Enemy Chatter: Where Rasheed is done

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers
are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose
of 'enemy chatter' from Los Angeles

Lakers forward Pau Gasol said he called the timeout immediately after Paul Pierce missed a layup with 5.8 seconds remaining.

"I think I made eye contract with the referee," Gasol said. "The
referee decided not to call the timeout. I thought we made eye contact
and I think they showed the replay. I thought the guys looked at me and
they didn’t call it."

LA Times

Whine, whine, whine. It's possible the referees were making up for the non-call on Paul Pierce.

The bench came in the third quarter and nearly ran these old and creaky
Celtics ragged. Sasha Vujacic, probably thankful that he was still in a
Laker uniform after this afternoon’s trade deadline had passed, chipped
in 4 quick points and stuck to red-hot Ray Allen much more effectively
than Derek Fisher could the entire game. Allen scored 24 points on
10-15 shooting and proved that his struggles of late were not at all
indicative of what he still had the ability to do, and tonight what the
Lakers missed most about Kobe was not just his clutch appeal, but his
defense on Allen.

Lakers Nation

  • Supposedly Marquis Daniels played last night.  Complete non factor.  I think I like him more than the mistake machine Tony Allen.
  • As usual, KG was brick city in the 4th.  He's good for that.
  • I usually hate on Rajon Rondo,
    but he's absolutely great at finding the right guy.  Especially in
    semi-transition.  The Celtics don't have to run set plays a lot because
    he's so good at it.
  • Rasheed is done. 

Silver Screen and Roll

The fact that Kobe Bryant didn't play last night was mentioned in every other paragraph of just about every blog post I came across. And Lakers trolls bitch that we use KG's injury as a crutch?

    Lakers nation comments are hilarious.
    Do they realize they lost?

  • DRJ

    Sheed had a bad night, but this time it was not due to laziness or loss of focus. Everybody’s entitled to have a bad game once in a while. Let’s see what happens next…

    “Old, creaky celtics”
    It’s like they didn’t lose last night. These people are completely dillusional. YOU LOST LAKERS

  • NineSevenEight

    Yes, Sheed did not have a great game. But if Sheed is done, where does Derek Fisher rank?

  • Lakers 24 7

    Tough loss for my Lake Show last night. I think if these two teams meet in the finals this season, it will be more epic than ever before. They both turned up their defense nearly holding each other scoreless in the last 4-5 minutes.
    Also, I have no idea why they gave the ball to Fisher. He’s a SPOT UP shooter, not the one to create a shot for himself, especially with 2 seconds left. Oh, well. It’s a loss. I just want the Celtics to take out the Cavaliers in the playoffs, can you guys promise me that they will?

  • Hey Chuck, just wanted to point out that when you say “I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics.”, you mean “the Celtics after playing the Lakers” or vice-versa.
    Great roundup of quotes though, man.

  • BTW — check out this post I wrote: http://bosceltics17.blogspot.com/2010/02/arrival-of-heroes-where-i-dont-care.html
    I have the exact same thoughts as you do about Kobe.

  • Umm… Actually… no, that’s what he meant.

  • Whoops — misread that. Disregard that comment, haha. Sorry.

  • SorryMan

    Uh…Garnett and Kobe, there is no comparison
    Kobe, a guy who averages 28 points per game and WON the mvp (meaning he is the most valuable player for his team), or Garnett who is a washed up version of a mediocre player in minnesota

  • Double P Reppin the B

    haha mediocre player in Minnesota. If it’s MVPs you want, KG WON an MVP as well. and he has a Defensive player of the year. hm nice argument though you fucking moron

  • hitler

    lol the reason why we complain about you guys using kg as a crutch is because the dude is constantly injured. you cant keep using him as an excuse. this is one of the rare times kobe has ever sat down because of injury. so our argument is more valid than yours.

  • Nora

    Lakers fans brace yourselves. Kobe is not much younger then our big 3. Chew on that.

  • Nora

    Not really.

  • Nora

    So it is only ok to use it as crutch as long as the player is on the Lakers. Whatever dude. It is the same thing. Just remember Kobe will be where KG is pretty soon. Kobe has been playing almost as long.

  • Ref

    He might not be much younger but he is more fit then all 3 of them combined..

  • believe that!

    hahaha! Another bynum excuse please…. we’ve beaten LA fools! 9 times in the finals!
