Ten Things I Hate About “The Decision” Pt. 1

WARNING: The following article may be suspected of baseless and fatalistic Internet whining, or of peanut gallery shots taken out of frustration.  It is guilty of neither.  I promise to offer at least as much substance as there is complaining within.  If unsatisfied by this list, you may exchange this story for a full refund […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 19

Every Monday, I will report on the events of the past week of fantasy basketball. I will go over each position and what particular player that week stood out from all the rest. As always, I will start off with this week’s notable injuries to report on. Injuries Tony Parker (PG), San Antonio Spurs Parker […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 2-27-10

The All-Star break is officially over and the push for the NBA Playoffs has begun. This week’s SoB NBA Power Rankings feature the same ten teams as our 2/12 rankings, but things have shaken up a little bit. The top four teams (LA, Cleveland, Orlando, Denver) remain the same. The LA Lakers reclaimed the No. […]

Hawks Clinch Regular-Season Sweep over Struggling Celtics

It was an awfully tall task for the Boston Celtics — three games in four nights, and the second two coming on the road against the Magic and Hawks. To make matters worse, the C’s suffered a heartbreaking last-second loss to the Magic before coming into Friday night’s showdown with Hawks (a tough 100-91 loss). […]

Celtics Turn Game Over to Hawks…Again

Why can’t the Celtics just beat the Hawks??? The Boston Celtics (26-10) have 10 losses on the entire season and three of them are to the Hawks (24-13). Boston lost again to Atlanta 102-96 Monday night, just three nights after losing to the same team on the road 83-95.   In a game that was in Boston’s hands throughout much […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 11

Every Monday, I will report on the events of the past week of fantasy basketball. I will go over each position and what particular player that week stood out from all the rest.

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 5

Man, I had some bad matchups in some of my leagues last week. They were almost as bad as Tiger Woods’ driving…BA-ZING!!!! No, seriously though, they weren’t too bad, I just needed an excuse to make a Tiger woods joke. I hope you enjoyed it. Hey, he wasn’t injured, therefore it is OK to make […]

Hawks Finally Get Revenge on Celtics

Before Friday night, the Boston Celtics defeated the Atlanta Hawks in the team’s past seven meetings in the regular season. This time the Hawks prevailed and gave the Celtics their second loss of the season in a 97-86 victory. This Hawks team keeps getting better each and every year as they brought their record to 7-2 […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 20 (3-9 – 3-15)

A Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you out there! Entering the final week of the fantasy regular season, I hope you were bitten by the luck of the Irish and are in position for the playoffs. To those who have already locked up a playoff spot, I hope you see the pot of […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 13 (1-19 – 1-25)

In my other league, I have been free-falling in a very fast way. Just over a month ago, I was sitting in first place without a care in the world. Now I sit in 11th place and at this point I think I may just have to give up hope of making the playoffs. I […]

Celtics Win 16th Game in a Row

In a game reminiscent of last year’s playoff series with the Atlanta Hawks, it went down to the final seconds for the winner to be decided. The Celtics pulled it out with a clutch turn-in hook-shot from Kevin Garnett and two free throws from Ray Allen to seal the 88-85 win.

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 3 (11-10 – 11-16)

Just a quick blurb on my boy Dwight Howard. He only scored 4 points on Sunday. The ironic thing is that all of his points came off of free throws. He is averaging 21.3 points per game this season and missed all of his field goal attempts against the Bobcats. I just hope this isn’t […]

Pierce Hits Clutch Shot to Beat Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks rolled into Boston with a 6-0 record, and appeared well on their way to 7-0 after Marvin Williams hit a go-ahead three-pointer with less than 10 seconds remaining. Stacked with three stars capable of going for a game-winner, the Celtics chose Paul Pierce, who has been on fire of late. Pierce proceded […]

Celtics Finish off Hawks, Set for Round 2

The Hawks scored the first basket of the game, but it seemed like that would just about be the only time they lead the entire way. The Celtics dominated the Hawks today by winning 99-65, giving them the series win and the chance to play Lebron James and the Cavs in round two. The Hawks […]
