BOSTON — The dunk of the night Wednesday night at TD Garden came from … Kelly Olynyk? Now, don’t get us wrong: as a true 7-footer, the Celtics center certainly has the physical tools to rock the rim. Dunking just never really has been Olynyk’s forte. He showed against the Orlando Magic, however, that he can, in fact, throw it down from time. In the opening minute of the fourth...

Who Dat Gonna Overlook Dem Saints?

Does the NFC South deserve to have a team in the playoffs?  I may be in the minority (Brady Quinn agrees with me http://www.footballbyfootball.com/column/nfc-south-is-rising-no-playoff-change-needed), but I believe it does.  Every team sets goals during training camp and one of those goals is to win the division. Therefore, a division title has to mean something.  It means you’ve...
