Kobe for MVP – Win or Lose?

Kobe for MVP – Win or Lose?

Via John Hollinger of ESPN.com: While the Celtics deserve their 3-2 lead in the series, there's no question who the best player has been over these first five games.

Garnett, to Pierce, to Rondo FTW!

Garnett, to Pierce, to Rondo FTW!

I don't think people give Rondo enough credit for the CATCH on this.  The whole play was nuts.  Pierce's catch, whirl and pass was sick.  Rondo's finish was unreal (though we should be used to it by now and even Rondo called it "easy"). But look at how far back Rondo has to reach back [...]

One more win

One more win

The Celtics are one win away from Banner 18. One. Win. Away. Tonight's 92-86 victory was a great TEAM effort. Kevin Garnett was an absolute monster: 18 points, 10 rebounds, 5 steals and 2 blocks. His defensive effort was incredible. I thought I was watching highlights from 2008. Paul Pierce had his best offensive effort [...]
