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 New York.
Public Service Announcement: Paul Pierce, like LeBron James, delights in playing the villain. Those "Paul Pierce sucks" chants would be cool if they didn't nourish the bastard. I don't feel qualified to make Harry Potter metaphors, but…dementor?
The Harry Potter metaphor may have sailed right over my head, but I do know one thing, Paul Pierce is a cold, blooded baller.
For a brief moment last night, I felt like a pre-2004 Yankees fan. As the fanatics at MSG helplessly watched their team fall apart in the 4th quarter, they used the only weapon they had left – their mouths: "Boston sucks, Boston sucks!"
There's no logic to verbally disparaging a team that has thoroughly throttled you over the past four years while appearing in two NBA finals. But desperate times call for desperate measures.
I pity Knicks fans…
