Video: Isaiah Thomas’ wrist seems to be doing just fine

It’s summer Pro-Am season… where NBA players play in various games, either for charity or just for fun, against a bunch of guys who think they’re good players. These NBA players invariably have ridiculous games, which highlights how much better they are than that former D-2 guy who dominates your men’s league at the Y. Isaiah Thomas was one of those guys.

SI projects the Celtics at 47 win (shares)

The other day I was whining on Twitter about how the rebuild wasn’t quite moving along as I had hoped. Judging by the poll on this site, I’m clearly in the minority. Today I stumbled upon SI’s standings projections based on win shares. It has the Celtics 5th in the East with 47 win shares. What the hell is a win share?

Pierce also says “this is probably the last ride of my career. I think this is where I’m going to end it.” He also uses the word “championship” at least three times. It’s pretty clear he’d love to win another ring before he...
