Found January 07, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Maybe the greatest win of the season so far? I haven't really had a lot of ill will against the Knicks, but maybe that's because the Celtics always beat the Knicks. Reading through the comments, it's pretty evident that that's why. The Knicks fans hate the Celtics. It's great to see how much they fear Paul Pierce. It seems like Pierce always has great games at Madison Square Garden. Anyway, enjoy what Knicks fans said.. Top Three: lol.. jr smith pulling a mark sanchez.. i have a bad feeling pierce is gonna rip our hearts out for the 100th time I would LOVE for Melo to punch K.G right in his mouth. Not a supporter of violence, but love how Melo refuses to back down from no man. Yeah, umm, about that... Didn't catch this. Thanks for the update. The Celtics being without Rondo while we're featuring both Melo and Stoudemire? At home in N.Y? I like our chances. Rondo is out, easy win baby!!!! If I were to sum up in one reason why the Knicks should fear ...

Comments from the Other Side - Knicks 1/7

Knicks fans have to be the most classless in the league.  They even have the Lakers and Heat fans beat for having the least class in the league.  They even beat the Nets fans even though they are now in the same city.   Any time you see fans wishing death or injury on a player, all class has left the building.   They really had no room to complain about the officials either...

Paul Pierce is about to pass Ray Allen on the all-time scoring list

Comments from the Other Side - Hawks 1/5

This was a very satisfying win for the Celtics.  I love it when there are a lot of Celtics fans in opposing buildings.  Atlanta seems to be the best for that.   Lots of Josh Smith hate.  I'm not really sure why Celtics fans are ready to give up a ton to get this guy when the fans that watch him night in and out don't like him.   A fun game and some fun comments. ...

Paul Pierce, Carmelo Anthony’s Contrasts in Style, Substance on Display in NBA’s Best Rivalry

One of the few items missing from Paul Pierce‘s repertoire is the lack of a trademark celebratory gesture. In more than 14 years in the NBA, Pierce has offered little along the lines of Jason Terry‘s “Jet” flight or Kevin Garnett‘s vicious chest-pound. He has nothing as subtle as LeBron James‘ superhero pose or as unconcealed as Russell Westbrook‘s primal yell. Whenever...
