In Response to I post here because I love this team!!
[QUOTE]Board, I bleed green!! I'm financially and emotionally invested in the classiest franchise in the NBA!!! We have a banner for every title we ever won. We embrace our history and truly honor our marquise and hustle players by retiring all of there numbers. We even had a guy named Loscituff that had his name retired so somone else could have his number. There are teams that have almost as many and don't make the same investment in every title and every great player like we do. There is no better place to watch a game. There is no better feeling than that electricity in the Garden. I get goosebumps in anticipation of watching them on TV even in the preseason. I love my team! I root for them in good times and in bad! You can't duplicate this anywhere else!! Boston is the greatest place ever for the NBA!! There is no debate no discussion no nothing and if you want to try you just show your ignorance!! If you don't care about this team and you want to harass people, you are truly a pathetic excuse for a human being and I truly feel bad for you. 18 is locked and loaded!! LET'S GO CELTICS!!!!!!!

I applaud anyone's passion for their home team for that is what being a fan is all about. But what troubles me is when fans lay claim to "my town is the best, my team is the best, we have the best fans, the greatest legacy, blah, blah, blah". To me, that is where the trouble begins.
We want to see a good game, we want to see our team win, we like to analyze the how & why of a team and of a game, but beyond that, leave me out of the yahooism and the idiocy of media fueled rivalry's about days gone by.
The "I'm a bigger, better, truer, more loyal fan than you are . . our fans are better, our legacy is better, blah blah blah," mentality just makes me sick. Sorry about that. The "I bleed more green than you do." crowd?
Com'on, we're all fans of different stripes and varying passions. Count me out of all of that.
Count me as a fan of the game of basketball, a fan of the game's history, and a fan of the Celtics and their storied history. But I'm not going to get into any p!ssing contest with anyone about any of that. To me, that's just stupid and leads to mindless, pointless arguements.
But count me in on the controversy of how poorly managed and corrupt the NBA has become under the current Czar and the owners organization and how the players have become near mindless enablers of this corrupt system.
The C's are looking for a Non-Tainted Championship.
