I might be the only one, but right now Mike Napoli reminds me of Jack Parkman from Major League II. The power is definitely there.

Reader E-Mail

Saturday night around 7:00 I got an e-mail titled "Glass House". It said the following: "This year we will see if not having a solid point guard consitantly effects the green that is the reason...

Boston Celtics on NBA TV

I just stumbled upon NBA TV's Real Training Camp. You can head over to NBA TV right now for my man Rick Kamla and Cedric Maxwell holding it down. This episode just started at 8:00 Eastern Time,...

Training Camp

The Celtics are several days into training camp and to be honest I'm not that into it. I guess if I were interviewing players like Seth at Posting and Toasting it would be a different story. Don't...

Jamaal Tinsley Traded to Denver?

Earlier today Peter Vecsey reported that Jamaal Tinsley was on his way to Denver, pending a physical. Mike Wells says that is not the case. While I like the idea of Vecsey being wrong as much as...

Boston Celtics Links - 10/1/08

- I vaguely recall Darius Miles being strongly associated with Baskin-Robbins in a negative way. In light of that I grinned slightly when I read the title of Mark Murphy's article today. And even...

Media Day Pictures

+

Check out the Globe's media day pics. I get a kick out of all of these because they're inherently goofy. Fog, staring off into space , it's all there. You don't see that too much nowadays. Also, I enjoyed KG's cue card because his name, the part he knows the best, is highlighted above all else. It's the little things.

Boston Celtics Links - 9/30/08

- Marc J. Spears explains that Paul Pierce is now a part of high-Level NBA discussions. He's up there with Duncan, Wade, Nash, Kobe, LeBron, and of course KG. I'd put Dirk there as well. Meanwhile,...

Boston Celtics Re-sign Sam Cassell

I would have loved to make it down to media day. Unfortunately I'm way too busy right now. And oh yeah I'm not really media. Damn. However, the biggest news of the day has to be Sam Cassell's deal....

Happy Boston Celtics Media Day

Tomorrow is September 29th and that can only mean one thing - Boston Celtics Media Day. All I ask is that no one pulls any crap like this. I don't even like linking to that guy. More to come as...

Kevin Garnett: Rested and Ready to Go

Over the course of the off-season I've been somewhat nervous about Celtics stories floating around the Internet. Kevin Garnett went a week without sleep. Paul Pierce was cuffed by Vegas police and...

Earlier I linked to SLC Dunk for its interview with Mark Eaton. In the comments section there I asked if anyone remembered a commercial where Eaton spoke out against domestic violence. As I said there I once tried to reenact the commercial in 6th grade. I stood on a chair. Everyone was confused. Thankfully basketballjohn knew what I was talking about. Enjoy:
