I was surprised at how emotional i got. Even though i hadnt follwed them much the last couple of years while living in SC and Kansas, all the memories of growing up with the Celtics and the glorious 80's came back. when they reached the moutain top of #17, i thought about Reggie Lewis. I thought about Len Bias. I thought about how Len Bias was supposed to be that spark to help us win #17 in 1987. I thought about Reggie collapsing on the court, moments after playing better than he ever had and taking over completely for Larry. It was supposed to be Lenny. It was supposed to be Reggie. Then the Pitino years. And then the 2001-2002 resurgance under Jim O'Brien. Antowain Walker. Did anyone think about him? it all flashed in my mind within seconds. So it brought tears. I am so happy for Paul Pierce, finally, he gets the love he has always deserved. And i remember Reggie.
