Comments From the Other Side - Cavs 1/29

Not a lot of Cavs fans were chatting last night during the game.   It's definitely not as much fun to gather these comments when we lose, especially when we lose the way we did last night.   This comment about Paul Pierce was my favorite:  "I use to hate him for spitting at LeBum in his rookie year but damn he did the right thing lol.."   Still a lot of bitterness...

Is Brandon Bass' Play the Most Pleasant Surprise for the Celtics This Season?

Paul Pierce was too old and too fragile two weeks ago. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge even floated the possibility of trading the 14-year veteran.

It's a surprising development for a soon...

Comments From the Other Side - Cavs 1/31

We almost had another big lead lost loss, but thankfully the Celtics pulled it out this time. The Cavs fans aren't a very chatty bunch compared to others and I think criticize their own players as much as they do the other team but they definitely don't like the Celtics. They are even willing to derail their tanking to beat them.  I'd love to have Varejao. though, he...

Taking Stock: Celtics - Cavaliers

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Avery Bradley:  His D wasn't nearly what it was in the last Orlando game, and the 5 turnovers (a couple of them were really bad) were a problem.  And if E'Twaun Moore is going to play like he did last night, Avery... defense and...
