The Dream Team.
The greatest team ever assembled.
A collection of some of the greatest players to ever play the game.
….. and Christian Laettner.
Well, the Dookie can finally get some burn for the Dream Team… if you get the new NBA 2K13 game. Yep, you can start Laettner if you want… you can turn the fatigue off, turn the difficulty way down, and drop a hundred on some poor saps with him if you’d like (which I’ve NEVER done after creating myself and setting all my attributes to 99). And this Dream Team will need him…. since there’s no Scottie Pippen.
Me? I’m never playing him a single second. I’m just shooting with Larry Bird, thank you very much. All L B all day long.

We may never be able to settle the Dream Team vs. 2012 Team debates in real life, but this fall, gamers will have a chance to find out who was the best team in the virtual world.
This still bums me out.
I’m so happy Larry Bird doesn’t play today. Somehow, some way, people would over-analyze him, overreact to him, and over-emphasize things that aren’t important about him.
The back injury that ultimately shortened his career? He hurt it putting up a retaining wall at his Indiana home… when he easily could have paid someone.
He broke his hand during...
Larry Bird retired on August 18,1992 and as Magic Johnson said when Larry's number was retired, there will never, ever be another Larry Bird. I wrote my tribute to Larry on August 2. Lex had several great articles written by the great Bob Ryan about Larry here, here, here, here, here, and here. Grampa Celtic sure does love Larry.
I know there will be many more tributes and...
For several San Antonio Spurs fans, Manu Ginobili is their favorite player. He whips passes where they normally wouldn't go, leaves decade younger defenders falling to the floor, steps up and takes over in crucial moments and awes fans on a game-by-game basis. Oh, and speaking Spanish doesn't hurt either.Aside from that he has respect from his teammates and peers around the...
For those of you thinking that NBA 2K13 was primed to put the 1992 Olympic Dream Team in this year's game, you would be correct.Check out the below screenshot of the entire team that will be playable in the game against the 2012 London Summer Olympics team:Two interesting side notes:-> Charles Barkley is playable on the 1992 Dream Team after not being included in the last...
Bob Ryan started his career as the Celtics beat writer in the fall of 1968. It so happens that it was in 1969 that I discovered the Celtics and fell in love with them. Ryan not only covered the Celtics, but he developed a close relationship with the team and the front office as well. Bob was also well known to the refs and he often worked them from his position at the press table...
Boston Celtics forward Larry Bird came into his own in the 1983-’84 season.
The fourth best team in Boston Celtics’ history was the 1983-’84 team. This squad was coming off a devastating loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in the postseason the year before with a very talented roster. They had too many players who filled similar roles. President Red Auerbach signed guard Danny Ainge...
Let’s end the debate! We’ll finally know which team is better: the 2012 US Mens Basketball team or the 1992 Dream Team. We can thank Jay-Z and the NBA 2k franchise for this.
NBA 2K posted the following on its Facebook page:
“You’ve asked for it and now you’re getting it – NBA 2K13 is proud to bring you both the legendary 1992 Dream Team and the...
The madness continues byond the top 4 plays of the year but not before the previous two matchups were voted on and two plays won the clear vote. The third seed, Pierce’s bomb in Game 5 easily beat Stiemsma’s block on Josh Smith. However, in a huge upset, Pierce’s three to move ahead of Larry Bird into second all-time on the Celtics’ scoring list got 3/4 of the vote...
