Hawks looking to move Teague, should Boston be interested?

Hawks looking to move Teague, should Boston be interested?

Hawks had been soliciting offers for Teague or Dennis Schroder, per rival execs. Though recently they have focused more on Teague. — Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixYS) January 27, 2016 Milwaukee, Utah and the Knicks are some of the teams reportedly interested in the Hawks point guard. There’s no reference to Boston (yet), but I’m wondering if [...]

The Celtics broke Brett Brown last night

The Celtics broke Brett Brown last night

That face when you realized you’re not only the coach of the 76’ers, but you willingly chose to re-up your deal and continue dealing with this mess. We all watched the Celtics dismantle Philly last night… which was a welcome relief from the past couple of Sixers too-close-for-comfort experiences. But unlike some of his players [...]

Miami is knocking, but Ray Allen isn’t answering

Miami is knocking, but Ray Allen isn’t answering

For those wondering about the status of Ray Allen: According to several sources, the Heat has not only had a standing offer to Allen to return to the team ever since the 2014 offseason, but it made additional overtures as recently as this summer. Allen, however, has never bit. This shouldn’t be all that surprising, [...]

Watch Rondo smartly tell Boogie Cousins to guard no one

Watch Rondo smartly tell Boogie Cousins to guard no one

It’s moments like these that make you realize why teams would want Rajon Rondo. The enigmatic point guard is having a bit of a renaissance this year with the Sacramento Kings, and he showed his value again on Thursday night during the closing seconds of Kings-Hawks. With the Hawks trailing 3 points and inbounding the [...]

Ryan Anderson’s face fouled KG’s hand last night

Ryan Anderson’s face fouled KG’s hand last night

When you’re Kevin Garnett, you get the benefit of the doubt. Like last night, when he clearly didn’t need to put his arm up to avoid Ryan Anderson, but did anyway, smacking him in the face in the process, and somehow drawing a foul on Anderson in the process. Or like right now, as some [...]

Let’s continue to enjoy the Warriors manhandling of Cleveland

Let’s continue to enjoy the Warriors manhandling of Cleveland

At 28-11, the Cavaliers remain the top dog in the Eastern Conference. But after last night’s ass-whooping at the hands of the defending champs, people are starting to wonder if they’re in the same class as the Warriors. Here’s a couple of Vines and Tweets that sum up last night’s game: LeBron’s face after Steph [...]

Rondo vindicated in alleged kicking incident

Rondo vindicated in alleged kicking incident

Yesterday I (and a lot of people on the Internet) skewered Rajon Rondo for allegedly taking a swipe at Deron Williams during his game winning shot Tuesday night in the Mavs/Kings game. Turns out, what we thought happened wasn’t reality: The NBA has decided that there will be no punishment for Sacramento Kings point guard [...]

Did Rondo try to kick D-Will on his game winner?

Did Rondo try to kick D-Will on his game winner?

The Mavericks beat the Kings last night thanks to Deron Williams’ (yes, he’s still alive) buzzer beating triple in 2OT. Rajon Rondo didn’t play (back spasms, aka fear of getting booed) but may have tried to play some defense on the final play. Tim Cato of Mavs Moneyball: I’m not sure whether to call this [...]

Squashing the Cousins rumors (again)

Squashing the Cousins rumors (again)

As we noted yesterday, the NBA rumor season is officially upon us. They came out of the box strong with a Celtics-involved Boogie Cousins rumor. Today, those rumors are being categorically squashed We suggest holding off on DeMarcus Cousins to Boston rumors until the teams have at least, you know, one conversation about it… None [...]

Rondo’s in a heap of trouble for (alleged) gay slur
