Despite Rondo’s Game 2 explosion and the Celtics offensive efficiency (they shot nearly 50% from the field), it was clear that coming back home they needed to get back to their roots. Defense. Game 3 was a different Celtics team thanks to a surge in defensive intensity, better bench contribution, and the way they controlled [...]

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 [...]
“I just got caught up with women throwing themselves at me. When a girl sends me 100 pictures, I have to send something back every now and then. I’m not an asshole.”
- Former Blazer Greg Oden in a recent interview, explaining why he sent out the infamous nude picture of himself to a female friend.
In what seems to be a recurring theme, Rondo has once again come up big for the Celtics when they needed it most – recording a near triple double in Boston’s Game 7 win over Philadelphia (18 points, 10 assists, 9 rebounds).
3 votes – Rajon Rondo. He bounced back after a tough night at [...]
This was a pretty weird day of playoff basketball. On one side of the bracket we had a second round matchup of Philly and Boston taking place. While the 4 vs 5 matchup is often a toss of the coin, it’s quite uncommon for a five seed to end up securing home court in the [...]
A weekly wrap of the things you should know in basketball.
* Kanye West caught ogling the New York Knicks’ cheerleaders. Can’t blame him. Not sure Kimmy K would approve though.
* Some dude sitting courtside tries to put two fingers up Marc Gasol’s butt. I’m serious.
* Former NBA string bean and washout, Keith Closs, rocks [...]
Another big day on the playoff calendar, which saw an epic performance on Broadway, and three teams – Atlanta, Chicago and Denver – move to the brink of elimination.
3 votes – Carmelo Anthony. I’ve never liked the guy, but you’ve got to give credit where it’s due – Melo was phenomenal in the second half, [...]
These playoffs are certainly keeping us on our toes so far. Just when it looked like the Bulls were cruising to a 2-1 lead and stranglehold on the series, the 76′ers came storming back. Just when the Lakers looked like they were in control early, the Nuggets went on a 19-0 run and never looked back. And [...]
And you thought Day 1 had drama. Day 2 saw the Clippers pull off one of the most remarkable comebacks in NBA history, Andrew Bynum had a historic night in Los Angeles and Rajon Rondo’s brain snap could see the end of the Celtics. Ah, the NBA playoffs, you gotta love it.
Let’s get to it. [...]
3 votes – Kevin Garnett. Call me crazy, but this might have been KGs best ever game as a Celtic. It was one of his most dominant and complete playoff games ever. He was scoring inside, outside, chasing rebounds like he was in his prime, defending superbly (just look at Bosh’s line), and keyed the [...]
