    Brian Scalabrine is Better at Basketball Than You

    RE: Punting. The speed at which the lineman will reach you would astonish most people here. Personal anecdote: I was on a business trip once to Sophia Antipolis, which is just north of Nice in France. Got to my hotel, and had some time to wander the grounds, as it was a nice December day...

    Brian Scalabrine is Better at Basketball Than You

    Curling. Not because I could do it; it just seems like a sport I could do without getting killed or maimed in the first 5 seconds of play.

    Pats QB Options

    Well, they haven't actually traded down; so far, the rumors of the Dolphins trading down are just pure speculation. I don't think they are thinking for a minute how such an action impacts other teams.

    Tremont Waters is Bad

    #4 applies to 29 other NBA teams as well. The 2-way slots are mostly development slots for the future, which was their intention when they were added to the CBA. Hard to classify any player in a 2-way slot as a "mistake".

    RIP Johnny Pierson

    I saw the sad news posted in the April News thread by @ColdSoxPack , but I thought Pierson's passing was thread worthy in its own right. I grew up watching Fred and Johnny doing the telecasts on WSBK, TV-38. And then in the studios when Derek Sanderson moved to man the color mike. My dad...

    Celtics sign Jabari Parker

    I agree that it's way too early to write off Romeo Langford long term. He still shows flashes of why the Celtics brass are high on his prospects. There is definitely some overreaction to a a couple of bad games on a road trip in Romeo's case. However, it's unclear how much impact he can have...

    Celtics sign Jabari Parker

    Sure, if he's able to crack the top 12, he's definitely an upgrade over Wagner. Maybe it works; maybe it doesn't. If it doesn't, they didn't exactly give up anything.

    Celtics sign Jabari Parker

    +1. He'll be occupying the 15th roster spot. He's probably league average for a player in the 15th roster spot. I do not understand the angst.

    Pats Roster Planning: Defense

    Except there would be little reason to do that. As an asset, he is still far more valuable than a 3rd round pick.

    Pats Roster Planning: Defense

    Yes, if they wanted to. He would be UFA next season unless he signs an extension, and the Pats are not going to trade him for anything less than a 2nd round pick, so it seems unlikely he would be traded.

    Tremont Waters is Bad

    Waters is standard level for the 17th player on NBA roster. In a normal year, he would have been in Maine last night.
