The beauty of a setting sun

The sun sets every evening, but only occasionally are the clouds splayed perfectly across the night sky to draw an array of yellow, orange and blue pastels and catch your attention so beautifully that a higher power suddenly seems like a greater possibility. Not one to watch sunsets routinely, I occasionally glance at the sky in the evening at the right time and wonder why I don’t...

Is Jermaine O'Neal Good Enough at Center for Celtics to Contend for an NBA Title?

If only this were 2004, a front line of Jermaine O'Neal, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce would undisputedly be the best in the NBA.

Garnett has not played more than 71 games in any season since 2006-07. O...

Celtics 94, Wizards 86: Rondo, Garnett too much for Washington

I imagine Rashard Lewis wakes up each morning, admires his grizzly goatee in the mirror, thanks God (or Otis Smith) for his $118 million contract and then spends 45 minutes throwing darts at a board adorned with photos of Nick Young, Andray Blatche and Jordan Crawford. It took just 18 seconds for Young to launch his first step-back, contested jump shot of the night. Blatche continued...

John Wall shines, but Rajon Rondo is better as Celtics top Wizards

Before the start of Sunday’s game against Boston, Wizards Coach Flip Saunders told John Wall to have fun again. The point guard did just that, and as a result, Wall turned in his best game statistically.
