    "It's funny how these same trolls laughed at the Celtics when the Celts signed Shaq, JO, and Sheed..."

    Nash had an exceptional NBA season this year. And Howard is still very much in his prime unlike Shaq, JO, & Sheed. None of these latter 3 showed that they had much left in the tank, especially the two O’Neals. But I do want to thank those Celtic fans for caring so much about the health and well-being of Howard & Nash. It shows that you can put petty loyalties aside and support all the players in the NBA, no matter the team. :)

    LOVE IT THANKS! I bleed green. I moved to the west coast almost 20 years ago. Growing up during the Bird era, and going to basketball camp at BC when the Big East was IT, was the best way to learn about hoops, Celtics Pride, and the correct way to play basketball.

    Thanks for this post. On top of the history, the blatant difference between the untimely dealth of two of our young stars - vs. a whiny Kobe that didnt want to play for the team that drafted him - the gift of Gasol, or Shaq, DH etc wanting to be in the glitter land of LA is astounding.

    Thanks for the history reminder. I am fairly confident that the LA Punk/Troll kingdom wont be able to comprehend beyond their love for Kome.

    Laker Faker, thanks also for being a class act. Not because of the kind things, but more because you have perspective. Heres to another final together soon.

    lakerfaker and go green are the same person

    they posted pratically the same thing
    As a fellow Celtic fan, I have accepted that the Lakers are the team to beat this year and my Celtics are not going to even sniff the Finals for a few more years. I am a realist also.

    As a fellow Laker fan, it hard for me to say that the Celtics have put together a tremendpous team.  I am afraid they will have not problems with my Lakers.  It must be nice to same some real nice talented draft picks.  We will never know since our GM wastes them on players like Sessions and then let them leave.  Its emabarrassing that the same Lakers fans come around each year pounding their chest how great we are.  The we proceed to the second round and get pounded.  you guys have a tremendous future and shouldn't miss a beat thru the transition.
    good Luck to u guys.

    Oh, I almost forgot, the main reason why the Lakers will not win a championship this season? No team in the history of the NBA has won a championship with a clown as coach. HAHAHA

    another addition to the great Celtic history and tradition.....those of you that watched Russ vs Wilt on television will remember the great halftime show entitled "Red on Roundball"......the master put on a clinic every Sunday afternoon....

    how good were the Celtics when it came to execution? ......they only had a handful of plays....Red would call out a number and the Celts would go into their maneuvers....Jerry West, among others, said that they knew exactly what was coming as they also knew the plays "by the numbers".....and still, more often than not, they couldn't defend what they already knew was coming...think about that for a moment....talk about execution...that says it all....Red was the first genius in the league....and, unlike Phil, he built his teams from the ground up....the early Celtics weren't a great squad....but as head coach, general manager (before he had that title) and chief scout, Red did it all....the results speak for themselves...!!

    Lakers have signed Eddie Jordan and Bernie Bickerstaff as assistant coaches. Mike Brown wants Eddie to introduce elements of the Princeton offense to fit the Laker personnel. No one questions Brown's ability to focus on the defensive side. Now the offense will be directed primarily by Jordan.

    These are facts, not predictions which aren't worth the paper they're written on!

    It's funny how these same trolls laughed at the Celtics when the Celts signed Shaq, JO, and Sheed. I mean when the Celts signed those 3 players, they were healthy. Right now both Nash and Howard are damaged goods. And Laker trolls are so happy they got damaged goods. HAHAHA

    Would you trade those damaged goods and and the team for what you got? I don't...MUHUHUHUHHAHHAHAHAHA...

    Re: Celtic Dominance

    I realize some Laker fans wants to surpass the 17 titles the Celtics have achieved but I really don't care when 11 of those titles were won in an inferior league of just 8 TEAMS. Take away those 11 titles and you're at SIX! What a joke! And those SIX were won over 4 decades--FOUR DECADES!

    The Lakers almost matched that in the 1980s and 2000s

    What does count is the here and now and not what happened a half-century ago. Who cares except some Celtic fans that weren't even born at the time Boston dominated a league with JUST 8 TEAMS.

    Imagine dominating a grudge league of 8 teams with a 6'9" center. Those are your bragging rights? That is what your yelping about, hooten & holleren to try and get the nation's NBA fans attention? What have you won the past 2 decades?

    Can you please repeat that number again? What is it--ONE itty bitty title? Why are you whispering? Is that an inferiority complex for being irrelevant for soooo many years.

