.  But as we head [...]

Report: Ray Allen can opt-out after one year

Report: Ray Allen can opt-out after one year

This juicy tidbit comes to us from the Miami Herald: Heat fans should appreciate Ray Allen next season, because there’s no assurance he will be here beyond that. Two sources with direct knowledge tell us that Allen’s two-year deal with the Heat includes a $3.2 million player option for 2013-14. So if Allen wants to become a free agent again next July, [...]

Enemy Chatter: Friction with Rondo didn’t factor into Ray’s decision

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.  Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Miami. Was friction with Rondo a factor? I haven’t spoken with him at all. I know when i came down here I texted Paul and Kevin… we shared a similar philosophy. [...]
