Tio Hardiman: NBA Players in Chicago to Promote Peace and Goodwill
Huffington Post - over 4 years
It was an honor to see NBA Legend Isiah Thomas, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Quentin Richardson come together on Saturday, September 22nd to promote peace and brotherhood at St. Sabina Church in the Auburn Gresham community on Chicago's South Side. The majority of homicides and shootings in Chicago are likely directly related to the fact that many young people do not know how to work out situations without the use of violence. Just as these basketball players may have been former foes on the court, they showed the youth that what's more important is coming together in peace and unity. The youth, who represented four different factions from the Auburn Gresham community, headed the message and came together to participate in the Basketball Tournament for Peace. After the game, the young men got a chance to break bread with the NBA Players and each other. There was plenty of positive dialogue between the young men and the NBA Players and one could visibly see the respect t ...

2012 NBA Playoffs: Orlando Magic Team Preview
SB Nation - almost 5 years
Note: This post serves as a general playoff preview for the Orlando Magic, not a specific look at their forthcoming series against the Indiana Pacers. It's designed for the casual NBA fan who (soundly) decided to follow other teams during the regular season. - Ed. Orlando Magic Team Record: 37-29, third in the Southeast Division, sixth in the Eastern Conference How would you describe the Magic in the regular season? Up-and-down and ultimately disappointing. The Magic had to deal with the constant drama surrounding Dwight Howard, which was supposed to end when he made the surprise decision to waive his right to become a free agent in 2012. Instead, the drama continued when coach Stan Van Gundy confirmed to the media that Howard had asked team management to fire him. And then Howard hurt his back and missed the rest of the season. But more than the drama, Orlando just isn't as good a team as it used to be. Otis Smith's moves have robbed the Magic of their depth, a ...

Celtics Live Blog: Paul Pierce Scores 29 Points to Bail Out C's in 102-98 Victory Over Magic
NESN - almost 5 years
Game over, Celtics win 102-98: Paul Pierce came up big, as he has many times before. As well as Avery Bradley has played, he still has moments where it is clear he is not yet a point guard. His turnover that led to a Glen Davis dunk, pulling Orlando within two points, was evidence of that. Pierce delivered a jumper with 7.6 seconds to go, though, then converted two free throws to bail out the Celtics and ensure victory at the TD Garden as the Celtics stayed within a half-game of Atlanta for home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, while also keeping Orlando as the sixth seed for the time being. The Celtics clinch the Atlantic Division with the win. Fourth quarter, :46.6, Celtics 98-94: Garnett had to go a long way to get down on the floor for a loose ball, but the 6-foot-11 center hit the parquet to gobble up a crucial 50-50 ball. Garnett got the timeout called to preserve the possession and put the Celtics in good position to win this, if they execute correct ...
