Oh please, please, please! Let Shaq do to the Celts what he did to Phx & Cle. Just thinking about it makes me happy.

Staples could host next few NBA drafts


The NBA knows where the center of the basketball universe is. Back-to-back with revenge on top. Sweet!

Your guide to hating the Celtics-Ted Green L A Times:


I really enjoyed this article. It does a great job explaining why I hate the Big Green, . . . well you know. Celticsblog is all aghast that it referenced Pierce getting stabbed. I Checked the links post and didn't see it. (Feel free to delete this if it was already posted earlier.)

Spurs' Gregg Popovich rethinks Pau Gasol deal


"They gave up a great player but it helped them extend the franchise's success into the future," Popovich said. "It's shown that they've done a good job. Whatever they were thinking a couple of iterations ahead at the time has paid off for them."

ESPN>Jazz D-League call up hits game winner vs Cavs


Jazz rookie, Sundiata Gaines, on 10-day contract and just called up from D-League last Thursday hits game winning 3 pointer vs. Cavs. Game also included: - D Williams leaves in 4th with re injured wrist - Cav's go on 11-1 run & LeBron scores 20 in 4th qtr in Cavs almost comeback - Sundiata Gaines hits last second 3-pointer to win the game for Jazz Check video next to article. Best part was TNT postgame showed a clip of his D-league team somewhere in Idaho. The coach called the team together for a surprise announcement so the Jazz scout could tell Gaines he's now playing for the Jazz. Then they showed him calling his (obviously excited) mom to tell her. (Yes I know it means the Jazz won but it is hard not to feel happy for the kid.) Oh, and the Celts lost to the Bulls in Boston and that's always a good time.
