  • Heat vs Celtics

    So the Celtics pulled off a huge win last night in South Beach. Taking a 3-2 lead in the series headed back to Beantown. Not looking good for the HEAT.

    I am a die-hard LAKERS fan and have hated the Celtics forever but I have to admit I would rather see the Celtics advance to the Finals. I know there are HEAT fans here at the CLAN and I'm not trying to razz anyone.

    I just hated the way the HEAT (LEBRON) came out with their not 1, not 2 etc etc titles prediction.

    So anyway in this case I'm pulling for the lessor of 2 evils, the CELTICS! Yuck!

    Sorry, but as a life-time Lakers fan myself ( 45+ years, but who's counting?) I could NEVER pull for the Celtics to win....ever. While I am certainly not a Heat fan by any stretch I automatically hope that whoever is playing the Celtics beats their sorry azzes to a pulp.:<>

    The main dilemma I face is trying to determine who do I detest more the Celtics or the Whiners. As this has been an ongoing philosophical debate with me for decades, I have learned to just spread the hate around as best as I can while usually focusing it on one or the other depending on whether it is football or basketball season.;)

      I don't like the Heat, and I HATE the Celtics, with a passion. I only want to see the Celtics make the finals if they match up against the Spurs. If OKC wins the West, I want to see the Heat take the East. For me, it all comes down to the matchup that will get me energized the most. Celtics vs Spurs is what I'm hoping for, because I think that would end up being an enjoyable experience for me in the end.

      I guess I should be careful with what I ask for though, because another Celtics Championship would be like a knife to the heart. I'm not a Kobe led Lakers fan, but I think it would be awesome to see the vaunted Celtics, get tied for titles by the Lakers. Right now it's 17 for Boston, and 16 for Minn/LA.

        Never understood the hate for Lebron, all he is to me is a great and talented player who lacks leadership and the "it" factor (for now).

            LAKERS #1 seed in the WEST
            by laram0
            I would love to see a Lakers vs Celtics final. Lakers have a very tough road to the finals though as the WEST is loaded with very good playoff teams.

            I would also like to see SHAQ and the Suns knock off the Spurs.

            There is a potential for a Lakers (KOBE) vs SUNS (SHAQ) series. Wouldn't the NBA love that.

            The MLB regular season is over.
            by laram0
            The playoffs will beginning very soon.

            American League Matchups:
            Red Sox vs Angels
            Yankees vs Indians

            National League Matchups
            Cubs vs Diamondbacks
            Rockies vs Phillies


            Who do we predict will be playing in the World Series?

            This may sound crazy and actually it's a shame that the Rockies and Phillies meet in the first round. I see the winner of that series representing the National League. I would like to see the Cubs make it but the Rockies and Phillies have both been hot lately. I see their winner advancing through to the big series.

            The Yankees and Red Sox are the matchup everyone here in the northeast wants to see. I do see the Yankees getting by the Indians but the Red Sox will have a tough time with the Angels. Wouldn't surprise me to see the Angels win that series.

            I'm going with the NEW YORK YANKEES vs COLORADO ROCKIES.

            I'd also like to take my hat off and bow to the Manager of the no-name DiamondBacks.
            They've had an unbelievable season. With a line up that no one really knows. Unless you're a DBacks fan.

            The New Lakers, and 10 Reasons they won't beat the Heat.
            by AvengerRam_old
            Lakers fans everywhere are celebrating their Summer moves that have brought them Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. But will they be able to unseat the Miami Heat as NBA Champs?

            Here are 10 reasons why they won't.

            1. The Oklahoma City Thunder
            I don't think the Lakers will be able to get past OKC. Look at the match-ups. Howard and Gasol can be kept in check by Perkins and Ibaka. Durant will torch MWP or whoever else has the burden of trying to guard him. Kobe will score, but he'll have to work for it matching up with Sefolosha and Harden. And does anyone want to rely on Steve Nash to guard Russell Westbrook? I'd put good money on a Thunder vs. Heat rematch.

            2. Teams are not made overnight.
            When Miami signed their big 3, everyone thought they had the best team "on paper." But it takes a while for players to learn to play together. It will be no different for the Lakers.

            3. Kobe and Nash are not a good combination.
            Steve Nash is at his best when he has the ball in his hand and runs the pick-and-roll. Does anyone think Kobe Bryant is just going to wait around on the wing while Nash runs the show? Mark my words. Kobe will be the primary ballhandler, and Nash will be relegated to the role of a spot-up shooter. While Nash can be effective in that role, that's not what made him a 2 time MVP.

            4. Age matters.
            With the exception of Howard, all of the Lakers best 6 players (including Antawn Jamison) are North of 32 years of age. If you don't think that matters, look at what happened to the Spurs in each of the last two years in the playoffs.

            5. Howard's foul shooting.
            When the Lakers had Shaq, his foul shooting issues didn't hurt them because they were so much better than any team in the league. This Lakers team, on the other hand, can't afford to rely on a 50% foul shooter in crunch time.

            6. The bench.
            The Lakers bench, apart from Jamison, is made up primarily of journeymen. Compare that to a Heat bench that has Udonis Haslem, Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis and Mike Miller.

            7. Three point shooting.
            The Lakers three point options are limited. Kobe is inconsistent. So is MWP. The bench does not have any prolific shooters. Nash is their only consistent option.

            8. Foul Trouble.
            The Heat are very good at getting opposing big men in foul trouble. With Steve Nash offering little resistance to quicker players like Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole (not to mention the big 3 attacking the basket), Howard could find himself sitting through a lot of a Heat/Lakers series.

            9. Dwyane Wade.
            Wade fought through injuries throughout the playoffs last year, and still put up very solid numbers. At the same time, because he was not 100%, some people seem to have forgotten just how good he is. When healthy - and Wade should be healthy this year after sitting out the Olympics to have a clean-up procedure...
