What the Hell Happened to...Raef LaFrentz?

He was a High School All American and a college teammate of former Celtics' Paul Pierce and Scot Pollard.  He was the #3 pick in the 98 draft, a draft whose best players wound up getting selected at #s 9 and 10.  Along with Theo Ratliff he became synonmous with the term "expiring contract." If you followed the Celtics just last decade you absolutely remember Raef LaFrentz.Raef...

Why the Washington Wizards do not need Paul Pierce

Paul Pierce was arguably Washington's second best player throughout last season's playoff run. He repeatedly had the ball in his hands with the game on the line and took charge when it mattered most. Pierce was utilized as a stretch four after spending most of the regular season at the three spot, relatively floundering in a miscast role that didn't maximize his strengths or hide...

The Washington Wizards will embrace small ball now that Kevin Seraphin is officially gone

The Washington Wizards deployed an antiquated playing style last season. They were slow, big and didn't shoot many threes. Then the postseason started and head coach Randy Wittman plugged Paul Pierce in at power forward. The results opened more than a few eyes, and Washington responded over the summer by re-shaping its roster to better suit small-ball tactics. Part of that meant...

Doc Rivers Could Barely Watch Paul Pierce’s ‘Awful’ First Pitch (Video)

Doc Rivers feels for Paul Pierce, but that doesn’t mean he won’t make fun of him. It has nothing to do with basketball, of course. Rivers’ sympathy for one of his newest players centers around a ceremonial first pitch of all things. Pierce showed he lacks much baseball skill earlier this week when the new Los Angeles Clippers swingman threw out the first pitch at a Dodgers...

How the loss of Paul Pierce affects the Washington Wizards

In a slightly lesser version of the “I’m Coming Home” campaign, Paul Pierce decided to return to his hometown of Inglewood, California and join the Los Angeles Clippers. The irony is that this signing barely improves the Clippers, however, simultaneously weakens Pierce’s former squad. The Washington Wizards ooze of young talent and athleticism, especially in their backcourt...
