In Response to Re: Laker 8-peat : You serious? Even Kobe Bryant thinks making the finals is not good enough.
But your Celtic cohorts think that reaching the finals are good enough. Posted after the Game 7 loss in 2010:
existentialparquet: I've never been prouder of our Celtics. They battled extremely hard. It didn't end up going their way.
Soxpeat: Count me in as being proud of the Celtics. They played their hearts out.
LloydDobler: Absolutely. They left everything on the floor tonight. Just couldn't make any shots is all, and I'd rather lose that way than from a lack of effort.
I'm every bit as proud to be a Celtics fan tonight as I was two years ago.
Karllost: Celts did much better than I thought when the playoffs started.
mbrann: Celts pulled off a few magical plays at the end but not quite enough. Although they missed the championship, I will never forget this post season. Bittersweet.
rpn313: No one in this forum would have (truly, seriously, honestly) thought 6 weeks ago that we would be in a game 7 for the championship. And here we were tonight, a two point game with less than a minute remaining.
I hope there will be a lot of fans at Logan or outside TD to welcome home our warriors. They deserved it.
BostonboyinCA: Yes, count me in as one who is very proud of our Celts
DaveM1967a: Good thread. Great season. I'm proud to be a Celtic fan. Not sure when we'll be hear again. Painful painful loss. But the Celts team can hold their head high.http://www.boston.com/community/forums.html?plckForumPage=ForumDiscussion&plckDiscussionId=Cat%3aSportsForum%3a9529Discussion%3a54a81905-e308-42fa-a3d5-2d7973336ddd&plckCurrentPage=1
CelticPridePinoy: I wore my celtics larry bird jersey in a well known las vegas casino and eventhough there are a lot of california lakers fans celebrating after the lost (man they are rowdy and rude now i know why most casino employees dont like laker fans) Im still proud, very proud as I walk out of the huge sports viewing venue. Its a valiant effort.
bostonian128: As sport is reduced to entertainment, we had a chance to be reminded of how much more it can be. The timbers of this ship are built of indestructable character and I am very lucky to be a passenger.
fiorelladad: I am so proud of my guys in green. Congrats to the Fakers, back to back. Still I feel like 1987 all over again, claw and scratch against all currents to just die on the shore. As it is I prefer to go out like this instead like all the front running teams we beat to get here. It was a 4 point game in a game 7 and not a 39 point blowout on a game 6 to clinch. I will cherish this postseason as well as the scalding we gave them in 08.
celticsfanmx: Indeed it's very sad they lost. But on the other hand they just showed us what they're capable of, even in the conditions they started the post season. If they didn't become champions now it's because something was missing, and believe me, it wasn't heart.
Proud Celtics fan until the end!
mataymay03: I love my Cletics sooo much and Im really proud of what they have done this year.
bilalkazmi: Frankly, we had the toughtest playoff schedule out of any team in the NBA. We met Cavs, Magic and Lakers without having home court on our side. And the fact that we are the oldest of the 4 teams, I cant be prouder of how we competed.
zizou78: So much pride and love for the Celtics! They fought tooth and nail.http://www.boston.com/community/forums.html?plckForumPage=ForumDiscussion&plckDiscussionId=Cat%3aSportsForum%3a9529Discussion%3ace1d1555-c461-40d4-8dfa-8ac363c41597
Susan250: Agreed that it was nice to see the Celtics in the finals again even though we didn't win. http://www.boston.com/community/forums.html?plckForumPage=ForumDiscussion&plckDiscussionId=Cat%3aSportsForum%3a9529Discussion%3a001a7cb0-fa72-420e-ad26-d2f28ba8d818
tmot1234: They left it all out on the floor. Really makes me a proud fan.
Congrats to the hated Lakers for their hard earned championship, but there's no doubt that the Celtics have earned a tremendous amount of respect around the country for what they have done this year.
BoylestonBB: Great post - Do not let this loss diminish what has been achieved, an Eastern Conference title is a great achievement. I no longer live in Mass because of business and my last live game was to see the Celts get smashed by the Wizards in early April. If you told me then we would win the East I would have called you mad!This team should be proud of what it has accomplished.
MitchBelgium: They deserve a lot of respect to even get here. At least we and the celtics kept beleiving and you know what. Losing an NBA finals that could have end both ways that eases the pain a lot.
BostonMan4: Does anyone know if there is any way to welcome the team back when they get to Boston? I would love to show them my support, and let them know that I still appreciate what they accomplished this season.http://www.boston.com/community/forums.html?plckForumPage=ForumDiscussion&plckDiscussionId=Cat%3aSportsForum%3a9529Discussion%3a236f33a5-421a-42be-9ddc-bb04ce474012
BiasLewis: So true it was a great run. I enjoyed it
Karllost: Knowing where we came from end of season, Im thrilled with this great playoff run.. almost winning the title.http://www.boston.com/community/forums.html?plckForumPage=ForumDiscussion&plckDiscussionId=Cat%3aSportsForum%3a9529Discussion%3ab406c07a-192e-4fb0-9355-05740df42d23
dickalan: But the Celtics ended the season as the second best team in the NBA - not bad.
Not bad at all.
So Kobe can think whatever he wants, but your fellow fans just refuted that: Making the finals is a proud achievement.
Why are you so desperate about the Lakers getting #17? Do you lose sleep over it? Does Fierce34 saying the Lakers have 17 titles make you happy? And do you really have to go back to 1948 just so you can claim the Lakers are at par with the Celtics? No matter what you do, the Lakers are still at 16.
No matter how you cut it, it's still
16-15-9-11-7-5 vs 17-4-11-11-6-16
or cutting you some slack: 16-47 vs 17-48, a tie.
So you can post only the championship counts, but that's NOT the whole truth. I am an expert of exposing people that uses the truth to lie, BY CHERRY PICKING THE TRUTH...
