Still trying to get a handle on the case of a frequent guest at Celtics' home games. I don't expect to see him again in the "seat of honor" next to Celtics ownership under the basket at the west end of the floor.

Friday, Feb.22:

Happy REAL George Washington's Birthday.

Resilient Spurs at Excellent Raptors. While Spurs have shown remarkable staying power for a rebuilding team, Raptors are hungry for the top spot in the East. Toronto by 8 SLAM

Thunder is the best defensive team in the West. Jazz play hard. Oklahoma City by 14

Saturday, Feb. 23:

Happy birthday to my elder sister.

Rockets at Warriors pits two of the best against each other. Is the power of the beard enough to overcome a team with much power? Golden State by 9 SLAM

Sunday, Feb. 24:

Happy birthday Steve Jobs, Emperor of Apple, and Charles V, former Holy Roman Emperor.

My rooting interest is the Clippers, merely for their draft pick. Celtics own it if Clippers don't make the lottery. Problem with this is that Nuggets probably have way too much for Clippers, and the Nuggets are at home. Denver by 13 SLAM

While Spurs might be licking their wounds after a clawing by the Raptors, they are still a bit better than the train wreck in New York. San Antonio by 11 SLAM
