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 [...]

In an effort to bring clarity and reason to this debate, John and I have decided to lay out a case for each side.  Here are my 5 reasons why the Celtics should make the deal*: 1.

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 [...]

Enemy Chatter: KG was repeatedly allowed to miss shots

Enemy Chatter: KG was repeatedly allowed to miss shots

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here’s a dose of ‘enemy chatter’ from Los Angeles. The Lakers survived because the Celtics couldn’t take advantage of another weak offensive output. Ray Allen hit some shots early, and one big three late, but [...]

Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “I was wide open,” Allen said of that last regulation play. “Paul, as he started dribbling off, both of those guys stayed with him. Paul said he [...]

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 [...]
