Report: Warriors Reach Buyout With Troy Murphy

At the trade deadline, the Celtics traded Semih Erden and Luke Harangody to the Cavs for just a second round pick, and traded Marquis Daniels to the Kings for cash. This gave the team three open roster spots, allowing GM Danny Ainge to sign any veteran free agent bought out by Tuesday’s deadline. The Golden […]

Celtics Power Past Warriors Out West

The Celtics had lost six games in a row in Oakland. They were injured quite badly. And at times, it looked like the streak would become seven. But not to be deterred, the Celtics exploded in the second half to defeat the Golden State Warriors 115-93. Delonte West and Semih Erden returned, but Kendrick Perkins […]

Last year, the Nets threatened to break the NBA’s 82-game season-worst 9-73 (.110) record of the 1972-1973 Philadelphia 76ers, and this year, the Clippers are on pace for 7-75.

The NBA season is underway, and the weekly installments of hypothetical playoff scenarios have returned for your viewing pleasure.

Celtics Should Trade Allen for Warriors’ Ellis

Let me begin by stating that the possibility of the Celtics trading Ray Allen to the Warriors is remote as it is a rumor, and 99% of the time, rumors are either not true or never amount to anything. With that said, there have been rumors circulating over the past week that the Boston Celtics […]

Ray Allen Trade Rumors: to the Warriors for Monta Ellis?

In what will become a common headline as we move toward the Feb. 13 NBA Trade Deadline, Celtics guard Ray Allen is rumored to be moving to the Golden State Warriors for Monta Ellis and Vladimir Radmanovic.

Celtics Fall in Back-to-Back Games

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 0

It might seem a little soon to start this column after the second day of games, but there’s already been some interesting developments. Besides, this is the only way the Timberwolves and Thunder will make it in, so I’ll humor them. The Wizards were the first team to reach 100 points in a game, and the […]

Mikki Moore Signs with Warriors

After signing with the Celtics halfway through last season, Mikki Moore has found a new home: sunny Oakland, California.
