Alvin Williams & Sean Marks Almost Played for the Celtics?

 It's true! Alvin Williams and Sean Marks were traded to Boston on February 10, 2000 for Danny Fortson.  Here's the Buffoon's explanation at the time:"We just weren't able to get Danny the minutes he was looking for," Celtics general manager Chris Wallace said. "We were not confident in our ability to re-sign Danny this summer. No one wants to lose...

Sean Kilpatrick favorite for AAC player of year

Over the course of seven years - from 1995-96 through 2001-02 - the University of Cincinnati basketball program produced the Conference USA player of the year five times. Danny Fortson won the award in 1996 and 1997, Kenyon Martin in 2000 and Steve Logan in 2001 and 2002. No UC player has won a conference player of the year award since then. But it appears that’s about to change...

The Celtics had a ton of offensive rebounds last night

The Celtics had 22 offensive rebounds in last night’s loss to the Pelicans. 22. Twenty-two.  That’s more than double their average. We haven’t seen an ORB number like that since 2008. Offensive rebounding was never a priority for Doc Rivers. He cared more about getting back on defense than hitting the glass. It’s hard to argue with that philosophy when the Celtics ranked...

Crosstown Smackdown

Cincinnati still hasn't defeated Xavier in back to back years since Danny Fortson was on the cover of SI. That continued with an embarrassing 17 point, 64-47 beat down tonight. Cincinnati has a couple of huge issues. The same issues they've had all year. They can't score, they don't have good interior defense, they don't play that well in the second half. All...

What the Hell Happened to...Gerry Ward?

Ever go to a zoo and take the gift shop for granted?  Former Celtic Gerry Ward likely never did.  This week in What the Hell Happened To we go back to the 1960s to remember Gerry Beaver Ward. Gerry played his high school ball at Cardinal Hayes in the Bronx (alma mater of Jamal Mashburn in more recent years), in the always-competitive CHSAA before taking his talents to Boston College...

Season Review: The Program

The college basketball season has officially ended for everyone. It's a disappointing time for yours truly because college basketball is far and away my favorite sport. The teams I've been rooting for my entire life, the teams that I've cared about the most, the teams that have meant the most to me have been college basketball teams. There is something about college hoops...

How long can you listen to this?

In my never-ending quest to find out exactly What the Hell Happened to Danny Fortson , I've stumbled upon this. How long can you listen to this for? I made it to 4:54.  I love hearing at 2:41 him being "undersized" to play center.  I had forgotten about the trade for Alvin Williams and Sean Marks that was rescinded since Williams failed his physical.  Would'...

The Bearcats Blog Top 30 Countdown: #12 Damon Flint

The next member of the Bearcats Blog countdown is a person that I originally had ranked higher. When I dug into the stats, he wasn't quite as great as I remembered. He is still a great player, hell I have him ranked 12th on the list, but he's not a top 10 player. He is one of the rare players on the countdown that is a Cincinnati product. He was a McDonald's All American...

The Art Long Challenge

If you follow me on twitter, you will notice that I've become a bit obsessed about a certain idea. This tends to happen a lot, #TeamHeadband, but in this case, this is something that can happen. This is something that you the reader, student, arts and crafts person can make happen. The inspiration for this came on Sunday. While watching Rutgers play Syracuse, I noticed that the...
