Celtics v. Lakers Rivalry Continued

I didn't get to see either of the last two Celtics games this week and I swear I am going to strangle the Direct TV tech today. Missing Ray Ray's game winner hurt, but not watching the grab ass in last nights game might have been for the best. Who knows watching an OT game where the C's lose to the Lake Show may have given me a stroke. From what I gather about the game. Eddie House took the last shot in regulation. Now, I know he was hot in the 4th, but I've seen Eddie "get those shots". Eddie doesn't "Hit Big Shots" and that is stated with love. Ray Allen is "That Guy". He will get you that shot and was clearly fouled, but I won't argue that point because it was a Huge rivalry game. Refs don't make those calls in these kind of games. I'd rather live with Ray Allen missing a big shot then Eddie is all I'm saying.
Doc also needs to stop the B.S. with Big Baby over Powe. Powe is obviously the better option in spots where you need a tough board. PJ Brown isn't walking through that door...until late April. Bib Baby is fine when he's getting garbage minutes, but when he's 1-8 and K.G. fouls out Powe is the obvious answer. Come on Doc you're better than that...Right?

Are you Sugar Ray?

After watching the surprisingly interesting and entertaining Superbowl despite the Steelers winning another title I needed something to turn my attention to. Unfortunately my DirecTv dish goes down the night Ray Allen hits a killer three to ice the Sixers. Figures. But, what if you watch the final play develop it is uncanny how the Big Three have gelled so seemlessly. Honestly it is like Pierce, Allen, & K.G. have been playing together since AAU. Watch how Pierce draws the defenders and Ray instantly cuts to his sweet spot. I don't blame the Sixers for taking the bait. Sure having three of the best players in the league on your team is a blessing. But, watching three bonafide stars, who could have egos about having to share touches, come together for the better of the team is a special thing to behold. In this day and age watching this team come together from the first game of 2008 to now is amazing.

Completely unrelated notes:

  • How did Ben Coates not get a first ballot nod for the Hall?
  • How the hell did James Harrison not get booted from the game for THIS!
  • The Steelers are the class of the league...My Ass! To quote Tim McCarver "You're a real man Ryan Clark...You're a Real MAN!"
  • You call this a parade Pittsburgh? We had a bigger one in Portland, ME for the Pats in 2001.
