Josh Smith calls Kenneth Faried a clown

You're not making yourself look any better, J-SMOOVE. Josh Smith shot the Detroit Pistons out of the game in their opener against the Denver Nuggets. Kenneth Faried, who was matched up with Smith for much of the night, noted this in his post-game interview. Should he have said that? Maybe not, but he wasn't necessarily wrong. Smith was asked about Faried's comments before Thursday night's game in Minnesota. Smith seemingly lost his cool: "I don't respond to nobody that has dreadlocks and plays basketball," Smith said. "I don't respond to people like that. The man's a clown, man. Quote me...

The Boston Celtics are developing into an impressive offensive force

It's still early, but the Celtics offense sure looked impressive in the season opener against the Brooklyn Nets. The Boston Celtics have the highest scoring offense in the league! Ok, so it's only been one game. We can also get excited about the Celtics being tied for the top seed in the East, but that ignores a few simple caveats, such as the other 81 games left to play or the fact that a certain super team from Cleveland has yet to take the court this season. Nonetheless, there are several reasons to be optimistic about how this offense is developing after the Celtics put up 121 points to...
