In response to SFBostonFan's comment:
Unfortunately, the happiness of the Celtic victory vs. Heat was short lived both with Rondo's situation and the Lakers, to me at least, looking very good beating OKC.
Magic, yup I know he is a former Laker great and partial, felt that Philly only 2 games back of Cs will have Bynum back & take our spot for last place in the playoffs. Another announcer, don't know his name, said now with Rondo out is the time to break up the team & look to build for the future and even said Cs should trade both PP and KG !!! Any opinions on that last comment ?
i'd be ok with it. pp and kg are still very good on most nights but not worth 26 mil combined.
as for making the playoffs, i honestly believe that our record will be at least as good/bad with rondo out. as for philly and bynum, who knows?
I'm certainly no Lakers fan, but from a nostalgic perspective I enjoy the notion that the Celtics might have to play the Lakers in the playoffs. If Kobe can figure out how NOT to hog the ball all the time and play team ball with his own team I certainly wish him well.
Now to say that the Lakers HAVE found some kind of solution to their problems, and the Celtics have not is pretty dumb thing to say at this point. The Celts win vs Heat says more about the Heat's road worries than the Celts problems at this point. Same for Lakers vs Thunder. Any team can beat another in the NBA on a given night. I just hope for both teams that they can find their collective mojo and string some wins together so they can once again fight for it all one more time in my lifetime.
