Via Adrian Wojnarowski:The Phoenix Suns have surfaced as serious contenders to sign Boston Celtics free agent Ray Allen, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.Allen, 37, is willing to explore offers beyond Boston. The Suns – regardless of whether they re-sign free-agent point guard Steve Nash – interest Allen, sources said.The Suns have significant salary-cap space, and could pay Allen more than the Miami Heat or New York Knicks.Losing Ray Allen to the Phoenix Suns would be weird for several reasons. Among them:1. The Suns aren’t a contender, or even close to it.2. When a franchise’s most attractive quality to perspective free agents is its training staff, said franchise doesn’t have very many other pulls.3. It’s difficult to imagine a franchise that spent the past decade squandering the Steve Nash era by selling first-round draft pick after first-round draft pick, suddenly shelling out big money to lure a 37-year old free agent coming off ankle surgery.So the potential of losing Alle...

I’m still skeptical. “General consensus” is based on nothing besides what everyone thinks will happen. And the source doesn’t tell you anything besides the scary possibility. ...
The Heat are currently on the top of the NBA universe, but the frightening thing for the rest of the NBA is that they could be getting significantly better over the offseason.

When Ray joined the Celtics, it marked the first time since Dee Brown pumped up his Reeboks that Boston was excited about a Celtic’s players shoes. During his time with the C’s Ray dazzled fans with his amazing shooting skills and incredible Air Jordans. Celtics green when mixed with classic Jordan silhouettes was...
Now that LeBron James has broken his self-imposed playoff Twitter sabbatical, he’s been tweeting like it’s his mission to make up for the last two months, sending totally amazing tweets about everything from seeing a Coldplay concert to dropping by David Letterman’s show to going to the dentist. Goodness gracious, how did we ever go two months without this man on Twitter?!...
OJ Mayo has been linked to the Celtics for years, and as the
Celtics build depth in the frontcourt, it is important for the C’s to add a
capable high scoring guard to the roster that could come off the bench or start
in the event of an injury. Mayo fits that description as a combo guard, a 6-4 guard with solid handle and the ability
to run the offense for stretches when Rondo...
