The NBA settled a dispute centered around Jeff Green's medical condition by awarding the Boston Celtics a second-round pick in 2013 from the Thunder. Green was traded in 2011 in the deal that landed Kendrick Perkins in Oklahoma City and Nate Robinson plus the Thunder's first-round pick in Thursday's draft in Boston. Green missed the 2011-12 season only after he failed a physical with the Celtics, an examination that uncovered an aortic aneurysm and required surgery. Green had been offered a one-year, $9 million deal with Boston for the 2011-12 season. He is an unrestricted free agent.

Apparently, there had been some behind-the-scenes complaining by Danny Ainge that led to this. I’m not sure about the particulars, but you get the gist of it in that tweet. The Celtics...
Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden is sitting in a weird place right now. The bearded one was nothing short of remarkable during the regular season all-the-way-through the Western Conference finals.
Then in the NBA finals he crapped out.

Rajon Rondo led the Celtics on a deep playoff run in 2012, only to fall to the eventual champion Miami Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Still, the point guard played to his All-Star potential throughout the post-season and was a major reason the C's were able to make it as far as they did. With Rondo signed through 2015, the Celtics have a distinct advantage over...
Ray Allen’s free agency could mark the end of an era in Boston. When Ray joined the Celtics, it marked the first time since Dee Brown pumped up his Reeboks that Boston was excited about a Celtic’s players shoes. During his time with the C’s Ray dazzled fans with his amazing shooting skills and incredible Air Jordans. Celtics green when mixed with classic Jordan silhouettes was...
Andy FlintRussell Westbrook, the point guard of the Oklahoma City Thunder, is widely regarded as one of today’s most dynamic players. When the man is on, there’s no stopping him. The young sensation from Long Beach can maneuver through defenders and finger roll the ball into the basket with the kind of grace and athleticism that Allen Iverson used to possess. Unfortunately...
Rumors had been swirling around that the Oklahoma City Thunder may have been interested in Jeff Van Gundy and Phil Jackson to be their next coach if they’re unable to re-sign Scott Brooks to an extension. Thunder GM Sam Presti shot down the rumors, calling them “rubbish.”
He tells the Oklahoman:
“To me, it’s rubbish,’ said Presti, the Thunder’s general manager,...
WALTHAM, Mass. -- Mickael Pietrus watched LeBron James and the Miami Heat cruise to victory in five games over the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals, but the free agent swingman never stopped to wonder, "What if?" What if the ball had bounced Boston's way just a couple more times, and Pietrus and the Celtics had outlasted the Heat in seven games in the Eastern...

The general consensus around the NBA is that Ray Allen will sign with Miami. "Barring a change, he'll join the Heat," said a league source.about 9 hours ago via webReplyRetweetFavorite@AlexKennedyNBAAlex KennedyGood thing teams aren’t officially allowed to speak to free agents until July 1, huh?
Sam Presti expressed his desire to bring back Scott Brooks.
I guess it’s time for the Cleveland Cavalier fan to emerge. Personally I had to give the Cleveland fan inside me some time to recover. I actually started my recovery 3 minutes into the 3rd quarter. When I realized that the Oklahoma City Thunder were intent on putting Kendrick Perkins on the floor, just so they could watch him get his shot get his shot blocked. And when Mike Miller...
Beam Me Up Scotty: Earlier today we discussed how the OKC Thunder could possibly handle James Harden’s contract extension.
One thing that that can be assured is that Thunder GM Sam Presti is hell-bent on getting a new deal done with HC Scott Brooks.

2012 NBA Finals Recap
Look, I was just happy once the 2012 NBA Finals finally started. It was one thing for every national sportswriter, blogger, Governor, and late-night TV host to offer their fly-on-the-wall predictions. And it was entirely another for every Hollywood Celebrity, family member, and professional colleague to throw down their own gauntlet. But once my 85 year old...
