    There were several moments during last night’s game against the Boston Celtics when it appeared as though the Miami Heat’s 22-game winning streak was on the verge of ending.  And it would have marked the second time since 2008 that the Celtics ended a team’s 22-game winning streak on March 18 (they did it to […]

    Celtics Fan Hits Dwyane Wade in the Face with Ball (Video)

    Every NBA fan fantasizes about getting courtside seats. They put you up front and in the action like no other seats in sports can. In hockey you can sit right next to the ice, but there’s a big piece of plexiglass between you and the game (thankfully). In baseball you can sit right down by […]
