    I'll give you that Joe messed up on drafting Darko in '03 and Curry sucks, but LB basically forced Joe to let him go after his crazy antics and we would not have won this year with Billups. We should have broken this core up a year or two ago because now we are stuck with two old men as PF and C and a bunch of scrubs as big men. But that's another thread.

    That Orlando game was such a choke job. If I was an Orlando fan right now I would be pissed. Real nice comeback and fight from the Sixers..that was a great game. There's been some real good games in this first round already.

    Right now the Heat are getting blown out by the Hawks. I like this team they mean business. Horford is such a beast, too bad he didn't fall to us in that draft, haha.

    I liked the extremely pissed off look on his face when his rookie coach called timeout with 15 or so seconds left and gave Orlando time to sub and prepare. And they ended up in the exact same formation as they were in when he called time.

    Typical playoff choke by Stan Van Gundy/Magic. Too bad. I really wanted them to succeed. I wouldn't be surprised if the Sixers win this 4-2.

    I was very impressed by Rose, but I still think the Celts will get past the Bulls.

    Sadly, watching the other games reminded me of the fact that we are the weakest playoff team in the East and we are where we deserve to be.

    :(

    That's probably true, but did we really look as bad as the Heat did??

    Could we have given up an 18 pt lead like the Magic did?..possibly/maybe:sssh:


    Or did we appear to be just spinning our wheels like the Blazers, Jazz and Hornets did just to stay within reach??

    I wish TNT could spare me the closeups of Kevin Garnett's phony-ass mug. He makes me sick. Such a punk. We were treated to f bombs all night long by this classless jerk.

    That's what I was thinking too, but Bulls must win the next two. Boston is still dangerous.

    Luck or did Ray Allen just earn his paycheck?

    I have been pulling for the Bulls but that game took an amazing performance from Ben Gordan to stay that close. Even without KG the Bulls have problems matching up.

    I doubted Vinny, but he's been showing up Doc.

    Leon Powe was injured in game 2 last night so now he is out for the season/rest of playoffs with a torn ACL...with Rondo nursing a sprained ankle, these guys are primed to be beaten if not this round, certainly the next..

    Celtics Leon Powe out for season with torn ACL

    Not looking good for them at all... I would be surprised if they get past the Bulls with the way they have been playing.

    Since Orlando's not 100% healthy either, there's a good chance Chicago makes it to the ECF this year. Wish we had that opportunity. Oh wait! :doh:

    Chicago is one Lebron broken leg away from the Finals.

    Detroit is one Lebron broken leg away from taking their opening round series to 6 games.

    It sounds bad when you put it that way.

    umm will the Pistons be the only team in the east that fails to win a game in this post season....??? I hope not.

    Put their 0-2 record compared to everyone elses 1-1 split on the board before the game and have Bill Laimbeer and Rick Mahorn come in and give them a pep talk...could translate to a victory and then build upon that...

    Go Boston! Yes, Go Boston!

    It's amazing what a lack of KG + plus residual bitterness over the Bulls game can do.

    edited to add;
    Besides the Bulls will be a cakewalk for the Cavs
