There has been 16 quarters of basketball played in this series, and Boston has played well in MAYBE five of them...they're shooting horrible, their passes are off target, their interior defense has been VERY poor, they are missing layups, garnett has been terrible in most of the games and Rondo can't make a free throw.
This is the WORST basketball the Celts have played in the entire 2010 playoffs, yet they are a home win Sunday from being up 3-2 heading back to LA....If the Celts can right this ship right now and play CELTICS BASKETBALL in game 5 I think LA is in serious trouble...especially because Boston for some strange reason is playing well away from home this postseason...I think its obvious whoever wins game 5 wins the series, and i'm thinking Boston will finally put together 4 quarters of great basketball in game 5 and be up 3-2 heading back to LA.
Just a homers 2 cents.
sports, hollywood, political, etc.....also list the ones you've met who seemed to be good peeps.
Drew Bledsoe: complete douchebag when I met him at Pats training camp back in 1998....it was during "fans day" no less at Patriots training camp...he comes walking out for the afternoon session, and a very large group of young kids are lined up against the gate where they are supposed to so they can meet players and get autographs...he realizes all these kids are standing there, and i'm sure he started thinking about the fact its "fan appreciation day" and he is REQUIRED to mingle with the fans, he throws a little temper tantrum and hurls his helmet like 20 feet all pissed off that he is being inconvenianced to sign autographs for 20 minutes...definately left a bad taste in my mouth about this asshole that day....with the brady situation, trade, etc...I think he got what he deserved.
Kevin Mchale: what an asshole this guy is.....i'm at the georgia dome a few years ago for the SEC tourney....he's there as a scout i'm sure looking at talent, he's president of the T-Wolves at the time...i'm from Boston area, and a huge, longtime Celts fan especially from those days of Bird, Mchale, DJ, Parish, etc...I grab a pen and my game ticket-stub and I see him leave his seat and walk up toward the concession...its an empty hallway basically, he was just strolling along, not on the phone, not with anyone in a conversation, not going in the mens room...I figure its a PERFECT time to just say hi real quick and have him sign my ticket...I say "hi kevin, i'm a longtime celts fan, especially from your era i'm from the boston area, do you think you can sign my ticket?"....he makes this face like I just told him he's being sued for a million dollars, swipes the ticket out of my hand and scribbles his name, then basically flings it back at me and walks off without even an expression, nothing...he did sign it, which I guess other pricks wouldn't even do, but the way he did it, I can tell you now that he is a complete jerk-off.
Andre Tippett: his daughter and mine both play AAU girls basketball, and he lives near a huge sports complex outside the boston area....this is where i've bumped into this prick a couple times, and I learned my lesson that you don't even bother saying hello to this man...this guy is not friendly....he will not even shake your hand if you put it out to him....he's another one who just gets pissed off if you recognize him....god forbid.
Cam Neely: this guy is the salt of the earth...I bumped into him in bar in boston called "daddy's place" back in 1991 after a game the B's lost to the Sabres....ths guy was drinking all night, accepting any autograph, accepting any drink that anyone put in front of him, and any person in the entire building that stopped to talk to him, he would stop and have a full conversation with...this was a very solid dude.
Craig Sagar: put aside his annoying courtside reporting and awful colored suits....this guy is a fking party animal ....i've hung out with him twice in Atlanta because he was business partners in a chain of restaurants down there with a couple friends of mine...this guy LOVES to drink beers all night, and he's a loud, funny and colorful person....we were high fiving watching beautiful girls walking by us inside turner field, this guy is a fking blast to hang out with...and i'll say, too, his wife is a fine looking piece of ass.
