The Celtics had these advantaged last year and the year before that didn't they?

what were the results?

-Beat a good detroit team
-Played LA without Bynum and Ariza.

They are the most overrated title team of all time.

u are right.

Celtics fans always brag about taking the Heat to 7 games when their team took the Hawks to 7 games in 2008 acting like that shit never happened.

i'm guessing the 37-45 Hawks >> Lakers

i thought people in Boston were smarter.

Maybe you guys could make fun of the 2008 Celtics if an even worse Celtics team didnt beat the Cavaliers in 2010........

They didn't have the GOAT defensive player Avery Bradley, who "shut down" Wade a whole 1 time in the reg. season.

Boston still had the next best 4 players after LeBron in that series.

Played down to their competition. They beat a Lakers team, who had the best record in the West, in 6. One less game than the Hawks and Cavs.

The '08 Celts are right there w/ the '04 Pistons, '05 Spurs, and '01 Lakers. Neither are overrated.

Heat fans acting like injuries are not part of the game...

if I start with the injuries Boston had all these years, I might as well say they did this league a favor by not destroying the competition for 3-4 straight years...

... which explains why pre-ASG and post-ASG 2012 Celtics were 2 different teams...
