Enemy Chatter: Good job! Good effort!

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.  Here's a look at some enemy chatter from Miami.

The Miami Heat hit their lowest point of the postseason on Tuesday night but one young child was there to provide a "glass is half full" assessment despite the demoralizing circumstances.

As the Heat walked off the American Airlines Arena court, having lost Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals to the Boston Celtics 94-90, a young child's voice was picked up by television cameras offering excited encouragement.

The child repeatedly said "Good job! Good effort!" while clapping as LeBron JamesRonny Turiaf and Shane Battier headed for the locker room after falling behind the Celtics 3-2 in the series. The Heat conceded homecourt advantage with the loss and are now staring down a possible close-out Game 6 set for Thursday night at TD Garden.

Naive as this child's reaction is, at least he brought some energy to the arena. You can't say the same for the other 19-thousand people in the building.

    I heard that last nite during the live game and thought it was hilarious.

    Somewhere out there is a parent who should be proud. Your kid has been raised a total pussy in the “Everyone wins, everyone gets a ribbon” world.
    Life doesn’t work that way, kid. Your weak-minded favorite team just shit down its leg – again – in the clutch and this series is ovah – Boston talk – if the officials don’t bail their Hollywood asses out in OT in game two.
    Effort doesn’t mean shit in the NBA, kid. Wins do.

    Is there any chance that this kid was a C’s fan and just being sarcastic as hell? That would be awesome!! C’s have all the momentum in the world right now! I felt like everyone else last night after this win; like a kid on Christmas morning!!

    Oh, piss off, “Coach” Bo. He’s just a kid. I remember saying the saying the exact same things to my teammates when I played baseball and basketball as a kid. He’s just being a good sport and trying to cheer up his team.
    And what do you mean “Effort doesn’t mean shit in the NBA.” Of course it does. Wins don’t come without effort. It’s by pure effort that the Celtics are even ahead in this series.
    Get your head out of your ass and stop insulting children.

  • Very true!
    The kid was probably just repeating the exact words he`s heard many times, from his Little League coach, after striking out to end the game.

  • This has to be what the crowd chants ALL NIGHT LONG Thursday.

    Live this was what I thought. It was hilarious.

    Kind of an interesting comment while the Celtics blogosphere explodes with love for the C’s because of their heart, grit, and… effort.
    The kid’s comment was funny because
    1. The Heat didn’t actually make a good effort, because they expect to be rewarded with not 5, not 6, not 7 just for showing up.
    2. The comment comes off as condescending when said to adults playing professional sports.
    The child isn’t a pussy. The child is a child who hasn’t learned that what’s kind in t-ball isn’t kind in the NBA, or that the Heat aren’t mentally tough.

    Children mimic what they’re taught by their pussy parents, such as the moron KY above, who seems to happily equate effort with success without a rudimentary understanding that a shitload of people try hard every day and fall flat on their asses.
    This thread reveals people who shouldn’t be raising kids.
    Stupid kid. Stupid parents.

  • FRank

    Can you imagine this guy in the stands at his kid’s Little League game? I’d add LOL if it weren’t so sickening.

  • FRank

    OK, now that’s funny…8^D

  • KY Celts fan

    well, when your kid comes home upset that his team lost, you go right ahead and tell him that it doesn’t matter what he did on the court, but because his team lost, the he’s a failure.
    Me, I’m more than happy to teach my kid that it’s just a game and how to separate real life from sports.
    We do agree that this thread reveals who shouldn’t be raising kids.
