LeBron James single-handedly eliminated the Celtics in the conference finals. His team snatched away formerly beloved Celtics player Ray Allen in free agency. Is there any other way LeBron can torture Celtics fans this year? How about Powerade plopping down a billboard in the Boston area congratulating its star endorser on his first NBA title?
The billboard, which greets traffic traveling on I-93, reads, “Congrats LeBron. A championship has a nice ring to it,” inscribed next to an image of a smiling LeBron. Even worse: it sits only a few miles away from TD Garden.
Boston just became a Gatorade-only city.

I recently won a contest from the boys over at Community Gum. Andy and Jon held a contest revolving around the NBA Finals, with entrants asked to predict who would win it all, the combined score from the final game, and who would be selected as Finals' MVP. I'm happy to have won, but what I'm most proud of is that my prediction of the Heat and LeBron as Finals' MVP...

The hottest debate of the moment is which “dream team” would beat the other team?
The answer is pretty obvious yet there are those that want to hang on to their feelings because they were born at a certain time and they feel a certain way.
I get it and I understand it but the truth is the truth and you can’t take away the truth.
To really size the argument up you can’t...
