ESPN ‘Branded’ thinks Joakim Noah, Birdman, Shelden Williams are ugly

ESPN’s Nine for IX documentary “Branded” debuted this week, and the film took unnecessary jabs at the looks of a few male athletes. The documentary focused on the inequality between male and female athletes when it comes to pay and sponsorship opportunities.

New Celtics Locker Name Plates

The Celtics have released a photo on instagram of the new plates that will go on the Celtics lockers this season. The season is getting closer and closer. I'm getting more and more excited for it to start. A neat feature of the locker plates is that they feature the names of all the Celtics that wore the numbers before. I love that they put the former players on the nameplates...

Nets-Warriors Preview

The New Jersey Nets and Golden State Warriors are both 13th in their respective conferences. While the Nets are coming off a win over one of the East's better teams, the Warriors fell to the West's worst club. If injury-plagued New Jersey's recent efforts by the Bay are any indication, though, another win could be hard to come by as it opens a four-game road swing Friday...

Anthony Tolliver, Derrick Williams, Wayne Ellington are your adds (in order) for every day Michael Beasley is out and maybe even some of the days he’s in. Because even when he’s in, he’s kind of out. I don’t like recommending these three guys, but the playoffs are upon us and people have holes to fill. It seems that Toll Iver (pronounced Ee-vare) is a solid 12/7 option who...

After starting the season 0-3, the Celtics have bounced back to win their last three games since Paul Pierce’s return to the floor.  As far as I’m concerned, the (lack of a) preseason that the Celtics needed to get comfortable is finally over, and they can use tonight’s game to keep improving while gaining a fourth straight win, and their first winning record of 2012.
