Gortat gets more awesome by the day

Gortat gets more awesome by the day

I've made no secret about it… I want Marcin Gortat on the Celtics.  Don't get me wrong… I'm not pretending that he's going to come here and give us 20 and 10.  He's a good back up that can give us some quality minutes.  But the legend of Marcin Gortat continues to grow.  The latest [...]

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe I'm romanticizing the past a little bit.  But to me, basketball was at its absolute peak in the 80's.  The play was great.  There were so many great players and good teams.  We had classic individual performances (71 points by David Robinson), classic All Star weekend performances (Bird's "who's finishing 2nd three-point contest win, [...]

Blueprint for beating Kobe and the Lakers

Blueprint for beating Kobe and the Lakers

Chuck and I were swilling beers last night and talking hoops and just marveling at Kobe Bryant's 3rd quarter in Game 1 of the Finals.  Simply put, no matter how much we hate that guy, he put on an amazing show.  The Lakers looked unbeatable.  But… they're not. First, the Lakers have a horrible habit [...]

Rondo in China, not on trading block

Rondo in China, not on trading block

Holy crap did this ridiculous Ray Allen/Rajon Rondo trade rumor have legs.  I mean… we threw it up there as a "ha ha… you asked for rumors and this dumb one surfaced" type of thing.  But it just kept making the rounds.  People pulled quotes that appeared next to neanderthal cave paintings to use as [...]

Et tu, Larry?

Et tu, Larry?

You know, I'm having a hard enough time coping with Kobe Bryant's seemingly eventual championship (and the onslaught of Laker trolls that will hit this site)… the last thing I needed was to hear Larry Bird's current favorite player is a Laker. Johnson: Larry Bird told me that Kobe Bryant is his favorite player. How [...]

Who Has The Better Anti-Kobe T-Shirt?

or I thought ours (just $16.99 at the Red's Army store) was pretty cool until I saw this T-shirt worn by a Nuggets fan. Any chance Magic fans will get this creative?

Nike’s gonna need new puppets

Nike’s gonna need new puppets

A funny thing happened on the way to Kobe vs. LeBron in the finals. The Orlando Magic figured out how to play good basketball.  Actually, they figured it out during the Celtics series when they stopped just bombing from 3 and got aggressive.  Now, Orlando is one win away from eliminating the Cavs, and giving [...]
