Missing Larry, and what he represents, 20 years later

Missing Larry, and what he represents, 20 years later

This still bums me out. I’m so happy Larry Bird doesn’t play today.  Somehow, some way, people would over-analyze him, overreact to him, and over-emphasize things that aren’t important about him. The back injury that ultimately shortened his career?  He hurt it putting up a retaining wall at his Indiana home… when he easily could [...]

Antoine Walker wants to be a coach someday

Antoine Walker wants to be a coach someday

Boston has an irrational fixation with Antoine Walker.  Yes, he had a few nice seasons with the Celtics, but he was also a wild chucker who twice shot under 40% for entire seasons in his prime.  He also shot once 25.6% from 3 in his early years as a Celtic.   He then became a [...]
