The Spurs look a little rough around the edges right now. The Rockets looked better until last night, but they have to be tired after ripping 22 in a row... The Celts just had one of those nights where the shots were falling. I'm more concerned about the Lakers and the Pistons right now as far as the playoffs go. Detroit might not be the best in the NBA but they have the Celtics' number.
The Celtics are the most fun they've been in years - decades even - and no not because they're winning
Starting 5 to the last guy on the bench, they're all fun to watch. Guys like Rondo and Leon Powe and Sam Cassell (I love that we picked him up!!). It's nice to see NBA teams passing and playing defense again. Obviously this Celtics team is not the only team doing that, I just mean the NBA in general - it's getting back to what it used to be. And it's great to see a team where not one guy is trying to carry the whole team, and drive up impressive personal stats, or anything. It's a team top to bottom. I love that.
Yeah, sorry I had to get the dig in. And Geek, for your own sake as well as all NY fans, don't compare the Giants with the Knicks. The Giants are a good all around team with a good coach. They were David knocking off Goliath in the Super Bowl, yes, but they're a great team and came through when it mattered most - the playoffs. The Knicks are a joke right now. I feel really bad for Knicks fans because they're screwed as long as Isaiah is in charge. It stinks becasue it makes the East more weak, it makes the Celts early clinch of the Atlantic seem impressive (the team is all that, but with competition like the Knicks and the current Nets it hurts credibility
) Seriously - the Knicks are an OLD school team and have a legacy and a history and the current state of things is worse than watching last year's Celtics team (worst record in team history, fans openly rooting for the team to tank to get a high pick in the Oden/Durant sweepstakes, and then we ended up with the 5th pick - stupid lottery...)
Besides, the last Knicks Celts game I watched the Celtics held the Knicks to their 2nd lowest point total in franchise history. The only reason it wasn't the
lowest is someone hit the 3/4 court buzzer beater for 3. Impressive shot. All it did was put them one point above the worst Knicks total ever...
jhamnett - I know life's tough in EU without your gear, and with the horrible conversion rate of USD to EU. But, if you can stay until after June... That'd be great
Clean inside, dirty outside is how like i like 'em!
