What the Sam Cassell is going on these days? Fans around Boston are going nuts about a little .500 stretch over the past couple of weeks… and John Hollinger is wondering out loud about the Spurs ending up in the lottery…. IN THE LOTTERY!
Hey Hollinger… put down the crazy juice and step away from the computer. In fact… everyone needs to take a hit from Bill Walton’s pipe, have a couple of Twinkies, and mellow the hell out. If the first part of the season was the Celtics version of going NBA Live on the league… then January is the part where our thumbs got tired. We’ve got the Heat tonight… who I think we can still handle even though it looks like KG is still out. What we really care about is KG being ready for Thursday night’s Dallas game. After we lay the wood on the Mavs (who won’t have Devin Harris) then everyone can stand tall again and recognize that we’re still awesome.

And remember that exchange between KG and Al Jefferson that resulted in double techs the other night? Seems like it was a good one:
When Kevin Garnett emphatically reminded Jefferson of his all-star selections – “11 years! 11 years!” – Jefferson replied with something that Garnett couldn’t top.
“I told him we both have one thing in common – no championships,” Jefferson said. “He didn’t like that too much.”
Ouch. Good comeback, though. Might as well get that in while he can.
