Enemy Chatter: Doc Rivers was the best guard on the court

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 Miami.

- No Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo or Kevin Garnett for Boston. What exactly did Paul Pierce do to deserve this?

– As for Pierce being punished alongside what remained of the Celtics, coach Doc Rivers quipped pregame, "Paul's playing right now. Maybe when he finds out who is not playing, he won't."

– Rivers wound up as the best guard on the court.

Whether you're reading the Boston or Miami blogs, there are lots of funny quips about last night's travesty of a basketball game.

There isn't much love for Norris Cole among Heat media and fans. He's no longer the player who torched the Celtics for 20 points in Game 2 of the regular season. One blogger thinks Carlos Arroyo – a guy who hasn't played in the NBA all season – would be a better option.

    How bad was that game last night? Red’s Army has had five new blog posts today, and no one was been interested enough to comment. Postseason, get here quick!

    No shit. I had to go check the traffic numbers to make sure people were still reading. But, honestly… what is there to say? I can’t even do a “taking stock” for that shit show

    This makes me think about the Match Game when Gene Rayburn would say something along the lines of, “That game was so bad…” and the audience would shout, “How bad was it?!”
    “It was SO bad that despite canceling plans with friends last night to watch it, I STILL considered switching to Dancing With the Stars to see some grace on parquet.”

    That game was SO bad, I actually got excited when we cut the lead down to 11-2 over halfway through the first quarter.

    That game was SO bad, for a while I wanted to watch a hockey game for a game with high scoring.

    No such thing as a “bad” game when the Celtics win.
