[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Celtics vs. Lakers - Thread to end all Threads on this subject : I am only playing the game you created when you replied to my posts. If you read my first post to start this thread I laid out the HISTORY of the Celtics and Lakers. I didn't omit anything important. [/QUOTE]
"important" is an adjective. Thus it's only your OPINION that only those facts you posted are important. You cherry-pick those facts that favored you. When challenged with more FACTS by Itsnot1966Anymore and myself, you cried mama.
I certainly find that you omit many important facts, like you failed to reveal the Celtics' failure, especially in recent years.
In other words, you are using the same trick again used in courtroom, dishonest salesperson, false advertising, etc., namely, "using carefully selected facts to paint a false picture", or simply put, "not revealing the whole truth".
Heck the Lakers even won a few categories. I didn't ignore anything historical that pertained to my argument. Your replies ignored the facts I laid out and then you twisted them in favor of your own team. [/QUOTE]
Of course, just like you carefully selected the facts to favor your team, and now even have the nerve to say "I didn't omit anything important".
And just to be clear about this 48 and 47 number of failures you keep throwing out. To have a chance to win an NBA title you have to be in the playoffs right? The Lakers have been to the playoffs 58 times and only won 16 championships. That means they failed 42 times. The Celtics have been to the playoffs 49 times and have won 17 championships. So they failed only 32 times. The number 42 is greater than 32 so the Lakers have failed more times than the Celtics in the playoffs. That is your logic backfiring right back in your face. [/QUOTE]
Now you are twisting more logic again, twist it to "make the playoffs" first?
To make the playoffs you have to play in the regular season first, true or false?
[QUOTE] I twisted them back in your face and at the end of the day the Celtics will have more championships than the Lakers. [/QUOTE]
At the end of the day the Celtics also had more failures than the Lakers, thus giving 17-48 no advantage over 16-47. Too bad you can't dispute that fact.
So give me another one of your twisted facts so I can blow it out of the water. I will get you every time. I will follow you all around this message board blasting your lame posts until you take your ball and go home.

Sure blow it out of the water, by bragging the 16 times the Celtics missing the playoffs. Your cover as a Laker agent here is starting to blow, just like Fierce's cover when he credited the Lakers with the 1947-48 NBL championship...
Please follow me, and I like to see how a fish trying to get off the hook, yet getting hooked deeper and deeper...
