What the Hell Happened to...Pervis Ellison?

20 years ago.  20 years is a long time.  But the optimism that Pervis Ellison and Dominique Wilkins brought to Celtics fans in the summer of 1994 was nothing short of intoxicating.  At the time, after coming off the 1994 campaign which was unequivocally the most disastrous Celtics' team of my short life, anything was bound to get you optimistic.  ML Carr inked Dominique.  And...

Joel Embiid’s Risk, Reward Outweighs Everything Else In 2014 NBA Draft

For the last few months, Joel Embiid has been the popular answer to the question, “Who’s No. 1?” He’s since been downgraded to “Who’s No. 4?” or even “Who’s No. 11?” Embiid could be selected almost anywhere in the 2014 NBA draft on Thursday.

Joakim Noah credits his All-Star bid to D.J. Augustin

I’ve been following D.J. Augustin’s career for some time now. From his state championship winning days at Brother Martin High School in New Orleans, to his time alongside Kevin Durant at Texas in which he averaged 14 ppg in 2006, and now to his underwhelming professional career.
