Thanks for the Simmons article. It was nice to look back at some of how the greatest NBA team since the 1986 Celtics was formed.
Simmons is originally from the Boston area. We are some of the smartest, most progressive people in the country. We were the only state to vote for McGovern over Nixon. The Boston Globe
was a leading voice against the Vietnam War. We were at the forefront of putting an end to slavery.
We have some of the best schools and hospitals. We have consistently had the greatest percentage of liberal politicians. Liberals are much better people than conservatives. The word liberal implies positive reform. Conservatives are thought of in terms of Fox News, starting illegal wars and torturing people, wiretapping, producing massive national debt, and increasing corporate welfare while decreasing spending for social services.
Some people hate Massachusetts, especially rednecks and other forms of wingnuts. One in particular stalks this board every day. He has a variety of usernames. Others like you go around in circles with simplistic attacks on the Boston Celtics. But I'm digressing.
You are not doing much more than spamming. McHale was between a rock and a hard place. Garnett was at the end of his prime. Minnesota was going nowhere. While a lot of what he received for Garnett was from the "Al Jefferson pu pu platter deluxe," that was not a lopsided trade.
I'm sorry your Lakers are headed towards a long stay in Mediocreville. Danny appears to be the only GM who has planned for the lockout. While the Lakers are stuck with their over the hill stars, Danny is ready to move on. Depending on how hard the new salary cap is, the Lakers may no longer be able to buy championships while being stuck with a lousy roster.
Congratulations on your recent titles. Los Angeles now has 11 of them. Boston has 17. You've closed the gap quite a bit and have cemented your place as the second best team in NBA history. Maybe mommy can bring down some milk and cookies for you to celebrate with in your basement.
