C’s lose another tough one to their L.A. rivals

C’s lose another tough one to their L.A. rivals

Just got back from the big Red’sArmy party which was fantastic-despite watching the C’s fall to the Lakers 97-94 at Staples Center today. The Celtics were ice-cold and just could not get things going in the 1st quarter. Things starting looking better towards the end of the 1st half though, and behind a couple of [...]

Bynum on the Celtics: “We don’t like them boys”

Bynum on the Celtics:  “We don’t like them boys”

Andrew Bynum had strong words when talking about the Lakers' upcoming game with the Celtics on Sunday: "We're going at they head. We're going at the Celtics' rack. Yo, we going at the Celtics' rack. At they head." Bynum's been known to play pretty dirty, most notably/recently, his clobbering of the Mavericks JJ Barea during last [...]

Kobe’s new mask: Batman, Lone Ranger or Zorro?

Kobe’s new mask: Batman, Lone Ranger or Zorro?

(Photo courtesy Yahoo) At 33 years old and winner of 5 championships, I figured Kobe Bryant was past the attention seeking phase of his career. But his mask choice for last night's game proves otherwise.  Ball Don't Lie poked some fun at Bryant and threw out comparisons to Batman, Zorro and the Lone Ranger. I prefer the [...]

Pierce, Rondo, fined $20k each

Via USA Today, Pierce and Rondo skipped league mandated charity appearances.  And they, as well as Kobe Bryant, paid for it.

Rondo for Pau Gasol rumors just won’t die

Rondo for Pau Gasol rumors just won’t die

The NY Post’s Peter Vecsey is the latest to stir the pot: If the Lakers indeed are interested in signing Rasheed Wallace — a logical step-down from flirting with Gilbert Arenas—it lends credence to the Rajon Rondo/Jermaine O’Neal-Pau Gasol swap I keep hearing. Lord knows they’re desperate for a point guard and Rondo is exceedingly [...]

Lakers a steaming pool of nepotism and nincompoops

Lakers a steaming pool of nepotism and nincompoops

CBS Sports Ken Berger with some harsh words for Lakers ownership: The Lakers' front office is an uncommunicative, rudderless fiasco, and the unrest and paranoia that have been festering for years threaten to derail the team's plans to ride Bryant to his sixth NBA title while they still can. And much of it can be [...]

Is Pau Gasol having an emotional breakdown?

Is Pau Gasol having an emotional breakdown?

Via the LA Times: In a game that featured plenty of Kobe Bryant (36 points), plenty of Andrew Bynum (17 points and 14 rebounds) and an improving bench (34 points), Pau Gasol scored 10 points on four-of-13 shooting. Though it appears pointing out a descrepancy involves splitting hairs, Bryant believes reports linking Gasol in a [...]

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline.

Recap: Celts loss the cherry on a crap sundae of a game

Recap: Celts loss the cherry on a crap sundae of a game

The quality of basketball wasn't quite at the level of 2008 or 2010 (or my kids youth league), but the drama was vintage Celtics vs Lakers. In the end, the Lakers were a smidge less awful than the Celtics. The result – an 88-87 LA victory in overtime. In a game officiated to their benefit [...]
