In response to Fierce34's comment:
And exactly how many "experts" (you can include yourself here), at this time last year, picked the Celts to go as far as game seven in the the conference championship series. Do I hear a "ZERO"?
It seems to me that you were rooting for the C's to go for the lottery this time last year...
You were wrong then .... you are wrong now. You have no cred. You've got a lot of basketball paper knowledge - and ZERO Celtic soul. I expect you will begin your lottery lobbying soon.
You're forgetting that when the Celts played the Hawks in the 1st round, the Hawks didn't have Pachulia and Horford only started playing in Game 4.
In the 2nd round the Celtics were taken to a Game 7 by a #8 seed team Sixers. The only reason why that Sixers team reached the semis was because Rose got injured in Game 1 and was lost for the entire playoffs.
And in the ECF, Miami didn't have Bosh until Game 5.
You may not like me, but you can't deny the fact that the Celtics were just extremely lucky last season.
