Like in 2007-08, Championship Celtics can be Built Around Rondo

Michael Felger said on Felger and Mazz Tuesday that “teams can not be built around a point guard. It does not work” I disagree: with the proper players around Rajon Rondo, he can lead a team and win championships. He might not average 20 points per game, but he can absolutely be the foundation of something […]

Is Zdeno Chara Overrated ?

Has the Novelty Worn Off for NBA All-Star Saturday?

Bruins Take One Point in Shootout Loss to Sabres

The Bruins dropped one in the shootout, 2-1 in Buffalo on Friday night. It was not exactly the nasty game that people were expecting, but it was a great game between two teams that dont like each other. There wasn’t much action in the early on until Buffalo put one on the board in the […]
