a wild series
took two more game then I thought it would but they got the job done.
Well, damn, that was a very entertaining game 7. Yea I’ve been pulling for the massive underdog Heat the whole series, but I didn’t expect them to actually win it. Or pull away in the first quarter and never allow Boston to get close the rest of the way. Or see Caleb Martin deliver heroic playoff awesomeness.
I do feel a slight bit of sympathy for Tatum getting injured on the first!! possession of the game. That sucks, and I can’t believe he played nearly the whole rest of the game, gimping the whole time. The NBA gods are effing cruel. Still, Miami actually had to win it.
It’s weird to be a Miami fan. But even so, go Nuggets!
Caleb Martin smoking the Celtics in the ECF was the funniest thing ever
Celtics could really have used Rozier……again.
If Denver wins the championship, they will have done it facing the 8 seed, 4 seed, 7 seed, and 8 seed. By seeding, the easiest 4 round road to a championship of all time. Could only have been easier by seeding if the Clippers had won.
This is about as good of a second post-season option as I could’ve hoped for. Rooting for Jokic. After him… Embiid will be the remaining monster center who hasn’t won a championship (out of Giannis, Jokic, Embiid).
Another idea for next season's backup center lol
Let me share a thought for the “clever” C’s fan who got a tattoo last year, declaring Celtics 2022 champions before the finals: no way to recycle it!
When I think I’ve acted in a dumb way I think of him…and I feel better!
MVP voters count was 5 for Butler and 4 for Martin.
Jaylen Brown doesn't really seem like a 16 game type of player to me. He has to add more to his game to adjust to playoff adjustments. Once teams realizes he can't really dribble he turns into an awful unwatchable player
I haven't looked yet, but I would imagine that Miami is favored over the Nuggets. Pat Riley, 5 rings as a coach, some more as the GM with Miami. Spoelstra, 2 rings, 6 eastern Conf. championships.
How many for Malone or the Nuggets?
For any Bill Simmons fans/haters
Butler named Larry Bird award winner on the Celtics floor.
This just in: Boston team appearing as guests on next Saturday Night Live. Will perform as guests in the hit sketch, "What's Up With That?"
There is something to be said for having a killer instinct. Closing out another team in the playoffs might as well be a different sport. These dudes on Boston are gonna end up with PTSD.
Miami players are quite subdued for just having won the ECF. Maybe because they’re not at home. Or they’re already thinking of Denver.
