The Truth: “… we’re going to win it all.”

Chuck - Red's Army September 25, 2009 Uncategorized 46 Comments

Via Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports:

“Before the season even started last year, I was asked, ‘What is
going to stop y’all from winning it all?’ ” Pierce said in a phone
interview on Thursday. “The first thing I said was, ‘If we’re healthy,
we’re going to win it all.’ And I’m going to say it again: ‘If we are
healthy, we are going to win it all.’

“I honestly believe that. I think we’re the best team in the NBA, healthy.”

Anyone have an issue with his bold statement? I sure don't, because he's right. I'm sure these commits well upsit a lot of Lakerz fanz (the mere thought of our Laker trolls and their stupidity dilutes my intelligence), but we can't expect them to admit the truth.

Pierce also said Kevin Garnett played "a couple of days" last week:

“It wasn’t like he was out there [screaming] and dunking,” Pierce said. “No, none of that. But he was out there on the court.”

And one other thing; don't bring up the 2008 championship:

“When someone brings it up, I don’t want to hear it. That’s in the past.”

    I think the entire league wants someone to beat the Laker’s so that their trashy fans will shut up.
    Ugliest winners of a championship I have ever heard.

  • baltimoresest01

    I am a Laker fan and it doesn’t anger me. I don’t see why he would say otherwise. Any of the top tier teams should have that same feeling. However, Allen Iverson thinks that too but we will just let that one slide….

    Its just the Truth speaking the truth; no team is more talented 1-9 on their roster than the Celtics, and the starting five is the best in the league. When you’re “biggest weakness” from your championship season is quite possibly the best player on the team (Rondo) and the other players have not fallen off that much, than its pretty obvious: the Celtics are the best team in the league when healthy.

  • Joseph

    The truth: the Lakers beat the Suckdics twice last season with both teams at full strength – once in Boston and once in L.A.. What does Pierce say about that?
    The truth: In the 2008 finals, the Lakers were without TWO starters (Bynum and Ariza). When the Lakers mention this, Suckdic fans say its an “excuse”, but when Boston mentions that they were without KG last season during the playoffs, it’s the “truth” – typical hypocrisy from Boston Suckdic fans.
    The truth: Injuries are part of any season in professional sports. You have to live through them and continue to compete. If a player gets injured, then its up to the remaining team members to pick up the slack and carry on. If the remaining team members can’t pick up the slack and win, then they simply weren’t the better team.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5ebb21970c JD

    Yeah, but we’re talking about the future, where Boston actually has a bench this year. LA beat the Celtics twice last year, fair and square, congrats, etc. But this year, I think that the Celtics are going to be much better, and it seems as if the Lakers are going to be about the same as last year (lose Ariza, get Artest).

  • as1084

    before you call lakes fans stupid, why dont you learn how to spell. its “upset” not “upsit”. lmao. and you celtic fans are hilarious. best starting 5 in the league?? haha! hell the spurs starting 5 is better than the celtics. also the most talented team 1-9?? do celtics fans not even bother looking at other team;s rosters? i love coming on this site when i need a good laugh. mission accomplished!

  • JDMVP

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    This is crazy
    Im a laker fan(im pretty sure people are gonna oohhhh what are laker fans doin in here trolling bla bla)
    anyway number 1 as a Laker fan even with the addition of Ron Artest it is not a 100% sure ball that the Lakers are gonna win a ring again hell its not even 100% sure that the Boston Celtics will win a ring this year anything can and i mean ANYTHING
    Also Celts fans before talking shit about LA
    why dont u guys worry about the cavs and magic and other teams in the east.
    As u guys said regular season matches dosent mean shit so even if we win or u guys win 2 straight against the lakers it wont matter

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5ebb21970c JD

    Rajon Rondo> Derek Fisher
    Ray Allen < Kobe Bryant
    Paul Pierce > Ron Artest
    KG > Pau Gasol
    Kendrick Perkins = Andrew Bynum
    Glen Davis < Lamar Odom
    Eddie House > Jordan Farmar
    Marquis Daniels > Shannon Brown
    Rasheed Wallace >>> Than anybody else the shitty Laker bench can muster up
    Well, there you go you fucking faggot, seems pretty fair to me.

