Surprised to see so much Big Baby hate.  I've felt that the Celtics got the best of the deal but I though Baby was doing pretty well there.  Guess not.   A lot of ref complaints but I thought the refs missed stuff on both sides but didn't favor either.  Of course, what would a CFTOS be without a Paul Pierce wheelchair reference?  My favorite comments are in bold.  What are yours?  OMG! Sounds like there are plenty of Celtics homers in attendance at Amway Center tonight. I don't expect to win this one, nonetheless I think the if Magic can limit the turnovers we have a chance. I'm looking forward to this game as I want to see how we stack up against one of the premier teams in the Eastern Conference. I wouldn't say that Celtics are a premier team ATM at 7 and 6, but they are tough and if Rondo gets going it could spell disaster. Jameer wont let us win..he always takes over against Boston Without Dwight protecting the paint, I fully expect Rondo to absolutely shred our defense. Trap game for Boston could lead to a nice win for our Magic! I'm hoping KG bullies Vucevic. I think it'd be good for Vooch I hope playing Boston doesn't mean 30 fga for Baby Glen is going to finish with 50 shot attempts If Pierce is out there, Pierce’s man has to stay GLUED to Pierce. Jameer, don't try to split a double team when Rondo is on the floor. He will steal it. Bad call on Pierce. Bass > Baby so far BBD looks completely uninterested in the game already, and it isnt even one quarter in. Rondo making Nelson look silly. Rondo holds the ball for 22 seconds, passes it to a player that throws up a prayer, assist I love how the ref just blatantly ignored Redick's foul attempt on Lee just now We still love you Courtney Lee Sullinger -- the guy I wanted the Magic to take. Barbosa is on the Celtics? Hm, good fit Yeahhh that Barbosa guy, might wanna cover him. Just a thought..... They seem to have a roster full of quick guards With Rondo, Terry, Lee, Barbosa, and Bradley when he comes back No Pass Bass with another jumper The Magic coaching staff should hire a designated "ref conversation rebuttle guy" who’s sole job is to follow the refs around the sidelines and when an opposing coach/players starts jawing at the ref, they jump in and rebut/mock whatever they are saying. They wouldn’t complain for the Magic in any way, simply disrupt any conversation the opposing side attempts to have with the refs. So we'd troll the opposing team and the refs? I can get behind this. Barbosa and Rondo are the leading scorers? Didn’t expect that to happen. As usual, Celtics getting away with everything. I cant stand pierce, retire fool This pro-Celtics officiating is getting annoying. These refs are trash. But its a Celtic game so it isn't surprising. Pierce getting greedy. He already has a few very questionable calls that went his way. Not sure what they're complaining about there. Why is ayon and mcroberts playing more than vuc and harkless? We're trying to showcase them for Pheonix in trade for Gortat? We need to kill that Gortat mess. Word on the street is he's losing minutes to his backup Jermaine O'neal why would we want to trade for him if we don't have an all-world point guard to make him look better than he really is? Rondo picking us apart, everywhere. BBD IS BAD Man Rondo is too good Man I hate Paul Pierce. I swear if that's not a flagrant... Geez. How old is that ref? Ok so you got Josh Mcroberts guarding Paul Pierce and he's getting blown by every single time. Uhh Coach? Getting abused by sullinger, terrible JJ became a much better player than clee. I'm impressed What is bbd doing.. God I hate this clown.. Can't decide if we made a mistake passing on sully. I like Nicholson but he doesn't have the nba body that sully has JJ vs Jameer in a Jello wrestling match, who wins? Big Baby. I'm sure he likes Jello. BBD is the Jello. Stop sullinger already Pierce trying to draw a foul. What a punk. Always. Surprised we didn’t see the wheelchair. He flops verbally The league should penalize that as well Rondo is such a stat padding idiot Officiating could be the difference here. There is no reason for them to favor us.. No star, being Boston ect. I fully expected it. BBD could be the difference. Cant shoot.. Cant play D.. Cant reb.. At least he is getting to the line. Dear god trade big baby I get so sick of Garnett and his fake tough guy BS. Well I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to fight him... HOW IS THAT NOT Y UNO??????? All you hear is hand slapping skin. I mean that is awful officiating. Clearly hear it and see it. Easy, Dick Bavetta is both death and blind I was afraid of this. Classic Jameer. He makes some shots and then thinks he can shoot it from the parking lot. Pierce with the pump fake/head flail and he'll get fouled.. Book it I hate Baby so much oh my god In the 3rd quarter, KG scored on BBD early on, I'm not 100% sure but it looks like KG mouths "you don't have what it takes"...I'd really like KG to forward that in an e-mail to JV for us. Something from a peer in the league like that might help to sway JV's decision with regard to playing him. KG is a beast. One of the greatest PFs of all time. I hate Paul Pierce. I agree never liked him he flops on offense and dwfense but always gets the call. Lmao kg swatted when he was on the ground Haha my god Garnet is such a tool. And to think I liked him when he was in Minny. Can we go to hack a rondo? Good thing he (Rondo) can pass, he's a horrible shooter BBD with a 3? I just threw up…. I know it doesn't matter, but a part of me loathes that Big Baby ended up with a 3 there. LMAO love it a Big Baby 3.....................its like might as well hand the ball over to Boston at that point. On the bright side, we took a good team to the brink, but still lost so Operation Tank is unaffected. Orlando Magic 2012-13 Tanking Guide. Rule 1 - If a game is close, give Glen Davis the ball and he will take a three point attempt. Thus ensuring victory to the other team. Sucks to lose games like this, I cant stand that team. It annoys me how many idiot bandwagon Laker and Celtic fans show up at our games. Trade Big Baby for a 2nd round pick in 2084. At least we can laugh at Rondo [Discuss on CG Forums!]
