    The C's will have cap space.  I could see DA taking a shot at a Jordan, Asik or a Mozgov to platoon with Zeller at the 5 and then using the draft picks on the best players available, maybe a SF/PF.  S more »

    Harvin already got his ring with Seattle.  I am thinking money probably means more to him at this point.  Does anyone else think that Amendola could probably make more more $ after his restructure in more »

    Mike Reiss should leave ESPN.  Certianly he could find employment somewhere else where objectivity and facts are valued.  He's torn between being the ESPN Boston guy and working for a network that has more »

    Sounds like the Colts needed an excuse to fail.  BB is inside the head of everyone in that orgainisation.  Everyone knew going into the Colts game (Colts included) that it could get ugly.  And it did. more »

    I can live with that.  In response to BCSP's comment: Adrian Wojnarowski @WojYahooNBA · 18s 18 seconds ago For Isaiah Thomas, Boston will send Marcus Thornton and a 2016 first-round pick via Cleveland more »

    This is still the headline on ESPN: Patriots locker room attendant tried to put unapproved ball into AFC final I hope that ESPN retraction comes with an apology.  Kelly Naqi and her sources had the st more »

    I don't see how Dragic fits this team at this point.  They aren't good enough to legitimatley contend, and by the time they are he'll be in his early 30's -- assuming they could even get him to re-sig more »

    Wow, the NFL has no credibility, and all of the swooping media buzzards who were so ready to declare the Patriots guilty without the facts look as bad as the NFL. more »

    Posted 02/17/2015 09:06:59 EST

    I would take Mankins back in a heartbeat -- assuming he has anything left in the tank.  I don't fault him for taking a hard line stance re: his contract.  That's old news.  He's seen what it's like to more »

    I think Cauley-Stein would be a good get as a rebounder and shot blocker and he and Zeller would be a nice combo at the 5.  That way Sullinger can stay at the 4 and Olynyk can come off the bench at th more »

    In response to ktronic's comment: I looked at his numbers and I have watched him play. Maybe you need to lower your expectations a bit. He's a 20 year old rookie Point guard and yes, he has work to do more »

    I see flashes from Smart as a player.  Whatever he ends up being, it's probably not a pure PG though.  There's a lot of promise, he will get better, this is year 1 and he does a number of things well. more »

    I have watched the play at least 100 times from every conceivable angle.  Great effort by Browner and Butler.  If you look at when Wilson threw the ball, you realise that Butler had to make a perfect more »

    I'm excited to see what an offseason will do for Easley.  Looks like he may be able to play DT and DE, giving BB some versatility there.  I saw enough from him to think that another offseason to rehab more »

    The first Brady INT was inexcusable - they should have finished that drive with 3 points minimum.  Brady threw it with three Seattle defenders in the end zone.  Why force it when it's not there?  (And more »

    Re: Arrington, he has his strengths, and covering a 6'5" guy on the perimeter isn't one of them.  Glad the adjustment to use Browner was made.
