Derrick Rose Has An Advantage

The Boston Celtics are getting a run for their money in the first round of this year’s NBA Playoffs.  They should have learned to take their first round opponents seriously after barely beating the Hawks in the first round last year.  Maybe it’s just that they did not expect the #1 overall pick from this […]
