A die hard fan, a relic from the 70's and 80's, when Larry walked through that door..... is back after today. Yes, I admit it, years of crappy basketball and I stopped watching. Now living in Kansas, I tried to get into it all year. But it was today that got the old juices flowing again. Man, I have missed great basketball. Paul Pierce turned in a Bird-esque legendary Game 7 performance today, not just the scoring, but the defense, the diving for loose balls, the leadership. Give him his due, he was amazing. But to beat Detriot, they will need Ray Allen.
