Top 10: NBA Nicknames

With LeBron (King James) and Kyrie (Uncle Drew) pushing Steph and Klay (The Splash Bros) to a game 7 last night, I wanted to get into some of my favorite NBA nicknames of all-time. This list isn’t necessarily a list compiled of the greatest players, but rather ones who’s nicknames fit them like a glove. […]

Will The Celtics Land Durant?

One of the biggest question marks for the NBA off-season is where is superstar Kevin Durant going?

Date with Destiny: Celtics Set to Face Lebron, Cavs in Return to Playoffs

Some Celtics fans were probably hoping for the team to lose its last two games and avoid the Cleveland Cavaliers and their league best record 34-9 over the last three months in Round One.

Celtics’ Comeback Bid Falls Short in Double OT Loss at Washington

The Celtics completed a home-and-home matchup last night against the Wizards in a double-overtime thriller that unfortunately resulted in a Boston loss. Splitting the series with a 14-6 Washington team is certainly nothing to be ashamed of, but it was still painful to watch this team lose to the Wizards in perhaps the most exciting game so far this […]

Rondo Passes Pierce for Fourth on Celtics’ All-Time Assists List
