Nate Robinson: The Diminutive Dandy

“Stay engaged. At some point you’re going to win a game for us. I can’t tell you when. I can’t tell you when you’re going to play. I can’t tell you if you’re going to play, on what night at least, but at some point you’re going to win a game for us.” – Doc […]

Rondo’s Stellar Play May Force Cavs to Pick Their Poison in Game 5

Celtic’s point guard Rajon Rondo recorded 29 points, 18 rebounds, and 13 assists in the Game 4 victory over Cleveland on Sunday, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is the second-best player in this series behind LeBron James. However, it was King James who took a backseat on Sunday, something he hasn’t […]

Kevin Durant: The One That Got Away?

It’s hard to say what’s most impressive about Kevin Durant. Is it his graceful fadeaway, the one that has opposing fans shaking their heads as soon as it leaves those comically gigantic hands? Is it his insistent leaner, in which he throws his rail-thin frame against an opponent, holds onto the ball until the last […]

Which Is Better? Playoff Edition: NBA vs NHL

With the Bruins dropping the puck on their run to the Stanley Cup Finals on Thursday night, and the Celtics ready to tip off against the Heat on their journey to grab title No. 18, I thought now would be a most appropriate time to partake in one of my favorite and most cliché sports […]

Celtics Remaining Schedule: Scuffling for Seeds to End the NBA Season

With just over two weeks left in the season, teams are engaging in their last minute pushes to improve their position. Except for the Celtics, that is, who were embarrassingly slaughtered from start to finish by the Spurs on Sunday. When an opponent can look like the UConn women against you, that’s never a good […]

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. […]

Celtics Squeak by Lakers in Rematch

So there I was, sitting on my friend’s couch watching the Boston Celtics take on the Los Angeles Lakers Thursday night when Rajon Rondo is called for a technical foul for taunting the other team. My friend goes “Wow, wouldn’t that be terrible if they lost by one point?” Well yeah it would be, and […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 1-29-10

After six straight weeks atop the SoB NBA Power Rankings, the Lakers have finally been dethroned by the Cavaliers. But, the defending champions didn’t fall far. They sit at the No. 2 spot just ahead of the Hawks. The streaking Nuggets, who are 9-1 in their last ten games, shot up four places from No. […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 1-16-10

Three of the top four teams in this week’s SoB NBA Power Rankings are from the Eastern Conference, but the defending champion LA Lakers remain at No. 1 for the third consecutive poll. The Celtics slipped to No. 3 after being leap-frogged by the Cleveland Cavaliers, who sit in the second place spot just one […]

Let’s Talk Some Trash

Talk is cheap. Everyone knows that. As American citizens, we are guaranteed the right to say whatever the heck we want. (See: the First Amendment to the Constitution.) In the realm of professional sports, however, talk can be very, very expensive. (See: Doc Rivers’ $25,000 fine for criticizing referees and being ejected from Monday’s loss […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 4

Uh-oh, I committed a cardinal sin for any fantasy owner. I missed setting my lineups in one league this week, and as a result, I lost 5-4. Any serious fantasy sports player will tell you that the #1 rule is to never forget to set those lineups. Hey, I’m human baby, I make mistakes. More […]

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. […]

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 […]

Who Are Your Most Hated Sports Figures?

With the announcement this week that the third incarnation of Brett “Farv-ruh” is upon us, I found myself re-evaluating my feelings on the sports figures I loathe most. I quickly found that Minnesota’s No. 4 has vaulted to No. 1 on my list. I mean, come on Brett…go away already! I’ve never seen anyone who has reached […]

Roethlisberger Accused of Sexual Assault

Multiple news sources report that Andrea McNulty, an employee of Harrah’s Casino, filed a lawsuit last week in Nevada accusing Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of sexually assaulting her in July 2008. Roethlisberger is not under criminal investigation, and it is not yet clear if Ms. McNulty filed a criminal complaint. Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett […]
