Well THAT was horrible to watch

Well THAT was horrible to watch

The line for the eye wash begins to the left.  You'll need it to wash the crappiest game you'll watch all year off your retinas.  That, folks, was about 48 minutes of pure crap.  The good news is, the Celtics came out on top of this pile of dung 86-76… making them the only winners [...]

Doc: Paul Talked More Trash Than Rondo

Doc: Paul Talked More Trash Than Rondo

Doc Rivers on WEEI: Did he cross the line with Chris Paul? No, that wasn’t confidence. I don’t know what that was. Chris did an interesting thing. I think he thought that he got under Rondo’s skin during the game so he tried to continue it during the game. It was a learning less for [...]
