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 [...]

Pierce on likelihood of chicks in the NBA: “No.”

Pierce on likelihood of chicks in the NBA: “No.”

Thanks to Mavs owner Mark Cuban’s silly comments about drafting Brittney Griner, NBA executives, coaches and players are now being asked whether a woman could play in the NBA. Here’s what Paul Pierce had to say: “I think it will be a little difficult, just because of the physicality of the sport,” said Pierce, who [...]

Jermaine O’Neal’s buzzer-beater goaltend costs Suns a game

Jermaine O’Neal’s buzzer-beater goaltend costs Suns a game

The Rockets beat the Suns 101-98 last night on a James Harden three-pointer at the buzzer. The shot was bouncing off the rim when Suns center Jermaine O’Neal slid his hand through the cylinder and knocked it away. Not the smartest play in the world, but at least JO was working hard under the boards. [...]

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. [...]

Funny outtakes from AT&T’s Legends commercial

Funny outtakes from AT&T’s Legends commercial

Here are some more laughs from Larry Bird, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson while shooting their new AT&T ad campaign, “It’s not complicated.” In this clip, Russell mocks both Magic and Larry as they fumble through lines. Bird also plays duck-duck-goose. Kinda. If you haven’t seen them, John posted a couple of the [...]

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 [...]

Your Morning Dump..Where The C’s Are Impressed By Shav’s Toughness

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. Since Jared Sullinger went down for the season with a back injury, the C’s have struggled to find another “blue collar” guy. Wilcox simply has not had [...]

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 [...]
