Will Celtics get LeBron the beast or LeBron the quitter?

We’ve been here before with LeBron. In the 2012 playoffs, LeBron’s Heat had lost the first two games they played at TD Garden and the Celtics had done a good job of at least containing the best player in basketball early in the series. Then, in Game 6 – he went off. LeBron shot...

Are the Celtics about to go down in flames?

Maybe, just maybe the Celtics are about to show their age and go down in flames in this series. I just doubt it. Game 3 of this series was very predictable. OK, fine. A 30-point loss was a bit much. But NBA history strongly suggested that LeBron James wasn’t going to lose a Game 3 at home...

NFL rumors Dez Bryant Redskins: A deal close?

Remember all that buzz about Dez Bryant potentially signing with an NFC East team not named the Cowboys a month ago after he was released? Well, that buzz is now deader than Kristen Stewart’s eyes. Bryant has only been offered a contract by one team – the Baltimore Ravens – and...

LeBron likely to quit down 0-2, mentally onto Lakers?

In his NBA postseason career, LeBron James has been the king of the split as most of his less-talented teams have at least won one of two in the first two games in a series. LeBron helped fuel the Cavaliers' phenomenal comeback in the 2016 NBA Finals against Golden State, a series in which the...
