MALE

About Me: Lifelong Celtic fan. Born in Portland, Maine. Lived in LA for far too long but escaped in 1994 first to Minnesota, came to my senses, and now on the Big Island of Hawaii since 2002. Met Bill Russell as a young kid after game 1 of the 1969 Finals. Of course a big fan of all the big names such as Russell, Havlicek, Bird, Pierce, KG, etc. but also fondly remember some of the not so well known role players such as Em Bryant, Larry Siegfried, Don Nelson, Steve Kuberski and on down the line... Looking forward to a great playoff season this year--2009. Aloha!

    Kobe has slipped as time the conqueror edges ever closer to claim his victory. This season, should there be one, will see a changing of the guard. On a side note, where was our Brian Cardinal in the M more »

    Very encouraged with JGreen's play in game 3. Hoping it's the start of his increased impact in the playoffs. We can all see the potential on both sides of the ball. His dunk on the pass from Pierce wa more »
