By - Kris Fletcher & Tim Swift

- Guillen's Mouth Strikes Again: Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen was suspended 5-games last week for remarks he made regarding Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Did the team handle the situation correctly?

- Rise of the Celtics: After a sub .500 first half of the season, Boston has one of the best records in the NBA since the All-Star break. Are the Celtics now truly a threat in the Eastern Conference?

- Pay to Play?: Ray Allen and Dwyane Wade have both represented the U.S. in the Olympics. They both also believe NBA players should be compensated for their efforts. Fair or foul?


- Trouble For the Heat?: Miami has looked mediocre in the second half of the season. Can LeBron & company turn it on once the playoffs begin, or are their recent struggles a sign of things to come?

- Brawls on the Rise: Why are NHL playoff games looking more like wrestling matches this year as opposed to actual hockey games? We'll give you our take.

All this and more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
