Rod Thorn current general manager of the 76ers is stepping down with Mike Zarren a serious candidate to replace ThornThe more I read about Boston Celtics assistant general manager Mike Zarren, the more upset I get that the Celtics are likely to lose him, if not this year then in the near future.Zarren is a Harvard law graduate, who is known for his state-of-the-art replay system where players can instantly access highlights of the opposition. Furthermore he is know as the Celtics’ “salary cap and collective bargaining agreement expert” (http://www.vermontlaw.edu/students/x8291.xml) and regularly speaks at the M.I.T. Sloan Conference, where new statistical ways to analyze the game of basketball are presented to GMs and coaches across the world.Some other important information:Danny Ainge calls Zarren his “secret weapon”Pierce calls him “M.I.T.” in spite of Zarren never attendingKG calls him “Numbers”Sounds like it would be a big hit to the Celtics if he ends up winning and takin...

Boston Celtics assistant general manager Mike Zarren is a serious candidate for the Sixers general manager position, sources with knowledge of the search told SI.com.

I loved the pick up of Jason Terry. Ever since I started watching him play I've nicknamed him "Dagger Three" because all he does is hit those threes that just crush the hearts of opponents. I also love him because of his enthusiasm, confidence, and loyalty to any team he plays for. The guy has already gotten a leprechaun tattoo on his forearm. Respect.
"Until last year, when Miami won, the average age of an NBA championship team was 34 and up, and so that goes to tell you that you have to have that veteran experience, that leadership that knowing guys have been there before. And so, that's why I like our team. You got that with a good mix of young guys and you got yourself a championship contender."
The offseason was reminiscent of a storm brewing off a shoreline, that shoreline being the Boston harbor. Danny Ainge was able to collect pieces that will have the Boston Celtics in a better position than last year. This is remarkable considering last year’s team lost to the Miami Heat in seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Before deciding to sign with the Boston Celtics, Jason Terry spent eight years with the Dallas Mavericks. In those eight years, Terry won a NBA championship and was consistently one of the best sixth men in the league. Those credentials are nothing to scoff at. There are plenty of players in the league that would love to have a NBA championship and be regarded as one of the best...
I finally had the opportunity last week to see the much heralded documentary "Once Brothers." It aired months ago on ESPN, but I'll be honest with you with the exception of Celtics games, I try to watch as little ESPN as possible. One thing that ESPN is good for is it's 30 for 30 documentaries and "Once Brothers" was tremendous. I highly recommend it...
Prior to joining the Mavericks, earning a Sixth Man Award, and winning the NBA Title, Jason Terry played 403 games for the Atlanta Hawks. Being that all 403 of these games took place during the regular season, this doesn’t represent the most memorable span of JET’s impressive career. I mean, seriously… when’s the last time you came across any sort of reference to...
