The 2012-13 NBA season gets set to kick off tonight as the Boston Celtics face the defending champion Miami Heat and the Dallas Mavericks take on the new look Los Angeles Lakers. While I hope desperately the emotional ceremony bestowing LeBron James with his first championship ring distracts the Heat just enough to open the […]
Does LeBron James have Gmail? Maybe, maybe not…but here’s what it would look like, according to the folks at Grantland:
Doron Lamb: 20 years old, 6’5″; 199 lbs School: Kentucky Position: Shooting Guard Background: Doron Lamb is one of the rare players who actually played for more than one season under John Calipari at Kentucky.

With the news that Brandon Bass will opt out of the remainder of his contract, the Boston Celtics now face the question of whether or not to sign him and for how much. In order to figure out if the Celtics should re-sign the 27 year old power forward, let’s take a look back at Bass’s […]
Moe Harkless: 19 years old; 6’8″; 208 lbs School: St John’s Position: Small Forward Background: Moe Harkless burst onto the scene in 2011 when he was named Big East Rookie of the Year.

Nothing sums up the differences between the Heat and the Celtics than this video posted on CSNNE.com. This Miami Heat team has always been about flash and arrogance, as opposed to being able to get your hands dirty when you needed to in order to win the big game. The latter is exactly what the […]
In the waning minutes of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Celtics were down 20 points on their home court. The Big 3 and Rajon Rondo found themselves sitting on the bench watching the reserves play mop-up duty. Many of the fans at the TD Garden, with the game so clearly out of […]
Let’s not overreact. Let’s not do what The Sports Hub’s Felger and Mazz did today. Let’s not pretend what happened in Game 2 was something more than it really was. Paul Pierce recorded 36 points and and grabbed 14 rebounds in Game 2 against the Hawks. Is 36 points impressive? Sure. Is 14 rebounds impressive? […]
On March 15th, Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtics came ever so close to finally moving on from the Big 3. In the final hours of this season’s trade deadline, the Celtics had a trade in place to send the aging, injured Ray Allen to the Memphis Grizzlies for O.J. Mayo and a draft pick. […]

1) Chicago Bulls (23-6) – The Bulls are rolling over teams right now. That, combined with a semi-rough week out of OKC, puts Bulls are back on top. Seriously, four straight blowout wins on the road. Impressive. 2) Oklahoma City Thunder (21-6) – OKC suffered two losses this week which pushes them down into the […]
I know its Super Bowl week, but how ’bout a little NBA Power Rankings to hold you over?
This week’s theme: Separation. Things are really starting to sort themselves out, and the top teams in each conference are playing fantastic basketball right now. Not to mention that after two weeks on top, the Chicago Bulls have been knocked off their #1 spot.
