Garnett Leads the Celtics to victory

Kevin Garnett may be 36 years old but he still plays with the same fire and passion that he did as a rookie. Garnett was unstoppable in the Boston Celtics game 5 win over the Miami Heat 94 to 90.

The Basketball Gods smite Miami with block-to-3-pointer comeuppance

This play was all kinds of amazing in a very short time:   The block by Wade on the Bass dunk attempt?  Nasty?  Rondo recognizing in the span of less than two seconds, that Mickael Pietrus is in the corner and then slapping it to him while getting fouled (how big was THAT no-call??) was ridiculous.  Pietrus hitting the 3... well... that was probably just luck the way he was...

Jeff Van Gundy thinks Mickael Pietrus should be fined one million dollars for flopping

Jeff Van Gundy has made no secret of his dislike for flopping. We hear him countless times complaining on national TV about NBA players flopping like European soccer stars on the court. I don’t blame him. The flopping has been taken to new heights. Then again, so has Van Gundy’s proclamations. In JVG’s newest outburst he claims the NBA should fine Mickael Pietrus $1 million...

Forget the Heat, Celtics are the Real Story

Take a trip back to February 22nd. The Boston Celtics had a record of 15-17, were almost out of the playoff picture, and were on a five game losing streak. Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett all were being tagged with the “washed up” label, and the story around this team was whether or not it was time to move forward and start a new era of C’s basketball at the trade...

After Boston Mayor Thomas Menino's 'KJ and Hondo' comment, What Is His Best Blunder?

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has gotten a lot of laughs in this city over the last decade. Since Boston sports teams have been winning titles and making deep postseason runs, Menino is often asked his opinion and to give some predictions. Most recently, he mixed up Kevin Garnett's "KG" nickname and called him, "KJ." In the same interview, he said "Hondo...

Video: Lebron Steps Up in Game 6

This is what MVP’s do. When their team needs them and it’s win or go home, they rise up to the occasion, put their team on their back and get the W. Last night, Lebron James epitomized what it means to be an MVP. 45 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists and 1 win. The last stat is the only number that really matters for the Miami Heat as they get the critical game 6 victory, 98-79,...
