Default Boston Celtics...

With the birth of the Bigger Three of Miami, I'm starting to like the Celtics (or. I hate them less than in the past who knows...)...
Maybe it's the arrival of Shaq & Nate Robinson that makes me have sympathy for them, maybe it's their chemistry.
I like their style of play more and more, they fight on every possession and produce a great "team basketball".
I've hated them with a passion in the past few years (especially Garnett attitude & Pierce), but now I want to see them beat Miami. And they will IMO.
Am I the only here? Is it Serious ?

Just discuss (or ban me)

MYself, if the Raptors dont make it to the playoffs. Which is highly likely.
I will be rooting for the Knicks or Chicago. I have been fans of both teams in the past, during the Jordan and Ewing and Sprewell eras. Its gonna feel good to be a Knickenbocker fan again.
I hope the celtics and Miami burn in hell this post season.
Peirce, Garnett are the biggest babies in the game and Lebron just attracts the hate.

kg aside, i've never understood the hate for the celts. especially pierce, who is a freaking warrior and exactly the type of player the raps are in desperate need of. maybe it's because i grew up a bird and walton fan, but when i look at the celts, i see a battle tested, rugged playoff team that knows how to win, plays as a group and builds everything outwards from suffocating defense. that's a prototype for quality basketball and playoff success. kg aside, i just don't understand the hate.

I love watching the Celts.

They never, ever take a play off. Yes KG may be a douche, but he's still fun to watch on the court and what he's able to do.

Plus, Rondo is a lot of fun to watch too and they play some magnificent team basketball.

Here's a fun fact! The Raptors have accounted for 1/4 of all the Celtics losses this season!

They are 22-4, and we are one of those 4! (Also, one of the 22, but that seems less relevant)

I hate KG for his attitude and disrespectful conduct against opposing players.

For some reason, our players tend to get injured facing Boston.

And some of the hate got to the with the fact that we can never beat them.

so, other than kg, you hate the celts because they are tougher and better than the raps? isn't that more of a reason to respect them?

Teams I hate, Miami, Boston, NYK in that order and I hate Pierce slightly less then KG. If the Raptors don't make the playoffs the only team in the east I'll be rooting for is Chicago. Other teams that'll have me watching are mostly in the west, LAL, OKC, Pheonix.

I hate that stupid guy in their broadcasts. The sheer amount of homerism makes me want to throw stuff at TV. And Im not talking about when they play Toronto. Even if they play a team I dont like, I end up wishing the Celtics would lose because of that dude.

Seriously I do hate Garnett too. He is such an idiot. If it wasnt for him I would probably like the team. When he joined I started hating Pierce too. Ray Allen is great and even though I have always had unwarranted dislike for Rondo (not his fault he is playing with Garnett and Pierce), he is pretty damn good player. But I cant believe some one actually likes Nate

Bingo.

If you're a fan of the game I don't know how you CAN'T like the way that they play the game.

Same holds true for MIA right now really.

I actually love watching the Celtics purely to see Ray hit threes. I mean, I love the way they play defense, and move the ball, and play the game how it should be played, but, man, Ray Allen cranking threes, nothing better. Even if it isn't a close game, and they're up 10, all of his threes still feel like daggers to me.

I will cheer for the Celtics only when they play Miami.

Between Pierce the whining ferret and KG the self anointed king, I canstanza them. And now Nate is trying to fly (anyone notice that Pierce let him "die" on the floor?) and Shaq and his over the top stupid personality (his TV show is embarrassing) I hate them even more.

This big three team has acted all entitled and are riding Russels and Birds legacy tail.

And Tom Heinsohn should be banned from broadcasting. No bigger homer exists.

I've tried to like them, (yes, I would love 20% of their hustle in the Raps) but I just cant.

haha.. while i hate that guy as well, i can't let some TV schmuk dictate what i think of the actual team. Afterall, i did get through the Swirsky years.
