Garnett, Pierce Reach Milestones in Celtics’ Win

Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce both made history on Wednesday during the Celtics’ 112-88 home victory over the Toronto Raptors, passing two Hall of Famers on the NBA’s career scoring list. Garnett passed former Laker Jerry West for 15th, while Pierce knocked Charles Barkley out of the top 20. The milestones further solidified the two […]

Shaq to Play with Turkish Team Besiktas Cola Turka?

Many were shocked to see former NBA great Allen Iverson bring his talents to Istanbul, Turkey this fall. Now there are reports that Besiktas Cola Turka, the team that signed Iverson, is also interested in acquiring Boston Celtics’ center Shaquille O’Neal. Shaq is currently in the first year of a two-year, $3 million contract with […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 8

In the past week, nobody has picked up a player in the Sports of Boston Fantasy Basketball League. Either everyone is very satisfied with their team or nobody is paying attention. That kind of crime would be worse than Lamar Odom’s fantasy value (oh, petty cheap shot by me). Injuries Chauncey Billups (PG), Denver Nuggets […]

Fantasy Basketball 2009-10 Draft Preview

The 2009-10 basketball season is just a couple days away and many fantasy leagues will be drafting their teams this weekend. This is why I took it upon myself to comprise a top-10 list for each position, along with likes/dislikes. In addition to the lists, I will give you the secret to finding success when […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Championship Week

One valuable lesson was learned for the Championship Week matchup in the Sports of Boston Friends and Family League. I was facing Shotgun from The BlueWorkhorse for all the marbles in the first annual league championship. Our teams were strong (obviously), but I was rotating three roster spots due to injuries by streaming players through free […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 23 (3-30 – 4-5)

The finals have arrived. In each of my leagues, this week starts the two-week showdown between the two best teams. Two men enter, one man leaves. The months of agony and patience all come down to this one matchup. Just don’t blow it. Oh, and good luck and all that crap. Injury Roundup Allen Iverson […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 19 (3-2 – 3-8)

There are only two weeks remaining in the fantasy regular season. With all the hype surrounding fantasy baseball in recent weeks, it is easy to forget that the fantasy basketball playoffs are quickly approaching. Don’t let baseball draft day preparation distract you from winning a league title in basketball. Otherwise, over 20 weeks of hard work […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 18 (2-23 – 3-1)

There are only three weeks left in the fantasy regular season. If you are mathematically out of the playoffs then please don’t stop trying. I find that when I am in that situation, it is fun to play “spoiler.” If I face a team on the cusp of making it to the playoffs or facing […]

Pistons Hold Off Celtics 105-95

With Allen Iverson in the starting lineup, the Pistons lost eight straight games. Without A.I. for the last two games due to back stiffness, the Pistons have taken down two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference on the road. Friday night, Detroit beat the Magic in Orlando 93-85, and Sunday afternoon, the Pistons […]

Garnett Helps Celtics to Win in Detroit

Instead of destroying yet another opponent, the Pistons gave the Celtics a close game throughout. Close, but not nearly close enough. Would you believe that the Pistons never led in the game? The Celtics survived a rough game from Ray Allen, an ejection of Kendrick Perkins, and relatively little production from the bench to win […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 11 (1-5 – 1-11)

I’ve noticed in both my leagues how there is very little trading. I attribute this to basically everyone being so satisfied with their team that they are willing to put the same roster out there every single day and just fill in the holes with random free agents. I mean, it is suiting me well […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 5 (11-24 – 11-30)

I am in two basketball leagues. I saw a funny occurrence with my stats last week. In the SoB league, I have two more roster spots than in my other league. However, in the league with less room for players, I scored more total points than I did in the SoB league. Maybe I should […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 4 (11-17 – 11-23)

In one of my leagues, I forgot to play one player on Sunday. Thinking it to be no big deal, I checked the box scores at the end of the day and then checked Yahoo!’s Stat Tracker and discovered that if I had played this one man, I would have tied two categories and won […]

Rondo Outplays Iverson in Celtics Win

Initially, Detroit’s trade for Allen Iverson seemed to just set them up for a future spending spree in the 2009 or 2010 offseasons. They probably would make the playoffs with Iverson, but couldn’t expect anything big as they have in the past with Chauncey Billups. The Celtics made a trip to Detroit soon after the […]

Tony Allen Leads Way in Dominant Win over Pistons

Tony Allen has come a long way from his horrific injury during the 2006-07 season. Last year, he was the eighth or ninth man off the bench and played relatively well, but played as if he was favoring his injured knee. Who wouldn’t? He had major knee surgery. Less than two years removed from the […]
