The BCS Standings have once again been released and there are just two more weeks left in the season for Kevin Garnett to shout out, “anything is possible!”
How things can change on the drop of a hat, and all of a sudden all of those what if scenarios have come true.
I have been hammering it home with how the dominoes would fall, and boy did they ever!
The Oregon Ducks were only ranked second by most pollsters, but they were likely going to surpass everybody to the top spot with the tough slate of games they had upcoming.
Well, it did not take long for the Ducks to bite the dust and their BCS title are now hanging in the balance.
They need USC to stun the Irish, and of course they need to take care of their own business against Oregon State.
If the top four loses then all of a sudden a Kansas State or Florida State/Florida would be right there for a crack at the BCS title. Hey, who knows who is going to w...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Celtics allow 94.6 points per 100 possessions when Kevin Garnett plays and 114.2 when he is on the bench.
There has been an air of negativity around the Celtics recently, due to their high expectations and slow start. The Celtics are currently 6-5, and 4th in the Atlantic Division, which we have ruled since the start of the Kevin Garnett era. We are ranked 22nd in defense, 30th in OREB%, and simply just look bad right now. But here is something I want to say: Do not forget we are missing...
Talk about ironic. In the top 10 assists of the week, there isn't one assist from the league's assist leader. However, #2 belongs to Kevin Garnett. Good stuff and fun to watch.

After Rajon Rondo's 20 assist game against the Raptors today, much of the post-game discussion surrounded Rondo's potential MVP candidacy. Jason Terry said that Rondo is the best point guard in the NBA and deserves to be considered in this year's MVP race, and Kevin Garnett likened Rondo's abilities to that of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. From an interview with WEEI...
8 a.m. ET: These Pistons are redefining the nickname, “Bad Boys.”
Through 10 games, the Pistons are really bad. They lost their first eight games and followed up their first win of the season with a loss to the rebuilding Magic. Greg Monroe is still an improving young big man, but once-key players like Rodney Stuckey and Will Bynum have continued their fall toward irrelevance...
After several grind-it-out style games in a row, Boston desperately needed an easy win. We can debate whether or not a game that was close until the final minutes of the third quarter counts as “easy,” but I think we can all agree that any game in which Pierce and Garnett can comfortably sit the entire fourth quarter is a roaring success.Once you’ve stopped Gino-dancing around...
Jared Sullinger, Kevin Garnett, and Jason Terry interview following the Celtics Saturday afternoon win vs. the Raptors.

The Boston Celtics are significantly better on defense with Kevin Garnett on the floor. The Celtics allow 94.6 points per 100 possessions when Garnett plays and 114.2 when he is on the bench. The 19.6 point gap runs the spectrum from a defense amongst the NBA's best to worst.
Even by using just the eyeball test, it's easy to see KG is still the defensive...

The Celtics did their best last night to give these poor Pistons fans something to cheer about. However, they were so busy waiting for a collapse that they couldn't enjoy it. And what's a CFTOS without a wheelchair mention and complaints about the refs. Although, they do admit that they got their share of the calls too. Enjoy today's Comments....

I love sneakers, and I’ve been called a sneaker-head, but I learned this past weekend that I’m nowhere near the sneaker-head that has come to define the recent explosion in sneaker collecting.
I am to true sneaker-heads what the occasional pot smoker is to Charlie Sheen. I love my kicks, and I can’t resist impulse purchases when I see something I like. But I wear my sneakers...
While the Celtics took care of business and beat the Toronto Raptos 107-89, Rajon Rondo piled up the 6th 20-assists game of his career. The C’s point-guard, though, had very little to say about it. Kevin Garnett, on the other hand, was not as shy and said he has never seen anyone “control the floor” [...]
