File: Former Boston Celtics' Jordan Crawford runs against Portland Trail Blazers after a steal during the first half of an NBA basketball game in Portland, Ore., Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014. He sizzled enough to stop watching his shots go in the basket, talk internet trash to Bill Simmons and capture the Eastern Conference Player of the Week award.
Gary Dzen has covered one Celtics championship run and one 18-game losing streak. He was there for Belichick's 4th-and-2.
A first round draft pick in the NBA is like gold these days. The Boston Celtics may have struck it with the sixth overall pick, Marcus Smart .

So this is the fun part - talking about Sixers Defense for the upcoming campaign! Last year with all the wrong pieces in place we had the worst defense in the league by far, and a philosophy of defend the paint at all costs, giving up outrageous - and I do mean totally, insanely outrageous - three point scoring to the opposition - in terms of both volume and percentage. This, according to everything we heard from the coach, was sort of by design, as he was focused more on pace and attacking nonstop on offense, while having no real rim protection at the other end, none that got any real minutes at any rate .
