I think alot of us are prideful of this team, they played hard and were true professionals the whole time. KG is clearly one of the best centers in the league and to lose him would be crushing. Ray, who I would also love to get back, is more expendable. He'll be coming off surgery and hopefully be willing to stick around for less than the full mid-level. Also gonna be very interesting to see what happens with Jeff Green & Wilcox, and all the other free agents like Peaches & Dooling. DA has a busy summer with 2 1st rounders and only a handful of guys on next year's roster.

It's over now, but I'm proud of this team and the way they carried themselves this year. I never expected them to come within 8 minutes of going to the finals, and I have to think if we had even just Avery Bradley back, out of all the guys we lost this year, it might have been different. If this is the end of the Big 3 era, I'm grateful for the championship they accomplished and the one they almost got. I do expect KG back next year and hopefully Ray too. I have no respect for the Heat and hope they get beat by Perk and OKC. Gonna be a very exciting off-season for DA and the C's and I'm excited about the future,

A bit dissapointed in that I just didnt feel they had a sense of urgency tonite. I still think they can bounce back and win this series though.

I really detest Mike Breen, and refuse to listen to him & VanGundy (another Knick homer)...they both obviously hate the C's and have their tongues so far up LeBron & Wade's arses it's not even funny. At least VanGundy is inciteful, I just don't like him doing C's games. Bass, by the way, needs to break DWades hand the next time he puts in between a two-handed dunk and the rim.

Catepillar- You have to watch this game on replay, one of the most insane games you'll ever see, I think at least partly cause it was on the road.... This team has not stopped amazing me since the All-star break, and now they're on the brink of shocking the world!

The Captain! Right in Lebron's face & he got fouled! C's are playing top-flight defense , Ray & Paul are seemingly healthy, and Rondo & KG are dominating. I'm gonna sleep with a smile on my face if I can sleep...

Take that Miami!!! This team is destined for more greatness. This is fate. Game 6 is Game 7. Amazing win, total team effort......even Pietrus, who has been killing me, made more plays. The Garden is gonna be insane for game 6! GO C's!

I'm still shakin too......Holy crap that was an insane game. If that last play was what Spoelstra drew up, I'm glad we have Doc! If MVP voting was based on or included playoff perforance, Rondo would win it every year. KG was his usual iself, he's just amazing in every game. We needed every one of Ray's points tonite, but the best thing is he's shooting well again. On the negative side, the missed free throws are driving me crazy, and at one point I actually wanted Pietrus to foul out (although he did come through with the 2 offensive rebounds). And the captain needs to stop fouling out of every game. Doc needs to remind Bass what he does well. Game 5 is the one they can take down there, the C's have their number now, just need to keep the foot on the gas and stop blowing leads. Go C's!

I hope Doc's right about KG coming back. I just can't imagine the team without him anchoring the D and keeping everyone engaged. GO C's!!!

I thought Keyon Dooling played great too.....his defensive energy is the closest thing we have to Avery, and it was contagious tonite. Quisy certainly earned some time in the next game, he was smooth on both ends. In the end though, Rondo once again showed everyone what a uniquely amazing game he has. Props to Ray for fighting through the injury and playing a solid game. Go C's!

Sue the NBA? What planet will that work on? The C's lost a close game and the refs didn't do them any favors. Stern is a prick and water is wet. Let's just get over it and move on to tonite. Justin, keep recycling, it does matter. That's all I have to say other than go C's!

Wally Z is now, and has always been, a frat-boy jackass. KG is hall of fame guaranteed, the only way Wally is getting in is with 25 bucks.

If you had told me earlier the C's would would need 2 long jumpers late in the game from Rondo I would have worried. That was an amazing finish by an amazing player. This team has come a helluva long way since the all-star break, and have nothing to lose heading to Miami. I thought the whole team played hard tonite, especially Ray, who I thought did a great job staying with Turner. As beat up and tired as we are, just need to win one down in Miami.

I'm sure everyone remembers exactly where they were and who they watched it with. The look on Walton's face is absolutely priceless. Go C's!!!

well done KWAPT! (as usual). Go C's!!!

Sucks for the C's but Avery will end up being the best thing that happened to the C's this year. The kid has incredible heart and is clearly missed in the line-up against Philly. The fact that Blake Griffin made 2nd team makes me want to puke.

I hope I never have to see that fat mfer again as long as I live, it's disgusting... and how the guy keeps getting pub is unreal. He's a cheeseburger away from death, and by the looks of the guy, he aint gonna see too many more birthdays.

Agreed! Just ask Q Richardson if the Captain likes to talk it up. Philly can cry all they want, but what it comes down to is they got their asses kicked in their own gym. Doc respects their shooting enough to leave a couple of starters in. More of the same Friday night. Go C's!

They seem to be gaining momentum again after that loss and the defense was superb at times. At least Avery has his legs under him and can still inspire with his D. When Philly beat Chicago, they danced on the scorer's table like they'd actually won the championship or something. Collins too got all dramatic. Then I heard him tonite telling his guys to keep their heads up, which they were unable to do. The 6ers are done, they just need to be finished off in a timely manner. The C's are focused again, and the 6ers can't do anything about Rondo or KG. I'm looking for another win Friday night. (You knew it was one of those nights when Hollins actually caught a pass and laid it in, right?)

They're the 2 best of the modern era. To compare them record-wise is basically comparing the Spurs to the T-Wolves. McHale, in his prime, was as good as either of those guys, just my opinion.

Not sure if they're looking ahead or just tired, but they need to stop waiting till the 4th quarter to play well. As long as they win a game in Philly, all is well. Would love to see them put 4 good quarters together sometime very soon. Avery is a freakin warrior!

I would expect Bosh back at some point sooner than later. Both the C's & Heat better pay attention to the series they are in cause I don't think either game 1 W was very decisive. Go C's!

Doug Collins knows basketball but isn't a great coach. He's pretty good at building/developing a team (Chicago & Detroit) but not neccessarily the guy who leads them to greatness (Chicago & Detroit). He's a rah-rah type coach that players get tired of after 2 or 3 years. Having said that, nobody could have done anything about KG this past Saturday, the 6ers played a good game and came close.

I agree, Sasha is ready if needed.
