In response to puddinpuddin's comment:
I liked your unedited initial response better. More honest!
And yes, rame has an odd way of saying "Welcome to the board, amigo." LOL!!!
Early on, he called me a "coward" for lacking the courage to leave BDC when it was all too clear that my Rondo-hate he didn't appreciate. Simply calling me an "idiot" and letting it go at that would have been a better fit.
And then I got put on Spanky's ignominious "IGNORE" list.
Talk about bullying!
But I'm still here and I'm still hatin' Rondo.
The lack of moderation at BDC does make it intriguing.... and occasionally entertaining too.
So dig in your heels and enjoy the ride, amigo.
And stop apologizing for goodness sake.
Pud you have gotten much better over the years, I'll admit that.
When the Celtics were NBA Champs and yearly contenders with a 22-26 year old Rondo your blind hatred of him was unjustified. He was the 21st pick in his draft. There were no better options at PG as all assets were traded for HALL OF FAMERS. And the team was doing special things they hadn't done since 1986-1988.
Any Celtic fan who felt the pain that began with Red blowing the 1989 trade deadline/draft and concluding with the tanking 2007 season should have been overjoyed. But your rampant, disgusting attacks against a 24 year old kid on a small rookie contract dropping triple doubles in playoff games was absurd.
Now that PP/KG are gone and Rondo is a 28 year old making all-star/#3 best player money and looking for a max deal while barely improving his game since 2010 you are FINALLY justified in your attacks on him and they aren't nearly as racist sounding or hate-filled as when you made them 3-4 years ago.
So kudos to you for becoming a better poster/person over time.
You still view this board as a place to vent your anger or frustration however, which it can be used as, and why maybe you are sticking up for this new guy, who so far has made a bunch of unjustified attacks on the franchise and sounded like a pretty big loser.
I prefer to be positive and look brightly towards the future.
Ainge let the big 3 hang around 2 years too long, but got an amazing deal from the Nets for them and now all we have to do is trust in him that the rebuild will be fun and fast.
