Pro wrestling is fake. It is as fake as Game of Thrones and The Godfather and Les Misérables and every other form of non-reality entertainment.
Every pro wrestling fan over the age of 10 understands this, and still you can’t bring up wrestling in mixed company without somebody asking, “You know it’s fake, right?” like they’re doing you a favor. Read More »
Wouldn’t it be nice to take a look around at your NBA team, take the best pieces of that team, and then just transplant those pieces into the franchise of your choosing?

Earlier this week, LeBron James sat down for a one-on-one with Ahmad Rashad (aka the Larry King of sports journalism), and in a revelation that came as a shock to absolutely no one who’s been paying attention for the past few years, he named Paul Pierce as his biggest rival. Read More »
Maybe it’s because he’s only 13-12 in the playoffs against the Truth, or maybe it’s because every time they match up in the postseason, it ends memorably.

At this point in the offseason, we may not know what will happen with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, but one thing has been confirmed by Boston GM Danny Ainge: Doc Rivers will be coaching the Celtics next season. Read More »
When the Boston Celtics were dispatched by the New York Knicks in the first round of this year’s NBA Playoffs, to many it seemed pretty clear that it officially signaled the end of Boston’s run with their core players. The Celtics looked old, slow and were generally outmatched against the Knicks – something clearly needs to be done to make them competitive in the near future and beyond.
That “something” starts with their two aging superstars, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Right down to this season’s trade deadline Boston apparently considered trading Pierce and/or KG to various teams, so we know that the seeds of reality are there.
Now we get the rumor that Pierce himself doesn’t think he will be back in green and white next season, from a Celtics employee no less. Read More »
