Boston Celtics: The End of the Pierce, Garnett, Allen Era

I was born in Massachusetts towards the end of the Larry Bird era. Never saw him play live. Only stepped inside of the old Boston Garden one time and it was to see Disney on Ice. There wasn't much of a reason for me to be a Boston Celtics fan. My dad was, so I was. The team didn't give me much of reason. The deterioration of Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parrish...

Secret behind Lebron James performances in games 6 & 7

I have said it time and again, especially after game five.  The media pissed off Lebron James and he took it out on the Celtics.  When the series shifted from Heat being heavy favorites to every media member turning on them, that was when the real odds came in with the Heat having 1-1 odds of winning the series, despite being down 3-2.  It's how sports works...

One word describes last night...Domination.

Say what you will about Lebron but he was fantastic last night.  Scratch that, he was unbelievable.  No, let's try this again, he was dominant. With 45 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists in a blow out game six victory to push the series to seven games, Lebron did it all.  He did so much so, that Wade didn't need to show up.  There isn't much to discuss here because...

Best fans in the world?

They have to be right? I don't recall anything like this? Don't forget, this is the same fan base that chanted "Beat LA" to the Philadelphia 76ers in 1983.
