Other coaches helping Doc figure out his lineups

Other coaches helping Doc figure out his lineups

Doc Rivers is dealing with the same things every coach deals with every season:  injuries, players who meet expectations, players to exceed them, and players who fall short.  The difference between Doc and many other coaches is the sheer volume of what he’s dealing with. There’s no need to rehash everything, but Doc’s been forced [...]

The Curious Case of Brandon Bass

The Curious Case of Brandon Bass

Hesitant. Lazy. Useless. Unintelligent. Moronic. These make up a small sample of the plethora of adjectives I’ve used in describing Brandon Bass’ play this season. Hey, it falls within the job requirements of being founder, chairman and most vocal supporter of the Brandon Bass Hate Club. You can now add “eating crow” to those responsibilities. [...]

Sullinger returns to the practice court

Sullinger returns to the practice court

That’s Jared Sullinger back on the practice court today (video courtesy WEEI’s Ben Rohrbach) shooting free throws.  It’s a great sign to see him back out there in practice gear doing anything after back surgery. Of course, Sully’s nowhere close to returning, but I’m sure it’s nice to just be out there with a basketball [...]

Randolph’s emergence may help, not hurt, Chris Wilcox

Randolph’s emergence may help, not hurt, Chris Wilcox

With just a handful of games left, there’s a hyper-focus on who might get minutes when the playoffs begin.  Last night, Doc went with the big lineup he promised when he made Jeff Green a starter:  Avery Bradley, Paul Pierce, Green, Brandon Bass, and Kevin Garnett.  That moved Chris Wilcox to the bench, and created [...]

Video bomb: Lee, Green and Bradley have fun with KG

Video bomb: Lee, Green and Bradley have fun with KG

Gotta love the video bomb (except when it involves the Heat). Question – what is KG saying? “Y-G” … does that mean young guys, young guns or young gangstas? Or “Wise g’s” … which would be a reference to wise guys. I (the poster boy for the white, suburban soccer dad’s club) think it’s “Y-G” and [...]

Garnett’s injury first flared in a loss in New Orleans on March 20 but he played through discomfort in Dallas on March 22. He said Saturday he [...]

Bradley’s defensive philosophy: don’t be afraid to be embarrassed

Bradley’s defensive philosophy: don’t be afraid to be embarrassed

Avery Bradley. “Zero Tolerance“ Avery Bradley’s defensive prowess is well-known throughout the NBA.  He often sets up shop inside opposing guards’ heads and throws them so far off their game, that the ripple effect can swing games in Boston’s favor. He also gets burned from time to time.  That’s going to happen in the NBA.  But when [...]
