Pierce takes break from Sheed talks to shoot craps

One man's encounter with Pierce… via Ball Don't Lie So I'm heading back to my room and I see Paul Pierce playing craps.

Hudson happy Ainge doesn’t hold grudges

We would have known more about Lester Hudson earlier this week… that is… if he had shown up for a schedule workout with the Celtics.  But he canceled that, probably because he thought there was no way in hell that he would slip all the way down to the #58.  But on draft night, Hudson [...]

Josh Smith on the block?

The Atlanta Hawks are a young, athletic, exciting team.  But they don't seem to be on a championship path.  So now they're apparently starting to think of pieces they can trade… in an effort to bring in some more stable players that might be able to help them move forward.  One of those players:  Josh [...]

Tony Battie is better than Ray Allen

Tony Battie is better than Ray Allen

I actually love lists like this. It's from the Wages of Wins Journal… and it's a ranking of EVERY Celtic since 1977… according to wins produced with the Celtics (via CelticsBlog).  Wins produced (explained here) is clearly not the be-all end-all statistic on which to rank players.  It can produce some weird results.  But it [...]
