[QUOTE]In Response to Re: 1972-73 Knicks nba champs despite lowly rebound average : I never denied that Perk's injury was not a factor. What I don't agree with is you saying Ray getting hurt caused the Celts to lose in the 2010 Finals.

slowly starting to see the light... Perk's injury 'may' have been a bigger issue than the reounding in disparity in the actual games? Becuase Perk, a very good rebounder/rim presence was not in the games
I was at games 3 and 5 in those finals... I did not see Ray Allen in those games... He was so hot and then boom, it was gone. He was 0-8 and -11 in the game his leg got messed up in. I personally know a miniscus can be played through. The quotes are endless that Ray's legs get altered a bit and the shot is gone. He was +8 the rest of the series.
If you insist the quotes from Doc were lies and he just had a bad game,went 0-8 from 3, tough luck, maybe he had a minor bruise no real athlete couldn't just play through, well then there is no way I can reason with you.
Going 2-8 actually doesn't guarantee a win, but as I said I was there, I knew 1-2 big buckets were all that game needed to push the C's to victory, one hustle play/rebound Ray couldn't make b/c of his bloated black and blue leg...2-8 and 1 Ray rebound makes that game 83-82 with 2 mins to go instead of 82-80l, the overall rebounding #'s 39-38 instead of 42-35 and the Gsarden is jumping instead of confused as to how their Ray Allen bricked shot after shot...
tou want to say Artest's dirty play and Ray being hurt didn't lose that game... be my guest... I was there, I'll NEVER believe it
and you are already saying Perk could have, you know, MAYBE altered the outcome of a game that was tied w/ 5 to go and the C's led for the first 30 mins
so please, enough with the rebounding farce... it was a shame they got 38-39 instead of 42.... it didn't make them unable to be champions
