Brandon Bass visits China

Brandon Bass visits China

On Tuesday, the NBA tweeted that Celtics foward Brandon Bass was visiting China this week. I got in touch with some of the fine folks over at Hoop China for the details.

Hubris makes this Team USA unlikeable

Hubris makes this Team USA unlikeable

This may ruffle a few feathers, many will call me un-American or some other crazy name, but I have grown to dislike this years version of Team USA. Why you ask? Hubris.

It’s been an amazing off-season.  But as we head [...]

Philly gives Spencer Hawes $13 million to continue being Spencer Hawes

Philly gives Spencer Hawes $13 million to continue being Spencer Hawes

One of my lasting memories of the Boston Celtics – Philadelphia 76′ers series was thinking “How can we keep Spencer Hawes in this game.”  He was terrible in that series, and Doug Collins’ insistence on using him was part of the reason why the Celtics won. But Philly was undeterred by Hawes playing terribly in [...]

Doc to Austin: “you’re not going to get a single basket” against Celtics

Doc Rivers is a competitive guy.  So it stands to reason that his son is as well.  And that’s leading to some fun trash talking around the dinner table for Dad and his son. “One Sunday morning I was sitting at breakfast thinking about all of it and I said, ‘This is going to be [...]
