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 Philadelphia.
Really disappointed that nobody put Rondo or Pierce on the ground when they were out there throwing behind the back passes and taking 24 footers when the game was already won.
I really got pissed when Rondo did his let-the-ball-roll-on-the-inbounds thing until it almost came to a stop with a 25 point lead.
agreed. WTF? We might not be able to beat the Cs, but we coulda at least repped our hood.
Next time somebody needs to do some checking…
The statements above are from three individual Sixers fans and all valid points. The Celtics, especially Rondo and Pierce, often get into "showboat" mode during blowout games.
A flagrant foul and potential suspension would have been a stupid move by anyone in a Sixers uniform. Philly will need all their horses for Game 4.
And let's be real, Philly isn't a tough team.
