Hey Rod, Karen & Joston Celtics
Like Uncle Thanos once said, “All that for a drop of blood”
Seriously though, Boston did all of that just to be prematurely nut in the first quarter, that they weren’t even at our level. Did the Miami Heat technically blow this 3-0 lead? Hell yes, but the Celtics didn’t finish the job. We were so close to losing to that team & Joe Mazzulla’s sociopathic eyes & curt statements. Luckily, we didn’t become the first team to choke away a 3-0 lead. Shit’s hard anyway. That’s what makes the 2016 Cavs 3-1 deficit so astounding & niggas continue to take LeBron’s legacy for granted. Caleb Martin saved our fucking lives. Not Jimmy, not Bam’s “sometimes I’m him” Adebayo and the essence of UD, Martin & even Strus did his thing. Jimmy, even with his clutch game 6 heroics, has been cheeks for a minute and you can’t do that against the Denver “Scared Straight” Nuggets. You can’t! I’m a Heat fan & I know this shit’ll end in 4 or 5 games. If it doesn’t? (Which, big if? Just wow)
The Boston Celtics love threes like a dumbass can’t take the hint on that a certain woman doesn’t like them. She tells the man 60 times, she’s not interested but because of stupid pride, they keep doing it anyway. They can’t help being so stupid. Mazzulla shouldn’t get fired, but get rid of that Anhk-Right Son of a Bitch Jaylen Brown. He can go. Mazzulla deserves credit for getting his team this far. Mofo went 5-1 in Elimination games. While that stat is more inflated than the US Economy, since they needed chance, after chance, that should count for something. There’s nothing to build off of with them. They need an identity chance. Even Tatum, who I really like, needs to stop jacking threes. Howard Bryant called this shit with them by calling out that style of play. It’s great when they go in, but it sucks when they don’t. This series was theirs for the taking, but to no avail, because these niggas are hopelessly stubborn. You’re not the Warriors, fuck y’all not even Kobe. Find an identity & stick with it. Sucks that two of Boston’s most proud franchises go home empty: The 1 seed Bruins losing to the 8th seed Florida Panthers in the first round & the 2 seed Celtics losing to the 8th seed Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals. Both Florida teams were last in some stat or whatever and they fucked around & got to their respective Finals appearance.
Spo’s a phenomenal coach but this’ll probably be a towering achievement if he pulls this off. Mike Malone has too many cards playing against us. I don’t see it, but it’s been a fun ride.
