Although it was made clear he wanted to make some significant money while he still could, there was still a chance Al Horford could’ve been a Celtic had he been informed about one detail. And it’s got nothing to do with the idea of Kyrie Irving coming back to Boston. He expressed to Steve Bullpett...

The NBA’s re-measurements of all its players have yet to come out, so Enes Kanter is still listed at 6-foot-11.

Kemba Walker isn’t his predecessor. There are pros and cons to that. The pro that’s been discussed most has been Walker’s approach with the young guys and his general ability as a leader.

On the whole, the trip to China was a disappointment for everyone on Team USA. That’s not to say the chemistry was bad between certain guys or anything of the sort. Players made sure to squash that on social media. The fact of the matter is they lost. Team USA isn’t supposed to lose, as much as the...
