soaboutthat: No bias there... Rondo gem and James masterpiece... nope no ESPN bias at all


You're mad about adjectives not being properly weighted?
 
2012-06-09 11:15:03 PM
Heh...Rondo tried to throw the towel over the camera lens.
 
2012-06-09 11:15:24 PM

Now That's What I Call a Taco!: I hope Eddy Curry gets some run in the finals.


Jesus, Eddy Curry with a ring. Fark THAT.
 
2012-06-09 11:15:49 PM
James with a lot of words for Doc Rivers...much respect, I'm sure.
 
2012-06-09 11:15:53 PM
Haha, Celtics just walk off the court before the game's over. Dickish, but funny.
 
2012-06-09 11:16:01 PM
I can only assume Rondo and KG will get destroyed for walking off the floor
 
2012-06-09 11:16:07 PM

What_Would_Jimi_Do: dammit celtics, i hate only one team more than you and it's the lebrons.


If it's any consulation it will be much more painful for James when he loses in the finals.
 
2012-06-09 11:16:31 PM

Nana's Vibrator: VvonderJesus: Dear god please Miami, do not let your guard down.

Boston won't score 11 points total before the end, nevermind making up an 11 point deficit.


I meant to say they'll only score 2 points in the final 3 minutes when their careers are on the line.
Night everyone. Lights are going on and I'm headed upstairs. The wife and kids are going to have some bruises to explain on Monday morning.
 
2012-06-09 11:16:41 PM
Celtics went full LeBron in the 4th quarter
 
2012-06-09 11:16:45 PM

Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Easy to say now, but it seems like this Celtics team was one or two guys short from being a real title threat. They've only got 2 bench points tonight.

The Jeff Green and Avery Bradley injuries really hurt, because no one else really stepped up consistently in their absence. But if I was Danny Ainge, I'm not sure I would blow this team up just yet. If you can get Ray and KG to come back on the cheap, and then add a guy like Kaman with your MLE, that's a legit title contender next year. I'm not sure any other move they could make would leave them in as good a position near-term.


Yeah, this is a weird season to base anything on - not just because of all the injuries Boston had (including 2 guys with heart/aorta problems!), but because of the compressed schedules.

The only issue is that next year Pierce, Allen and Garnett are all a year older. But if their supporting cast gets better, and Rondo stays healthy, I think they have a good shot next year.
 
2012-06-09 11:16:45 PM
Nobody likes the 1990-91 Detroit Pistons, Celtics. Bad form.
 
2012-06-09 11:17:11 PM

pjlawrence81: Are the Heat fans giving the C's a standing ovation? Good for them.


I think they were cheering because the C's were pulling their starters, thereby putting up the white flag. Please, never ever for a minute start to think that Heat fans are classy.
 
2012-06-09 11:17:13 PM

Aar1012: Dear ESPN Commentator:

I don't care if there is one second left. You don't say 'Why does it matter? the game is over.' on a broadcast. You're a journalist not a fan.

Sincerly,
Aar1012


That would hold more weight if at least 2 Boston starters didn't leave the court and head right into the locker room with 9 seconds left and the clock still ticking down. Come on Rondo, you can't stand around until the buzzer and then get out of there?
 
2012-06-09 11:17:21 PM

TheJoe03: TheManofPA: There was almost zero chance for Dallas last year.

If you actually watched them play last season you would know that ain't true, especially if you mean when it came to the Finals. Dallas matched up to them so well, the Heat are the ones that really never had a chance.


I hope your right, but it just seems like we keep turning LeBron now into Cena. He's the unbeatable MVP but we keep pretending he's the underdog. Then he goes 100 minutes in a row without a foul (LeBron is almost at 67 straight minutes played without a foul; i don't remember when he checked out last game)
 
2012-06-09 11:17:32 PM
Did Rondo just walk off the court early, without shaking hands?

DESTROY HIM!

Seriously, Lebron did this and got MURDERED in the press, and by many of you.

I'm betting Rondo gets a free pass.
 
2012-06-09 11:17:33 PM
Glad Pierce and Allen stayed out the hand shakes. I really didn't want to see them pull it off but congrats to the He........I mean Wooooooooooooo! Woooooooooooooo!
 
