Hungry dogs defending their last scrap of food

Hungry dogs defending their last scrap of food

It's become very clear that the Celtics simply don't have enough left to win a championship (although I will still find some way to explain how they could if they win game 7).  They are too hurt… too run down… too reliant on guys who should be getting 15-20 minutes per game, rather than 35-40.  [...]

Is Dwight Really Dominant?

Is Dwight Really Dominant?

SevenSecondsOrMess does a great job breaking down video.  Today, it's Dwight Howard and his offensive game under the microscope.  Once again, TV analysts seem to accept some misconceptions about Dwight Howard being a dominant player.  Even last night, in a monster game, he didn't score very often on an offensive move.  He dominated the boards.  [...]

“We are going to win this series”

“We are going to win this series”

Getty Images Dwight Howard kissed and made up with SVG yesterday… and then came out with a guarantee "We can't give up hope," Howard said Wednesday. "We're in this series to win it. We are going to win this series." I get why athletes say these things.  And Orlando winning twice wouldn't be the most [...]

Stumped

This blog isn’t writing itself, so I’m just going to start typing. Three hours of interrupted sleep will do that to a man. Watching your son get circumcised doesn’t help much either. I’ll just empty my head. The left side of my brain: Nothing comes easy for this Celtics team and I don’t expect that [...]

The Implosion Is Nearly Complete

The Implosion Is Nearly Complete

  I've said from the beginning of this season… check that… since the beginning of LAST season that the Magic are not built for the playoffs.  I think the world is starting to see why I say that.  Horrible shot selection when it matters most.  Lack of heart.  Suspect coaching moves. And it's that last [...]

Thank You Stephon Marbury

Thank You Stephon Marbury
