Breaking news: The Celtics are shockingly looking for big men to fill the two roster spots they have! (Yes, I'm having fun with those who thought the Celtics made a mistake by not trading for a big yesterday as if the league abounds with them.) Steve Bulpett has reported a shortlist of five names: From today's Herald, big man names C's have discussed: Jerome Jordan, Tim Ohlbrecht, Shavlik Randolph, Louis Amundson, D.J.

White in their sights for 10-day deal now that White's season in China is over — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 22, 2013 This post will include a brief review of these candidates, and because DJ White looks like the prior target, I'll start with him. Those who like size will be a bit disappointed to learn that he's only 6-9. The 29th pick of 2008 NBA Draft ...

Charlotte Bobcats Complete Most Insignificant Trade of All Time

I’m so excited about the Bobcats trading Hakim Warrick to the Magic for Josh McRoberts! Not because I think the trade will matter much—seriously, Weird Al Yankovic albums have more significance than this deal—but because it frees me up from having to think about last night’s loss to the Pistons. Against Detroit, the Bobcats sandwiched [...]

Celtics looking for second wind

The Celtics marched into Laker-land with dead feet and tired minds. You could see from the get go that the momentum they had built prior to the all-star break was drying up faster than Kevin Garnett's resolve. We could argue and beat a dead horse about the lack of point guard play, but no one hardly speaks about the elephant in the room.  The very real need for a rugged big...

Bobcats outplayed in lopsided loss to Bulls

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - It wasn't hard to figure out Friday night why the Charlotte Bobcats have the worst record in the NBA. You didn't even have to look at the scoreboard, the one reading 105-75 in favor of the Chicago Bulls. Forget their league-worst 42 percent field-goal shooting, too. Forget that Charlotte likely didn't start a single player that would have started...

Green Envy: What Suns fans said - 2/22

No KG? No problem! This game wasn’t fun to watch if you are a Suns fan, and the forums showed. Jeff Green started at center for the C’s and had his way with them. The Suns fans were out in full quirkiness with their unabashed sorrow for their awful team. The only thing they got jacked up for was when the Morris’s bro and Garrett got some PT…. oh the good ‘ol days of getting...

Lakers Honor Dr.Buss, Trounce Celtics

The greatest rivalry in all of basketball usually doesn't need any extra story lines to enhance the game but on a tragic night like yesterday there wasn't any way to ignore them.
