Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports Congratulations to the former Spur My daughter was born in new York City. She doesn’t know that because ten days after her birth she was in a car on her way to San Antonio. Point is she’s a Texan and in her mind, it is undisputed. She does not identify as a New Yorker.

That Game 1 loss was a doozy. It felt like the Heat beat the Celtics at their own game and were the more imposing and physical team. The Al Horford situation is brutal timing, yes. Robert Williams and Marcus Smart still aren’t 100 percent. The Derrick White news comes at an inopportune time (how dare he skip the game for happiest moment of his life?) but is more than...

Derrick White’s name probably won’t be mentioned much as players, analysts, and fans alike attempt to rehash the Novemberesque collapse the Celtics underwent in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. We’ve already heard Ime Udoka mention Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown as the players who “let it get away from [Boston]” as Miami capitalized on Boston’s...
