Joakim Noah whines about Kevin Garnett, again

After the game last night Joakim Noah (son of French professional tennis player Yannick Noah) was asked about playing defense against Kevin Garnett. Here's what Noah had to say: (I was) just playing defense. Just playing sound defense, just contesting his shots. He's a helluva competitor. He's always on some bulls---. Always on some bulls---. Just trying to throw elbows...

Kevin Durant: "Believe it or not, I wanted to play for the Toronto Raptors"

posted by Romy AquinoDon't get mad Raps fans.  Kevin Durant was on the Dan Patrick Show today and a little Toronto Raptors shoutout came up in the interview.  Apparently, when asked what team he wanted to play for growing up, it was the Toronto Raptors.  Why?  Mostly because of Vince Carter and because he liked those jerseys.  Yep, those old school purples with the red dinosaur...

Bulls: Taj Boozer, a great Power Forward

A superstar power forward will play an average of forty minutes per game during the regular season, forty-four minutes a game during the playoffs, and forty-eight minutes under coach Thibs.   Forty-eight minutes is exactly what Carlos Boozer and Taj Gibson give the Bulls every night.  In no world is Carlos Boozer a superstar.  His jumper seems to miss in big games and big spots...

Joakim Noah Talks Up Kevin Garnett’s ‘Cheap Shots’ After Beating Celtics

On Friday night, after the Bulls beat the Celtics 100-99 in overtime, Joakim Noah said he didn’t want to talk too much, and especially not about Kevin Garnett, with whom Noah tangled again on Friday night and about whom Noah has had some pointed words in the past. So on Friday, Noah did not go as far as to say that Garnett was a dirty player, as he has alleged before. Instead,...

Raptors Will Need To Find Fix at the NBA Trade Deadline

Friday Night Fantasy Basketball Recap!

By: John Fortney – Staff Writer The Return of Mr. Anderson! The Toronto Raptors are slowly becoming a fantasy basketball plethora.

Underrated Stat of the Night - Bulls 1/18

The Celtics have lost. This one really sucked. We had a lead with a few seconds left in both the fourth and in OT, yet we couldn't catch a break. Rondo played amazing: putting in 30 points, 2 rebounds, and 7 assists. Unfortunately, he fouled out mid-way through overtime. This one stings and I just want to move on, but I won't. Tonight's underrated stat of the night...

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are back to playing mediocre basketball

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Pierce? He was a different story. You want someone to wear the goat horns in this one? He’s your guy. He was horrible all night from the floor (5-for-17), he was victimized like a callow rookie on arguably the...
