Posterized: Jeff Green Throws Down on Ex-Celtic Al Jefferson

With just over seven minutes left in the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s game against the Utah Jazz, Jeff Green finally showed off the side Celtics fans have all been waiting for – the aggressive, angry, in-your-face Jeff Green from the preseason.

Girlfriend Arrested For Biting Al Jefferson

Al Jefferson is a lot of things: former Celtic, good rebounder, good defender, tall. But I imagine he’s not very tasty. Well, maybe I should tell that to his 38-year-old (yes, 38!) girlfriend Shirley Lewis, who bit the current Jazz forward/center in the back. Lewis, who was listed at 5’7″ and 170 pounds, is charged with […]

Allen Leads Celtics Past Jefferson, Jazz

Just days after trading away Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson, the Celtics got a fresh reminder from Jazz forward/center Al Jefferson that in making a trade, be careful what you wish for. Jefferson scored 28 points and grabbed a season-high 19 points for the new-look Jazz on Monday night, but Ray Allen, who has been […]

Shaq Injured as Jazz Play Out of Tune, Get Blown Out in Boston

If you’re Al Jefferson’s mom…first watch out for Delonte West. (ZING!) Second, you had to be pretty disappointed in your son’s performance Friday night in his return to Boston. You also have to be jealous of Ray Allen’s mom, who watched her baby boy and his Celtics demolish the Jazz, winning 110-86 in a game that really […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 4

Uh-oh, I committed a cardinal sin for any fantasy owner. I missed setting my lineups in one league this week, and as a result, I lost 5-4. Any serious fantasy sports player will tell you that the #1 rule is to never forget to set those lineups. Hey, I’m human baby, I make mistakes. More […]

Celtics Survive in Minnesota, 92-90

How did the Celtics, a team that has dominated all opponents so far this season, barely beat the Minnesota Timberwolves, 92-90, on Wednesday night? Let’s find out. First Quarter: Timberwolves Come Out Hot Wednesday night’s game began with the Celtics and the Timberwolves trading baskets, which led to an early 6-4 lead. Unfortunately, it would not […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 1

Week 1 is in the books. There is no better feeling (in the fantasy realm anyways) than the first week of a fantasy sport. I myself was at a friend’s birthday celebration at a sports bar on Friday night. Instead of paying attention to the festivities around me, I had my eyes glued on one […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 15 (2-2 – 2-8)

Chances are, one owner in every single fantasy basketball league is in a foul mood. He/she may be adjusting their “smack talk” (for you Yahoo! users out there). They may be making angry posts in your league’s message board. They also may be making trade offers with owners who have no idea that Timberwolves stud […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 14 (1-26 – 2-1)

I hope saying the following will not diminish my fantasy status but, is there WNBA fantasy? If there is, I have never heard of or seen it. If it exists, then I wouldn’t play it. I’d rather participate in fantasy NASCAR. Do enough people really have enough in depth knowledge of the WNBA in order […]

Celtics Hold Off Jefferson, Pesky T-Wolves

The Celtics managed to hold off a second-half rally by the Minnesota Timberwolves without the services of Kevin Garnett, who was not even in the building due to the flu. The man they traded (with others) to get KG, Al Jefferson, showed Boston how good he really is and what they’re now missing. While I […]
