    Heat just had their banner raising and ring ceremony and the two teams are getting set to take the court. I look forward to hearing a lot about the refs in this thread. :D

    Should be a good one though. Looking forward to seeing the new guys with Miami as well as Boston's overhauled roster.

    Cold shoulder from KG when Ray went to hug Doc was pretty interesting. Undoubtedly, Shaughnessy et al will clobber KG for it tomorrow.

    I really hate Garnett's guts but I can't blame him for that. I'd do the same thing.

    The team should be much better defensively once Avery Bradley is healthy.

    Self-pity is an effective, albeit temporary, motivator.

    i caught a couple celts games on nba league pass in the pre season

    they look like they're ready to win their division again, and face the heat in the east finals IMO

    Hate to say I called it but, Shaughnessy's column headline this morning: "For joining Heat, Allen gets cold shoulder." First line: "Does it really have to be this way?" Knew it was coming.

    For two sides that sell themselves as defensive powerhouse there wasn't a lot of defense being played.

    Yeah that was a little concerning to see. The Celtics were clearly out of rhythm yet the Heat kept giving them open look after open look. A JV high school team probably could have scored on Miami last night.

    As for Boston, it looked like a lot of missed assignments and some confusion out there, which is to be expected of a team with a lot of new faces. Nobody is going to kill Boston for not coming together immediately like they did with Miami in 2010.

    Kontra, you must be in hog heaven. Celts (still) can't match the firepower of MIA. For the life of me, I don't understand why Ainge is so high on Green. He is not good. Celts need to trade for Josh Smith, asap.

    It's always good to get a win against a hated rival, but Boston needs time to gel. Just like Miami did in 2010. Again, nobody in the media is going to crucify them for not gelling by opening night like they did with this Miami team upon it's conception.

    With good reason. When you get in the front of cameras and start talking about winning 5 or 6 championships and you haven't done a damn thing, then ya, haters are gonna hate.

    And minus four more they are a bust by their own standards. Let's see how rayray plays down the stretch, that's been his problem the last three years...

    They're in their third season. And you're severely underestimating the shooters we have on the perimeter.
