Those two block/charge calls that should have gone against Rose that went against Rondo and Pierce completely changed the outcome of the game. What SHOULD HAVE been Rose's 3rd foul and 2 FT's for Rondo became a T on Rondo, 2 Ft's for Rose instead of Pierce, and a 5 point swing. Add in the ridiculous call Korver got at the half and that's 2 more points. 7 points alone on 3 bullcrap calls.

The officiating cost Boston 2 games in a row so far. Tonight was even worse than the NY game.

Marshall is already in midseason form when it comes to being the worst analyst the C's have.

Guys like Marquise are perfect to have on this team. Despite his setbacks, he continues to work hard and keep the right attitude. And the fact that he's so humble and thankful for everything makes his presence that much more special. I truly believe that if he can remain injury free, Marquise Daniels will be one of the best offseason signings in the NBA.

I love it...gives us another versatile player off the bench. Green can play the 2/3/4 and Quise can play the 1/2/3. Gives us a lot of options. Just hope this doesn't prevent us from bringing back Delonte.

Can you imagine Curry trying to play defense in the Eastern conference?? Makes me cringe. If this deal happens, we're so much worse. Rondo alone could make GS a playoff team.

First off, the Lakers didn't offer a better deal. Al Jefferson was and still is a better player than Bynum. And the draft picks AND cap relief was more than enough to make up for Odom. Second, you think the Lakers would win countless banners after getting CP3, you don't know how trades work. They would have to give up Bynum and Gasol/Odom to get him which takes away from the one advantage they have which is size. They're still screwed salary cap wise so they wouldn't be able to bring in anyone else worth a damn even after getting CP3. Lastly, Kobe is at the end of his rope even after his "legal" German procedure so LA would be giving up 2 of their 3 bigs to get a ball dominant PG that wouldn't fit with a shoot first, aging Kobe. In a couple years, it'd be CP3 and more garbage than he plays with in NO right now.

Actually, that looks like Ray Allen with his wedding ring. I like what you thought you were doing though.

Stern and the owners are fully responsible for this crap. My hatred for Stern has now reached an all-time high. And I now have no respect for owners who aren't competent enough to run their businesses and expect their employees, the players, to bail them out.

While I like the fact that these guys aren't sitting around like fat, lazy slobs a la Shawn Kemp these games are glorified And 1 games without the traveling/palming. Anyone can score when you're wide open all the time. I wanna see footage of these guys in a gym playing seriously on both ends.

Having to vote for either my favorite player of all time or my 2nd favorite player of all time was tough. PP is better athletically and could drive to the basket on Bird but if he missed, he may not ever see the ball again. In the end, I had to go with Bird but in a very close game. 15-13 as Bird couldn't pull away to win by 2 til the end.

The NBA has gone through four lockouts if I'm not mistaken and I believe Stern has been the commish for at least three. Know how many players strikes they've gone through?? ZERO. How the hell are players negotiating in bad faith when the owners are lying their billionaire asses off about how much money they're supposedly losing?? Not one fan in all the world pays $$ to see an owner. We all pay to see the players. If the owners feel that they paid too much for scrubs...NOT THE PLAYERS FAULTS.

I gotta say, I've disliked Rick Fox ever since he left Boston. His reasoning behind picking the #17 in LA was because he said he would win a ring before we won our 17th banner. Screw him. Seeing him get beat up by a wimp like Doug Christie was one of my favorite non-Celtics moments in basketball.

Wait...are you seriously trying to tell me that the Lakers and Heat don't have the most loyal fan bases?? GET OUT!! LOL.

This guy won't sniff Maine unless the Celtics play a pre-season game up there. Big 10 Player of the Year AND Defensive Player of the Year. And since his season ended reports say he has already added 5-10 pounds of muscle to his frame. Johnson will make it possible for us to give KG more rest so he's at his best when it matters. With Bradley, Delonte, Green, and Johnson on the 2nd unit we will finally have some serious athleticism with the ability to score as well as defend. Add a couple solid veteran bigs and we'll be in great shape.

