The mother of all trades

I’ll discuss the draft at some point over the weekend, but there’s one thing I have to talk about first. That is of course the massive Nets-Celtics trade which sent Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to Brooklyn for Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, Kris Joseph, Keith Bogans and three No.1 picks. All […]

LeBron terrorises the Celtics, again

37 points, vicious dunk, game winner. Just another night at the office.

A reminder to Danny Ainge

Remember when you said this, Danny: (Red Auerbach) had a chance to trade Larry [Bird] (to Indiana) for Chuck Person and Herb Williams and (Steve) Stipanovich and he had a chance to trade Kevin [McHale] (to Dallas) for Detlef Schrempf and Sam Perkins. I was like are you kidding? I mean I feel that way […]

Set the Celtics on fire

The recent news that Rajon Rondo has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season is not as big a deal as it may seem in the greater playoff picture this year. With Rondo, the Celtics were a borderline playoff team at best. Without him, they’re almost certain to miss the playoffs […]

Day 41 – Like a Bosh

So the bracket has finally been resolved and we have our two finalists. It’s come as no real surprise that the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder will be the two teams battling it out for the hardware. It’s true, they play the games for a reason, but it was fairly obvious before the […]

Day 40 – Setting the stage for an all-time classic

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. LeBron James is the best damn player in the NBA. The way he commands attention on offense without skipping a beat defensively, is a testament to the hard work that’s gone in to developing this under appreciated and incredibly well balanced superstar. Game 6 was all […]

Day 32 – Unibrow!

I’m not even going to lie. I barely watched a second of Rajon Rondo’s historic night (which was possibly one of the best point guard performances in playoff history). The reason – New Orleans won the lottery and I spent the next 48 hours (and counting) watching highlights, listening to interviews, reading articles, reading scouting […]

Heat vs Celtics ECF Preview

We’re two men down and a bit late getting it up, but it’s playoff time, so you know, ‘no excuses’ and all that crap (I’ve always found this notion to be a bit ridiculous; if you’re hurt you’re hurt, and depending on the player it can absolutely impact the outcome of a game/series – just […]

Second round playoff predictions – East

Round 2 is upon as! Well, at least for the Eastern Conference. Those Los Angeles teams out West just can’t seem to take care of business. For now, here are our thoughts and predictions for the two East series. We’ll be back once the West match ups are finalised. Boston Celtics vs Philadelphia 76′ers JT: […]

Q&A Roundtable: The home stretch

With only a few weeks left in the 2011-2012 season and some teams having as few as 10 games left to play, we’re well and truly on the home stretch. Perfect time then to check in with the NBAMate crew and pick their brains on all the big questions. Q&A stylez. 1. The Heat’s recent […]
