Judging by the reaction on our message boards this morning, Celtics fans are taking last night’s lottery letdown pretty hard.

Reading through the hundreds of responses, many fans blamed the Celtics for “tanking,” others accused David Stern of rigging the lottery, and some threw their hands in the air and vowed off the green forever. Oh, and there were a few who saw the glass as half full, pointing out that the team still had a top 5 pick.

In an effort to combat that collective groan we’re hearing across New England this morning, we present to you our list of the top 10 funniest reactions from Celtics fans this morning on our message boards.

10. Tommy doesn't get a Tommy Point for this. Donnie Wahlberg wouldn't even give you a "Donnie Point."

9. Can we trade the pick for Telfair again, I think he will be better this time around.

7. It’s like that episode of Seinfeld when George got the job with the Yankees and landed the babe, while Elaine's life fell apart. At the end of the episode Elaine realized "I'm George!" The Pats were our pathetic, long running losers, and the Celtics had it all going for them. The Celtics are George!! And those Seinfeld re-runs will continue to be more interesting to watch than they are.
