Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and a shared love for Gino Time

There was a different feel to this Kevin Garnett homecoming than the first. No longer paired with Paul Pierce on the Nets, he received a standing ovation from Celtics fans and a smattering of “KG” chants during Brooklyn’s pregame announcements in the Garden, but nothing like the catharsis in January. Still, the love is there, […]

Paul Pierce could play some power forward against Miami

That's a good thing! With Nene and DeJuan Blair suspended for the season opener against Miami, Randy Wittman is apparently giving some thought to playing Paul Pierce at power forward.

Paul Pierce says "no hard feelings" about Nets departure

Paul Pierce spoke to reporters about his departure --and Jason Kidd's-- before the Knicks-Wizards game Tuesday and said he understood the Nets decision not to bring him back was "business" but that he was shocked by Kidd's decision to leave. Pierce did not directly state that the Nets had given up on their championship aspirations, but by describing the Nets rationale of dumping him as "business," he implied it.  Nets officials have called the move a basketball decision, saying Pierce was no longer needed upfront with the return of Brook Lopez and Kevin Garnett to good health ... and that...

Pierce: Kidd's exit 'like a domino from there'

NEW YORK –- Paul Pierce is surprised and disappointed that the trio of Jason Kidd, Kevin Garnett and himself lasted just one season together in Brooklyn. In his first trip back to New York after the Nets opted not to re-sign him in free agency, Pierce said Kidd’s split with Brooklyn started what felt like a chain reaction and shift in direction for the franchise. Just a year ago, the Nets were talking championship with Kidd, Pierce and Garnett aboard.

Three isn't a magic number: On the Wizards' struggles from downtown

The Wizards' offense has been among the lowest scoring in the preseason thanks mostly to awful three-point shooting. Is there any hope things get turned around before the team's shooters get healthy? The Wizards' reputation for offensive prowess exceeded the team's actual performance last year. Pulled down by a poor bench and an over-reliance on mid range shots, the Wizards finished the season 16th in the NBA in offensive rating. Significant improvement was expected given projected improvements from their young players, a deeper bench and the addition of the versatile Paul Pierce. But those...
