    You have GOT to be kidding me. Maybe they'll run the table ... you know, they ARE on pace to do it.

    What the people at ESPN are failing to realize is how everyone on the 95-96 Bulls stayed healthy for the whole year, including the postseason, more or less.
    I know they've both been pretty consistent in their careers, but Ray Allen played in 55 games last year and Pierce only played in 47. If one of those two guys goes down for any amount of time and that statement by the supposed World Wide Leader will seem even more absurd.
  4. What the people at ESPN are failing to realize is that, sometimes, you need editors to pull the plug on arrant fucking nonsense.

    But then half of their web site would be down.

    This is what happens when you have 600 analysts on staff.

    The Celtics are on pace for an 82-win season.

    It would be a new record.
  10. Bingo. There's an incredible amount of boredom at the WWL.

    Big-Money Analyst #1: "You wanna make stuff up and make nonsense comparisons?"
    Big-Money Analyst #2: "Hell yeah!"

    ESPN.com has more NBA analysts than the NBA has fans. It's no wonder they come up with bullshit stories to keep busy. Off the top of my head, I can think of a dozen guys who write extensively about the league on the site:

    Stephen A
    Chris Sheridan
    Chad Ford
    Marc Stein
    JA Adande
    Chris Broussard
    John Hollinger
    Tim Legler
    Greg Anthony
    Bill Walton
