[QUOTE]Elias.....just to sum up.....I didn't put Milwaukee in the mix of the Big Four......the national media did...... [/QUOTE]
Boy, you don't think you can get away with this one, do you?
The national media did? I was there in the 80s too. I can easily say "the national media did NOT". It's always the 76ers and the Celtics in the east. There was no Milwaukee Bucks in the mix. In fact, the Bucks were a "west" team in 1979-80 and how far did they go? Not even to the conference finals.
So, don't ever think you can put up lies here and get unchallenged.
as for being the far superior team and dominating the East......you beat us twice when #1 Bird and Max were injured (Max, a former Finals MVP and the MVP of game 7 against your Lakers was reduced to a cameo role) and #2 our team was a walking mash unit in '87.... Your totally dominant team lost to the Sixers in a sweep and lost to us....also the Pistons....5-3 is not dominant pal......9-3 is dominant......[/QUOTE]
Yeah, so injury was the reason that the Celtics lost to the Lakers? Glad that you finally gave credit to the Lakers. Afterall, their lost to the 76ers in 83, Pistons in 89, Bulls in 91, Pistons in 04 and Celtics in 08 were all due to the injury bug. Glad that you finally recognized the Celtics championship was tainted...
But the more astounding finding from this is, you are really a crybaby. You don't think or debate like an adult. Afterall, 25 years after the loss, you still can't accept it like a man. INJURY IS PART OF THE GAME. You really have to move on. It's evident that the past Celtic glory in the 60s weren't giving you an ease of mind...
If you say 9-3 is dominant, then what about 10-4? Glad that you finally confessed, the Celtics were totally dominated in the big-time NBA era, or if you don't like that term, the "modern NBA" era. You'll be roasted by this conclusion from now on...
by the way, in '86 we didn't get to beat the Lakers thanks to Sampson's fluke shot....if you recall in the regular season the Celtics dominated the Lakers in both games (I still have the SI magazines by the way).... ....[/QUOTE]
Yeah? talk to your alter-ego BirdisCoward. Regular season don't mean jack. This is really the fun part of picking apart your arguments. They are not consistent...
