    FOX Chooses Broadcast Teams For 2024

    In football theoretically this SHOULD be easier, being a once-per-week sport where they are not conflicting with local broadcast announcers. As opposed to baseball or basketball, where you have thirty-some-odd local broadcast teams and you need to extricate a few of these announcers or choose...

    Team USA 2024

    Waiting for the amazed looks of 6'9" guys who go up soft against D White and get their shit rejected. Although maybe with the championship run he'll go from underrated to more properly known/rated.

    The WNBA: Thread II

    Frigging idiots: I ran into some click-baity article just re-hashing tweets complaining about a bunch of WNBA games starting near midday today (how am I going to catch Caitlin Clark at noon!!!). What the author (if it wasn't AI) failed to investigate is that in the Conn Sun's case and most of...

    Team USA 2024

    The problem with forecasting one player as better than another based on athleticism, is that playing above the rim can giveth but then taketh away (injuries). Like the old line 'Jumping isn't tough on your knees, the problem is the landing.' The mention of "ceilings" usually comes with the...

    Top 10 Boston athletes

    As a more casual Bruins fan I could pick out Pasta and Marchand in civilian clothes, but that's where the recognition ends now that Chara and Bergeron are gone. As a connection to the last Stanley Cup, I think Marchie is a top ten-er.

    The WNBA: Thread II

    Strong agree on the balance, but then again I have been a follower of the W since meeting my Connecticut Sun season ticketholder wife around 20 years ago. I would say a strong Clark season followed by a loss in the playoffs to a veteran player/team (Liberty? Sun?) who shows the real depth of...

    Misc. NFL Offseason News

    That's one reason why I was always told 'nothing good happens after midnight.' Even if you yourself are simply minding your business, a high proportion of folks you encounter on the road are not in great shape at 3am. Whether by substances, exhaustion, etc. Sad story, hope his family can get...

    Wyc ownership group planning to make Celtics available for sale

    I don't disagree with you. I should clarify that chances are if he makes that few appearances, it's not due to load management and if the injuries are that serious/numerous you tend not to be able to just get healthier or play a higher proportion of games during the playoffs.

    Wyc ownership group planning to make Celtics available for sale

    But at least the front office and ownership are lining up some cost certainty with all the recent extensions, and not leaving tough decisions with the new group. For the most part the team will be working on the margins with respect to financial decisions between now and '28, unless something...

    2024 NBA General Offseason Thread

    To be fair, if he wasn't playing next to a generational player Murray's counting stats (especially assists) would be too high to ignore as an all-star caliber player. The question is whether his team would be good enough in that instance for him to get the votes.

    Shertenlieb Show? Rich Radio? - mornings on ZLX

    Is this confirmed? I know that her primary job is the Oddball (basketball) podcast for Meadowlark Media, and she has been obviously on location with the Celtics Finals run and just appeared on the Le Batard show this morning to report on the NBA draft. If Oddball is on hiatus during part of...

    Celtics draft Anton Watson (Gonzaga F) with 54th pick

    Great use of these 2 picks, one guy has a three and needs to develop on D, the other is great on D and needs to develop a three (good % but only 49 attempts this past season). Whomever gets there first is your rotation player in the future.

    That's why Mavs fans should be thankful Doncic didn't win this time around. I think he'll go FULL Napoli and end his career the day he wins a ring. If you think he's pudgy now...
