Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 2

I hate basketball streamers. They are worse than people who stream pitchers in a baseball league. In one of my other leagues, there is a guy who has been streaming for four or more seasons, and it has resulted in four straight finals appearances and a championship. I personally don’t advocate streaming, I think a […]

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 […]

Magic Beat Cavs, Advance to NBA Finals

Often seen as the East’s third best team, the Magic took down the cagey Celtics and the mighty Cavaliers to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1995, completing the odyssey Saturday night with a 103-90 win over the Cavs in Game 6. LeBron James went 8-20 from the field, finishing with […]

Celtics Give up Game 6 to Orlando

Game 6 was a terrible game, as both teams played poorly the whole way through. There were dumb fouls, turnovers, and missed shots all over the place. This hardly looked like two of the three best teams in the Eastern Conference fighting to play in the next round. However, Orlando came out the victorious, beating Boston 83-75 […]

Dwight Howard Calls Out Stan Van Gundy

Uh oh…trouble in paradise. It looks like Dwight Howard agrees with me here, and rightfully so I say. The play calling for the Orlando Magic in Game 5 was atrocious. You’ve got a foul-prone Perkins (not to say he hasn’t defended Howard well) and a Celtics team that can’t shoot the ball into the ocean […]

Celtics Squeak Out Game 5 Win

In a game largely controlled by the Orlando Magic, the Celtics came through when it counted, and delivered a 92-88 win. Ray Allen drilled a three-pointer with 1:20 left in the fourth quarter to give the Celtics their first lead since the opening minutes. Big Baby finished strong, playing 42 minutes and pouring in 22 […]

Big Baby Hits Buzzer Beater in Game 4 Win

The Celtics were in control of Game 4 for much of the second half, but Orlando would not go away. With just a few seconds left in the game, the Magic found themselves up by one point. However, the ball found its way to Glen “Big Baby” Davis, not the one who would normally take […]

Magic Blow By Celtics for Game 3 Win

Usually, with their backs against the wall, the Celtics can battle back to take a game or series. After a 117-96 loss to the Magic in Game 3, the Celtics are down 2-1 in the series and face an uphill battle if they want to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. Can they continue their […]

Eddie House and the Celtics Tie Up Series 1-1

If someone told me that Paul Pierce only played 16 minutes and only scored three points in a critical Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals I would have panicked immediately. The sad part about this statement is that most of it is true and Pierce was that ineffective due to foul trouble early in […]

Celtics Comeback isn’t Enough; Orlando Takes 1-0 Lead

Boston found themselves down by as much as 22 points early in the minutes of the third quarter, but made a valiant effort to get back into this very tough Game One match-up against the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Thanks to great play by Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and yes, Brian Scalabrine, […]

Celtics Run Out of Magic Against Orlando

The Celtics lost grip of the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference Wednesday night as the Orlando Magic held on late to beat the C’s, 84-82. The Celtics were down by as much as 16 points, but made a late-game comeback that eventually fell short when Paul Pierce (26 points) missed a shot in […]

Celtics Make Comeback, but Still Fall Short to Magic

The Celtics, playing without Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo (sprained ankle), were down by as much as 22 points against the Magic, but got the game within three points late in the fourth quarter thanks to a tremendous effort from Ray Allen. However, after a missed three-point attempt to tie the game, a bad call […]

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 Top Magic in East Showdown

The Celtics entered Thursday night’s game in Orlando barely sporting the East’s best record over the Cavs and Magic. A win against the Magic on the road on the second night of a back-to-back couldn’t be expected, especially considering Orlando hadn’t played since last Saturday. Throw in the fact that Stan Van Gundy’s squad had […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 9 (12-22 – 12-28)

The holidays and the fantasy football championships had me very distracted last week and as a result, my basketball leagues suffered. I lost one league 8-1 as a result of leaving players on the bench all week. This is one of the most common and classic sins of a fantasy sports player. Like many before […]