    I don't blame you for digging up success from half a century ago after sooo many years of futility, of crying about feeling cheated by the league, the refs, the failures.

    "Bynum can still do a favor for the Lakers - inflict pain on
    Boston.


    ...It was in London last week where Sixers head coach Doug
    Collins and his old friend, Celtics coach Doc Rivers, were
    hanging out and taking a break from their duties
    broadcasting the Olympic basketball games for NBC. Collins
    and Rivers go back more than 30 years so the old basketball
    coaches certainly have few secrets between them.

    But when the topic of centers in the NBA came up, Collins
    must have had his best poker face or cat-that-ate-the-canary
    grin. Little did Rivers know at the time that one of his
    worst fears was about to join the Atlantic Division.

    “It was kind of funny. We were talking one night and he was
    talking about low-post centers and he said the only guy he
    really worries about is Andrew Bynum and I was about ready
    to choke,” Collins said with a wry smile. “I was thinking,
    ‘Hey, Doc we’re going to get him tomorrow.’”...

    Thank you very much. You guys have a lot to look forward to this year. You have some class acts as posters and some players. You work together in unison. I wish my Laker franchise operated this way. You are right we have been gifted with some strong inside players. Our management knew Kobe couldn't do it so they bring in people like Shaq and Gasol. We all know both of these players were the reason Kobe won his rings but we still have gfan acting like it was Kobe. Paul Pierce or Ray Allen in Kobes place and they probably have more than 5 rings since they wouldn't have run off Shaq because of the Alpha Dog syndrome.

    Titles, TITLES, championships, CHAMPIONSHIPS. Again some few Boston fans want to brag about how far the Celts got in the inferior East in the playoffs. Atlanta? Sixers? Knicks? Ugh!

    IT SHOULD BE IRRELEVANT HOW FAR EITHER L.A. or Boston get in the playoffs unless you win a TITLE. The measuring stick SHOULD BE TITLE! No title, the seaon was a failure!

    I can bring up the fact that the Lakers, yes the Lakers have been to the finals more than any other franchise in NBA history, including Boston but who cares! The measuring stick for L.A. fans is championships. Whether you lose 4 straight, go to 6 or 7 games in the playoffs--who cares!

    & the fact that Boston has only won 1 itty bitty title in more than 20 years says it all about futility whereas the Lakers have won 5. Cry all you want, talk about how you was robbed, that the league has it in for Boston--whine, whimper--but those are the facts. :-)

    Please don't count Minnesota titles as ours. I didn't jump up and down with glee when Minnesota won them. Obviously our organization doesn't really want to take credit either or there would'nt be a flag with more than 1 title on it. I think our organization put the asterisk on those titles long before Celtic fans did.

    Re: Celtic Dominance

    to Laker67.....that 6-9 center was named the greatest player in league history several years back (actually he was 6-10 compared to DH who is listed at 6-10 to 6-11)

    Big Bill had to go head to head with "Goliath" (aka Wilt Chamberlain, who was listed at 7-1 275)......he also matched up with Thurmond (6-11), Bellamy (6-11), Hayes (6-9), and Reed (6-9) to name a few....by the way, they are all in the Hall of Fame..

    why don't you take a look at the competition big George faced in the late '40's through the mid '50's.....five of your team's titles came before the shot clock..which forced Mikan to leave the game at age 31 because he couldn't play the game under the new rules (slow, limited mobility, and infamous for being afflicted with "white man's disease").....no wonder Laker ownership waited over 40 years before they recognized that team from another city....and one banner just about sums it up as far as how little the franchise considered those titles....it was to give the new generation of fans a chance to catch Boston...and you really think that history is not an issue in this ongoing thread?....man, wake up....it is all about history...or we wouldn't be having this conversation...why don't you  go over to the Yankee board and try telling those fans that their history should not be celebrated...you know...Ruth & Gehrig...Dimaggio & Mantle......I mean, c'mon....at least face the facts that have led to this debate...I can't help it if you weren't around to see the era that the Celtics dominated...both teams were superpowers in the '80's (Boston just had better competition in the East)....the '90's finally saw the Celtics not winning a title for the first time in history (don't think losing Bias & Lewis had anything to do with that...along with injuries to Bird and McHale? ...guess again)...by the way, the Lakers didn't win anything either but that was not as big a story....I'll give you the first decade of the millenium...but as of right now we are both contenders, as it shoud be...