2012-06-09 11:17:42 PM

karmaceutical: fark YOU BOSTON!

 
2012-06-09 11:17:58 PM
what a game, amazing.

what's with Garnett & that other farktard leaving the arena early...no sportsmanship.
 
2012-06-09 11:18:02 PM
Well, the 2 Celtics who bailed, don't want to apply that brush to the team. My bad.
 
2012-06-09 11:18:09 PM
As a basketball fan, Heat-Thunder should shape up to be a great series and something really fun to watch. That being said, fark 'em both. Heat in 6

Nope, that was a totally classless move. Boo that man. He can't bear to wait out 10 seconds?
 
2012-06-09 11:19:23 PM
Dear OKC,

Throw a crapload of money at Mark Cuban and get Delonte West on your team. His unbelievable peener is LeBron James's only playoff weakness. I don't care if you have to give up Westbrook and buy 200 boxes of condoms, if you want to win, you need to ride West like Gloria did. Just make sure he has a threeway with the mom/baby momma as that's all that is left to do this year.

If Lebron's the unbeatable MVP then why does he keep losing?

Oh, right
 
2012-06-09 11:20:04 PM
Well LeBron is a great player but so is Durant. Then when you look at the rest of the two team's rosters, you'll see that the Thunder are just a better all around team. You couldn't say that about Boston, because they had pretty much no bench or depth. If Miami struggles this much against the old Celtics, they will play worse against the young Thunder.

/would love to see Durant beat James
 
2012-06-09 11:20:26 PM
From our capitalist leaders (the Wall Street Journal): "The Heat are not the better team in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Celtics are."

So vote Romney because Ruppert Murdoch is smarter than you.

I can understand Rondo being pissed. He's about to be the only decent player on a team that's rebuilding, and his inability to score is going to stand out like a sore thumb
 
2012-06-09 11:21:53 PM
Wow, those fans really do suck
 
2012-06-09 11:22:20 PM
I can't deal with people wearing a hat over their ears.

It's just not right.

For every crooked hat at the ceremony TAKE A DRINK

Miami / David Stern in 6 games over OKC.
 
2012-06-09 11:23:34 PM
"We've got the classiest fans in the NBA."

THEY JUST BOOED DORIS BURKE AND THE CELTICS
 
2012-06-09 11:24:05 PM
Dearest David Stern:

Whoever you have winning in your Predetermined Thugball Championship script, please let it end quickly. A sweep would be ideal.

Smoochies,

Apparently, James dagger is going to knock out Manny tonight too.

Linda Cohn at 1pm on ESPNRadio: "The Celtics will win because the Heat can't close games."

Linda Cohn after Game 7: "Heat win! Who says they can't close games?"

Problem is that OKC is going to be playing 5-on-8 most of the series.
 
2012-06-09 11:24:56 PM
Also, Bosh earned his whole paycheck tonight.

Ah. I just got the sense that maybe they were recognizing this was the end of this Celtics era, and they were showing some respect.

what? In this series only Wade and James had more total points than Rondo, out of all players on both teams (and Wade only had 4 more).

He scores when he thinks he needs to, and is getting better at jump shots and free throws.
 
2012-06-09 11:27:05 PM

SithLord: Miami / David Stern in 6 games over OKC.


Yeah, Stern, the owners' representative, is going to help the guys who basically rendered owners obsolete in their decision to unite against his best friend in the world, Clay Bennett - a guy who he helped move. A guy whose Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame speech he gave.

You're out of your mind.

I'd almost give KJ a pass because that's probably his last game as a Celtic.

Hondo, no way. Classless.
 
2012-06-09 11:27:27 PM
If the Heat had beaten the Celtics in four or five games, they'd lose in the Finals no question. But this was a test, and it might help them make the Finals a competitive series.

I won't be watching...maybe checking out the scores every other game or so.
 
2012-06-09 11:28:16 PM

pjlawrence81: this Celtics era


*snicker*
 
2012-06-09 11:28:21 PM
Well, the Celtics put up a good fight, but Bosh hit some big shots and Lebron gave the Heat some nasty when they really needed it and got them going. Should be a good Finals matchup. Guess I'm on the Thunder bandwagon.

ESPN agrees with your initial opinion. I agree with Di Atribe.
