What in the hell just happened? The NBA trade deadline has come and gone, and it seems like half of the league’s point guards have suddenly changed teams.

It looks like the Celtics are going to stand pat with the roster they have as the NBA season cruises towards the playoffs.

Amidst rumors at last season’s trade deadline, the Celtics were also on an epic west coast road trip, but they had just won two games in a row. Many viewed the Celtics strong play after last season’s All-Star break as an emphatic statement that Paul Pierce and crew wanted to keep the band together for […]
It’s been a strange NBA season to say the least. We had the lockout to start the season and that produced this ridiculous condensed schedule.

My Momma always told me “Brian, If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Celtics GM Danny Ainge could have used my Momma. After a 97-87 Game 5 loss to the Miami Heat ended the Celtics season, it became all too clear that the gambles Ainge took at the trade deadline left him with nothing but […]

The Cavaliers strengthened their chances of winning an NBA Title by acquiring Wizards power forward Antawn Jamison in a three-team deal.

UPDATE (7:45 p.m. Wednesday): Eddie House went to Celtics practice on Wednesday, despite the fact there’s “strong possibility I’ll be traded tomorrow to New York.” He figured he’d practice in case the trade for Nate Robinson did not happen. “With that being said I have a bond with these guys and I’ll always have a […]
