At last - it begins
The 2005-2006 National Basketball Association season has begun, but tonight, the Boston Celtics play their first game of the season at the newly renamed TD Banknorth Garden against the New York Knicks. Anyone who knows me knows that I wouldn't care if the Red Sox and Patriots folded or moved to Mississippi tomorrow as long as the Celtics stayed in New England forever.
The picture above is of Celtics power forward Al Jefferson putting Charlotte Bobcats forward Primo Brezec on the proverbial poster with an earth shattering reverse smash. Primo's "my God, why have you forsaken me?" expression combined with his shrugged shoulders and upturned palms speaks volumes.
Speaking of posterizing, let us not forget Ricky Davis. Sure, he was with Cleveland then, but this is one of the sickest dunks of our age.
