Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

With Ainge and Doc in charge I think C's got 2-3 more years of being real good. Rondo/Bradley/Pierce/Bass/KG is nice and they have a lol $34.5million on the books for next year. Maybe get Jeff Green back, maybe sign one of Dre/Nash/Kidd/Terry for bench but man big men free agents lookin like a slim market.

Also, lol @ the Heat end game. Terrible hero ball that killed them in G2 against Dallas.

Hold your head up, Celtic Nation, 'cause you still got heart.

I'm oddly at peace with that game.
Exactly how I feel.

We outran expectation every year except one, where we met it.

2008- won the whole thing
2009- pushed orlando (team that ended up winning the east) to 7 without garnett
2010- lost in nba finals
2011- meh
2012- ecf game 7

It was a long two months between the draft lottery and us getting Garnett in 2007, and it's been a fun five years since. I don't think I'll ever enjoy a sports team more than I did the Celtics in 2007-2008, but this whole run has been great.

You don't need to "have" twitter to check that. Just Google "Bill Simmons twitter" and you can see all he posts.

I don't like Kobe; I was too young to form a real opinion on Jordan during his runs, but if he were around today, I probably would not be a fan.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

i was def not as at ease in 2010 as I am now. 2010, despite getting way farther than we were ever supposed to, and despite Perk not being there, I felt we let the 'ship get away. Tonight, we just got outplayed clearly and we gave everything we could.

Though something has to be up with Pierce.

i'm not sure ray even wants to be back. he can't stay without being trade bait and he's not in love with playing behind bradley.

the original TZ, maybe even the 1st two years of it, was essentially a Cs and Trailblazers thread.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

I<3Poker: I see what you're saying, but the difference between 1 and 0 rings is a big deal.

See, e.g., how the media/public treat Wade vs. Bron.
