In response to Duke4's comment:
Interesting opinions to say the least.......
we won it all in 2007-08 by embarrassing the Lakers in a 6 game romp..
in 2008-09, after once again dominating the league, we lost KG for the season and the playoffs.....otherwise the odds were overwhelmingly in our favor for a repeat!
in 2009-10 we lost game 7 on the road after leading for most of that game....while playing without our enforcer..
and last year we lost game 7 on the road in the Eastern Conference Finals in Miami....
all in all, I'm proud of their performances.....sure as hell beats a combined 1-8 over the last two playoffs.....
Celtic Pride...Celtic Mystique....even after all these years....
So in your opinion, 0-0-1-1-0-0 beats 0-0-0-2-0-0. In other words, you treasure how far a team advances in the playoffs even though it doesn't win the championship.
In other words, by your logic, losing in the finals sure as hell beats NOT making the finals. BY YOUR LOGIC,
16-15-9-12-7-5 sure as hell beats 17-4-12-11-6-16
You got no choice, by comparing their playoff performance while NOT winning the championships, you are endorsing the Lakers' historical record over the Celtics. The 15-9-12-7-5 blows out your playoff-missing-heavy 4-12-11-6-16.
Duke, your post will be saved to argue against you forever. You can't delete it...
Besides, injury is part of the game. You are saying that the Celtics lost within the context of the game.
