Try to imagine this: The Boston Celtics are not the Harlem Globetrotters, they do not play the Washington Generals every night. There are actual NBA teams with actual players and coaches and often times the other players are better than some of the players than the Celtics put on the floor.
There is an entire mentality which you quite often display that goes something like this: when the Celtics win it is because of the Celtics, if the Celtics lose it can only be something the Celtics did internally or the refs caused them to lose.
With your mentality there is never any reason other than something than what the Celtics have done or something the refs have done that could possible have cause the loss.
So ignoring the teams that played Saturday - the last time they played, team A had its entire starting 5 which included their center and Team B was missing their point guard - who by all accounts is the best rookie point guard to come along since Chris Paul. Team A won by about 30 points. The next time the two teams played Team A was missing their starting center and Team B had their point guard. Team B won and not so coincidentally Team B's point guard was named the player of the game and hit the game winning shot.
So somehow in your little tiny tiny tiny mind the way to reduce it to something that fits your ego and perspective is that Team A did not play well.
The idea that Team B had really good match ups and this time had their best player on the floor may have made a difference......
Nope.... just Team A "didn't play well"........
What I guess I can deduce from this is that when your team loses it is because:
- the refs caused the loss
- they didn't play well.....
and certainly not because the last time they played the other team was missing its best player and this time your team was missing one of its most important players.......
I guess I have it now......... I think we call that homerism....... that is the mindset and mentality where the concept of OBJECTIVITY very simply does not exist.
