Mystics/Wizards PA announcer Mike Clapper talks about his gig on Friday nights

One of the Wizards' public address announcers talks about how fun it is to announce NBA games, and also what nickname Ted Leonsis gave him in an interview with the Mansfield News Journal. There are only 30 NBA teams and not many more positions for public address announcers. Therefore, it's always interesting to see what they have to say about their roles. The Ohio-based Mansfield News Journal had a chance to interview Mike Clapper, who is the Wizards' public address announcer for Friday games. Clapper is also the Mystics' full-time public address announcer since 2011 and is a native of...

The Boston Celtics have the pieces to trade up and grab the prospect they are targeting

Which players could the Celtics target if they trade up in the draft? With four top 45 selections, a surplus of future picks, and tradable young players, the Boston Celtics are well-positioned to trade up in the 2015 NBA Draft. But they'd have to pay a pretty penny to find a willing dance partner, since the talent drops off after the top 8 picks and again after the lottery. This draft is loaded at the top, so a talented prospect will drop to the 6 to 8 range; it's only just a matter of whom. While it's not out of the question for the Celtics to make a leap to this area, it's more likely...

Kyrie Irving reacts to Kevin Love's injury, loss of his "brother"

A little late, but I found this interesting Lost in the commotion of Kevin Love's injury and subsequent surgery is the effect it would have on Cavaliers players emotionally. You can worry about matchups and Love's impending free agency, or even if the injury will affect his play next season, but that misses the human element. We've debated all season what type of teammate Kevin Love is and whether or not he was fitting in or not. I think we've learned a bit about that in the last 10 days. First, of course, is the way the Cavs responded after Love was injured. Kendrick Perkins came in set a...