  • Danno

    Does anyone in LA speak English properly?
    Jesus Christ on a cracker, it’s like “special class field trip to the internet” in here when the LA fans show up.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5ebb21970c JD

    By the way, for all you Laker fans who can’t count, that’s Celtics with 6 advantages compared to the Lakers’ 2 advantages.

  • NineSevenEight

    “before you call lakes fans stupid, why dont you learn how to spell.”
    It writes itself, really.

  • JDMVP

    are we in school?is that how people in boston say it now?
    OHHHH BAD SPELLING. their soooo stupid

  • KY Celts fan

    the truth: Orlando beat Lakers twice during the regular season. But we all know how the season ended. So there’s that argument out the window.
    the truth: are you seriously comparing Bynum and Ariza to KG? two mediocre players to one of the greatest PFs of all time? argument two out the window.
    the truth: nothing to disagree with here as this is a universal reality.

  • angsty

    dumb arse laker trolls. bah.

  • Danno

    There are so many things wrong with this post it’s kind of sad.
    It’s not just spelling, dummy. I feel dumber just trying to read the retarded gobbledy gook you post here. You sound like Tonto from the Lone Ranger.
    And yes – when you’re trying to speak in public to people you don’t know personally, it may as well be like being in school. Unless you consider looking like an idiot in public to be “cool” or something.
    Should we get you a bib and a hockey helmet too?

  • King James is the Best

    you guys have to go through the East first so don’t even be thinkin about LA yet losers
    Mo Williams 17ppg > Rondo 11ppg
    D. West 11ppg < Allen 18ppg
    L. James 28ppg > Pierce 20ppg
    L. Powe 7ppg < Garnett 15ppg
    Shaq 17ppg > Wallace 12ppg
    Ilgauskas 12ppg = Daniels 13ppg
    Its ur best players against our best players and with LeBron we beat you guys easily and plus even if you do get lucky and actually win by one point in a game 7 match up then you still have to go through the Orlando Magic who has Dwight Howard
    that RAPED your little ass holes last yr in the Eastern Finals, Wallace can’t match up with Howard and we can now cuz we have Shaq so your shit hole team is NOT gonna win a ship this yr.
    Plus Mike Brown is a ten times better coach anyway, him and Lebron turned our franchise completely around and Doc Rivers? well he shoulda got fired yrs ago whenever the fans hated him, but like a bunch of
    Bangwagons they are they started lovin him when u guys lucked out and picked up 2 great players and start winning

  • Danno

    More exercises in “How to Kill the English Language”.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/redsarmy Red’s Army

    You’re really going to only look at ppg? I’m pretty sure most people in the league would rather have Rondo right now than Mo Williams…. especially after Williams’ choke job last post-season.
    I particularly like the last line, though. Boston “lucked out”…. as if Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett were a couple of guys driving through the area when their car broke down so they just decided to find the nearest basketball team and ask for work.
    The Celtics traded players away… one of which is yours now… to get these guys in. It’s called making smart moves. That’s what GM’s do. They make trades, draft players, sign free agents. When one of those moves works, you can’t just say “oh… you guys got lucky.”

  • Danno

    Exactly.
    By that explanation we should say that Cleveland has been extremely unlucky, because they sucked for 20 years or so. Then they got “lucky” in drafting a player who brought the team some money and popularity, but hasn’t won shit yet.
    Our guys were free agents who wanted to come to Boston. Lebron was drafted so he didn’t have a choice, and he’s leaving as soon as his contract is up.

  • Lakerhater

    Thanks for making my Friday, almost pissed my pants reading this.

