    Was NO the seventh seed? How could the teams be even at 2-2?
    Posted by MinnesotaCelticsFan


    and your point being???  how can the spurs be down 3-1?  Aren't they the #1 seed?  How can the hawks be up 3-1?  Weren't they the 5th seed and didn't Magic dominated them last year?  This is the playoff the same thing happen last year to the lakers in the OKC series...  Don't kid yourself and think that the Lakers are done because all they really had to do in NO was to take back the home court adv. and they did...

    lakers will beat NOH, but the problems are much bigger.  They have no energy, and koME is obviously hurt.  They are in for a much, much, MUCH harder time this year, and to ignore that is being ignorant.  WE are in for a much harder time as well - so why don't we worry about that, and stop talking about the lakers?  Who really cares about them anyway, this is a Celtics forum!!

    I don't think you really believe what you're posting Q.  I think you know the lakers REALLY needed a quick out in the first round to get some recovery time.  Sure, they'll win this battle, but it sets them back in the grand scheme.  Absolutely no doubt of that.

     Q, Every step in the playfoffs is going to get harder...and upsets galore...no one is  immune without playing their best. injuries play a big part as well. deep bench helps..you know that..quit lying to yourselft...thats why i like our chances over the Lakers of comming out to the finals.I would not be bragging about my team, if they lost 5 or 7 in a row going in to the playoffs and only tied at this point. I would be very concerned. and you don;t hide it very well with  your bravado...like a child, calling names when you dont get your way.. if you had any class or maturity, you would congratulate the celts fans, and admit your concerns about the Lakers chances this time...instead, your attitude screams insecurities...not to mention going into enemy terrtory begging for attention...Did your laker buddies throw you out(did'nt pay the rent, huh..)  or dissert you???

    yup we know how that worked out...... when the refs gave you 20 more Ft's to get you back in the game when we missed our starting C and Ray/Sheed were limited and playing thru pain.... but C's still led by 13 late.

    Celts bravery in 'winning' the finals only to have it stolen by Stern and injuries was a black eye on the sport.

    LA is NOT as good as last year... even w/ Bynum having a real knee injury last playoffs and just a sore 'only a crybaby would mention it' knee injury now. You were not as good last year as you were in '09. Our clubs are 1-2 in titles yes... but 1-1 vs. each other. The Celts won by 39 in a gm 6 laugher, LA by 4 in a game 7 humiliation of the sport.

    If you rated the 4 teams by how 'historically good' their finals perfomances were on a scale of 1-10 it would look like this:

    1. '08 Celtics - 9.4
    2. '10 Lakers - 7.7
    3. '10 Celtics - 7.6
    4. '08 Lakers - 5.3

    I'll take our combined average of 8.5 over your combined average of  7 anyday. We still need a rubber match.

    In all the finals matchups since Bird/Magic entered the league in '1980 (62 teams) I can only think of FIVE teams the '08 Lakers probably beat. That being the '09 Magic, '07 Cavs, '02/'03 Nets, '99 Knicks... pretty sweet how 3 of your  nine titles since Magic came against 3 of the 5 WORST 31 runners-up in that time.

    Talk about luck. Not to mention the refs giving you the Sacramento series in '02 just like the Boston one last year.

    The '08 Celts vs. '09 Lakers would have truly been a fun series. Celts won 66 to LA's 65 games... and I'd have taken them in 7 at home. As for the present, C's can be better than the 2010 team that essential won the finals if/when Shaq returns, but Miami and Chicago loom... two teams who we know are better than LA (on paper and reg season results) but who don't have the playoff experience they or the Celtics do.

    It will be an interesting two weeks.

    As for this notion of the 'weaker west' it is YOU who has HALF A BRAIN

    If you only brought up that the hornets (w/o West) are a better team than NY (w/o Amare/Billups for 75% of the series) then you'd have a leg to stand on.

    New Orleans overall? Ha.

    The Celtics would have beat New Orleans in 5 b/c you are throwing Fish/Blake at Paul and we'd throw all-Defensive 1st teamer Rondo at him. KG/JON would eat up Emeka/Gray (unlike shrinking violets Pau/Bynum) and we have multiple wing scorers, not just 1...

    With everyone healthy on all 3 teams New Orleans would be in a battle w/ NY and Philly for the 5-7 seeds.

    Re: The only thing that the Lakers loss to NOLA accomplishes is...

    Chicago, Miami and Boston are 3 of the 4 best teams in the NBA right now. OKC is the only team in the West in the top 4.

    LA finds itself with Dallas, Portland, Atlanta, Memphis and New Orleans fighting it out on a pretty equal pklaying field to determine who the next 6 best teams are in trying to make a top 10.

    By my count the East has 75% of the top 4.... but drops to 40% of the top 10.

    That is a wash in my book.

    Asia,

    It is likely that the Spurs, and the Magic will bow out in the first round.

    Lets hope that the Lakers have more in their tanks than that.

    This is the same thing that happen last year...  Boston went through the field in the east with relative ease and look how it turned out...  just keep on watching the game... you guys got alot more on your plate to worry about with the heat than the lakers with NOH or Dal and Por in the 2nd round...   Check back again in couple weeks when your series with the heat is about over then we will see...

    Well asian boy, good thing I have been working on my crossover... Ima make James look foolish out there.  I also have been draining three's too, so I'm feeling pretty confident.

    I don't know where you get this absurd idea that the western conference is harder, or that the celtics had an easy time of it last year.

    celtics beat the 2 best teams in the league last year, orlando and cleveland, in epic, hard-fought 6 game series without homecourt advantage.

    lakers won two 6 game series where they were never seriously threatened at home, and swept their second round matchup, all with homecourt advantage.

    to get to the finals this year, the celtics will once again have to go through the 2 best teams in the league, chicago and miami, on the road.

    at this stage, the lakers likely opponents will be dallas and memphis, with homecourt advantage in both.

    the only time the eastern conference is easier is in the first round.
