I'm not even mad anymore. He probably left Boston off the list because he didn't want to play with Kyrie's unstable ass.

Pretty sure Irving wasn't recruiting AD (or KD) ever to Boston as much as anyone here liked to believe, including our FO.

It's water under the bridge now.

I know there are like a dozen other things of greater importance that happened tonight but Romeo has not looked out place yet with the ball in his hands running a PnR. Easy to see why he was absurdly efficient in college in that situation. Plus body control and doesn’t rush things, which is good for any rookie never mind a one and done. I feel good about him.

Much much much much MUCH needed W.
My mood (off for non-Celtics reasons) has demonstrably & palpably lightened.
JIZZ WORTHY!
A MASSIVE DESTRUCTION of the mother **** scum sucking WC-dominating LA **** Fakers.
JB’s posterization of the Queen was literally the equivalent of **** on top of his head.

1 Smart point short of 6 double digit scorers.
JT was simply magnificent w 27-5-3 & 10-18 & 5-8 & GREAT D!
EK was dominant as well in Q2 w 18-11.
Very solid games by Kemba, JB & Gordon!

Now, as Joey posted, show us you can continue this kind of awesome team play as we go forward.
Hopefully, this game will be a turning point for us.
Having this team intact makes a difference!

Check this out - the 2 through 6 seeds are barely separable:
Heat 30-13
Craps 29-14
Celtics 28-14
Pacers 28-16
Sixers 29-16
Final placement will be a dog fight.
We need #2!

Iduno, after the dunk Chris Webber got bonus points from me for bringing up the Charlie Murphy Prince skit and dunking and falling in slow motion like Prince. It was the best thing he has ever said.

Hopefully a game like tonight vs. the Lakers on national tv gives Tatum a strong push by media/players to vote him into the ASG. It means a lot to him I think to make it this year too.

And yeah......4th highest selling jersey. :lol:

At this point I'll be surprised if he doesn't make the All-Star team. He's been balling since that 41-point game.

I'm okay with the 3 game losing streak. As long as they beat the damn Lakers, er... Fakers.

**** their yellow and purple jerseys. **** Kobe, **** Magic. And **** LeBron. Go Green, go Celtics.

I'm voting for Jaylen.

I think he is basically a lock to make it.

Nah. Ainge had a plan to trade Horford so he could pursue KD in the summer of 2017. Kyrie was recruiting him that season. This all came from reload back in the spring of that season.

Yes. Number 2 seed is key. Even the Bucks who are going to get the one, are not going to have a cake walk to the finals.

Lebron fouled Brown on that dunk too!

JT was a stud tonight!

Went with Kanter for the cigar. No one worked harder imo.

And last season some things did change, but we don't have to go all into it publicly now since it's stupid now to think back at all of it even, bleh.

Last year was kinda weird but water under the bridge now.

One of the most satisfying regular season wins in Stevens era. Keep doing this to other teams. Thanks.

When you know, you know.



Makes me think about those special days in school & later in life w my weekend warriors at the gym when my shot was so so so pure & dripping wet (while of course suppressing the memory of those days when I shot 5% - LOL).

Paul Newman was a classic.
