No let downs. Keep it rolling at the Amway. Make Big Baby wish he was still in Green.

I would just like to point out how terrible Brandon Bass has played this season. Hideously awful in every possible way.

Edit: I take it back, he is shooting 89% on Free Throws. Otherwise, the point stands.

David Steele and Matt Guokas have lost their shit. They've decided that the assist is a meaningless statistic.

Did Scal just call Pau Gasol a future hall of famer?

I really disagree. I think he's more more informative and insightful than most of the regulars I've heard around the league.

I think Scal knows a lot of the players still in the league, and has some cool anecdotes, but his feel for when to talk and his delivery so that you can easily understand him, are bad. Just not a good broadcaster yet.

More simply: he talks goofy.

I think he's more knowledgeable than most of these guys, though. He knows what he's talking about, and I think he's pretty good at breaking it down on replays. I learn more from watching when he's on than when Heinsohn's on, that's for sure.

Some of it's novelty and a different perspective, but I think you're right. He reminds me a bit of Bradford doing the Red Sox games a few times. His presentation was a bit goofy too at times, but he brought some good insight at times I wasn't used to getting. Same for Scal.

Bradford blows at broadcasting. The jury is still out on Mr. Scalabrine.

The Celtics are a very good and likable team, but the NBA in general cranks out a tedious, damn-near unwatchable product.

Jeff Green is a terrible defender at the perimeter. That last Reddick three was all his fault.

Maybe so, but they both know their stuff and I'm happy to hear what them have to say. Substance gives them a bigger margin for error on the style side.

Ridiculously bad 4th foul call on Rondo there. Not close to a foul.

Cant lose to this joke of a Magic team, even if its on the road

Jeff Green has to be removed from the game. Not only terrible on offense, but refusing to guard anyone on defense.

And hey Doc....Rondo has 4 fouls, not 6

Looks like they're going to keep hitting these threes, even if it is out of character. How about making it a little harder on them?

The amazing thing about Jeff Green's 20 minute, 1 point, 2 rebound, 1 assist, 0-9 FG stat line..... it doesn't begin to do justice to how poorly he played.

It's like Doc has been trying to make sure everyone gets the feel for what a trap game really is, whether it's necessary or not, and whether they like it or not.

Just get a good shot, don't worry about the time
