Tom Brady's Absence From OTAs Isn't Worth Hysteria

By Ty Anderson, 985TheSportsHub.com Make no mistake about it, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's decision to miss the first day (maybe week) of OTAs is a deviation from the norm. For 18 years, Brady has been a football-consuming monster whose desire to be the greatest has led to five Super Bowl titles, countless 19-week byes to…

Anderson: The Cavs Think The Celtics Are 'Gooning' It Up? Good.

By Ty Anderson, 985TheSportsHub.com I'm gonna level with you: I have never been more tempted to buy a Marcus Morris jersey than when he screamed right in Tristan Thompson's face after Thompson fouled Morris in the third quarter of Game 2. The NBA Store's 20 percent off promotion did not help settle these urges. In…

Anderson: Celtics Should Expect LeBron James Show Tonight

By Ty Anderson, 985TheSportsHub.com It's rare to see LeBron James as ineffective as he was in Sunday's Game 1 beatdown at the hands of the Celtics. The Cavaliers? Sure. They had an initial sugar-high following their trade deadline shake-up, but this is the James Show as much as it was in 2010 when the Celtics…

Anderson: Bruins Already In Uncomfortable Situation With David Backes

By Ty Anderson, 985TheSportsHub.com Here's something slightly unsettling: David Backes, whose postseason resume was praised by the Bruins upon his signing in 2016, has found a way to fall down the depth chart in back-to-back playoff runs. He started the 2017 playoffs bouncing around the top six but finished it on the third line. He…

Anderson: It's Really Easy To Despise The 76ers, Huh?

By Ty Anderson, 985TheSportsHub.com Much to the chagrin of Sean Sylver and the Celtics-Sixers rivalries of yesteryear, I'm sure, I didn't think that the Philadelphia 76ers were going to be all that worthy of my hate. They were a young team with confidence that seemed largely due to their naivety of the situation of playoff basketball.…

Remarkable Even-Strength Failures Spelled End For Bruins

By Ty Anderson, 985TheSportsHub.com It'd be nice to blame the officials for what happened to the Boston Bruins in their five-game series loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. It'd actually be the most convenient thing to do, too, as it would be beyond satisfying enough to simply say, "That's fine, they'll be here next year…

Anderson: We're Talking About The Officials Entirely Too Much

By Ty Anderson, 985TheSportsHub.com To properly put this second-round series between the Bruins and Lightning into perspective, we've hit the point where there's been so many game-changing non-calls and assorted nonsense that I've almost completely forgotten about Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask trying to play his position without a blade on his skate in Game 1.…
