  • Sorry Greek God of Celtics Basketball… but I gotta side with any team that has Dino Radja on it!

  • G4L

    I dont know why but I’m sticking with BigMck.

  • Johns frontline is beastly, thats really the only hope he has of winning this thing
    but talk about two teams that dont match up with each other, I think chuck wants to play nellie ball with a lineup of hondo, bird, pierce, allen and rondo
    overall im going with………Chuck
    That could change though if you told me that reds coaching the greeks

  • This is great.. I can’t wait to post these comments in our locker room. My guys will use this for motivation!

  • Orb

    I’m assuming that’s the sideline announcing crew? And congrats on spelling 60% of your starters correctly.

  • nick

    paul pierce on the bench. are u fucking kidding me! WOW, those old white guys aren’t half of what the Truth is, lets get serious guys

  • ha ha..another Faker’s fan that failed the GED test..lmao

  • That was alot of fun last night-great concept and can’t wait to see how the sims play out.

  • John if you do pull this out ill be extremely impressed, but i just think the computer will tend to favor Chuck and all of his guards in the stats game
    but you cant teach height so you never know

  • I’m still in shock that Dino Radja is on one of these teams. Absolute shock.


    Yup that Laker fan messed up big time, i`m a Big Laker fan and im not the typical laker fan who will go crazy, i respect the Celtics, I gotta agree with that laker fan who messed up though
    C – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
    PF- James Worthy
    SF- Elgin Baylor
    SG- Kobe Bryant
    PG- Magic Johnson
    Wilt Chamberlain,Shaq,Jerry West,Wilkes,Coop,Goodrich,George Mikan and many more
    Yup that Laker fan said it right any all time laker line up would smoke any all time celts lineup

  • Red’s got better starters but Bigmcks got a scary good bench squad (aside from dino of course)

  • G4L

    So I was going to post something… but I completely forgot after checking out that Amazing picture of Adriana Lima next to my Comment box. WOW!
    I’ll take all 6 of those girls on the left over redsarmy & Bigmck’s team…
    I can see it now.. 176 to 12. Tough loss girls… Lets hit the showers!!

  • G4L

    Random I know, but true!

  • Bird and Havlicek equals game over

  • Bas Rutten Jr.

    Easily BigMck.

  • another tim.


  • another tim.

    yeah, but this wasn’t forming ONE celtics all time team it was TWO. so…
    maybe the lakers could have an all time LA team vs. an all time MN Lakers team for those 5 championships you all keep claiming. that might be fun.

  • Word up!

  • Antoinew8

    Reds Army wins going away. You drafted bad BigMck. Too many wings and no PF starting. I know larry can play that but you’re loosing out in the rebounding big time. If i were you, i’d start KG at the PF then have Sam Jones coming off the bench, but because you drafted bad and already have Pierce coming off the bench for scoring, you’re stuck with what you have. Plus DJ as your starting PG, you sucked at drafting bud. You sucked bad. And i can see with your gluttony of more recent players, Pierce, Allen, KG, Rondo, Radja, you just might be a young idiot. I myself am young, but know the history of the team, You should’ve asked me to draft against you Reds Army, i would’ve at least gave you a run for your money. And where the hell is Bailey Howell on either of your lists. Bad all the way around.

  • RedsArmy – better starters. BigMck – better bench.
    It all comes down to the last possession. RedsArmy up one, Larry Bird has the ball. Either he sinks it to win or Bill Russell rotates off his man for a block as the clock expires.
    I hope the simulation ends with an exact 50-50 split.
