Your Morning Dump… Where let’s pretend we care about All Star lineups!

Your Morning Dump… Where let’s pretend we care about All Star lineups!

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The all-star starters for the East, chosen by the fans, will be Miami’s Dwyane Wade and Toronto’s Kyle Lowry in the backcourt; with Cleveland’s LeBron James, [...]

4 Up, 4 Down: The Toronto Raptors

4 Up, 4 Down: The Toronto Raptors

The Celtics had a lot of opportunities to win last night’s game, but in the end, they were outclassed by an soon-to-be All Star (and soon-to-be max contract player, probably) in DeMar DeRozan. There shouldn’t be any shame in losing to the second seed in the conference, but, of course, there was a lot of [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Crowder just keeps getting better

Your Morning Dump… Where Crowder just keeps getting better

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. I’m usually first in line to scoff at Draymond Green comparisons. Green’s combination skills is incredibly rare. Not every undersized forward can just be him. But [...]

Recap: DeMar DeRozan sends Celtics to another frustrating loss

Recap: DeMar DeRozan sends Celtics to another frustrating loss

The Toronto Raptors are hosting this year’s All Star Game in a few weeks, but probably-soon-to-be-All Star DeMar DeRozan got a jump on the festivities, leading Toronto to a 6 point win over the Celtics thanks to a 34 point, 6 assist performance. The Celtics and Raptors traded a bunch of early baskets before the [...]

Should we be concerned about Marcus Smart’s shooting?

Should we be concerned about Marcus Smart’s shooting?

After missing 18 games with a knee injury, most of us are just happy to see Marcus Smart back on the court. But his shooting has been awful: So, when do we start talking about how Smart is shooting 34 percent overall and a disastrous 21 percent from deep? Smart is a multi-positional terror on [...]

The Boston Celtics are worth $2.1 billion dollars

The Boston Celtics are worth $2.1 billion dollars

Back in 2002, Worcester native Wyc Grousbeck, his father, and a group of investors formed Boston Basketball Partners, LLC. They got $360 million together and purchased the Boston Celtics. The resulting 14 years have been fruitful for Boston. They’ve won a title, made a few runs at another, and they’re currently in a rebuild that’s [...]

Ryan Anderson’s face fouled KG’s hand last night

Ryan Anderson’s face fouled KG’s hand last night

When you’re Kevin Garnett, you get the benefit of the doubt. Like last night, when he clearly didn’t need to put his arm up to avoid Ryan Anderson, but did anyway, smacking him in the face in the process, and somehow drawing a foul on Anderson in the process. Or like right now, as some [...]

Let’s continue to enjoy the Warriors manhandling of Cleveland

Let’s continue to enjoy the Warriors manhandling of Cleveland

At 28-11, the Cavaliers remain the top dog in the Eastern Conference. But after last night’s ass-whooping at the hands of the defending champs, people are starting to wonder if they’re in the same class as the Warriors. Here’s a couple of Vines and Tweets that sum up last night’s game: LeBron’s face after Steph [...]

4 Up, 4 Down: The Dallas Mavericks

4 Up, 4 Down: The Dallas Mavericks

There was a lot to love and a lot to hate in last night’s tough OT loss to Dallas. The Celtics scored a lot, but gave up a lot of points… they came back from a huge hole, but they got into that hole in the first place. And then, of course, there was a [...]
