    Celtics Getting Team Concept Down Very Well
    By: Bob George

    Bill Belichick can be seen often at Celtics games. He is usually smiling, and with good reason....

    I believe that Doc Rivers is the best coach in Celtics history not named Auerbach. When you consider coaches such as Heinsohn, Russell and Fitch (wasn't a huge KC Jones fan), that covers some territory. I think there are many similarities common to Doc and BB.

    Great article BOB!

    I can't help believing BB finds how the Celtics are winning to be very
    satisfying. Underdogs because most don't understand that the team
    concept, implemented and taught by a coach that understands it,
    can be the trump card that levels the playing field. Talent is
    surely needed but it isn't the only thing.

    BB understands this and it is fundamental in his thinking. Team is why
    the 2001 PATs beat the greatest show on turf. They believed in each
    other and in what they were taught by BB and they became Champions!

    The C's believe in each other and what they've been taught by Doc.
    I wouldn't be surprised if they win tomorrow and even go on to be
    Champions. They got the spirit of a Champion.

    Yes it is a different sport but winning principles are the same.

    As much as I would love to see King James end another season in embarassment, I wouldn't
    bet even one dollar that the Cs can seal the deal. I wouldn't trust Danny, Doc & the rest
    as far as I coud throw them.

    Concur. :mad:

    KC Jones ~ the Don Zimmer of BasketBall "Coaches." :rolleyes:

    The Depth of Talent on the 80's Celts was INSANE. :eek:

    But Jones NEVER developed The Bench, and he ran The Big 3 into the DIRT. :mad:

    Reminded me a LOT of the 1977/1978 Red Sox, who had an AWESOME bench, before Pedro's Punching Bag traded half of them away and let the other half ROT while he destroyed Butch Hobson's ELBOW and wiped out the REST of the team. :mad:

    1 ~ If the Celts had a COACH in the 80's, there's no WAY we don't beat the Lakers in the 1985 Finals...and we probably beat them in 1987, as well, for a FOUR Peat!! :D

    2 ~ If the Red Sox had a MANAGER in the 70's, there's no WAY we don't beat the KnickerBockers ~ the team that calls themselves "Yankees" :rolleyes: ~ for the AL East and then win the World Series in 1977 AND 1978. :eek:

    3 ~ Hell, for THAT matter, if the Red Sox had anyone but Racists and IDIOTS running the team from 1919 to 1978, there's a bone dry MINIMUM of 11 ~ ELEVEN!! ~ ADDITIONAL World Championships we would've won, in between, just by our team's Owners not being insufferable MORONS. :mad:

    But, hey...I'm not BITTER!! :D

    What do they have to do before you "TRUST" them?
    Win the finals?
    With your trust or not they will give it their best.
    With key players lost and with key players injured playing though a grueling play off schedule they are STILL HERE!
    And you got the nerve to suggest a lack of trust .... who are you anyway?

    LOL. Since he routinely messes up Patriots news too, I thought this was an appropriate place to post this.

    I just heard a clip from Mayor Menino about how this Celtics team has a lot of heart. He mentioned "KJ" and "Hondo" as the heart and soul of the team. You can't make this stuff up.

    Go Celtics! Go KJ! Go Hondo!!

    I freakin' love this Celtics team and their grit and the whole storyline of them outplaying the pompous Heat (in the last 4 games). Been glued to this series. I don't use the word "Epic" much, but man you could hardly script a better feel-good sports movie than the Celtics pulling this off tonight, in the garden...the team everyone wrote off as too old and too tired, 15-17 at the break, against the "not 1, not 2, not..." - this is just too much fun :rocker: Better than '08, if we can go all the way, and the most fun I've had watching basketball since the Bird days.

    Hope they get another banner. (BTW, sports trivia question: why does the NBA logo randomly change from year to year on these banners?)

    Cool PS, thanks. Can I ask: how'd you know that? I googled it 7 different ways and couldn't find the answer. Though I did find this, which I thought was interesting:

    Interesting, though it looks like the guy's theory is wrong.

    The Celts HAVE TO win this game tonight and put the Heat away for good.

    I don't like their chances in Miami should they have to go to game 7 .
