Delusional JR Smith thinks Bradley’s being treated like Kobe

JR Smith is a dumb basketball player. Let’s just put that down here for the record. When he’s going good, he can score like crazy. When he’s “on,” he can beat you all by himself. But he’s not bright. He does dumb things on and off the court. And every once in a while, he says really stupid things like:  “Don’t touch Avery Bradley. Apparently he’s like Kobe now...

4up/4down: Celtics vs. Cavs, Playoff Game 1

During the final week of the regular season, Celtics fans were amazed to see the Green not just qualify for the playoffs but lock in the seventh seed with two full games to play. And for most of yesterday’s first half, the Cs looked like they might just be heading for “Cinderella” status. However, the glow wore off late in the 2nd quarter, as Cleveland proved they have way...

Blazers player thinks LaMarcus Aldridge is a 50/50 shot to leave

I’ll just get this out of the way right now… I love LaMarcus Aldridge. When looking ahead to this summer and free agency, one of my hopes was that somehow, some way, Aldridge would get frustrated enough with being on a good but not great team that he’d go searching for a new situation. Well… I might be getting my wish After an atrocious performance by the Blazers that at...

Mike Gorman likes Boston over Cleveland in 6?

Mike Gorman: I think Boston in 6. Because look at the way they’ve played over the last 45-50 games. Last 40 games they have the 5th best defense in the league and 10th best offense in the league.  Cleveland has the 20th best defense in the league. I think Cleveland can be exploited. I think Cleveland if we can get in their heads in games 1 or 2, we’ll see whether there is...

The Celtics have been blistering hot for a couple of months now, but their finish to the season was stronger than any other team.

Recap: Gigi snuffs out the Bucks on last night of regular season

It took Boston a little time to get started tonight, as Milwaukee looked like the hungrier more interested team. We saw a lot of jumpers and little defense from the Celts through much of the frame. Couple that with 7 turnovers and you get yourself one lackluster 1st quarter. Khris Middleton absolutely had his way with the green teamers, putting in 13 of Milwaukee’s 25 1st quarter...

Paul Pierce lobs grenades at Brooklyn, D-Will and Ray Allen

Jackie MacMullan must have slipped Paul Pierce some truth serum because he held nothing back when discussing Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, the entire Brooklyn Nets organization and our favorite fraud… Ray Allen. Let’s start with the Nets, in general: “I’m much happier,” he said. “It was a tough situation (in Brooklyn) last year. Horrible, really. “It was just the guys’...
