I see a Shank vacation after the Celtics - Lakers series is over, because we have three columns in as many days. The latter two as follows:
First up is the picked up pieces column, which contains a few interesting tidbits, but these columns generally come off as the 'mail it in' variety.
The second column compares Celtics trash talking, then and now.
It's tough to comment / mock this set of columns; they're just bland, and I get the impression that three columns in three days tends to water down their quality. I mean, more so than usual...
