    [QUOTE]Good one, BP - but I think the all-time biggest collapse is still the Yankees being up 3-0 and ahead in the 8th inning in 2004, only to lose 4 in a row! Followed closely by the 76'ers being up 3-1 on Larry's team, only to lose 3 in a row- that was playoffs, much bigger The Sox, while it was a big choke, had no leadership, no pitching, Youkilis hurt, and Francona thinking of leaving - collapses are much bigger in the playoffs, wouldn't you agree?
    Posted by Red-16Russ-11[/QUOTE]

    Naw, it's pretty much everyone's opinion, including almost all sportswriters that the Red Sox collapse is the worst in all of sports history. To be up by 9 1/2 games with just 3 weeks left and blow it will haunt Boston for decades to come.
    But then again, you all deserve this very humbling experience, now we won't have to put up with the Archie Bunker arrogance anymore.

    The 2000s was 10 years ago? The Lakers won a title two seasons ago. That isn't ancient history. Anything to try and ridicule the Lakers organization. 1 title in 2 decades or is it 3 decades for Boston and they feel they have "bragging rights" to the Lakers 5 titles in this past 2000s era.

    Lets continue to trash the accomplishments of L.A. This is what happens when the owners shut down the NBA, Boston then turns its attention on the totally irrelevant--whether the Lakers deserved those championships.

    How's Shaq doing?

    Re: Laker 8-peat

    Boston has more NBA titles than L.A.? Who cares!

    People in L.A. don't wake up in the morning & think about the Celtics. They think about work, their economic future, the things their family needs. 

    The NBA is just entertainment. So I'm going to preoccupy myself with millionaires who shoot a ball through a basket? I enjoy the sport, enjoy the competition, but in life's scheme of things, it's almost at the bottom of th heep.

    A good marriage, a happy & secure family, a bright future--those are nice things to appreciate. Millionaire's dribbling a round ball and throwing it through a basket is a temporary escape.

    Nope, but 16 LO Trophies (as in 16-47) compared to 17 LO Trophies (as in 17-48) is, as Duke said, as close as you can get.

    Yet 15 additional finals appearances vs 16 missed playoffs is a big difference, no matter how you cut it.

    Well, you can always try the stunt that missing the playoffs is as good as losing in the finals. Try it. I'll smash it into pieces.


    [QUOTE] Do you honestly believe that losing in the 1st round of the playoffs is better than being in a position to get a good player in the lottery?

    Do you honestly believe that a team's goal for the season is to miss the playoffs and get lottery picks? Is that the Celtics mindset in the 90s?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Laker 8-peat : That's where you are wrong! The Celtics had to play the Pistons, Sixers, Hawks, Knicks, and Bulls in the 80s. If you didn't know those teams had Isiah Thomas and the Bad Boys, Dominique, Bernard King then Patrick Ewing, and MJ and Pippen. Who were the Lakers up against in the west in the 80s? The Sonics and Xavier McDaniel? A Mavs team led by Rolando Blackman? Only the Rockets were considered a championship caliber team in the west back then. Are you still having a hard time accepting the fact that the Celtics still have the edge over the Lakers in the finals and regular season? Poor you. lol
    Posted by Tachometrix[/QUOTE]
    Yes, the Celtics had to play the Hawks, Knicks and Bulls in the 80s. The Lakers had to play the Mavs, Rockets, Jazz, so?

    Championship caliber teams? seems like the Lakers could still beat them too: 76ers, Pistons.

    Are you still having a hard time accepting the fact that beating the Celtics were no big deal? Duke said it, "to be the best you have to beat the best", yes or no?

    If the best were the 76ers, Pistons, Nets, Pacers, Magic, etc., then the Lakers beating these teams for the titles were BETTER than beating the Celtics for the titles. True or false?

    I know you dare not answer.

    In other words, 3-9 vs the Celtics with 16 titles is TOUGHER to achieve than 16-9 vs the Celtics with 16 titles, becasue the Celtics were no good in 13 of the years the Lakers won the titles. They were wise to wimp out before the finals.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Laker 8-peat : You'll have to forgive some people for lack of comprehension.....see, Bynum got hurt, THEN the lakers traded to get Pau Gasol to play CENTER for the remainder of the 2008 season and playoffs.......that is a fact that has been proven on numerous occassions.  What was going to happen in 2009 has never been speculated on by me.....just the FACT that the trade didn't happen until Bynum got hurt...........they didn't need another CENTER, they had two!!  All reasonable people get this!!
    Posted by Red-16Russ-11[/QUOTE]

    Now Red, you are smarting again. Try to wimp out on your proof from ESPN? Now you have to resort to Gasol playing center as your proof. So Gasol played center again when Bynum was not yet fit at the beginning of the 2010-11 season. In other words, Gasol is capable of playing both positions. If Bynum is there, he'll play PF; if Bynum is not there, he'll play center.

    All reason people knows that Gasol would have played PF had Bynum not hurt. He's been doing that in 2009, 2010 and larger part of 2011. Apparently your new reasoning is not getting you anywhere...

    Still no proof that "if Bynum not hurt, wouldn't have traded for Gasol". Being 6th seed at the time Bynum got injured was a solid reason to trade for Gasol no matter what...



    Looks like your proof is not

    Not funny at all. Your own words "to be the best you have to beat the best".

    When your team is not the best (can't even represent the east in the finals), what's the point of beating your team?

    It's not that simple. Some people make up the rules along the way.

    Your rule: Steelers ruled the NFL, despite with only 6 NFL titles, 7 fewer than the Packers.

    So, what rules do the Celtics follow?

    The Packers had 13.
