Gasol throws down the gauntlet

Kg slaps gasol

Yahoo Sports (Via the Boston Globe)

Since then, however, Boston has gone 14-14. Asked to compare these
Celtics to the 2008 champs, Lakers forward Pau

said: “Three years older and three years later.”

Gasol’s math might be a little off, but he’s clearly hesitant about
labeling the Celtics as a legitimate title contender. “They have to
prove it themselves,” Gasol said. “It’s going to be tough. They got
Orlando. They got Atlanta. They’ve struggled against Atlanta this year
and got swept there. They got Cleveland, of course. You can make your
own conclusions there.”

Laugh it up, fuzz ball.

The Celtics are playing the disrespect card.  Doc's already talking about people jumping off the bandwagon.

So everyone keep yapping about how the Celtics are done. 

Keep yapping.

    Eff Gasol. Keep yapping.

  • Alex

    I like the fact that people are seeing the Celtics as the underdogs now.

  • SydneyCeltic

    Pffft. Pau Gasol is a wanker.

  • Perry

    C’s held Portland to only 3 FG’s in the second quarter. That’s championship defense.
    They can defend any team in the league and win on the road. Let’s not forget they blew leads against all these teams Gasol was talking about — including his own.
    Despite the slippage a two seed is certainly attainable. If healthy, come playoff time, they’ll be ready.

    i have a question..have the celtics ever been favored over the lakers in the finals.?it seems to me that the lakers are the darlings of the league, obviously.!!but i was just wondering if the odds makers have always made the c’s underdogs..even dating back to the russell era..

  • paul

    Gasol’s gonna eat his words

    Well certainly in the 60’s they were, but I don’t remember the 80’s. Your point about LAL being a media darling is correct, but it goes so much deeper.
    The anti-Celtic bias can be traced back to when Red secured the rights for Charlie Scott. Red used his draft rights to acquire Silas — err go the Celtics won the 74′ championship.
    The media would forever loath his victory cigars, and they resented Red more when he dubbed himself ‘the master architect’. Red of course wasn’t done. I believe a year later he traded for Scott who helped win the championship in 76 against the Suns.
    Then came his drafting of Bird as a junior followed by the all time fleece…Mchale-Parish
    This is why you’ve watched two generations of players turned broadcasters never showing the Celtics love.


    Love it…will make the C’s wanna show everyone every night….
    Hopefully the misguided arrogance that this team used to have will become fire in the belly…

    I’m lovin the bitch-slap picture.

    The league is on it’s way to waking up a sleeping giant… if we get our defense back we’ll decimate everyone. Tomorrow is our chance to really prove our progress. Let’s go Celtics!!

    Last time I checked Lakers still have to prove they can beat the Celtic’s in the finals not the other way around. Their sense of entitlment is so annoying. They have already written themselves in the finals. I hope some team takes them down before that just because of that attitude. Too bad m0st West Coast teams are not that great.

  • Nora

    Exactly/ Ever heard of letting a sleeping dog lie? Celtics feed off this clearly. 2008 rings a bell

  • KY Celts fan

    Nuggets can do it. They’ve pushed the Lakers around in both games. I really like their chances this year. And if we can win it all, I hope they do.

  • KY Celts fan

    *can’t win it all

    I love how this fucking spanish pussy runs off his mouth when he essentially was rendered useless by Phil Jackson when these 2 met in Boston earlier this year. We’ve got 3 bigs who throw him around and he played like a fuckin pussy in the Finals. C’mon now honestly dude just shut ur mouth till u beat us in the finals thats itt. Don’t take short cuts and luck out by facing orlando. Beat the green then talk some shit.


    LOL Nick you dumb shit, the reason the lakers couldnt own you fuckin leprachauns in the finals last year is cuz orlando owned you guys in the 2nd round. LOL “Dont take short cuts and luck out by facing orlando”? huh? how about dont suck and get owned in the 2nd round by a team the lakers whooped in the finals. what a dumbshit moron boston fan

  • greenbeand

    gasol is the softest bitch in playoff bb

  • I think you hit a nerve Nick.

  • Jerome

    Fakers Suck pussy

  • PaulPierceWannaBeGangsta

    The Celtics will NOT make the Finals.
    I’ll wear a C’s jersey for a month straight if they do.
    2 games? Hardly a “nice string of wins”.
    Just watch, green monkeys. And cover your ears, cause the yapping is only getting louder.

  • Scott

    its 4 wins in a row. And 17 titles I believe …

  • Shawn-cvd

    You’ll have to send us a picture… Also how long will you wear that jersey if the Celtics win it all?!?