  • Lakerhater

    Stunning analysis, is that you hiding behind that moniker Jeff Van Gundy?
    Two things you over looked:
    1) there’s this kid named Perkins on the Celtics roster you might want to check out, he doesn’t seemed to be phased by shaq or Howard.
    2) Lebron can’t win the big one. It’s just his nature. Sure he could draw everyone to the hoop and then kick it out to sharpshooter to score….but where’s the drama in that? Much better off to go 1 on 5, throw up an off balance piece of crap, clank it off the rim, feign falling and injuring yourself and then bitch like a little girl for a call.
    Oh, and one more thing..Mike Brown..Really? I wouldn’t know where to begin.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5ebb21970c JD

    This post fails in so many ways its not even funny. First, you only look at ppg. If we’re looking at the whole picture, which is overall performance in the season and postseason than we come out with this:
    Rondo> M. Williams
    Ray Allen > D West (or whoever replaces him)
    Paul Pierce < LeBron James
    KG>>>> Varajao (pussy)
    Perk < Shaq (But Perk will hold his own)
    I think the benches are fairly even, both are stacked.
    Mike Brown showed he shitty he is as a coach last year when he couldn’t get a 66 win team to the finals. The Celtics are the best team in the league, they just need to be healthy. There’s no way around it.

  • King James is the Best

    no they lucked out cuz garnett was actually going to be traded to the Lakers if u remember and the two former celtics (ainge and mchale) wouldn’t let a great PF go to the hated Lakers so the celtics lucked out with mchale being the gm and one celtic helped the other one by GIVING him garnett and basically handing him the 08 championship cocksucker mother fucker

  • King James is the Best

    even if u guys make it to the finals which you WON’T and will be making up more excuses when Lebron wins his first title… i think lakers could beat you guys anyway, if not them i bet the spurs could

  • KY Celts fan

    King James, where do you get off? Cavs have won nothing! NOTHING! Cleveland has a total of 2 division titles, and one Conference title. That’s it! The only time your pussy little Cavs ever got to finals, they got ass-raped by the Spurs. You have the worst finals record of any team in the league! Tony Parker made Lebron his bitch. The Big Three took turns raping Lebron in 2008, and then Howard put his dick up Lebron’s ass last year.
    And you come here and try to challenge the greatest franchise in the history of the sport? Come back when you have 18 championships, one more than the Celtics, and they you can talk all you want.

  • KY Celts fan

    I disagree with you assessment with Pierce

  • prefuse

    “Mike Brown showed he “SHITTY” he is as a coach last year when he couldn’t get a 66 win team to the finals.” HAHAHAHAHHA FAIL

  • prefuse

    I notice that when someone is owning you, you bring up LA fans grammar. Its call the “internet” if you haven’t notice, people nowadays use slang. Trying talking about basketball and not get off topic…PATHETIC

  • prefuse

    Trashy Fans? 22 years of nothing, then booing your own BASKETBALL team sounds trashy.

  • haha

    Uhh he wasnt comparing Bynum and Ariza to KG. He was comparing how when both players are out, it impacted the team. So argument 2 is still in the window

  • haha

    umm thats based off your own opinion. Hell i can say Everyone from the Lakers Squad > Celtics Squad. So does that mean Lakers have all the advantage? since i said so?
    Stop basing shit off your own opinion and making it seem like you know everything

  • haha

    Wow!!! your so cool, your the grammar patrol. Do you have anything better to do then correct peoples grammar? Why does it matter to you how they spell? As long as you can read it and understand, who gives a crap? Certainly if that makes you feel dumb, you should stop coming to this site, since most celtics fan are the same.

  • haha

    Isn’t it funny how you say GM’s make smart move, yet when Lakers got Pau Gasol, this whole site cried like babies? Whining left and right? Saying how lakers stole him and all the bs? I’m pretty sure you did the same also.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5ebb21970c JD

    Alright, so are you really willing to say that old Derek Fisher is better than Rajon Rondo at this point? Or that Ron Artest is better than Paul Pierce? Ill give you that with KG’s injury, he and Gasol might be equals, but that doesn’t make it much better. Sure its my opinion, but it makes sense until you prove otherwise. Why don’t you say you’re opinion instead of lambasting me for saying mine?

