Boston has a 20-2 record going into this season.
I don't think anyone expected this, we have a long way to go.
San Antonio will probably take it all again.


that's the final Celtics vs Spurs

LeBron James became the youngest player in NBA history to score 9,000 career points in helping the Cleveland Cavaliers edge the Milwaukee Bucks 104-99 in double overtime.
The 22-year-old registered 31 points to boost his career total to 9,028, passing the milestone a year-and-a-half younger than Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers



That's one impression feat that LeBron James has come up with, to be a year and a half quicker than Kobe is something else and if he carries on at that rate he'll challenge the Michael Jordan mark you'd feel.


I think Jabbar is leading in career points with something like 38,000. Lebron has a chance since he started so early.

That Jabber mark is incredinly impressive, but maybe just maybe with LeBron James only being 22 and starting his career incredibly early he may one day challenge that if he keeps injury free and on top of his game.

It was a typcial chop suey flick which had Lee fighting through a variety of bad guy henchmen to get the to the big boss. I think Jabbar was the last one before getting to the top. 7' 1" or whatever he was against the diminutive Bruce Lee.
Lee, of course, chopped him down to size.  :))

Kobe Becomes Yongest to 20,000!!!  :)

At 29 years, 122 days old, Kobe is now the youngest player ever to reach 20,000 career points. On Sunday afternoon at MSG, he scored 39 points to get there.

New York 90 - LA Lakers 95
6:00  Detroit vs Houston
        Cleveland vs Golden State
6:30 Boston vs Orlando
9:00 Sacramento vs Denver

Well done to Kobe! Amazing achievement for him. Kobe is always a name I've known because he is such a glabal star, even though he has had a lot of controversy in his career both away and with basketball.

Boston won again, where did they come from. I guess Garnett made quite a difference.

For the first time since 1999, four Celtics players, including Kevin Garnett, scored in double figures in one game as Boston avenged an earlier defeat to Orlando. Garnett 21, Pierce 20, Allen 19, Rondo 19. Boston 22-3 :cool:

Wasn't just Garnett. It's adding Garnett, Ray Allan and keeping Paul Pierce whoo is still a very good talent. 3 potential, or lock hall of famers on the same team. That just doesn't happen much in today's NBA. Add that by all accounts all 3 have taken a team first attitude, and some bit players added who have made a good contribution and they've got a good team.
Truthfully I didn't think it was possible for this to have happened. When Ainge took over the franchise they were deep in salary cap hell. They were way over the cap, and commited to top dollar players long term. They had played in a Eastern confrence championship series and lost, and were making another run when Ainge took over. Instead of standing pat, he started to gut the team and change the philosophy of the team. He kept making trades and good draft picks, but he made strange player trades that just didn't seem to help, and, while he had drafted a nucleous of you good talent it was going to be a long time before they would gel into a good team, if ever. Ainge kept saying he was stocking up young talent to trade, but no one thought anything was available to trade for and the locals started to fall in love with the young talent, like Delonte West and Al Harrington. Then this season Ainge traded nearly all the young talent for these veteran superstars, and suddenly they are not only relevant again, they are very close to being an elite team. Not just good enough to compete for a Eastern confrence crown, but an NBA title.
He went from being the GM most likely to be run out of town to the GM most likely to be voted mayor of Boston (if not Governer of Mass).

me and my friends bought tickets to the celtics knicks game in january (i think the 21st) before we realized what a joke the knicks were going to be this year. There was all this hype cuz of randolf (sp?) but the team (not surprisingly) dissapointed all of us once again. Well lets just hope that the knicks are at least mad at their previous loss and at least make it a contest

I don't think the knicks are going anywhere for a long time. Their numbers are very bad so it's coming from a number of things. Hard to fix problems like that in the short run. If you're a knicks fan I hope the best for you but it doesn't look good. They can have a good game once in awhile however.
