Found May 03, 2013 on Celtics Life:
After the Game 4 win in Boston I thought about it... I even included a little Kevin Millar nugget in my post about the Knicks doubling Pierce, but I knew we still had a huge hole to climb out of. Then we won Game 5 and thought ‘man it's starting to feel more and more like that one time.’ Then Jason Terry talked about it in his post-game interview, quoting Millar. Then Mike Saver posted on how Terry and David Ortiz are neighbors and EVEN they talked it. Now we’re here, at Game 6 on our floor… our destiny is in our hands. The ball is rolling on another all-time epic playoff comeback, paralleling those 4 days in October. The cities are the same but the sports and players are different, yet everyone keeps coming back to the greatest comeback in MLB playoff history – even former Sox players who were on that team. 'Mr. Bloody Sock' Curt Schilling came out on the World Wide Leader, local branch, and talked about how both teams are feeling right now: “Theres no way both t...

Garnett: Celtics Need Additions To Contend

Kevin Garnett, who isn't a lock to return to the Celtics next season, doesn't believe the team can contend as currently constructed. "No, I think we need some additions," Garnett said. "That's obvious. Health hit us pretty hard this year, and I'm sure we're going to address that." A lot of what Danny Ainge does this summer will rely on whether...

T-Will: We don’t like them, they don’t like us

Terrence Williams was the only Celtics player to address the media this morning: “No, there are no surprises,” Williams said. “At this point, I don’t think either team likes each other. We’re all for our guys and they’re for their guys. When people wear all black and say it’s a funeral, a lot of us have people that died in our own personal lives. That’s not really...

Ainge: Celtics Face 'Very Hard' Decision On Whether To Buyout Pierce

Jason Terry’s Resurgence Key Domino to Fall in Celtics’ Mid-Series Turnaround

Jason Terry had to come through for any of this to work. The Celtics had plenty of “keys” to victory as they entered their first-round playoff series against the Knicks. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett needed to play at their usual All-Star level. Jeff Green had to provide whatever offensive boost those two future Hall of Famers could not manage. Brandon Bass had to be just as...

Jordan Crawford Defends Postgame Altercation With Carmelo Anthony, Says He ‘Would Never Trash Talk About (His) Wife’

Jordan Crawford is not telling anybody what he said to Carmelo Anthony after Game 5 that sparked a minor scuffle at midcourt. Crawford is more than willing to tell everyone what he did not say, though.

Celtics-Knicks Live: Kevin Garnett, Celts Riding High Going Into Pivotal Game 6

Boston Celtics rally but come up short, fall to New York Knicks 88-80

I had a recap written, a morose send off to a lost season, but like so many times before the Celtics made me tear the whole thing up. When Avery Bradley stole the ball and cut the lead to four I believed, in that moment I doubted the obituary I had resigned myself to writing and though the C’s came up short I wonder what comes next. When the Knicks’ lead ballooned to twenty I...

A Proud Loser

Losing, and the act of being a loser is often one of the most shameful and disappointing feelings one can feel, both as a player and a fan of that losing team. As competitors, whether it be baseball, basketball, or in the form of racing that I do myself, losing is one of the worst feelings one can endure. As the great Ricky Bobby once said, “if you ain’t first your last”. We...

Afternoon Delight: Death at a Funeral

When KMart called for a funeral for Game 5 he didn't perhaps clarify that it was for their own demise.  After all, that was when all their ******** and bravado died.  Great show, wise asses.  See you Friday night when you can repeat your sad performance of "Death at a Funeral" for the Boston crowd.
