    The Heat is on, ECF here we come!

    Help me out here. Watching that zone defense video after having read about the Raptor's series - all I kept seeing were 3-second violations by Bam. I understand it's ok if he's defending a player within arm's length, but...are my eyes lying?

    9/17 - Celtics vs. Heat, Eastern Conferences Finals Game 2

    The better team has won both games. Hopefully the Celtics are the better team on Saturday.

    Celtics vs. Heat Game 1 ECF

    Watched Game 7 again and noticed how well behaved Nurse was, including how much of the game he spent actually sitting in his chair. I wonder if he wasn't spoken to after the previous histrionics.

    Celtics-Raptors Game 7--Whatever It Takes

    My concern: Ibaka > Williams, Powell > Semi, Mason > Wanamaker. Or somethIng like that.

    Celtics look gassed to you?

    Celtics-Raptors 2nd Round--Dethrone the Champs

    As long as the coach stays between the substitution box and the baseline, he's OK. That (I assume) does not include the actual court, although coaches seem to get away with that. The rule excerpt that governs here is pretty squeezy: "Any club personnel not seated on the bench must conduct...

    Celtics-Raptors 2nd Round--Dethrone the Champs

    Perhaps better in his thread than the Game Thread: For those not tuned in to Sports Boston. Two articles on how the Raptors cheat the 3-second rule: Are Raptors exploiting an NBA rules loophole with defense vs. Celtics? Raptors' defensive cheat code is Game 6 key

    9/9 C’s vs Raps Game 6

    I try never to blame officiating. But this game. I’m beside myself. Refs 1 / Celtics 0. Someone important needs to call them out for what they are.

    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    \nitpick\ Is there any chance we can ever refer to him as Williams? \nitpick\ Or Boo Butt?

    9/5--Celts vs Raptors

    Enough with the Game 3 bullshit. Either a team is good enough to win best of 7 or its not.

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    Am I the only one that finds Doris Burke insufferable during these playoffs? I mean, it's not going to ruin any game for me, but (a) she never shuts up and (b) there's an enormous amount of, "Do you know there's a game going on?" running through my brain while watching. Things like...wouldn't...

    Soup Goes to Nam

    Was down in Winter Haven in '77 and walking down the entrance road back into town, a car stopped alongside and asked if I needed a lift. Got in. It was Campbell. We talked about music the whole ride back to the Holiday Inn. What a great guy.

    Reserving Judgment... But What Did the Sox Do and How Bad Will They Get Hit?

    The video reaction seems like a twitch when it comes to sign-sequencing. Anyone could be watching on television, figuring out the sequences and calling a pal near the dugout to update him. This makes no sense at all when every team should just be switching things up to end that possibility. I'm...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Can someone please explain to me the framework? The way I see it is that the Dodgers traded Maeda for Graterol. Then the Dodgers traded Graterol to the Red Sox as part of a Betts/Price package. Graterol was a Dodger for 1/10 of a second. Objectively, the Red Sox complaint is with the Dodgers...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    I'm of one mind now. This works if the Red Sox use the tax reset and savings to re-sign Betts to a market-value mega deal in 2021. If not - they can go fuck themselves. Sports doesn't always have to be about money...and team loyalty/geography and competitiveness is sure as hell stronger than the...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    This whole fiasco only works out if the Red Sox look at things that way and re-sign him as a free agent for something less than 10/525 (assuming the calc is correct - even so, the point remains) . Only then does the financial equation work for me. Out-bid all comers by offering a Trout-like...

    Emotional Rescue: or How I Learned to Love the Sox After They Traded Mookie

    Stick with the facts. The Red Sox are attempting to get under the cap and also get something back for a guy who's going to enter FA at the end of this season. There's nothing anywhere that assumes they won't make a concerted effort to re-sign him in 2021 (without the penalties associated...

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    It's going to be one of those years. Sox re-build. Milwaukee/Lakers. Pats possibly without Brady. Time to enjoy sports for being sports.
