Bradley probably won’t play, Ray probably will

Bradley probably won’t play, Ray probably will

I probably could have written this post before the last game, but here goes: Bradley traveled with the team, but appeared dejected at this morning's shootaround, and he did not participate. He wouldn't commit to playing in a Game 7 or a potential next series. "I don't think I'll be able to play tonight," Bradley [...]

Avery Bradley out tonight as BOTH shoulders now an issue

Avery Bradley out tonight as BOTH shoulders now an issue

This is just great.  Somehow Bradley's right shoulder has become an issue as well.  The left shoulder is so bad that it practically pops in and out in a strong breeze.

Paul Pierce doesn’t know what a slump is, even with his knee at 20%

You don't score more than 25,000 points in the NBA if you get sensitive about a couple of missed shots.  So it's no real shock (but still awesome to hear) Paul Pierce say this when he was asked about getting out of a slump: I don't never think I'm in a slump. I really don't [...]

Doc burns Shaq on “Inside the NBA”

After the Spurs finished off sweeping the Clippers last night, Inside the NBA played this very special ball-busting message from Doc Rivers to Shaquille O'Neal "Also tell Shaq, please, for me, if he had gotten into the type of shape that he was against Barkley, we might have won it last year."

Bradley sits out shoot-around

Avery Bradley left Game 4 with the Celtics up 16 in the third.  Over the next nine minutes, the Sixers scored 25 points.   That's an over-simplfication of Bradley's effect on the team.  But it's pretty obvious that Avery Bradley has become a critical part of not only the Celtics defense, but the Celtics offense.  [...]
