LOL! I'm sorry, but Iverson needs to stay far away from the Celtics. What is up with Ainge and him showing interest on OLD players. We seriously need some young legs for the C's or it's going to be another year of watching the Celtics run out of gas in the last 5 minutes of the playoff games.

Congrats to the Bruins! They did something the 2011 Celtics couldn't do... Win it all.

Lebron aggravates me. I hope he NEVER wins a single ring in his NBA career and will be known as a failure for the rest of his playing days.

Looks like Shaq is genuinely serious about not playing again in the future. Goodbye Shaq!

Am I the only one who has stopped watching the rest of this season? It would be hard for me not watching the Celtics win it all... Man, just when you thought this year was it. The start of the season and how well they were doing, as well as that Knicks sweep... then it just crashes down. Argh.

Clever idea... POORLY executed holy crap.

You gotta admit... Heat fans are seriously one of the least classy fanbase in all of NBA. Their fans do not deserve the sort of success the Miami Heat (which I have to admit, I am rather surprised with how well the Heat are doing).

Actually, his presence in defense could have kept Wade and Lebron from slashing so much (which killed the Celtics). It's a shame that we got the Shaq that has reached the peak of no longer being able to do anything.

I think he's just anal to the fact that his Spurs went home much earlier than expected. Gotta say... the Spurs have been totally overrated beyond belief these couple of years.

I thought Krstic played well in Game 5. Too bad Doc was too stubborn to play him in the earlier games.

Totally forgot he was going to be a free agent. Didn't have my coffee yet. ;)

I hope they trade away Big Baby. Something about him annoys the crap out of me. The fact that he states he is a starter after having only one good year when he covered for KG. He doesn't have the body to play more than 30 minutes... Just trade him away and get some good pieces.

Ainge is going to pull the trigger. The Celtics window has officially closed for the Big Three. We need healthier younger players. It was tough to see Green screw up so much but he's just a kid who's new to the system and trusting him to become clutch at the end was just too much pressure... Luckily, I prepared myself for this loss. I knew it was going to happen when Miami started their 16-0 run. Unfortunate loss which will end a disappointing Big Three era that was only able to win one championship out of a possible 3-4 championships. (sighs)

I hate to say this, but at this point, the X Factor for the Celtics is Big Baby. Where did this guy go? Where is that sweet jumper of his? His knack of being able to hit the paint and score? His ability to cause charges? This guy has been completely invisible so far in the postseason and he is one of the many reasons to blame for the Celtics losing these games that the Celtics SHOULD be winning.

I like the optimism but I have to say this... I gotta see it to believe it. The Celtics have played careless in their three losses against the Miami and I think it's just Miami's tough defense causing it. The chances of the Celtics winning THREE games in a row, playing consistent Celtic basketball without turning the ball over (Rondo is a pro at turnovers...) and playing better defense (Bosh getting 20 points is fucking inexcusable) and offense (KG, go to the damn paint!) is low. Anyways, guys... the Celtics seem exhausted so far... even if a miracle of Gods occur and the Celtics win this series, they will be completely pooped against Chicago/Hawks and even the West Champion (which I believe will be Dallas - and Dallas has the Celtics' number). This is obviously not the year of the Celtics. Call me a pessimistic douche all you want but just make sure you think realistically or else you will break down in tears when the inevitable happens.

I am actually not surprised that this is happening. Doc and Ainge saying to all of us that Shaq was getting better and he'll be back in no time... Now he's pretty much gone for the rest of the playoffs. Sorta makes me remember when KG got injured with those bone spurs and Ainge/Doc told people that he will be back in the playoffs. The lying is frustrating and trading away Perk might have been a bad idea. It was a risky trade, to be frank. I would have loved the trade if we got Green and Ibaka - instead of Krstic. Oh well. *sighs*

This IS Glen's last chance to prove himself or all of his accomplishments he has done for the Celtics will simply be forgotten. Every Celtic site out there are discussing trade possibilities with Big Baby already. Big Baby has given us a lot through the years, but this shit play he's been giving the Celtics is pathetic.

They have the right to share their own opinion about The Trade. If they liked it, they can like it. Personally, I'm not sure about The Trade, after all Kendrick Perkins was going to ask for a lot more money than he rightfully deserves on extension day and Danny pulled the trigger to bring in younger and fresher legs to a Celtics team that was getting tired in the regular season.

Shit happens. The Celtics could have won if Rondo didn't screw up on an easy layup attempt. Even I could have made that shot. Whatever. If the Celtics manage to win three games in a row vs Miami, they will be true Celtics. One game at a time. They MUST win the upcoming game and they could possibly force a Game 7 decision.

I think the Big Three will definitely feel unsatisfied, even when they reach the Hall of Fame. The fact that they only won one championship together will haunt them in a while because they did have the ability to win more than 2 at least. Unfortunately, injuries and age got in the way... Miami will definitely be enjoying their Big Three, due to the fact that they are in their prime. We can make fun of them all we want, but they are most likely going to be the 2008 Boston Celtics team for about 4-5 years until age catches up to them as well, but at least they will win championships during that time. Argh, so depressing last night, still depressed now.

Jake, next time use paragraphs. It was painful to read your wall of text...

He has Bosh Spice defending him and he still doesn't take advantage of it. I'm starting to think that he just doesn't have the physicality to play a game after another with consistent offense.

Nope, I have to go with that open layup miss that Rondo managed to screw up on.
