Default Red Auerbach's daughter lives in LA, hates the Lakers, doesn't like Kobe and Lebron

Quote:
L: Now letís shift to these Celtics, the players over the last few years. How about the new Celtics? How has this group of Celtics, Garnett, Pierce, Rondo and Doc distinguished themselves amongst the many great teams in Celtics lore?

R: I am a huge fan of Doc Rivers. Heís such a class act. He has a lot of integrity and a lot of heart. He has done a fantastic job.

I feel that in the last few years Ė [these Celtics] have been fantastic. They have so much heart and soul when they play. I think itís been great. I love to watch them.

They are very reminiscent of some past teams. They show you donít need the superstars to be successful. You donít need the LeBrons and the Kobes. Five solid players can beat one superstar. And thatís what the Celtics have always been about. Theyíve been about team. And thatís what [these current Celtics] are like. They have been great. Absolutely great.

Quote:
Well, I am an avid Laker-hater, but how do you not love Magic Johnson? I donít like Kobe. He has enormous talent, but I donít enjoy watching him play. Magic you couldnít dislike. I loved watching him play. There was just so much joy when he played, so much explosion. When you see that Ė it doesnít matter who the player is or whom he is playing for. You rarely see that anymore because people are so worried about the media and cameras. So you donít get the same joy as watching Magic or other players.

And I am sorry, but I am not a fan of LeBron. Now heís got one ring, but remember he was not a finisher until this year. Heíd lose concentration in the big moments. I am not convinced yet that heís the best player ever. Would I take him over Russell or Bird or Jordan or Magic? Not even close. Heís still about the cameras, and worried about the media.

Quote:
L: Youíre a fan of the commissioner?

R: A big fan of Davidís. He extends an invitation to the All-Star game every year, which I appreciate because it gives me an opportunity to catch up and to participate in the NBA Cares program.

I supported his decision with Chris Paul, who has done a great thing out here with the Clippers. It was controversial and it took a lot of guts, but I believe it was the right decision.

I donít understand how the Lakers are carrying what they are carrying. I get [the players] for wanting the media and the exposure. Thatís why they want to play for New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. They want to go there for that.

Quote:
L: And lastly, any predictions for the coming NBA season?

R: I hope we can rally and win it. Iíd love to see Doc take another ring home. There are a lot of teams I like a lot. I really dislike the one team that shall go unnamed. I canít help it. Itís such a vitriol reaction for me when they say Lakers. Or when I see purple.

Someone told me a story about Jerry West once, they were handing out NBA shirts, and Jerry West said, ďI canít wear the green one.Ē I am the same way with purple. Itís not going to happen.

The Lakers. I donít know if the Lakers have a strong enough coach to deal with that amount of talent and ego. They could implode. People say coaching doesnít matter when you have all that talent but it does. You need a strong coach.

I happen to like Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. They need to hope Kobe is smart enough to figure out what works for them. For me, I hope he doesnít.

Something about that "They are very reminiscent of some past teams. They show you don’t need the superstars to be successful" comment doesn't quite sit right with me. I get what she is trying to say, but the Celtics dynasties of the 60s and 80s were built around Bill Russell and Larry Bird; arguably two of the six greatest players in NBA history.

Sorry, I didn't realize that stat geeks and paid ESPN analysts carried more weight here than people who have intimate, behind the scenes info about legendary coaches and organizations.

Not to mention that the Big 3 Celtics are the direct inspiration for the Miami Heat's big 3 and the current superstar hoarding trend.

She might as well walk around with a green colored dildo in her mouth. I don't see how she can call the Celtics a family and Lakers not.

She probably looks like Carrot Top.
