A USA Today article from yesterday quoted McHale on his feelings about seeing the Heat move past Boston, saying: "I'd kind of like to see the streak go a little bit, because it's so unique," McHale said before the Rockets played Golden State on Sunday night. "It's cool and I think that everybody starts watching the NBA a little bit more. It's good for the league."

McHale also had another interesting quote about winning streaks, which the Celtics can relate to:  "You do get bored a little bit, and you get complacent," McHale said. "You sta...

Jason Terry selling Mercer Island mansion for $2.5 million (PICS)

Heat escape Boston with a 105-103 win; streak hits 23 despite career game from Jeff Green

Ugh. The Celtics, without Kevin Garnett (and Rondo, and Sullinger, and Barbosa..) had the Heat right where they wanted them. They were up 17 in the first half, and 13 with 8:27 to go in the 4th.

The Prayer List: Jason Terry And Joakim Noah Need Your Well Wishes

Ed’s Note: There are times when dunks, crossovers, insane tackles and other things that can cause extreme embarrassment to players and raucous laughter amongst the consumers of live sports, yet don’t meet the (singular, as in mine, and mine only) criteria of what should be an obituary post. Therefore, I figured I’d try something new. [...]The post The Prayer List: Jason Terry...

LeBron James Gives Jason Terry the Brandon Knight Treatment

I've been looking for it, but I haven't seen it yet. Brandon Knight has to tweet something in regards to the dunk that LeBron James threw down on Jason Terry Monday night. It doesn't have to be much. Something simple like "I guess everyone is going to quit making fun of me now #jasonterry" or some derivation of that would work. The taunting was...
