Hopefully this becomes a trend among other teams and basketball can resemble more of the baseball team farm structure-- I don't think we will see affiliate teams in 3 different farm leagues (A, AA, AAA), but to at least have full affiliations and not split affiliations will be nice. Being from Maine (and now living in Boston), I was little bit embarrassed at the fact that all of the mascot possibilities revolved around lobsters, but I think the logo works pretty well and I'm fairly happy with the name Red Claws after it's had a chance to settle. The big question: what on earth will their jerseys look like?!?!? http://loscy.wordpress.com/

Besides, he tends to hold onto the ball too much. He's pretty much the anti "set-play" guy-- loves making things up on the fly. I think he is looking for a team where he can be the play-maker... not in the sense that he wants to take every big shot, but he wants the ball in his possession when it counts and make something happen. If people think Rondo's incessant dribbling drives them crazy, Hedo would only exasperated that. I think Portland would be a good fit... Crap, Dallas would even be a decent fit. It'd be great if he went to NJ.

I'm already starting to choke on my own vomit thinking about all of the pre-game antics that Lebron and now Shaq will create... What's worse than this? Mo Williams is going to continue to think that he is better than he really is. With Shaq and Lebron in his corner, the little engine that could is going to really own the part of playing the little sidekick to the big bad bully. God help me now...

Of course it is, but if the front office doesn't have any intention of re-upping Rondo, then they will give him the kick in the ass in any way shape or form. If the kick in the ass has been happening behind closed doors, which is seemingly beginning to come out a bit, then maybe this is their next step. Perhaps Danny and Wyc want the chance to a max contract guy in 2010. Unfortunately, if Pierce picks up his option and with KG still around, they can't resign Ray for anything remotely near what he earns now... meaning the next valuable piece is Rondo. Resigning Rondo leaves no possibility for a max contract guy. Rondo is the piece that they are going to wait on... So maybe this public ass spanking is their last attempt to get him to focus night in and night out, and to play every game like his next paycheck depends on it... which it may very well. And yes, Shaq is a douche. Always has been.

Come on. Look at where Danny’s tenure landed us in 2008: a freakin’ title! Granted there were some side steps along the way, but if you look at the complete picture since 2003 and it all culminated to gutting a team, rebuilding a team, changing the philosophy of the team, and winning a title in 5 years. 5 years. That is incredible. My comment from a previous post, but worth bringing up again (I also believe something is brewing for tonight: whether or not it happens, who knows, but some crazy stuff around the league might be going down tonight): — Look, I love Rondo more than any of you. But here’s a crazy idea: if Ainge and management don’t have any intentions of signing Rondo after 09/10, then they can shop his name around as much as they want just to test the waters…if he can get something crazy because a team is willing to get a young, cheap player, then maybe Danny takes the offer. Ainge and Doc start leaking little things to the press and rumors start flying about potentially moving Rondo, which clearly will upset him and his agent. Rondo is obviously the type of guy that will move elsewhere not only for the money but to a place where he is wanted and he feels he is trusted. Rondo then goes into this season knowing he is going to move on after 09/10— meaning he is in a contract year. In a contract year, for a cocky guy that knows he’s worth some money in this league, he will play out of his mind and do whatever he can to boost his real estate even more— another title, phenomenal play, etc. If he boosts his resume even more, he’ll get an even bigger payday. Maybe, just maybe, this is the kick in the ass Ainge wants to give Rondo to make him focus, play night in and night out, which is what Ainge’s biggest problem with Rondo and where Danny feels he needs to mature. And maybe after next year they’ll think about making him an offer, but that might be too little too late… But then again, maybe Ainge only sees Rondo has part of the picture for 2009 and no more. As much as I love Rondo, I’d rather see banner #18 raised than #9 handling the ball.

The Bucks know they have no chance this year-- they'll get the chance to play some of their younger players (J Alexander, Ramon Sessions...) and free up some money. The Spurs just made the West THAT much more interesting. Assuming they can stay healthy, we are looking at one hell of a WCF matchup between the Lake Show and the Spurs. Sounds like a great trade for both teams.

Then you should reply to the post and not my thread of comments, knucklehead. Anyway, how could they not post about the rumor? They're trying to give you an idea of what's happening this off-season. They'll report everything because we want to read about it.

Have ya'll seen the incredibly AWKWARD segment on the JImmy Kimmel show with Ariza, Pau, Kobe, and Fisher? Fisher is the only normal one. http://loscy.wordpress.com/2009/06/22/awkward-turtle/

I feel especially lucky because I got a shout out about the "Our Guy" clause-- our guys can do whatever they want because they are on our team-- they're our guys. But when someone else does something stupid, we just pounce. It's part of sports.

BigMck-- seriously. I just exerted all of my morning's worth of energy just to try to string together words, let alone sentences. Maybe, just maybe, I can do a guest post about the simple rules of grammar. You know... complete sentences, nouns, verbs, direct/indirect objects. At some point, we can move onto adverbs, gerund phrase... wait, we may be getting ahead of ourselves.

I do agree with almost everything you said... the trash talking is just for fun. But I don't always think the better teams. Even just recently, what do you say about 2006 Miami/Dallas series? A ref blew this series.

"we the better city"? You're missing a verb in there. Hmmm. Do you know what a verb is? Or a fragment? An incomplete sentence? You must have been sipping your pina colada at the beach they day your school taught about these minor grammatical nuances. Anyways, I'd rather be in Boston freezing (and yes, it does get freakin' cold here) than in a bankrupt city. I guess it's all about trade-offs...

Shaq is pretty coveted right now, though. A big man with a post-season resume and with a $20 million expiring contract. Lots of teams want this that COULD make a run this season but also want to unload $20 million to free it up for the 2010 sweepstakes. If the Suns were smart, they'd deal him this off-season to make a run this season.

Can you read, dude? It asked how many titles the city of LA has one, not the Lakers. Can any of you Lakers fans read??

It's why we're fans. I am sure that we are all perfectly nice human beings. But the Celtics are just a better organization.

You: "Kobe has been with Nike for awhile too.. Don't you think he was sponsoring Nike also?" I'm pretty sure Kobe isn't sponsoring Nike. I know Kobe makes a lot of money, but I'm pretty sure for the folks over at Nike are sponsoring him. Semantics, I know. Do you need us to look up that word for you??
1 reply
Yeah, I guess for a city that won 2 world series, 3 super bowls, and 1 NBA title in the last 9 years really makes the city save up their pennies in the piggy bank for a rainy day. How many titles has LA won in the last 9 years? Hmmmmmm...

And by the way-- our parade was better. We had duckboats. And we didn't have to face the scrutiny of using money that laid off kindergarten teachers so that Kobe could ride around screaming "Foooooour! Fooooooour!" Our city's not broke.

It's actually Kobe's thong, but whatever. Anyway, why don't you go spend more time looking for pictures where Pau looks cool... oh wait, I did the legwork for you: http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images/pic/PHOTOFILE/AADL038~Pau-Gasol-NBA-Rookie-of-the-Year-Photofile-Posters.jpg http://thesportsunion.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/pau-gasol.jpg http://www.igooh.com/uc/in/9500.jpg and the winner of them all: http://www.midwestsportsfans.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/pau-gasol.jpg
