First, Doc Rivers announced that Kevin Garnett is likely gone for the playoffs, then we learn that Danny Ainge suffered a heart attack. I’d like to say I’m one of those who somehow believes they can still pull this off based on the strength of “heart” and “intangibles,” but I’m truly one of the masses who is waving good-bye to any sort of chance at a repeat.

Red seemed to have some doubts of his own, “In this age of Photoshop, space cars and celery-powered pajamas, I honestly can't tell if this is true or part of some conspiracy to take down whoever's funding all those [expletive] Tyler Perry movies.” Seems he might have been on target, as the original link no longer works. So, is Mirabelli really selling houses? And if so, is there any way in the name of all things holy we can get him on “House Hunters?”
Paul Pierce does not approve.
