    he isnt gonna be ready for round 1... that doesnt mean he's gone for the entire play-off's.

    I heard the doc rivers interview live this morning on WEEI.

    BTW... Why not listen to WEEI instead of supporting that crappy network of Patriot haters? :confused:

    Dammit. That really sucks to hear. I guess that opens the door a little wider for Lebron. I just don't see them being able to get past the 2nd round w/out Garnett.

    He's made of glass.

    Trade him or just cut him.

    Although I can understand why you would hate on ESPN, but it isn't like Dennis and Callahan are remotely listenable anymore. They really should just give up sports and head down the dial to WRKO and talk politics full time. That is what they seem to like to talk about more anyway. I only tune in to that show anymore when Adam Schefter, Boomer Easiason, or Tom Brady is on.

    Sorry to highjack the thread. It does suck for the Celts that Garnett is out for the first round, but they are good enough without him to still at least have a shot to win.

    I think the Celtics can get by the baby Bulls at least. But they're probably going to get eaten up by Dwight Howard and the Magic without KG in there to crank up the defensive intensity. This is a pretty devastating development for the C's playoff hopes.

    it doesnt matter what round they lose in. i personally think they will go down against the cavs in round three. all i know is there wont be any championship without KG and that sucks.

    Can you imagine BB saying all that? No wonder the media loves Doc.

    Re: OT: KG to miss playoffs

    actually I kind of can.....Doc needs his team not to be hoping for KG to be the savior as he likely wont be walking thru the door. BB acted similar with Brady last year closing the door on his return quickly to not let it distract.

    I'm still waiting for Bill to acknowledge the severity of Tom's injury, I don't remember him ever doing it.

    This is all I could find:

    Q: Can you confirm it was a torn ACL [anterior cruciate ligament]?

    BB: We gave out all the information. That is what I have. I don't have a lot of medical details.

    You're kidding me, right? Dennis and Callahan better than Mike and Mike? :rofl:

    The fact that ESPN as a network has turned into sports tabloid should not be used as a broad brush to paint the Mike & Mike show which is one of the best national sports talk shows around. Dennis and Callahan is just awful.

    I think KG and Brady bring a lot of similar things to the table. Especially how they influence players around. The C's got better on the defensive end not just because KG was added but because he changed the mindset. He made them accountable on D.

    Same with Brady, players seem to be more confident when he's on the field. No one wants to screw up. Wether it be missing a blocking assignment or running a sharp route. Brady makes everyone accountable

    Re: OT: KG to miss playoffs

    Even though I'm a Pistons fan, I like the Cavs b/c most of my relatives are from the Cleveland area(and with the Browns sucking wind, it gives them a big reason to root even harder for the Cavs and Indians).

    This IS the playoffs, and ANYTHING can happen, you know. Remember 3 years ago, the Pistons had the best record with 60+ wins...but nonetheless, they crapped the bed a good one in the playoffs. Should have lost to the baby Cavs in the semis, only to get their tails handed to them by an overachieving Heat team in the ECF. Ditto 2 years ago - after almost blowing it to the baby Bulls in the semis, an overachieving Cavs team just handed it to them in the ECF.

    Also - while the Lakers SHOULD beat the Jazz in the 1st round, remember Salt Lake City has been a house of horrors for the Lakers. It wouldn't surprise me if this series goes 7(I'm predicting 6). If anything, they should have sat their starters the other night and given this game to the Jazz - otherwise, they would be playing a soft Hornets team instead.

    Pt being that NOTHING's a guarantee in the playoffs. When these teams play over a long series, they end up familiarizing themselves so much that it'll be easier for coaches to make adjustments. Look at the Cavs/Pistons series 3 years ago - after that 1st game where the Pistons were just hitting EVERYTHING, Mike Brown saw something on game tape and figured out how to stop their pick and rolls, perimeter jump shootings, etc. They may have lost the series, but Brown ended up giving Pat Riley a blueprint in the next.

    The only way the Celtics can win it all is if they score more points than the other team in 4 games out of a 7 game game series.

    Dude, if you've been on this board before, then you would have noticed that this member will occasionaly post a bigoted thread. That doesn't mean you should lower yourself to his level (Matt Cassel?).
    As far as the Celtics go, they will smoke the Bulls even without Garnett, tho, I'm of the opinion that they will fall to Cleveland which is better then possibly losing out in the finals against...............
    Had Garnett played his entire career in Boston he would be held as high as any of the Boston legends, which is saying a lot. The NBA player that Garnett most compares to is Russell. They don't get anymore intense then those two. If the Celtics are one and done, the trade was still worth it.
