I can't believe I missed this quote from Rashard Lewis:
"It most definitely adds fuel to the fire," Lewis said. "We don't
like that type of stuff. You have to be professional about the game of
basketball. We're a professional team and we expect them to be the same
"Those guys were jumping up and down, waving their hands at us,
saying bye, but it's not over yet; it's just 2-2," Lewis added. "We
could have done the same thing when we won on their court, but we're
more professional than that. They still have to win ballgames. The
series ain't over yet."
C'mon Rashard, you're better than that. I know this loss hurt you the most because Baby's clutch shot was right in your face. You also have a short memory. Loyal Red's Army soldier ToTheRuins reminds us of a regular season game last seaon when confetti reigned down after Hedu Turkoglu hit a game winner to beat the C's. One more question for Rashard: are DUI arrests professional?
The Herald's Ron Borges has a great column on the Celtics toughness:
The Magic got beat because the older team was more composed and worked
harder. They got beat because they got outrebounded even though they
have the league’s leading rebounder and defensive player of the year,
Dwight Howard, in the middle. They got beat, frankly, because Game 4
came down to mental toughness and physical toughness, and the Celtics
have a little bit more of both.
Where have I heard that before?
And these two clowns….
…have decided to stop complaining about the Big Baby "shove."
