The real reason why we hate LeBron

Anyone else annoyed with some media members “preaching” on LeBron James? The same people who have blasted him for quitting on the Cavs and “The Decision,” are now insisting fans stop hating and give James his due respect. I respect LeBron James. He’s an incredible basketball talent. The best player in the NBA. A champion. But I don’t like him. And I never will, no matter...

Nicholson, Harkless and Melo are potential draft targets

During an appearance yesterday on WEEI, Danny Ainge said he does not expect the Celtics to select a transcendent player: “[The draft is] not that deep, no,” Ainge said Wednesday afternoon. “It won’t have as many transcendent players as [the 2003] draft had. But I think when people say it’s deep, I think that you might get a player that can break into your rotation at 30...

The Celtics are no longer sharing the Red Claws with anyone

The NBA’s Developmental league is still a work in progress.  Many teams share affiliations with their D-League teams with other NBA franchises.  For example, the Celtics shared their affiliation to the Maine Red Claws with Philadelphia and Charlotte, which meant roster slots had to remain available for either of those three teams to send a player down if they so chose. It...

Wizards making moves, trade for Ariza & Okafor

The Washington Wizards are an intriguing team.  They have talent, but they haven’t been able to turn that talent into wins.  They started to re-make their roster last season, grabbing Nene from the Nuggets for JaVale McGee in a deal that also sent Nick Young to the Clippers. Now, the Wizards are making more moves, sending Rashard Lewis and a second round pick for Trevor Ariza and...

Perk questions Scott Brooks’ rotations

Old friend Kendrick Perkins is never afraid to speak his mind: All series long Thunder coach Scott Brooks has been taking flack for his handling of the Thunder rotations — sitting Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook at the same time, leaving guys with hot hands on the bench, not seeming to have a feel for his team. It’s not just you and me, Kendrick Perkins feels the same...

Video: Rajon Rondo actually smiling and having fun on Kimmel

For those of you used to Rajon Rondo being stone faced, short with the media (or sometimes flat out angry), this is a nice little change of pace.  Rajon joined Knicks center Tyson Chandler via Skype on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night for a game of Skype Scavenger Hunt. I know WEEI’s Ben Rohrbach calls this classic Rondoism, but you tell me how often you see Rondo laugh this...

JaJuan Johnson picked KG’s brain all season long

We’re a bit obsessed with Kevin Garnett, because Kevin Garnett is the trigger to the entire Celtics offseason.  He’s also a freak of nature who played some amazingly great basketball at 36 years old, after 17 years in the league, at the end of a compressed season that killed everyone physically.  The simple fact is, he’s still good, so we still want him. There’s another...
