Re: Ainges/Celtic's Style Bad for NBA

Run, I had to take you off ignore to get a bit of a sense for your latest absurdity.
Just want to get clear with you, you do realize that you have no idea about professional basketball right?
Sure, Bird versus Magic was the glory days of the NBA. Everyone knows that. What you fail to consider is that the modern NBA has the problems you talk about across the board. Just about everyone would admit it's not as good a brand of basketball.
That said, if you didn't enjoy the seven game series against the Heat and all the drama of the young guns against the Celts wiley veterans, then I feel sorry for you.
I'm a big Ainge critic but I really feel sorry for you watching old NBA film on the television while the rest of us watch playoff basketball. You do realize before Ainge that we went through a ton of losing basketball right?
You want the Pitino era again? Go ahead. Enjoy.
I personally enjoy advancing in the playoffs.
And your favorite run and gun team, the Phoenix Suns, never won a championship. Never got that close really. You think their fans would have traded with half court San Antonio to get to the finals and win? You bet!
You value run and gun, some of us prefer to watch our team win, which means defense and half court sets. Lebron doesn't learn to play in the post, the Heat don't win a title either.
You do realize that Rondo can run the fast break right? He just needs younger players around him and better rebounding and we should see more fast break ball.
I'm really getting sick of you coming in here with your demographic complaints and impossible comparisons to 80s teams (as if the Lakers aren't a half court team as well now - welcome to reality).
Either get behind this team and get excited about watching winning basketball or just go away. I'm not responding to you again because you're worse than the Lakers trolls - who love your pathetic stuff as you noticed. At least they never turned their back on their own team like you did. You're the worst fan in here. If you are a fan at all.
Get your Lebron jersey and move on.
