    The Pipeline doesn't take credit for the scoops of others. The Pipeline GIVES credit.

    Good pickup. Spears is a great NBA writer and I enjoyed his work in Boston and Denver.

    Marc has had four jobs -- Post, Globe (Celts beat), Globe (NBA beat), Yahoo! -- at a time when there's hardly any movement in the sportswriting industry. Bully for him, must be nice.

    The Pipeline also is a professional badass.

    And Marc Spears is a 6-foot-7 badass. Guess he's a beast in any media pick-up games (assuming there's 10 media guys still working to play full court).

    Lots of three on three these days, sadly.

    Yep, we've been downsized to half court.

    Maybe the dumbest question answer (hoping to retain points by acknowledging this in advance), but any chance they'd fill?

    Playing ball at San Jose State for a year doesn't hurt him in that regard either.

    Yeah, well, Stephen A. Smith played somewhere in college, too, but does that mean you want him covering and opining for you?

    Huh? I was referring to his skills on the court, man.

    Regardless, that's a Hell of a loss for the Globe.
