Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
The new members of the staff - Mike Longabardi and Jamie Young - met with returnees Kevin Eastman and Armond Hill, along with head coach Doc Rivers for several hours earlier this month, and they plan to continue getting together until the lockout ends. The Celtics are not going to rest, according to Rivers, who said he is enjoying his time off but itching to return.
“We work on our stuff, we work on our team,’’ Rivers said. “We talk about the things we did well, the things we didn’t do well last year, what we need to do this year to not lose to Miami. As a staff, you just work and get ready, and that’s all you can do.’’
Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has not organized a workout of his teammates but said he will look into it in the near future. Kevin Garnett was asked the same question a fe
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Since coming to Boston Kevin Garnett has been a model Celtic. He hates losing more than he loves winning, his emotional charge could inspire anyone to run through a brick wall, his defensive tenacity has been the newfound backbone of the franchise, and his skill level, even at 35, is a sight to be seen at the power forward position.
Before coming to Boston KG was still an absolutely...
Rajon Rondo is spending a lot of time this offseason working out at the University of Kentucky, where he once showed occasional signs of greatness but nothing near the (mostly) consistent brilliance he now displays in Boston. At Kentucky, Rondo has been under the watchful eye of John Calipari, who, truth be told, might be trying to recruit Rondo back to the sschool (wink...
It seems that one Celtic who has been working non-stop throughout the summer has been Jeff Green. Green seems to be at every event that he is able to participate in, which should give Celtics fans some hope that he will improve upon his play from last seasons Playoffs. Green this weekend participated in the US Tracking Fleet Invitational in Oklahoma City this weekend with the likes...
Delonte West really needs a full-time beat writer dedicated solely to covering his daily life. Without any actual games going on, West's schenanigans are the most interesting NBA-related news during the lockout. The latest proof of this came Monday when the free agent guard tweeted that he had purchased a white 1994 Ford Bronco, "O.J. Simpson style," for no discernible...
Delonte West is quickly becoming one of our favorite athletes because of the personality he’s displayed via social media. Back in August, he talked about taking a job at Home Depot during the lockout. Though that never worked out, he did end up with a job at a furniture store. Now he’s talking about buying [...]
Due to the fact that B-Paul and Nick can’t come to agreement on the split of BRI (Broadcasting Related Income), we have decided to cancel tonight’s episode of the Celtics Late Night Show. Nick and B-Paul are both demanding fifty-three percent of the BRI for the amount of hard work they put into each and every show. Unfortunately there is only 100% available so the negotiations...
SHOULDA CALLED AAA
Delonte West hasn’t exactly been enjoying the best of times during the NBA lockout. Kenyon Martin, JR Smith, Deron Williams, and others have headed overseas to hoop it up (and make some money). Unfortunately, a judge said West couldn’t leave the country so he got a job at a furniture store. In today’s episode of [...]

Anybody surprised by this? It's Delonte being Delonte.
I know both sides haven't really come close to a final agreement, but there actually has been some progress in these NBA negotiations. Among the new elements of this deal are an amnesty clause, and a new "stretch" exception.
There will be a one-time “amnesty” provision that will allow each team to waive a player (with pay) without his salary counting against...
Recently, Delonte West has filled our interesting people quota here on That NBA Lottery Pick and with the below Twitter happening, he'll stay near the top.Here's the Twitter recap of the Ford Bronco story:(Courtesy of I Am A GM)
This week in What the Hell Happened To we remember former power forward, Sidney Wicks.
Wicks was a beast in college to say the least. In his 3 seasons UCLA went 86-4 and won 3 national titles. He helped bridge the gap between Lew Alcindor and Bill Walton.
However Wicks' dominant college game and team success did not translate into team success in the pros. The No. 2...
Hopefully Delonte West wasn't late to his job at Regency Furniture Showrooms, or to a probation meeting for that matter. Probation officers tend to frown on their parolees emulating O.J. Simpson, but Delonte wisely is going to pain the Ford Bronco. He's taking suggestions on his twitter.
Ray Allen has more time on his hands than usual because of the NBA lockout. As a result, he's frequently hitting the links. Allen was among those who participated in the pro-am portion of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic in Florida last week. "I think it keeps me from going crazy," Allen said of golf, according to the Orland Sentinel. "A lot...
While the current NBA players are fighting for their rights in the form of this excruciating, seemingly never-ending lockout, we figured now was a great time to look back on one of the most unheralded pro bballers in history: former Philadelphia 76ers guard Andrew Toney. The feature below was originally published in SLAM 38.—Ed.
