Socks and sleeves. One has been around ever since the game began. The other is a recent fad that many people seem to be jumping on board with. Which socks are better? Short or long? Striped or plain? Light or dark? With compression sleeves does colour really matter? Do they actually do anything? Do they stop your arms from falling off? I’ll tackle these monster questions in Part 2 of NBA Fashion.

Tag: Jason Terry
The Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets have agreed in principle to a blockbuster trade which sees a huge roster swap complete what will be remembered as one of the great eras in Celtics history. Earlier this morning, Yahoo! sports columnist Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news that the Celtics were looking to offload Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Nets in exchange for Keith Bogans and three future first round picks. This followed the epic departure of longtime coach Doc Rivers for the Western rivals the Clippers not even a week ago. Holding up the deal was Garnett’s ‘no trade’ clause within his contract which states that should the Celtics attempt to trade him, it can only be completed upon his approval and waiving of the clause. This afternoon, the great KG did just that and in turn opened the flood gates on the biggest trade to rock the NBA in months. We are only now getting an insight into what the parameters of the trade actually are.
Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry will head to the Deron Williams-led Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Kris Humphries, Reggie Evans, Gerald Wallace, Tornike Shengelia and Keith Bogans plus three future first round picks (unprotected) in 2014, 2016 and 2018. ESPN reported a big reason for Terry being involved in the trade was because Boston are absorbing the $30 Million contract of Gerald Wallace. The Nets however still have a payroll of approximately $100 Million and are deep in luxury tax territory in 2013/14. Boston have gone into full blown rebuilding mode, attempting to gather as many picks as possible in what we can assume will be a draft-oriented build.
The trade cannot be made official until July 10th when the NBA will lift a league-wide moratorium on all trades and signings.
It would seem most people around the League, be it fans, media, even fellow opposition would be impressed by a 20 game win streak.
Well….. not the Boston Celtics.
Here’s what Terry had to say about it…
Washington Wizards guard Jordan Crawford has been traded to the Boston Celtics today in exchange for the injured Leandro Barbosa, sources confirm. Included in the deal, Jason Collins who will suit up for the Wizards. While Crwaford was seemingly a valuable part of the Wizards’ plan, he has been on the receiving end of reduced minutes behind Bradley Beal and more recently has had four straight DNP-CD’s to his name. Boston’s need for athletic big men have not been the focus of trades this year, but it is thought that Crawford’s ability to register good numbers will help Boston’s back court offense alongside Avery Bradley, Jason Terry, Courtney Lee and Paul Pierce. Leandro Barbosa’s contract stands at only $2.3 Million giving the Wizards room to move under the cap in free agency.
In news this morning Dallas Mavericks veteran guard Jason Terry has signed a 3-year, $15M deal with the Boston Celtics. The Celtics used a $5M trade exception to land Terry in a deal that only further strengthens Boston’s perimeter.
We’ve all heard the stories of the rich & famous having the strangest of superstitions, why they have them we’ll never really know.
Axl Rose has a bizarre superstition with the letter ‘M’, he refuses to play any city beginning with the scary ‘M’. Christian Bale likes going against superstitions and will walk ‘under’ a ladder when he sees one. Our sports heroes are the same, if a little weirder.
David Beckham will never wear the same pair of boots twice, tennis star Goran Ivanisevic had a strange superstition of having to get up from his chair on the change-over and would try to never step on any of the lines. Off the court, he was even worse. If he won a match at a tournament, he would repeat everything from the previous day – go to the same restaurant, eat the same food and try to talk to the same people. Strange!
NBA stars are no different! (more…)
