Former Celtic Paul Pierce Signs With…the Wizards?

If Celtics fans weren’t used to seeing Paul Pierce in a Nets jersey last season, this year isn’t going to get any easier. In the latest domino to fall since LeBron James decided to return to his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers, the former Celtic Pierce has decided to join the Washington Wizards, according to an ESPN report. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 22

Just one week remains in the season, but plenty is left to decide. The top seed in the East is still a tossup. The last spots in each conference are still alive. Middle seeding could still get jumbled up. There may be favorites to win, but a lot of teams will make a strong bid […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 21

With just two weeks in the season, the playoff picture is starting to come into focus. Nine spots, including four divisions, are locked up. Home-court advantage in the East is a dead heat. The #8 spots are also very close. In fact, teams 7-9 in the West are all tied at 44-31. In fact, other […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 20

Just a few weeks, 10 or so games, remain in the season. San Antonio continues to put themselves in a great position, but nothing is for certain with the Thunder close behind and so much of the standings still up for grabs. Some teams are settling in for ping pong balls, but plenty others have […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 19

The NBA season is nearing its end, and the playoff picture is starting to come into focus. Teams are starting to be mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, while Miami and Indiana have have punched their tickets. Many teams are still pretty close together, with minimal space between them. With so much left on the line […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 18

The NBA season is reaching its climax, yet only two teams have clinched spots. For that matter, no teams have been mathematically eliminated, at least for the moment. The West is as strong as it’s been in recent memory, including three teams not in the brackets that would be if they were suddenly transplanted to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 17

With just about 20 games left, teams are still having a difficult time separating themselves from the rest of the pack. While the conference heavyweights are known, the vast majority of both conference brackets could still be thrown this way and that without a moment’s notice. With so much to play for, let’s look at […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 16

Now that the All-Star break is over, the final stretch of the season has begun. The East’s top eight have a fairly good lead over the rest, while Memphis is still knocking on the door out West. Seeding is still a jumble in the middle of both conference brackets as well. A lot will be […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 15

The All-Star game is just days away, yet it’s rather difficult for any team to find a niche, especially in the middle of the conferences. Indiana and OKC are even fighting with each other over home-court advantage. Teams are still pushing each other this way and that with every passing day. It’s a tough time […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 14

The All-star break is only a week away, and other than the top teams, the contenders are stepping all over each other in an effort to get a better seed and home-court advantage. The standings are clogged up, too, so there’s lots of wiggle room. Much is still to be decided, so let’s look at […]

David Ortiz Deserves Contract Extension From Red Sox

Big Papi wants a little more of Boston before his career is over. Last week David Ortiz said it may be “time to move on” to spur talks about a contract extension with the Boston Red Sox.  Some reporters thought this move by Papi was outrageous. I think it is a pretty shrewd business move […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 13

The season is now more than half over, and many teams remain bunched up. The bottom of the Western bracket is also up for grabs again, making the bracket even more interesting. And the bottom of the East is still wide open thanks to the general lackluster performance of its teams. It’s an exciting time […]

State of the Celtics: Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce Return; Chris Johnson Earns Second Deal

The Boston Celtics have lost three straight contests after the win against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night. Overall, the Celtics went 1-4 over the past nine days and it does not look like they will be in the playoff picture anytime soon. The 15-32 record has them tied for last in the Atlantic Division […]

Video: Celtics Honor Pierce, Garnett in Return to Boston

“Anything is possiblllllllllleeeeee!!!!!” These, of course, are the immortal words of Kevin Garnett after the former Celtic won his first NBA championship in his first season in Boston. At the time, Garnett was referring to, well, I don’t know what. Coming from a man who has talked about tortillas and microwaves as a metaphor for […]
