Sorry man. I've been wishing bad things on that team for awhile now. I just really can't stand them. From Scalabrine's b!tch t!ts to Garnett's lankiness and unsportmanlike antics to Pierce's trash talking and injury faking. Ray Allen faking his ankle injuries in Seattle because they weren't a very good team, all of a sudden he is miraculously healed and barely misses any games in Boston. Rondo's annoying style of play and disrespect as a young player. Can't handle 'em dude. They are all good players don't get me wrong, they just aren't classy and respectful. So I wish hateful things on 'em.

I respect that. I'm a huge Celtics fan, always have been (omgggg the secrets out!!!11one!1), and even though they basically are a bunch of arseholes, I still love them.

There is only one way to deal with classless pukes who rub salt in wounds. And that's play the game to win. The whole league has become nothing other then a big love fest. Like Jack said, Bosh could / should have created himself some space, and like Doug Smith said, not to many players in this league would do what they have to, to get space. You can loose to the Celtics and still earn respect.

Every team in the league is guilty of becoming soft but the Raptors more so. Bosh is too interested in being friends with everybody, trying to be popular, be recognized by his peers. Graham, Bargnani and Calderon have all shown they will stand up for themselves, but nobody will stand up for each other.

Make opponents pay for driving in the lane, give hard fouls. Nothing pisses me off more then a Parker excuse me foul with a made basket and a free throw. This is a game, but a big stakes game and somebody needs to remind Bosh, Parker, Moon and the rest of those stakes.

And that's my biggest beef with Bosh. If you want to win, you do what it takes to win. Respect is earned on the court and not just handed out because some fans voted you into the All Star game. You do what it takes to win, even if it means throwing Garnett an elbow.

Speaking of classless, I don't mean to drag Garnett's name into this (actually I do).

Fond (fondest I have of Bonner) memory several years ago. I was at this game where Bonner gives Garnett a hard foul (not flagrant) but of course Garnett gets the star treatment and Bonner is tossed. Latrell (I can't feed my family) Sprewell sticks his nose in and gets nothing. Loved Bonner's exit. The fans loved it and him! Standing O for him!

Raptors won the game and Bosh actually did not seem afraid of Garnett in this game. This was the game where more comparisons were made with Bosh to Garnett. Bosh had a great game and Garnett not so great.

I was pretty disgusted when i saw that dunk, and it was obvious that Jay Triano was pissed off. He walked right up to the refs to make sure a time out was called, even though it wasn't necessary.

I really hate the Celtics. I hope this year the Cavs will win over the Celtics and the Lakers will win the championship.

Exactly. It wasn't malicious or classless. Just putting the game away, fair and square.

Judging by the mentality of the Celtics and the way this game ended, I doubt that this was 'putting the game away'. The dunk occurred when there was 5 seconds left, they were up 6 and no Raptors were around to foul. It was a classic, cocky, Celtic way of saying FU to the Raptors organization and all of their fans.

But he just kind of dunked it, not hard or with a flourish, just dunked it in their building to please the fans. You're creating implications in your head, probably because you're pissed that they swept us this season.

Next season we will beat the Celtics. You know why? They'll be older.
