    First off that is a direct quote from the writer of the article, a die hard Pistons fan Jamele Hill. I do not know her. LOL

    Fellow Celtics haters enjoy. Its one of the rare times you will be able to read an article about the Celtics by a Celtics hater on ESPN of all places.

    The rise of the Celtics is certainly good for the NBA. Some competition in the Eastern Conference is also good for the league.

    Man, I hated the Celtics in the 80's when the Pistons were trying to get past them. It's harder to hate them now, especially with Antoine Walker gone from Boston...

    I like the fact that the Celtics are the team to beat and I will tell you why.

    Would you rather have D-Wade and the Heat? Howard and the Magic? Lebran and Cleveland? Remember reading all the immature smack from Artest/O'Neal and the rest of the Pacers when they were good?

    At least Celtic fans know how to act for the most part and you would have a hard time finding 2 more players with better character than Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett.

    There has to be an enemy right? Matter of picking ones poisen really.

    There are all levels of enemies.

    Some you might trash talk
    Some you might rumble with
    and some
    well you get the gist of where I am going.

    Its like the Hatfields and McCoys. As long as there is any reason for a conflict it will be exacerbated when you have a long history of conflict between the combatants.

    For a long time Pistons/Lakers fans this conflict goes back 30 plus years. It was quiet for a few years, but the now the old wounds have been brought to the surface and the scar tissue is starting to tear.

    Personally I would rather rumble with anyone in the East other than the Mean Greenies. Too many bad memories, that best be kept lying like a sleeping dog, at least from my perspective.

    One of our biggest downfalls this year is the lack of nightly competition in the east. Portland and LA have progressed so well because they play against superior comp, which ultimately helps progress rather than hinder it. Some of these EC GM's need to get it together, we are too unprepared right now because they suck so bad. We need better sparring partners.

    Thanks for the compliment. I am glad that its sounds a song, any song, even a bad country song.

    Do you know this country music joke?

    How does a cowboy get his girl back?
    He plays the song backwards.

    If you don't get it you got to listen to some C&W love songs.

    I guess you guys are right about needing better comp. Personallly I'd rather walk all over our conference. But respect our oponent.
    Pistons seem to play better in the underdog role anyway. They're more intense when they can slay a dragon.
