If you know anything about Miami, or watch First48, you know Miami is not all South Beach, perfect tans, and hot spots. Just over the bridge you can find some pretty shady people and no so safe areas. Didn’t think the American Airline Arena would be apart of that group as the Celtics found out their bus had been robbed by some local Heat fans.
When the Boston Celtics climbed on the team bus in the bowels of American Airlines Arena late in the regular season, the mood had been thick with anger and disgust over finally losing to the Miami Heat. Only now, several sources said, the Celtics discovered a deeper, knifing violation: Someone had snuck onto the bus and stolen cash and belongings Continue reading Celtics Team Bus Robbed by Miami Heat Fans→
Some player, if it’s really a player at all, has come forward, kinda, to put Celtics Forward Kevin Garnett on blast. Calls him a punk and coward. Not sure about you, but I think KG is a pretty tough guy, out the mouth of course, but don’t let the slim guy fool ya, I’m pretty sure he’d handle a couple people at once. Check out what Player X had to say (courtesy of ESPN Boston)
Garnett is a punk and a coward. I know, I know. Easy for me to say behind this column. Don’t worry, I’ll tell him to his face, too. And I’m not the only one who thinks that: If you’re not on his team, chances are you hate the guy. You can learn a lot about him by watching his eyes. If he’s talking to you — and he’s always talking — he avoids eye contact. My advice to other guys in the league: Stare him down, and he’ll retreat. From what I’ve seen, he’ll never mix it up with a player who’s bigger than he is. Personally, I think he’s scared to fight — like a playground bully who barks but doesn’t bite.

I come to you as a fan of the game, an avid viewer of the regular season and playoffs and we have beef. It is only approaching the second games in the first round of the 2011 playoffs and I am going to need you to do something about these refs. If this continues, we will have major problems sir. The horrible calls that have been called in such close games have made me question the validity of the outcome and if you have something to do with it.
Game 1 the Celtics barely clenched the victory over the Knicks that had held the lead for the majority of the game. With a minute remaining in the game the refs made 2 crucial calls. The first call was the offensive foul called on Melo as he stood beyond the arch. This is not the call you make with the game on the line and less than a minute remaining. This call eventually led to a wide open 3 by Ray Allen which won them the game. But might I add the reason Allen was so wide open was because the refs didn’t make a call on Garnett tripping one of the Knicks players.Both of these calls could have possibly resulted in a different outcome if called correctly.

Today is a big day in NBA. Here in Orlando was supposed to be the matchup between MVP lead runners Dwight Howard and Derrick Rose. Instead, the game airing on ABC today at 1pm will most likely be a battle of the second string as I don’t see Rose playing many minutes in today’s game. The Bulls still lead the Eastern Conference while the Magic have clenched that #4 seed and don’t seem to be advancing. If both teams advance a pass the first round we can count on these two teams battling it out to head to the Eastern Conference Finals.
Tonights game between the Lakers and Thunder should be quite exciting as well.With a win tonight from Oklahoma City they can come move just within a game of the Lakers to claim the #2 seed in the Western Conference. Continue reading Race To The Playoffs and Top Seeds→
