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.”

Gerald Wallace: I am NOT just a Dunker

gerald wallace onthebuzzer.comI was the first to say it “he’s a dunker.” I accused and convicted Bobcats‘ small forward Gerald Wallace without a jury.  Now, I must repent.  After watching this guy blossom over the past few years into a solid player, I’m ready to take away the DUNK tag and replacing it with the PLAYER tag. Wallace started his career with the Sacramento Kings, where he struggled coming off the bench in the Kings’ hay day with Webber and Bibby. Finally after escaping from Sacramento, he went to Charlotte.  Sure Charlotte has sucked for as long as I remember. But this guy is filling up the stat sheet.  19 points, 5 rebounds, 1 blck, 2 steals per game; how ’bout them apples?  Not bad for all you fantasy geeks and better for all you Bobcats geeks. He’s only 25 and worth every penny of that $9.5 million he’s earning this year. As for what have you done for me lately people, Wallace racked up 32 pts, 9 rbds, 8 assts, 2 stls and a block in a loss against the Wizards on Wednesday.  Too bad his teammates suck.  But oh well, seems to be the ongoing saga in Charlotte.
