    i think this series blows. the celts are now even with a team they would have steam rolled with KG and powe in the line up. they should have won the series already even without those guys but have been playing like **** unable to close out games. typical media hype calling it one of the greatest series every played. imho this series isn't even in the top five of celtics series ever played.

    Disagree. How can you call 7 periods of overtime in four games a lousy series? Just because our team hasn't closed it? No the fans and the media have underestimated the Bulls. The Celts aren't playing lousy. They're playing a good team evenly despite the losses of KG & Powe-which is not an excuse if we lose tonight.

    I look for the C's to outplay the Bulls in another close one at the Garden. If they don't, I'll tip may cap to the victors, and wish them luck the rest of the way. It's been a series that none of us will ever forget. GO GREEN!

    One of it not the best 1st round series ever. 4 overtime games.

    Rondo, Pierce, Big Baby, Rose, Gordon, Noah have all bettered their legacies.

    Both teams haven't laid down, and every game has come down to the final seconds.

    both teams have played very hard this is true. but the b ball being played is sloppy at best. nothing but missed free throws turn overs and silly shot selection. just because they are playing lots of overtimes doesnt make it a great series imo. it may be one of the great 1st round series but thats as far as i will go.

    Most entertaining series ever, perhaps. Not the best though, there's been alot of bad basketball on both ends. It's a shame because the Bulls are a very good team, just very poorly coached and young, leading to a bit of sloppy play. With KG this is a sweep, 5 games maximum. But if the Bulls let Gordon walk, score a dominant low post threat in the '09 or '10 offseason and find a half decent coach they could possibly contend with the Cavs/Lakers/healthy Celts, they're a very deep talented team.

    Pierce has hurt his legacy badly from everyone i talked to.

    Enjoy the moment

    Sometimes people really amaze me.

    I've actually read stuff from people questioning the greatness of this Celtics-Bulls series on the basis of Chicago's regular-season record. What difference does that make? For that matter, what difference does it make that Kevin Garnett has not played when we're discussing the historic relevance of this series? The games either did or did not unfold as we've seen them. They either were or were not superb sports entertainment. And we all know they were,

    It doesn't matter of the Bulls were 21-61, 31-51, 41-41, 51-31 61-21, or whatever, What matters is how they're playing now. Once again I remind people they are putting out on the floor a No. 1 (Derrick Rose), a No. 3 (Ben Gordon), a No. 4 (Tyrus Thomas), a No. 7 (Kirk Hinrich) and a No. 9 (Joakim Noah). That's a lot of raw talent. Whatever problems they had they don't have now. And they became a much better team when they added John Salmons and Brad Miller in that Sacramento trade.

    Why can't people simply sit back and enjoy the show? You can nitpick specifics all you want. But all the couldas, shouldas and wouldas are what make the enterprise worth talking about. If every team played a perfect game in every sport every time out, no one would ever lose.

    This will be a tough series for someone to lose, sure, but it's pretty obvious it will be tougher on the Celtics, who, Garnett or no Garnett, were expected to win and who have blown more chances to win games that they eventually lost than the Bulls have. So much for "experience."

    They should win Game 7. But if they don't, it would be nice if people would give the Bulls proper credit and move on. This series isn't solely about one team or the other. It's about two teams giving us the kind of sports experience to tell the grandchildren about. One of them happens to be a defending champion trying to make do without its true leader (Kevin Garnett) and an important auxiliary piece of its puzzle (Leon Powe). The other happens to be a relatively young team with some extraordinary talent that may have finally found itself.

    What they've given us is sport at its best. Anyone who doesn't appreciate that should stick with UFC.

    totally disagree. you must be very young and not have much to compare against this series. like i said its not even in the top five. that's my opinion but i will continue to watch this slogfest of a series. i dont give the bulls any credit at all. when they win the championship or go to the finals ill give them credit. im not impressed with them going seven games with a celtics team without KG and leon powe. i give last years hawks a sh!t load of credit. they pushed the eventual champs at full strength to seven games. that was impressive. i dont think how many over times a series has determines how great it is. and my grand children will here about many other series before this over hyped one will be mentioned. they will hear about the 1981 eastern conference finals against the sixers or the eastern conference finals against the pistons in 1987. bob ryan is a idiot and a part of the media hype machine.

    Consider the source. His Brady posts are schitzo. He's either a bizarro attempted stealth Boston troll or just a poster boy for kneejerk fandom.

    Of course the other somewhat troubling aspect of this thread is insano apparently has grandchildren...