  • Danno

    That’s the whole point. If I have to read back your post 4 times to understand it because your grammar, spelling, and sentence structure is so atrocious that it makes finding a point in it difficult – what do you think that says about how people perceive your opinions? It’s like applying for a job in a dirty, puke-stained clown suit.

  • KY Celts fan

    he was talking about the impact that Bynum and Ariza have on the Lakers to the impact that KG has on the Celtics. There’s no comparison. It would be the same as comparing Kobe’s impact to Davis and House. So yeah, I’m pretty sure that argument doesn’t work.

  • lainok

    How can I say this in a way that people from boston will understand? Just imagine it with that mangled accent that you guys murder the english language with:
    Patriots suck
    Bruins suck
    Red Sox don’t suck, but it’ll be another century till the series.
    And more than ever, the celtics suck.
    The only reason they keep bringing up the trash talk is because two years ago, and going up until Christmas last year, ( wait…can you remind me which game that was? I forgot) up until then all of the media and bandwagon fans were on their nuts. And now most people don’t think they can even make it out of the East, maybe not even the second round. Peirce is sad because he sent out all these invitations to a party that no one is showing up to. What’s he going to do with all that cake, and the guy in the spiderman costume his mom got? The fact that they let seemingly lesser teams take them to seven games over and over, and then they get beat by the magic? It just shows their arrogance in not taking their opponents seriously, and it should have raised a red flag, that they were good, but their were some weakness. The east got better this year, and I would be shocked if they could do better than a 4th seed. So again in a way you can understand it with your trashy accent:
    HOW DO YOU LIKE DEM APPLES?

  • thetitleisours

    Just read the constant turds Laker’s fans drop on boards everywhere.
    Too many Laker trolls. Makes me appreciate the few decent fans you guys have

  • prefuse

    Try using “LOGIC” -_-

  • prefuse

    Lakers fans only troll because blogger like you guys are totally bias. I don’t mind being bias because that’s your team, but seriously, you guys are way off. Not only that, you guys talk shit on players for no reason. Lastly, you guys agree on EVERYTHING your team says.. even when they’re wrong, you guys still agree.

  • KY Celts fan

    so Lakers fans must search the blogs and fansites of other teams just to make sure that those fans aren’t just talking about how much they enjoy their team, or support team decisions?
    Personally, I think that Lakers fans have a bigger self-esteem issue than Stan Van Gundy. It’s why every time Hollinger or Simmons writes an article, they have to personally single out Lakers fans to let them know they aren’t insulting them. You guys are like the hot girl who constantly asks her friends if she’s fat.
    Listen, we all know Kobe is a great player, and we all see that they are a great team, so you don’t need to constantly harass other fans to let them know how great the Lakers are. This is our team and our site, and I don’t see why it’s a problem for us to talk about how much we like our team and are excited about the upcoming season. So do us a favor. Go masturbate to a picture of Vujacic (cuz he kinda looks like a girl) and leave us be.

  • haha

    How are you going to say the dont have the same impact just because KG is a star? He means impact as in how it affected the Lakers without their Core players. Why are all celtics fan so ignorant that when people start to talk about the impact the player had, the jump to the conclusion of comparing players. So the argument is still in.
    If davis and House were out, and that affected the team, then it would mean the impact would be the same as kobe.

  • prefuse

    This is your team and site? Looks like a Lakers blog to me. You don’t want Lakers fans to come here? Then tell your trashy fans to stay out of our site. Am I harassing also? Don’t read your own blogs? You guys harass the NBA players more than the fans harasses you. You guys look very lonely there with the females picture. Knowing that you guys are fat and ugly, I can see why you lonely men post female pictures that are half naked, because that’s the only action you fellas can get.

  • KY Celts fan

    the impact of losing role players and the impact of losing franchise players is completely different. to think otherwise is just ignorance or self delusions you are using just to try and prove your point.
    and of course we compare players. It’s a player’s league. it’s why we have awards like MVP, defensive player, and sixth man. all these awards are based on player comparison.

  • KY Celts fan

    It just doesn’t even make sense anymore. Like reading the ramblings of a mad man.

  • prefuse

    Good game my friend..
