Al Horford was just kidding about Pierce (but probably not)

Here’s how I think things went down a couple of days ago after Al Horford told the story about Paul Pierce owing him $10 grand. Horford (in the morning):  Hey funny story:  Paul Pierce bet me a couple of years ago that we wouldn’t win a game.  We won 3… so we essentially bet on [...]

That was our “competition” in the Atlantic

If the Raptors are going to carry themselves this season like they're a playoff contender, they're gonna have to come stronger than they did tonight.  They were soft on D (The C's scored 33 first quarter points, 101 for the game, and shot 50%) and they were sloppy on offense (21 turnovers/19 assists).  That ain't [...]

“I’d run through a brick wall if [Doc] wants me to”

Peter May has a feature piece on KG up on Yahoo! today.  The whole thing focuses on KG's recovery and the challenges he faces because of it.  It's a good piece… but this quote about him and Doc is really striking. “Every time I step on the court, every time I pick up a basketball, [...]
