Ramon Sessions On Wizards: “It’s Time To Knock The Door Down”

Ramon Sessions isn’t really the type of point guard that stimulates your emotions during a basketball discussion. A serviceable player, sure. A productive spot filler off the bench and a security blanket for the world’s best point guard, check that too. A poser of seductive glamour shots for club party flyers? The best. But what’s […] The post Ramon Sessions On Wizards: “It’s...

David Lee might be the best playmaker in Celtics' starting lineup

Talk before the Celtics preseason opener told us that the Celtics would be using David Lee as a point forward. With a starting unit that struggled to create good scoring opportunities last year, it wasn't the most exciting news that a 32 year old power forward was going to be counted on to help take this team to the next level. But, as Masslive's Jay King noted last week, Brad Stevens...

Chicago Bulls: Hoiberg era off to a good start

Even though it was just a pre-season game and they didn’t look as sharp as they could, the Chicago Bulls gave signs that they are going to be a team to reckon with under new head coach Fred Hoiberg. The Bulls won 105-95 in their preseason opener against the Bucks, and the most surprising statistic to come from the game: the Bulls put up 39 three point attempts. Yes, 39. Under Thibodeau...

Nuggets' short-term issues have long-term solutions

Here are a few random observations from the first NBA game at American Airlines Center in almost six months after a tumultuous offseason. The energy in the arena was non-existent and the Mavericks and the Nuggets had nothing to play for, but it was still fun to watch NBA basketball in person. The one thing TV cameras don't capture very well is the length and breadth of the floor...

The tide has completely turned on Derrick Rose.

There are many what-ifs when it comes to professional sports. In the 2004 NBA Draft the Denver Nuggets selected point guard Jameer Nelson out of Saint Joseph’s, but promptly traded him to the Orlando Magic. The Nuggets already had a point guard duo of Andre Miller and Earl Boykins, and had no use for Nelson at that time. We’ll never know what Nelson’s career path would have...
