How Wizards vs. Celtics became the pettiest rivalry in the NBA

The Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics have serious beef. Flagrant fouls, technical fouls, a verbal altercation with a coach, face poking, and MLB Jerseys Cheap the need for heightened security in the locker rooms.

That was all regular season though, and now we are headed for a playoff matchup. The Wizards and Celtics finished off their first-round opponents and will begin their second-round series on Sunday at 1 p.m. And it will be heated.

Back in January, John Wall told reporters that the Wizards would be wearing “All black everything,” to the third regular season matchup between the two teams. “A funeral.”

The idea to dress in all black came from Beal, according to the Washington Post. His troubles with Marcus Smart date back a year ago when the guard’s elbow accidentally clipped his face, breaking his nose, and giving the Wizards guard a concussion.

Griffin has an early termination option in his contract this summer, and after several disappointing postseason appearances, perhaps he’s ready to move on. A few days ago, Clippers head coach Doc Rivers talked about wanting to keep the team together no matter what happens, and he has a point: It’s hard to put together a roster that can consistently win 50-plus games and grab home-court advantage, especially in the Western Conference. But if roster fatigue has set in, perhaps Los Angeles just feels like it needs to mix something up.

It’s also interesting that the Coyotes haven’t been shy in surrounding Chayka with appointees who would likely make traditionalists in hockey foam at the mouth in anger and shock – for example hiring Gary Drummond as “director of hockey operations” from a career practicing law and 25 years in the oil and gas industry – as well as more traditional choices like Dave Tippett, in a management group that makes collaboration its key aim.

Patriots Fans Sue NFL, Commissioner Over ‘Deflategate’

According to the complaint, the league and Goodell relied on “false premises and biased ‘investigations'” in handing down punishment, which also included a $1 million fine and a four-game suspension for quarterback Tom Brady. Brady’s suspension remains under appeal.

The lawsuit claims the NFL violated the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act by “wrongfully revoking the Patriots’ 2016 first round draft choice.” It says Kraft could have fought harder to restore the draft pick, “but he chose his fellow billionaire owners above the Plaintiffs and fellow fans.”

The suit also alleges breach of contract, interference with contractual relations, common law fraud, negligence, racketeering and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
