    Who are you?

    Just taking a moment to engage in a bit of frivolous fandom. With a nod to Barbara Walters and her "if you were a tree, what tree would you be" question... So in another thread I mentioned that if I were overnight transformed into a 20 year old basketball player with elite athleticism and a...

    Superstars: How to turn a star into a superstar

    This topic could really go on any number of places on SoSH. How do you grow a superstar capable individual into an actual successful superstar? Could be in business, in sports, anywhere really. Clearly this thread is inspired by Kyrie - who by all accounts is a top X basketball player in the...

    What NBA team is your guilty pleasure, and why?

    Maybe not guilty pleasure, but after your favorite team is there another team that you enjoy watching more than others? Maybe it's style of play, maybe it is simply one player, maybe it is team defense, maybe it's the alternate jerseys... One from the past and one from today please. Mine: For...

    ESPN: Tiny Archibald Story

    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/22496575/nba-how-tiny-archibald-dire-diagnosis-impacts-future-health-nba-stars Didn't know where else to put this. I loved watching him play the admittedly small amount I was able to.

    Indelible or Favorite Moment in Boston Sports?

    I was daydreaming a bit yesterday and asked myself what moment around the Red Sox was my most memorable moment, and then Boston sports in general, but then my mind continued wandering and ended up at "the favorite moment which wasn't a specific play in a game." So for example, the snow plow...

    Fast forward to legitimate title contention...

    Maybe it is too early, and I'm not skipping the rest of the playoffs, but that said... It's easy to say this player or that player should be gone, I decided to actually look at what I think the Celtics roster could/should look like when they are next ready to challenge for a championship. I've...

    Is something amiss with Amir?

    Serious question for those who actually know the game. GM 2: 9 minutes, w/ 2 offensive rebounds and 4 points. GM 1: 18 minutes w/ 4 rebounds (3 offensive) and 5 points. Is it just matchups or is he hiding an injury or is he cooked against athletes? I'm seeing him stand around, watching...

    WIFI / Router / Bridge? question

    Here's the scenario... I have a mobile setup, including a couple of wifi printers/devices that are critical to what I am doing. In order to make things convenient I carry a basic [DLink or LinkSys] router (call it the RR router) that my laptop uses to talk to them. So far so good. What...

    Assessment of Claude Julien's Development Machine

    I've decided to look at what is really happening with respect to player development under Claude Julien.  I know this is subjective, but it's my attempt to actually quantify what I've been seeing.  Posters often say "It's been repeatedly debunked that he doesn't develop younger players" but I've...

    Who deserves the gold glove in CF?

    Maybe this deserves a separate discussion...   At this point who deserves the gold glove in CF?  Is he delivering beyond expectations defensively?  Adam Jones has the reputation... but a lot of the numbers certainly point to Bradley as the best defensive CF in the league.  I knew his numbers...

    Portable Wifi Network???

    Problem set: I need a way to have a PC (or 2) communicate with each other in an area with no cell service.  I'd going to try to put either a simple product order app (or messenger like app if necessary) in place.  Ideally I'd like to be able to have a tablet using the order app, and a couple of...
