NBA Action….It’s Fantastic….er, Stupid!

If there is one reason to buy the NBA League Pass this year, it’s to listen to the impending meltdown of Celtics’ (ancient) announcer Tommy Heinsohn.  And if last night’s action against the Knicks was any sign…..the meltdown is going to happen by game six.  In fact I’ll put the over/under at 5 games.  It’s […]
