There’s no way Brad Stevens wants the Pacers job, right?

There’s no way Brad Stevens wants the Pacers job, right?

If you haven’t heard, the Pacers have fired not resigned head coach Frank Vogel. After avoiding the issue for days, Larry Bird finally gave the word today during a press conference.

The time Larry Bird hustled Shank out of $160

We’ve all heard about the time Larry Bird injured his hand throwing a punch during a bar fight back in 1985. Dan Shaughnessy expounds on that story with a tale involving himself and Larry Legend shortly after that incident: SHAUGHNESSY: He had his hand taped like a fist, like a boxing glove almost, and he was [...]

DJ to Bird: The back door play

DJ to Bird: The back door play

When I think about Dennis Johnson, tough defense and clutch play come to mind. Pinpoint passing does not. But man could he thread the needle on those back door passes to Larry Bird. Beautiful. [...]

Better performance with head trauma – Bird or Lebron?

Better performance with head trauma – Bird or Lebron?

A side story to the Warriors 103-82 victory in Cleveland last night is the flop fall LeBron James took into the photographers’ row that resulted in a couple of nasty cuts on his head. This incident reminded me of a famous moment in Celtics history – the decisive Game 5 of the 1991 series vs [...]
