Some are using the Celtics' first round exit this year as proof that the window that was opened when the trades for Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen were made is closed.

Every so often I need to revisit some of the great players of recent times, just to remind myself how phenomenal these talents truly were. Guys like Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Jordan and even the likes of youthful Grant Hill and Penny Hardaway are all worth remembering for the unusual talents they exhibited for us on the basketball court.
Allen Iverson was one of those players...
Kenny Kadji from the U, is a 6’11” 242 pounder with some offensive skills that would make you giggle with joy if you drafted him. From Cameroon, and already at the age of 25 years old, Kenny is projected to go in the 2nd round of this years NBA draft. Why so late in the draft? Probably because Kenny is already in his mid 20’s and he is not known as a banger in the paint eating...