The Celtics have more titles than the rest do combined. More Hall of Famers. The Greatest coach in the history of sports coached the C's. The worst thing is when the local media won't even stick up for us the same way they do the Sox, Pats, or now the B's. The Pats have the biggest bandwagon fan base in New England. The Sox fans were so used to being losers it sticks with them even today. And the B's fan base was limited to their hardcore little group. If you look at all of the titles in the last 11 years, the Celtics title over LA was EASILY the best one as it not only brought together 2 generations of C's fans but it brought back the NBA's greatest rivalry. Too bad people like Glenn Ordway and Michael Felger don't have a damn clue about the C's or basketball in general. They're too afraid to rock the boat and say anything controversial to defend the C's for fear the NBA, ESPN, or other major media outlets refuse to talk to them. The Celtics are without question the top dogs in this town, too bad most people aren't smart enough to realize it.

Outside of Jordan and Pippen, the 72 win Bulls team doesn't have a single player to match up with the 86 Celtics. And not that Pippen could do anything against Bird in his prime but he's the closest the Bulls would have. And with DJ covering MJ, MJ wouldn't have an easy time at all. The Bulls wouldn't stand a chance against our frontline. Rodman would be a non factor. Kerr?? Please. Kukoc?? Please. It would be an embarrassing rout.

I can't see us wasting another pick on a PG when we have Rondo, Bradley, and hopefully Delonte. I still say draft JuJuan Johnson, Jeremy Tyler, or Nikola Vucevic(sp), or if we're not drafting bigs go after a 2/3 combo like Marshawn Brooks. PG is a position of strength for us.

HEY GUYS....Did you all hear about the new Lebron James IPhone coming out?? You can only keep it on Vibrate because it has no rings. LOL

What a shock...Breen conveniently forgets to mention how Bynum and Kobe injured Perk in game 6. And even more conveniently forgets to mention the criminal FT disparity in the 4th quarter of game 7 that handed LA their title*. As far as these 2 clowns go, wasn't there a story just a few weeks ago about how Lebron woke up with a cold and it made national news?? And Wade's "injury" last night sure looked career ending like they played it out to be. 2 douchebags climbing to a new level of douchebaggery.

No thanks. Winning a dunk contest and being an athlete with no fundamentals is not what we need in the post KG era. Jeff Green is the superior player already and is humble enough to fit in in Boston. Josh Smith is awful for this team AND town.

Oh I can think of one flop off the top of my head that makes this look like a foul. It was Robert Horry vs the Jazz. Check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ukde193ivM And then you can basically make a highlight reel of flopping off of Derek Fisher and Manu Ginobili.

Perk is doing what a great teammate does. But it doesn't change the fact that Westbrook cost OKC the series. When you have the best scorer in the NBA on your team, you should NEVER shoot more than him. Durant should be the one shooting 30 times in a game. Next year OKC's #1 offensive set should be the Pick and Roll with Harden and Durant. Have Westbrook as a decoy.

Glad someone else is saying it now too. I have been pointing out the DISGUSTING FT discrepancy Miami has been getting in each playoff series. They beat the 76ers at the FT line. They sure as hell best us because of the FT line. And now they beat the Bulls, with the "MVP" Derrick Rose, at the FT line. My only hope is Mark Cuban does what we all expect him to do and talks about the officiating publicly.

I would also rather see JR Smith over Jamal Crawford. He's bigger, more athletic, stronger, and probably more explosive of a scorer. And the potential for him to be a better defender is there. Smith is the perfect candidate for us as he clearly isn't fitting in with Denver anymore and he needs to improve his stock to get one more decent pay day. Put him out there with Jeff Green, Delonte West, Avery Bradley, and Nenad Krstic and our 2nd unit would never go through scoring droughts ever again.
