    Boston is showing they're a team that tries hard in the regular season (they're basically the only ones) and literally has no extra gears to turn to in the postseason.

    The Horford signing was an abject disaster, and regardless of who they get in the draft and free agency, they're still going to be a team with nothing in the rebounding department.

    You must not watch much NBA if you think they are the only ones who try hard.

    Maybe not the only ones, but top seeds don't usually play near 100% all the time. There is no reason to with the way the NBA is set up. Making the postseason for those teams is a sure thing.

    Thibodeau basically got fired as the Bulls coach because he had them playing too hard and asked for too much of them during the regular season. The theory (that I'm not sure I agree with) was that they were exhausted come playoff time.

    Also, if this series continues the way it has for Boston so far, the honeymoon period for Brad is over.

    Not so much playing too hard, but running them into the ground by playing them excessive minutes.

    There is far more effort and intensity in these playoff games versus the 80 plus regular season games. These playoff games are interesting to watch.

    Hopefully the ppl of Boston are more pissed at Danny Ainge (not making the trade for Jimmy Butler) than Brad...

    With all that Chicago is rumored wanted for Butler (both Nets picks and players like Jae Crowder and Marcus Smart), I honestly can't blame Ainge for not pulling that trigger. They'll have cap space for someone like Hayward and they'll probably wind up with another guard to pair up with IT next season, so they should be better, but when a 1 seed looks so overmatched against an 8 seed, fans aren't going to be happy about it.

    Brad just got a technical in the Wizards game! There has been seven total techs called , 2 disqualifications and one ejection. Great game!

    This is primarily for those living under a rock...the Celtics are playing in the Eastern Conference Finals! Congrats to Brad and the team.

    And that should pretty much slam the door on some of the delusional IU fans who were convinced Brad was waiting to bolt to Bloomington at his first opportunity.:rolleyes:

    You'd like to think so, but sadly, when the Archie Miller coaching era ends, he'll undoubtedly be the first name that gets mentioned.

    Anyone want to say the NBA is boring and a 2 team league again this season?
    C's, Cavs, Bucks, Philly-League Pass Team, Wiz
    Dubs gotta go through Rockets, Lakers-League Pass Team, Thunder, Spurs, Suns-League Pass, T Wolves, Blazers, etc...

    The NBA Offseason > NBA Playoffs > NBA Regular Season

    Once the season gets going, barring major injuries to key people (i.e. Durant and Lebron), it's still a two team league in my opinion. The Celtics, even with all the moves they made, aren't beating the Cavs, and the Cavs still aren't beating the Warriors.

    I still think it will be Cleveland - Golden State in the Finals, but I think the ECF will be much better than it was this year.

    Kyrie, Smart, Hayward, Brown, Horford >>>>>> IT, Smart, Bradley, Crowder, Horford

    Of course, now there's serious talk that DWade will go to Cleveland at some point this season. So it could be a one-sided ECF again also.
