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 New York.
“Oh yeah, it would’ve been over,” Smith said after Tuesday’s practice. “I’d have been playing golf today.”
The NBA suspended Smith for Game 4 after the Sixth Man Award winner threw an elbow atJason Terry‘s chin late in Game 3.
Smith watched on television Sunday as the Celtics defeated the Knicks 97-90 in overtime to avoid elimination and extend the series. Terry scored nine points in overtime.
Asked about Terry on Tuesday, Smith said, “Who? I don’t even know who that is.”
The Celtics do their fair share of trash talking, but the Knicks are really pushing it.
First, Keynon Martin told his teammates to prepare for a funeral. And now, JR Smith is yapping about a sweep and ignoring Jason Terry.
Why would they want to say anything that could inspire the Celtics?
Just a friendly reminder to the Knicks and their fans. You haven’t won a playoff series in 13 years.
