About Kirk Minihane

Kirk Minihane thinks "Slap Shot" is -- without argument -- the best sports movie ever made and is also convinced the 1985-86 Celtics would have finished with a record of 78-4 if they had cared about the regular season. He has been a columnist at WEEI.com since 2009 and is now part of The Dennis & Callahan Show.

There is probably nothing to the Chris Paul for Rajon Rondo talk that's been in the air for the last 24 hours or so. An internet creation that has had some legs. Probably nothing more than that, right?

Report card time. We last handed out grades at the quarter-season mark (May 19), and much has changed. At that time the Sox were doing the lambada with .500, and it seemed that we might be headed for a lost season.

One man's account of the end of a franchise, but the start of a new-found respect for ESPN. OK, maybe just the end of a franchise. 9:00 p.m. (EST): I always knew that hell would start with a Stuart Scott voiceover.

The Celtics and Shaquille O'Neal? I guess it's possible, as long as everyone is realistic. That, of course, starts with Shaq himself. And that's where the problem begins.

Here's one man's running diary of the 2010 NBA draft, where cash consideration happens … 7:30 p.m. (EST): I was terrified ESPN wouldn't kick off the coverage with a music video/montage. Nice to have the fears allayed with the sounds of Michael Buble.

Ten questions as we head into a Game 7 that will go a long way in the defining the legacy of several Hall of Famers.

Ten Thoughts from a Game 4 that included Kevin Garnett getting called for a three-second violation with 20 seconds left on the shot clock. Always nice to have the best and brightest with the whistle for the NBA finals, isn't it?
