Every week, we look at the Big Three things happening in Celtics-land,
good and bad, and we rank them… Because we don't have the attention span to do a 12 days of Christmas thing
On The Way Up
1: The long and winding road: So what if the teams the C's beat on their way to 11 straight wins are about 50 games under .500 combined? 20-4 is 20-4. And right now, the only teams with that record are us… and the Lakers (click here to add dramatic sound effect)
2: Back in MY day: Kevin McHale basically calls today's NBA players a bunch of pussies… which is awesome. If only he could follow that up by clotheslining LeBron.
3: Next step, thumb wrestling: Glen Davis is a couple weeks away from coming back…. and he's playing Madden to get his thumb back into shape.
On The Way Down
3: Don't carry a grudge or anything: Brad Miller doesn't think revenge is a dish best served cold. He thinks it should be served frozen a year after it was made. At least he doesn't hit very hard.
2: Ole'!: The C's still have problems staying in front of guys and tests like Orlando on the road coming up. Here's hoping they're not lulled into a false sense of confidence by their recent success.
1: Doc is just killing me: Actually, this has nothing to do with anything bad happening this week… but 2 straight midweek days off give us no storylines. Dammit, Doc… throw me a friggin bone here.
