The playoffs are finally here. The Celtics are the underdog in this series vs the Knicks. They are in an unfamiliar spot, coming in as the 7th seed and needing to win on the road in every series. I'll never bet against the Celtics, though. The 1969 Celtics taught me never, ever to count this team out, no matter what the odds are against them. I guess the ESPN "experts" didn't get that message, however. Here are their picks.
Thank goodness for Chris Forsberg who still has some faith in the Celtics. I'm not all that upset about the ESPN "experts" not picking the Celtics. Remember back to that 2008 championship? Going into the Finals, here is how their "experts" picked then.
Actually, after that year, I feel a little better when they pick against us. In case you haven't gotten the schedule for the games and TV coverage, here it is for your reference.
The city of Boston could really use the lift a win in this series will bring. Hopefully the Celtics come out focused and ready and get it done. Never count out the city of Boston and never count out their Celtics!
