10 Ways to get Ray Allen Back on Track

It’s time for my boy Ray Ray to get out of that damn slump. I may not be the biggest Celtics fan, in fact I can’t stand ’em, but I do love Ray Allen. So smooth, so silky, and so sexy! Woo! I hate seeing him struggle like this and I thought I could help out with a nice list of ideas to jump him right out of this nasty little slide. 11. Remind him that he was once Jesus which allowed him to sleep with a young and sassy Rosario Dawson. 10. Remind him to read the Celtics Blog! 9. Remind him that he was #4 on our Pretty Boy List, which is a damn honor. 8. Remind him that just 2 years ago, he hit 269 threes! Wow. 7. Remind him that a skinny #32 with a face mask on the other team actually WON a championship with UConn. 6. Remind him that the owner of that shoe company that sponsors him managed to win 3 titles after the age of 33, so age should not be an excuse. 5. Remind him that shooting jumpers before the game with his shirt off will not help. (Did anyone else see that?) 4. Remind him that the “luck of the irish” can happen by rubbing Doc Rivers belly. 3. Remind him of that some people confuse Allen Ray for him. That should irritate the hell out of him. 2. Remind him that 54 points in a game was just a few years ago. 1. Oh lord…and remind him that he made this video for TNT…about the fundamentals of jump...

What’s Awesome in the NBA: Episode 1

The Jay-z & LeBron talk is everywhere! Jigga/Hova/Sean Carter was even at the NBA Draft Lottery tonight in New York. How awesome is that? The Chicago Bulls and their 2% chance of winning the #1 pick in the draft…actually did it! (Blog A Bull too!) You go Bennie the Bull and beat up another cop! Flat out awesome. Maurice Cheeks of the Sixers is campaigning for Zach “Z-bo” Randolph? Hah! So awesome. Wait, is this true Dannie? Did Charles Barkley actually say that he would quit gambling? Yes he did! Do we believe him? No! Just imagine he and Jordan on the golf course or in a casino. Do you really think MJ is going to let off of Sir Charles? Hah…awesome. Another link. And again. One more. Refs that cheat, gamble and get arrested! So awesome that…nevermind. Go away already...

Quote of the Year: NBA on the Billups Shot

“We determined that the play that concluded with Chauncey Billups’ three-point field goal at the end of the third quarter took approximately 5.7 seconds. Because there were only 5.1 seconds remaining in the quarter when the play began, the shot would not have counted had the clock continued to run.” “But under NBA rules, the referees had to make their own decision as to whether or not the shot was launched in time due to the clock malfunction without using video review or another timing device to aid a split-second call. The referees followed proper procedure in addressing the clock malfunction by estimating the elapsed time and using their judgement as to whether the shot was taken in time.” -Joel Litvin, President of Basketball Operations for the NBA My response: Estimating elapsed time using judgement? Umm…what? They estimated that the play took place in 4.8 seconds or something when in actuality the play was 5.7 seconds long? Very nice estimation guys. Referees aren’t paid to tell time. That is why we have a clock and a replay. Change the damn rules...
