@PaulPierce34 It’s been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now on to Memphis

Yes, it was a pleasure to watch Pierce, Ray Allen and the rest of the Celtics play with a chip on their shoulder in beating the Miami Heat 112-107. The final score makes it seem like this was a much closer game than it really was. The Celtics led wire-to-wire and were never in danger in this one.

  1. That column about Dennis and Callahan almost made me barf……..especially this line >>>

    "“It’s an unhealthy lifestyle,” Dennis admitted. “Think about getting up at 3:45 in the morning. When the alarm rings, there are some mornings you absolutely want to cry, you’re so tired.”

    Oh how my heart bleeds for them. Real tough job getting up that early and then having to put in a long work day 4 WHOLE HOURS of sitting on their ass's and flapping their gums. They deserve more money for sure. Hey Dennis you know what else is unheathly? Being 40 pounds overweight, try workin' on that.


  2. I threw a dig at Bucher last night on Twitter (@StantonSweet) and he direct messaged me, very defensive about his claim that the Celtics are the league's "most obnoxious team". I don't get why this year is the year the media has decided to crusade against trash talk. I also still haven't heard a valid explanation as to why the media isn't ripping apart all the egotistical quotes from the Heat, yet a very PG, clever quip by Pierce is a flaming arrow.
