Your Morning Dump… A sign-and-trade for Courtney Lee will be tricky

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline.

Ray Allen was the reason the Celtics won a championship in 2008. It all started in 2007, when Danny Ainge got the Seattle Sonics to take Wally Szczerbiak, Delonte West, and their #1 pick (Jeff Green, the fifth pick, which was a horribly low pick for the second worst team in the league) to Seattle [...]

Ray Allen is taking his talents to Miami

Ray Allen is taking his talents to Miami

Heat owner Micky Arison broke the news several minutes ago. For anyone hoping Arison is drunk tweeting, Yahoo! Sports Marc Spears has also confirmed the news.

Your Morning Dump… Where we’re all still waiting for Ray

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.
