Brandon BossNo, that wasn’t a typo. Brandon Bass = Brandon Boss. He had 20 points and 11 rebounds yesterday while shooting 9-13. But the stats alone don’t tell the story. I’m confident when Boss shoots jumpers. I’m happy when he gets aggressive (which is almost all the time). I’m thrilled that he has the athleticism to finish in traffic and not get his shot blocked 95% of the time. And I’m shocked that some backup power forwards have the hops (and slim physique) required to leap over opponents for rebounds. (Note: In case you didn’t notice, I was staring directly at Glen Davis while writing those last four sentences.)I promise I won’t compare Boss to Davis all season. But Boss already matched Davis’ 2010-11 season high for rebounds, and his 20 points would have been Davis’ second-highest output all of last season. And if you listen to Kevin Garnett’s quote about Boss, Doc Rivers wasn’t the only one impatiently waiting for Davis’ contract to expire.“Brandon’s going to give us, o

Kevin Garnett is one of the NBA's fiercest competitors, which sometimes results in him exchanging words with opposing players. Things got a bit more heated than usual at the conclusion of Sunday's season opener, though. Garnett was unable to sink the final shot, which allowed the Knicks to hold on for a 106-104 victory in what was a very intense, back-and-forth battle at...
How old is too old? The Boston Celtics could very well answer that question for us this season. Since the Celtics won the title in 2008, there has always been talk of the current season being the Big Three’s “last chance.” Experts said it two years ago when Boston lost in the NBA Finals. They also said it last season and many are going with it again this year. With...
Shaking my head.
I love Kevin Garnett. I loved him as a player before he was traded to the Celtics. I respected him as a man crying because of his loyalty to losing franchise. I’ve always respected the passion and the intensity that make him the player that he is. But when is it enough? When does the passion and intensity become more of a burden than an advantage? Maybe I’m...

Kevin Garnett will avoid punishment thanks to the good graces of the NBA and will join the 0-1 Boston Celtics on December 27th @ 8:00pm to take on the 1-0 Miami Heat.
Garnett, after bricking a game winning buzzer-beater against the Knicks, bullishly lunged at Bill Walkers throat before being saved by Baron Davis (of all people). Walker no doubt deserved it for running his...

The NBA started, on Christmas, what was an unbelievable set of games. First game. Celtics, aging yet gaining BRANDON BASS? Rondo plays like he’s on fire. Ray Allen can still drop 3’s, and BRANDON BASS? WOW. They can still play. Just don’t watch them any time on a back to back. Which will be a lot. Jajuan Johnson and Etwaun Moore will have their hands full trying to sub in...

Boston Celtics Key Members: Brandon Bass, Marquis Daniels, Mickael Pietrus, Keyon Dooling, Chris Wilcox With a very dense schedule due to the lockout, this aging Celtics team really needs some depth on their bench to stay fresh.

Kevin Harlan has had some very notable calls over the course of his broadcasting career, especially the "With no regard for human life" call of LeBron James' slam dunk over Kevin Garnett in the 2007 NBA Playoffs. Last night he dropped another gem during the Lakers-Jazz broadcast.
Metta... World... PEACE!
The thrilling Knicks/Celtics game yesterday ended on an ugly note, as an angry Kevin Garnett pushed Bill Walker in the neck after missing the game-tying shot. Newsday captured Walker’s reaction: “After Bill Walker contested Kevin Garnett’s unsuccessful attempt to tie the score in the final seconds, the two former Celtics teammates exchanged harsh words. Garnett then put his...
It seemed like a repeat of Games 1 and 2 of last year’s NBA Quarterfinal between the Knicks and Celtics was brewing when the two teams met today; the Knicks lead at halftime and quickly coughed it up in the second half.
But this time around, it was a proven different Knicks team, and a different outcome. After Carmelo Anthony knocked down two free throws, and Kevin Garnett missed...
