    What in the world?

    What about the Colts?

    What did they do?

    Does Doc want the Celtics to lose in the playoffs for the next 7 years in the hopes that they'll win the championship in 2014?

    I didn't....

    but you make it sound like Doc gave a speech about the Colts team that won the superbowl.

    He couldn't have possibly done something like that... did he?

    No, he just said that Dungy said that the reason they finally beat the Pats was doing the little things.

    ohh like getting major, game-changing, b.s. calls and no-calls in their favor, in all playoff games, for the past 4 years.

    Ok thanks, im glad i understand now.

    At least im not bitter or anything.

    (jeez, if Brady was their QB, they'd have won the Superbowl every year with the favorable calls.)

    BabyDoc proves, once again, that he's an idiot.

    Somehow, someway, he's going to eff-up this series for us.

    I totally agree and had to hit the rewind on the DVR a few times to make sure I heard him right. I don't like Doc...he seems to have fallen as* backwards into a pretty good team. I especially find myself not liking him after the Dungy props.

    The other comment that made me think of the Pats was when Kobe picked up his 2nd foul and Jeff Van Gundy said that this is the only sport were a few calls can totally change the outcome of a game or the way it is played.

    I disagree. No call can change a game like Defensive Pass Interference. Ask the Colts.

    PJ,

    What do you think...is Paul Pierce the most explosive offensive player in Celtic history? I think people sometimes forget his torrid stretch where he set the franchise record for most consecutive games with 30+ points. And he has broken his own record for most FT in a season.
    There is only one Basketball Jesus, but Pierece has beacon the only light in a dark era of the Leprechaun.

    Before this thread gets moved, let me say that Pierce may be their most explosive SCORER. He would have to be up there with Bird and Havlicek. But a few other players, namely Bird obviously, have been better overall offensive players.

    I love PP because he's clutch, he understands basketball history, and he's only been a Celtic his entire career, through terrible and good times.

    Just a stupid, moronic move by Rivers, especially KNOWING he was on camera when he said it. Somebody should slap him.

    You are right on. I also must add that for a few years, I thought Reggie Lewis was going to be what Pierce is today.
    Perhaps the greatest Celtic 'potential' scorer of all-time never made it out of Draft week.:(

    I don't think he was a regular drug user. I thought he died the first time he tried coke (plus whiskey).

    Yeah i thought i heard that he wasn't a druggie, but he just tried cocaine the night he was drafted and died.

    that sucks.

    Yes, Len Bias is a top 5 all-time player in the ACC.

    I think PatJew is correct in saying that his cocaine use was (reportedly) his first and he was taking substances way out of his league. I think anyone who has watched ACC basketball can tell you the 'all-time' discussions start with David Thompson, Len Bias, and of course, MJ. Head to head, Bias outperformed MJ in some epic battles.

    No Keegs, you are right on.
    That is what made it even harder to accept. He was not L.T. or Roy Tarpley.
    SI did a nice story with him on the cover...I had it in my 'scrap book' of Celtics SI pictures.

    Oh my God.
    This is looking like a melt down far beyond the AFCCG 2006.
    Doc Rivers may be the worst coach in all of sports.

    OK, thank you jeebus for letting us get that one.

    Not pretty, but I'll take 2-0 any day.

    Keegs,
    We are having surreal weather conditions in the Northern Suburbs...something strange in the air with this game.
