Your Morning Dump…Where the season’s on the brink, but these Celtics are just beginning

Was Kevin Love hanging out in Boston before the playoffs started?

We’ve been through this before… Last summer, the Kevin Love sightings were pouring in as people realized the soon-to-be-traded forward was taking in the sights of what might have been his new home city.  He seemed to enjoy himself here.

Delusional JR Smith thinks Bradley’s being treated like Kobe

Delusional JR Smith thinks Bradley’s being treated like Kobe

JR Smith is a dumb basketball player. Let’s just put that down here for the record. When he’s going good, he can score like crazy. When he’s “on,” he can beat you all by himself. But he’s not bright. He does dumb things on and off the court. And every once in a while, he says [...]
