Nuts! Newspaper Makes Classic Typo in NBA Headline


The Evansville Courier & Press, a newspaper serving Evansville, Indiana and surrounding communities, made a classic headline mistake in its roundup of Tuesday's NBA news. Can you spot it?

Former Celtic Brian Scalabrine was also an assistant under Golden State's Mark Jackson this season but was reassigned within the organization on March 25. On Scalabrine's departure, the ESPN report adds:

Sources say the team made the move because Scalabrine exhibited a consistent pattern of disrespect toward Jackson and the other coaches. Mainly, he ignored and refused to speak with the other basketball coaches. At one point, Scalabrine went five weeks without speaking to Jackson, one source said. Scalabrine even avoided the coaches on the team plane, sitting in a separate section, according to one source.

Donald Sterling Leaves Doc Rivers in a Tough Spot


For a little while there, it appeared that Doc Rivers had it all in his new gig with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The former Celtics head coach passed on another daunting rebuild in Boston this summer to move on to the bright lights of LA.

"I didn't do anything wrong,” Rivers said of leaving Boston for the Clippers during his return to the TD Garden in December. “I decided to leave at some point. It should be all good. I had a good, wonderful time here. I have nothing but good things to say [about Boston].”

Rivers couldn’t be faulted for wanting to leave, and the reasons he gave for his departure were understandable. The main problem some people had was the way in which Rivers left town. For most of the summer, Rivers stated publicly that the Celtics were on board with his departure, knowing full well that the team would have preferred that he stayed and honored his contract that lasted through the 2016 season.
