We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here's a look at some enemy chatter from Miami.
The Miami Heat hit their lowest point of the postseason on Tuesday night but one young child was there to provide a "glass is half full" assessment despite the demoralizing circumstances.As the Heat walked off the American Airlines Arena court, having lost Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals to the Boston Celtics 94-90, a young child's voice was picked up by television cameras offering excited encouragement.The child repeatedly said "Good job! Good effort!" while clapping as LeBron James, Ronny Turiaf and Shane Battier headed for the locker room after falling behind the Celtics 3-2 in the series. The Heat conceded homecourt advantage with the loss and are now staring down a possible close-out Game 6 set for Thursday night at TD Garden.
Naive as this child's reaction is, at least h...

On the eve of Game Six of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, we turn to Green Bay Packers, Pro Bowl wide receiver, Greg Jennings for knowledge of LeBron James lack of closing abilities.
Yes. Greg Jennings.
When Jennings dropped by the Mike Heller Show on The Big 1070 in Madison, Wisconsin he was asked about LeBron not being a great closer. Here’s...
What an exciting game! I have to admit that I was very surprised that the officiating was even. Good job by the officials for the most part. But I know that the Heat fans didn't feel that way since they didn't get their usual +20 free throw advantage. It is just amazing how Heat fans turn on their own team and players. Wow! No loyalty whatsoever. My...
The Boston Celtics are one victory away from playing the Western Conference Champion Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals, and have done so without practicing in the playoffs.
The New York Times reports the Celtics last practice was in April before the Playoffs began. For the Celtics, watching film and going through game plans on day-of-game shootarounds is enough.
The condensed playoff...
Well, when I’m wrong, at least I admit it. I thought the Miami Heat had a terrible fans and it turns out I was wrong. They are there behind them 100% win or lose. When they lose, at least the team gave it their all, and what more can you ask for a team that was supposed to win seven championships?
While writing the last article about how much of a douche bag Dwyane Wade is and how stupid his glasses are, I drew a comparison to that of one Michael "Squints" Palledorous. Obviously Squints wore glasses similar to Squints, but what was not so similar, as I pointed out, was that Squints had the ability to close. I know you remember when Squints pulled the fake drowning...
Kevin Garnett has looked particularly "old" at times over the past couple of years. However, as he's shown this year in the playoffs, any talk of the Celtics big man being washed up may be a little bit premature. Garnett has apparently found the fountain of youth in these playoffs, as he's playing some of the best basketball of his career. Garnett enters Tuesday...
Thanks to JHB in the shoutbox for the find.
Twitter / Pflanns: Chris Bosh is still a game via kwout
Why would Miami play the guy if he's not ready to go full bore?
Either Bosh is ready or he's not.... or Spoelstra is BS'ing us and he'll play 34 minutes.
It goes without saying that a veteran squad like the Boston Celtics don’t exactly need to practice sets and situations on a regular basis. The core has pretty much seen it all but. Throw in injuries to Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Avery Bradley and it’s pretty obvious that Doc Rivers would want his team to get as much rest as they could possibly get during the playoffs.
Throughout his time in Cleveland, there were always rumors that LeBron James did not get along well with then-head coach Mike Brown. That seems to be the case anytime a team has several chances to win a championship and comes up short. If you ask Shaq, he’ll tell you LeBron never wanted to listen to Brown while he was playing under him. With that in mind, you have to wonder if...
*** WARNING: If you are superstitious, do not watch this video! *** Boston Celtics fans are pretty superstitious. I think most sports fans are. So, it’s hard to take even a quick sneak peak ahead at a potential NBA Finals match-up without jinxing our beloved Celtics. I wouldn’t dare do it. However, our friend Alex [...]
When I think 2012 Boston Celtics, two things always pop into my head – KJ and Hondo. How could they not? The Celtics would not be where they are today if not for KJ’s ferocious intensity, and Hondo is really the guy who makes the whole thing go.
The only problem is that I just can’t seem to remember when the Celtics acquired former Sun Kevin Johnson and long-time retiree John...
It’s the moment that Celtics fans have been waiting over a year for. It’s time for revenge on the Miami Heat. After the Celtics won game five of the EC Finals and are looking to advance to the NBA Finals tonight, fans need to show their support! Now is the time to make your purchase [...]
Listen closely and you can hear a fan that refuses to believe that the Miami Heat are finished as he continues to encourage the team after their 94-90 loss at home to the Boston Celtics. The Heat face an elimination game against the Celtics in Boston on Thursday. BREAK UP THE HEAT!!!!
And we now have even further proof that politicians don't live in the same universe that the rest of us do.
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is either really confused or doesn't have someone in his ear to tell him the proper names he is supposed to be talking about. And in a Sports crazed town like Boston, we are guessing that this isn't going to go...
