[QUOTE]How was I wrong? You were clearly talking about a post I had nothing to do with. Go find a post where I garaunteed we would win game 2. I was not involved in the westbrook post...so while I hear your point, it is a weak one, because you didnt prove ME wrong...go talk that B.S. to someone it applies to...and you still didnt asnwer my question...if what you can call yourself a celtics fan, than I killed Bin laden.... who do you think you are fooling?? Your posts say more about the kind of person you are than it does for people simply supporting their team, as we dont play the games we just watch...if YOU ARE a fan of the celtics...than like I said, you are a cowardly fan. Even a broken clock is right once a day...so you as a fan spend all year talking shyt about the team and dont show up when they win and post everywhere with negativity when they lose!??!?! this is your claim to fame? Gimme a break, you are a joke!, and whenever you wanna play some pick up ball, let me know..I'll be a better judge than you of your skills....You are a Liar! why would I believe you have any game?

My argument re. Westbrook is better than Rondo is a weak one? Only on this board, sorry. Coach K didn't think so. There were 5 point guards in the all-star game, Rondo was by far the 5th best.
I don't talk c rap about the team, usually I try to provide information to help individuals form their opinions. Ignoring information that is available generally weakens one's opinion or at best leaves it less than informed. So statements are made, opinions provided, projections are made, etc. and they could not be further from the truth and I find quite often dead wrong.
I generally don't whack the team at all, what I do quite often do is question the validity of people's opinions of players. I often find opinions of players to be way off the mark. I will give you a perfect example -- when I started posted here Delonte West was all the rage and that they somehow had discovered their point guard of the future late in the first round - one poster dared me to name one point guard in their division that was better than D West - well at the time it was Marbury, Kidd, Iverson, and TJ Ford..... so a statement made by a poster in a complete vacuum was proven wrong as usual but the statements persist and I just try to recognize that there are other players in the league. Only in Boston are the Cs the Globetrotters and the other 29 teams are the Washington Generals a bunch of nameless, faceless players who could not possibly hold a candle to his counterpart on the Cs roster.
I no longer play basketball - on Easter Sunday in 1989 I was playing a pick up game and broke my right ankle in two places, after months of PT and stretching, etc. I rejoined the team that I played on in a league in Boston and stepped on someone's foot on a fast break and my left knee went backwards and my tibia broke in 9 places - non-weight bearing for 4 months, once that was all set, I rejoined my team and reached in for a pass and tore ligaments in my thumb. It was at the point I decided to take up golf.
I am sure you are the best amateur basketball player on the planet and I am sure you would be the first to explain it to me as well.
I post all the time, win or lose, winning or losing has almost nothing to do with what I write most of the time.
