Celtics Keep Rolling

paul pierce onthebuzzer.comThe Boston Celtics went on a west coast swing and well, their tear continues. Sure their first two games were against the Sacramento Kings and the Seattle Sonics. But they beat the Kirilenko-less Utah Jazz on Saturday night and will face the yellow-hot Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday. OK, maybe this wasn’t the best example of talent representing the west coast. And maybe we won’t know how legit they are until they face the Spurs, Mavericks and Suns. But the Celts have won all but 1 game in the month of December. They have the best record in the league. You can’t help but feel good for the trio of Pierce, Allen and of course, KG. Wise man once said, “it’s a good time to be a Bostonian.”

Houston: We’ve Got Problems

Allan Houston, formerly of the New York Knicks, has decided to make a comeback at the age of 36. According to his agent, he is 90-95% sure he wants to return to the NBA this season. Houston hasn’t played a full season since th 2002-’03 season. GMs around the league are lining up around the block to see what he has left in the tank… NOT!!! However, the Mavericks and the Cavaliers have shown interest in the former shooting guard. I’m not sure why he want’s to return to the NBA when he had a cushy gig as an NBA analyst for ESPN. He certainly doesn’t need the money after robbing the Knicks of nearly $100 million. I know, he must have been inspired by that of Charles Oakley. I hear that Anthony Mason is looking to make a comeback too. Unfortunately , the Knicks’ brass has rejected Houston’s request for a personal workout, stating “there’s only room for one high top fade in NY.”
