Team Midrange

The mighty Celtics just got mightier through the acquisition of two key veterans: Sam Cassell and P.J Brown. Both of these players are consistent and deadly mid-range shooters. In fact, Sam Cassell is a midrange legend.

With these acquisitions the Cetlics are arguably the greatest midrange shooting team ever assembled.

Sam Cassell. Ray Allen. Paul Pierce. P.J Brown. Kevin Garnett - all lethal midrange shooters.

NBA Finals Leap Year Theory

The 2008 Lakers are well on their way to the NBA finals. That is if you believe in the "Phil Jackson/Lakers Leap Year Theory." Either a Phil Jackson coached team or a Lakers team has made the NBA finals every leap year from 1980-present.

1980: Lakers Win the NBA Championship (4-2)
1984: Lakers lose in the NBA Finals (3-4)
1988: Lakers win the NBA Championship (4-3)
1992: Phil's Bulls win the NBA Championship (4-2)
1996: Phil's Bulls win the NBA Championship (4-2)
2000: Phil's Lakers win the NBA Championship (4-2)
2004: Phil's Lakers lose in the NBA Finals (1-4)
2008: ?

The Lakers are the current favorites to win it, but now you also have this added tidbit to keep yourself busy with. It may be a good time to start placing your bets...
