NBA Mock Draft Jun27

NBA Mock Draft

The Finals are over, and professional basketball is curling up for its annual summer-long nap on a pile of money stacked up in the corner of some luxury suite somewhere.  For most people, this means the NBA is will be disappearing for the next three months, but for a select slew of diehards...

Larry Bird Highlights: Chicken Soup for the Celtic Fan’s Soul Jun12

Larry Bird Highlights: Chicken Soup for the Celtic...

Robert Parish was on WEEI’s Big Show yesterday afternoon.  Ordway, Holley, Maxwell, and Parish were reminiscing about the 80s Celtics and it got me feeling nostalgic. So, I went looking for some old highlights and stumbled on to this gem from LarryBirdCollector.com. Bird was animal – no pun intended.  I love the no-look, backwards overhead passes.  One thing that stood out in watching a bunch of these videos is Bird’s composure.  In game 2 of the 1985 Eastern Conference Finals, Bill Laimbeer hit him in the face on two different plays.  Bird proceeded to pants Laimbeer (metaphorically) for the rest of the game by...

NBA Postseason Blank...

The first round of the playoffs was chock full of enough thick, juicy storylines to fill up even the fattest NBA fan, bringing us such unforgettable shenanigans as Rajon Rondo’s attempt to beat up a ref for his milk money, the atomic explosion of the reigning MVP’s knee joint (along with...

NBA Postseason Blank Rankings

Playoffs?  PLAYOFFS?!  That’s right Jim Mora Senior, you crazy overreacting bastard: we’re talking playoffs – NBA playoffs, to be exact.  And what’s not to like? Ridiculously competitive play!  Frequent “I’m-tougher-than-you-bitch-but-we-both-know-neither-of-us-will-ever-throw-a-punch-so-this-is-a-waste-of-time” stare downs!  Suspiciously poor/biased refereeing!  Players refusing to make use of the little hammer to smash the glass on fire extinguishers!  Daily doses of Sir Charles on TNT babbling in circles for minutes at a time before coming around to a surprisingly poignant point!  It’s the greatest show on...

NBA MVP (…WXYZ): The MVP of MVP Awards Apr17

NBA MVP (…WXYZ): The MVP of MVP Awards

As far as Most Valuable Player awards go, the NBA clearly takes the cake. It takes the cake, and the cookies, and the peanut brittle, and whatever other desserts might be around to nab… I don’t know, maybe some crème brule fruit cups, or something?  A little custard pie?  Use your fucking imagination. Really, though – none of the other MVP awards compare.  The NFL?  Pffff!  Come on.  Wake me up next time it’s not a quarterback.  Odds are I’ll probably be awake already when it happens, but I guess just wait till I pass out and then wake me back up again.  I know Tazmanian Tomlinson won as recently as 2006, but I’d be...
