[quote=molds13;65046]Worst trade EVER. I have no idea what they were thinking.[/quote] I guess they thought Iverson would give them that spark that would put them over that hump to make it to the Championship. Chauncy Billups is clearly showing everyone how crazy of a trade that was (Iverson is too).

Just looking at the Stones starting 5, there is no way AI could've fit into the lineup without them paying the price. It was a god-awful trade to begin with and as soon as I heard about it, I knew they were going to be in bad shape. Obviously Billups is thriving and they're kicking themselves in the *** now...
I'm seriously still as mad as I was when this first happened. And what's gonna happen next year, ugh, guess they'll have some money freed up though, what to do with it
The rumors circulating is that Detroit was on the verge of self destructing anyways I think it comes with the "Bad Boys" moniker, it seems like they just called this a lost season and are focused on rebuilding. I do think Iverson was a terrible choice though - what an absolute waste of talent. What are our thoughts about the Josh Smith showboat missed dunk at the end of the Atlanta game. I can see getting excited it's been an intense series, you want to put an exclamation point on a great game effort. I don't think there's anything wrong with entertaining the crowd, that's I think the fun part of watching sports- the poster/highlight reel making plays. Apparently people are saying that it was poor sportsmanship but I think the worst part was that he missed it - missing it made him look like more of an a** than attempting it imo. What do you guys think?

IMO the Hawks have a right to be excited and put on a show if they want. They have come a long way in the past few seasons. I remember going to a game and the stadium was half-filled because they sucked so bad. So I think it's cool that they want to do something they havent been doing in the past seasons, which is excite their crowd.
Bulls-Cetics...another overtime??? Geez.
RAY ALLEN. That is all. 3OT!
Ray Allen is unreal!
Why can't everyone finish in 4 games like the Pistons? I'm just saying. My friends said the Celts game was tied with something like 40 seconds left. I said, "Don't turn it on, if I watch it'll go to OT." We went to In n Out instead, then the bowling alley. Cut to 45 minutes later...triple OT. I want to drink myself to death. 95% of the people there are Celts fans for unknown reasons. Rondo almost goaltends. Everyone goes, "Oh shit, he's lucky he didn't get goaltend." (actual quote) At this point I want to smack someone. Everyone says to foul, I tell them they're stupid. Bad last shot. Bulls win. I clap and almost get accosted. I remind myself never to go to a bowling alley during an NBA playoff game. Note to self: if you're on the West coast, even if it kills you, cheer for the Lakers or else you stand a chance of getting your *** kicked...they don't mess around here.
The calls have been annoying, how is one person getting a flagrant foul for clothes lining someone then someone else gets suspended for an elbow?
I loving this series, I don't think any other series this year is gonna live up to it. Rondo's a dirty player though, and there were a couple of times when I wanted to reach through the tv and strangle Hinrich. I know this would be a completely different series with Garnett around, but for now I'm just enjoying the ride. Derrek Rose he may not be Ray Allen but he's rookie of the year and playing like a seasoned pro. @Hotboih yeah I remember when I was growing the Atlanta Hawks were one of the best teams, I still remember watching Dominique Wilkins in the slam dunk contests and going head to head with Jordan. It's nice to see them coming back.

If it wasn't for that, the Bulls most likely wouldve won that game. Last night's game was super exciting and D. Rose did perform well except when he missed those two free throws at the end of the game. It reminds me of those free throws he missed last year in the NCAA championship game. :no:
Alright..I have avoided this thread like the black death.... But calling Rondo out. He is playing to win an NBA ring. Leave him alone. He is a player. A monster. A machine. He will do what it takes to prove himself amongst superstars. Can you imagine being Rondo amongst his cast? Frak. Rondo is good. And yet he is the 4th, maybe 5th best player on this team? He will fight for our pride. All this Celtic hate. Maybe you guys need a "banner session" at The Garden... It is interesting how people need a reminder who the current NBA Champions are, or who the all time champions are with 17 rings..

I believe in doing what it takes to win but there's no way the officials shouldnt have called a flagrant foul on Rondo for what he did to Brad Miller. On a better note, he has really improved a lot. I remember when he used to be a wild little player.

I really don't think Rondo has been that dirty either, just playing hard. It's the freaking playoffs man! I don't want someone jogging down the court and hugging the other team! Maybe it is just the hockey player in me, I dunno, but I tend to think most bball fouls just come from players acting most of the time...On to game 7 then. Oh and molds, I will NEVER root for the Lakers while I am out here, even if I am being attacked at a bowling alley! Haha. It was so fun during the summer last year when I was working and got to rub it in everyones face when we beat the Lakers. Luckily I had one of the stock room guys on my side to help protect me ;) I also hate the stupid Laker flags on all the cars.

There was alot of Rondo hate last night, he was getting booed everytime he touched the ball. Tomorrow's game is going to be intresting. Hopefully the Celts will take it without having to go through three overtimes like they did last night (actually, as long as they take it I'll be happy). [SIZE=1]Bruins too![/SIZE]

[quote=Bacchus;66403]There are some bad men, bent on destruction.[/quote] Woohoo! They just cut to the Boston game now that the Ducks have lost :) Sadly they cut right after their 4th goal... I need to see these bad men tear through some people on their way to the Cup!
