COLUMBIA, Md. — If I told you that only four players have registered at least ten triple doubles in the playoffs, that probably wouldn’t surprise you.

Stronger case for Sixth Man of the Year: Terry or Green?

Kevin Garnett cannot fathom how Kevin Durant worked out with LeBron James during NBA offseason

When Kevin Garnett loses in the NBA postseason, I imagine he locks himself in a 4 x 12 room, transforms into something resembling the Incredible Hulk, except harrier, howls at the moon continuously, and drinks nothing but V8 juice all summer just so he can feel as much pain as possible.Given how much he loathes his opponents (remember, he deleted Ray Allen’s phone number this summer...

Recap: Celtics leave defense in Boston for season opener

I know it’s October, but I expected so much more from the Celtics. After all the talk about the Heat and Ray Allen, I expected the defensive intensity to be there. It wasn’t. And the Heat rolled 120-107. LeBron James had 26 points in 29 minutes. If he doesn’t sit out most of the 4th quarter with leg cramps, Miami wins this game by 25. Ray Allen played to his ceiling (19 points...

The Rodney Dangerfield of the NBA

Cold shoulder?

Oh, to bleed Celtic green

With Opening Day just a few hours away, I decided to post an introspective look into my being a Celtics fan in another country. Hope it satiates the hunger for a bit while waiting for the 2012-2013 season.  There is something special about being a Celtics fan. Maybe it’s the rich history, or the championship banners, the legendary Celtic pride, Ubuntu or all of them. I really...

Hometown predictions are silly

If you've been reading this blog for any amount of time you probably already know that I don't give a damn about what "experts" like the alleged one's at ESPN think. It's not that I think that they are "haters" (most played out word that needs to be retired), it's just that their opinion doesn't matter. You know whose predictions matters...
