In response to heirplain's comment:
I can sorta appreciate where you are coming from but stay with being a Celtic FAN please.
The table was set...champion ring ceromony, MVP, Ray tuining turn coat. David being there Rasheed Etc Etc etc. The perfect WWF hype.
There is no way the "C"s are going to win this game. Rondo was icing on the cake!
Jeff and Sully a non factor, KG being as he was, a Celtic defense that wasn't in the room ( it was for a while along withsometimes in pre season). This was a NBA hype up to get a huge audience.
I'm not all for a conspiracy theory but you have to admit something smells rotten in Denmark here ,and Denmark is one of the greatest societies on this Earth imo.
Yes KB, Wade and LJ are major contenders but let's wait and see....Seasons not over yet!
Wake up and watch!
Quote"""The classy Ray Allen scores 19 points in 31 minutes, says hello to former collegues, and then KG, the pride of Celtic Nation, shows everyone in the country watching how a 36 year old man can still act like a petulant teenager, by giving Ray the cold shoulder and giving the young, immature, impressionable, (and somewhat petulant himself) so-called new team-leader, Rondo, a real good example of how to behave. Way to stay classsy, KG.
For his part, the so-called new team leader, Rondo, who was partly responsible for running the ever classy Ray Allen off the C's, got himself two immature, uncalled for technical fouls, and then with 1:28 left in the game Rondo missed the biggest shot he had all night, a 13 footer that would have pulled the Celtics to within five points. Clunk, back-rimmed it, game over. Way to stay clutch, Rondo. I'm just being fuh-c-tious.
Hey Heir, I like that. I'm one who's always embraced a good conspiracy theory: remeber the infamous "Tainted" thread that got to 1,000 posts -- thems was the days.
I agree that that game was not theirs to win. But boy, nobody bargained for Barbosa who brought them nearly all the ways back: then for Rondo to clank that shot with 1:28 left, down by five. I didn't appreciate his two techs either. Especially in the context of him being the new team leader: is that what a leader does?
Sully was pretty effective in the pre-season but then so was Jeff. I liked that Sully first NBA bucket was a great slam on an offensive follow.
The schedule's going to allow some easy pickings which shoud give them an opportunity to gell. How they play against the elite teams though will tell the story. We're playoff bound for sure and we got the whole season this year to get it figured out. We may need it.
Don't believe the hyperbole, I'm with the C's all the way: I'm just not buying the party line. Even though I'm not from Ohio, I'm still a "show me" kind of guy.
And thanks for discussing basketball instead of launching some crazy hateful rant attacking my character. This is supposed to be fun.
Ya can't look at much, can ya, Man.
