The Pierce/Garnett trade is a gift that keeps on giving

The Pierce/Garnett trade is a gift that keeps on giving

It’s so hard to keep track of all the moving parts in Danny Ainge’s rebuilding plan. There are so many picks with so many protections from so many teams. Players have come and gone.

Your Morning Dump… Where the safe bet is for Danny Ainge to wait until the offseason

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Larry Bird is Clint Eastwood: The awesome “f’ing rookie” trash talk story

Larry Bird is Clint Eastwood: The awesome “f’ing rookie” trash talk story

Every time I hear a new Larry Bird trash talking story, I get excited. I’ve always known he was a big trash talker. When I was a kid, I remember seeing NBA players being asked about this and I remember them always saying Bird was tops. Over the years, there was a slow trickle of [...]

Bird to ‘Nique: “You can’t guard me, Homes”

Bird to ‘Nique: “You can’t guard me, Homes”

I missed this fantastic trash talking tale about Larry Legend in Sunday’s Herald. According to Dominique Wilkins: “One of the first times I ever played against him, I went out for the opening tip and I went to shake his hand.

Bespectacled Paul Pierce pokes some fun at Russ Westbrook

Paul Pierce took a few friendly jabs at Russell Westbrook this weekend, mocking his “we executed” interview from Friday night. John touched on Westbrook’s little tantrum in the Saturday Dump. FWIW, I don’t think the glasses are part of the bit. Pierce has worn those babies before. (h/t CBS Sports) [...]

Jeff Green puts Victor Oladipo on a poster

            Looks like Jeff Green is feeling right at home with the Memphis Grizzlies. Green scored 21 points off the bench in Memphis’ win over the Magic last night, including this nasty flush on Victor Oladipo. Oladipo tried to draw a charge, but instead ended up on the receiving end [...]
