[QUOTE]In Response to SA Spurs slide means... : Even though I am new to this board, I am well aware of your reputation here. Why do you get off on kicking other people when they're teams are down? When the Lakers were struggling I privately enjoyed it but I never rubbed it in with any of their fans. Just enjoy your team. You were fortunate enough to get through this season relatively injury-free. Just be grateful for what you have. No need to gloat about it here.

MsLithium, apparently you are new to this forum. Gloating is a staple on this site. Many of the homers on this site not only enjoy the Lakers "trials", but they like to revel in the past and remind us. They gloat about the C's head-to-head championship record against the Lakers; the 39 point blowout in the 2008 finals; Andrew Bynum's injuries; their record 17 championship banners...I could go on, but you get the point. Now, I know this is a "Boston Celtics" forum, but since this is an OPEN forum and some of the homers post comments that require a "counter-point", well me and a few other are here to help balance the discussion and keep them grounded.
For instance, only in Celtics land is Red Auerbach TODAY, considered the greatest coach in NBA history. The rest of the NBA world (talking heads included) consider Phil Jackson the greatest NBA coach, not only because he has more rings, but he's done it in an era with considerably more NBA teams, and at a time when All-star players come and go to the highest bidder. Red's teams were pretty stable for most of his championships.
I can bring up a counterpoint to any argument that a Celtics fan has. Most of my fellow Laker brethren already have. We'll argue back and forth and my opinion won't change that, TODAY, the Lakers are the marquee franchise in the NBA. Meawhile, guys like Duke, Pierce34 (and his many aliases), Concord and others will argue any point I make and they won't change their opinion that the Celtics are still the NBA's greatest franchise. But it's all good. That's the point of a "forum".
Like you, I enjoy when the C's stumble and fall. And right now, they're stumbling and falling more than the Lakers. But I'll admit, the C's surprised me during the playoffs last year and they might have a little bit of magic left before the rebuilding begins. So relax and enjoy the season. And don't take it personal if I rub it in your face cause the C's fans are going to do the same to me and some of the regular Laker fans.
