It’s inevitable that the Boston Celtics will look considerably different next season. And while there is a report that Danny Ainge is “open” to bringing everyone back, you have to think that it just won’t happen. As it stands now, Paul Pierce will definitely be back. Rajan Rondo should as well, but they’ve tried to trade him once so you never know. As for Garnett, if he doesn’t retire, he’ll draw a ton of interest. And Ray Allen may be looking for greener pastures.

Blame Boston? Why the Celtics helped send the Sonics packing, the Heat free agent hunting, and LeBron out of town for good and how Ray Allen may have single-handedly changed the course of NBA history

SCOTT JACOBS Lost in the subplots of one of the most highly anticipated NBA Finals in years, is a side-story that stretches from Lake Eerie to the Northwest. The Seattle SuperSonics no longer exist and the Cleveland Cavaliers were once again irrelevant in 2011-12 despite a promising rookie campaign from Kyrie Irving. None of that matters. Starting Tuesday Night each city will have...

How the 'Big Three' era should be remembered

Before I start, I need to apologize for the long absence. Since I'm currently writing this, it's obvious I'm not dead. I didn't lose interest or my faith in the Celtics or writing.

Comments from the other side - ECF - Heat Game 7 6/9

 Heat fans are probably the worst fanbase in the league.   I mean, they trash just about every player when they make a bad play or miss some shots.  They even trashed James in one game and were ready to trade him,  so no one is immune.  Their team gets down 9 and suddenly they hate the team.  It has no heart.  Break it up.  Trade everyone.  They are just terrible fans! ...
