The Atlantic, Week 6: Rondo, Lin and the Nets’ Trainers

We’re nearly halfway through the season in ‘The Atlantic’, Sports of Boston’s weekly ‘trending up’ and ‘trending down’ of the news from the NBA’s Atlantic division. Can Rajon Rondo‘s hot play get the Celtics offense back on track? Do the 76ers have one of the worst starting backcourts in the NBA? What does Brook Lopez‘s return […]

Carmelo’s ‘Hero Syndrome’ Slows Knicks in Game 1, Torches C’s in Game 2

Can I get a mulligan? Seriously. My Wednesday night was a roller-coaster, I left work and immediately found out my first piece was being published here at SoB. On Facebook and Twitter, reaction was overwhelmingly positive. I felt like the Internet gave me one big congratulatory handshake and pat on the back. Then Melo happened. Suddenly, I felt like Joey […]

Boston-New York Rivalry Hits The Hardwood: Celtics-Knicks Series Preview

It’s not Jets versus Patriots and it’s definitely not Yankees versus Red Sox, but when the Knicks (42-40) take on the Celtics (56-26) in the first round of the 2011 NBA Playoffs, it’s going to be yet another chapter in the war between Boston and New York. Two of the greatest sports cities in the […]

“The Big 4″ Sit as Celtics Close Out Season With Win Against Knicks

It was supposed to be a preview of arguably the most intriguing first round matchup of the playoffs, but with the “Big 4,” Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups all watching from the bench it was more of a glorified pickup game. The Celtics bench got to play as the starters for the second straight night. […]

Have The Knicks Caught Up With The Celtics?

Carmelo Anthony played his first game with the New York Knicks Wednesday night, scoring 27 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in a win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Although this win was against a 22-35 team, it started the Knicks second half of the season on the right foot. New York made this trade with intentions […]

Melo-Drama Over: Carmelo, Billups Traded To Knicks

Beasts of the East Defeat Best of the West in NBA All-Star Game

The Eastern Conference All-Stars defeated the Western Conference All-Stars 141-139 in front of the largest crowd to ever watch a basketball game. A record 108,713 NBA fans descended upon Cowboys Stadium to watch the best athletes in the world (the U.S. Basketball team – plus Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, and Pau Gasol) put on a […]

Pierce Surprises, Wins 3-Point Shootout

OK, don’t get me wrong when I say that I never expected Celtics’ forward Paul Pierce to win the 3-point shootout Saturday night. Honestly I didn’t expect him to make it out of the first round, but Pierce overcame the odds and came out with the trophy. Pierce is the first Celtics player to win since […]

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 Roundup: Week 3

I’ve been slightly disappointed with my teams over the past two weeks because I am just barely squeaking out 5-4 wins. I’d like to be winning by 6-3 or more, but in the end, winning is winning. After all, when playoff time rolls around, a 5-4 win is just as good as a 9-0 win. […]

Nuggets End Celtics Win Streak

It turns out the Nuggets got a pretty good deal when they traded Allen Iverson for Chauncey Billups. Denver is now 4-1 with their new point guard after he finished with 18 points and seven assists in a 94-85 win over the Celtics. Ray Allen led the Celtics with 26 points in the loss that […]

Celtics One Step Ahead of Pistons

On Monday, the Pistons traded Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess, and Cheikh Samb to the Nuggets for star guard Allen Iverson. At first look, it appears the Pistons have pushed in all their chips and mortgaged thier immediate future for success this season. But, beneath the surface, it appears GM Joe Dumars has outsmarted us all…that […]
