    Default Boston Celtics are the worst #1 seed of all time

    If you don't think so, you might as well off yourself.

    This is embarrassing.

    Maybe the NBA as a whole is just flat out embarrassing, I don't know.

    Thug life.

    New York Knicks #8 also beat the Miami Heat #1 in the late 90's I think it was.

    The 92-93 Suns were almost the 1st team to suffer the fate. They went down 0-2 to the 8th seeded Lakers on their home floor in PHX. Only to come back and win the next two in LA, then win game 5 in PHX. Of course back when the first round was only a best of 5.

    This bulls team might have 3 hof'ers on it which makes them an interesting study. Two are old but and hoiberg is atrocious but not often does the 8th seed have the best player on the floor vs the 1 seed either.

    Golden State vs Dallas was my favorite series. That crowd pretty much won that series. And b Davis not being fat Davis.

    20/20 but never impressed with Beantown this year. Take out Thomas' 4Q heroics most games & they're a 4/5 seed.

    In the history of the NBA playoffs, higher-seeded teams that lose the first two games of a series are 3-20 all-time in advancing to the next round.

    I agree with your take, but I think they're closer to a 3/4 than a 4/5. Either way it tells you how good of a coach Brad Stevens is

    Cavs would sweep the bulls
    Washington should 4-1 them

    Figured they had a good shot at beating the rest of the scrubs in the East.

    Chicago was third in the East in point differential, and 8th in the NBA.

    I don't think you've been watching the same Cavaliers team that I've seen this year.

    I'm guessing I have been watching the same Cavs team. We just have differing opinions on the Cavs vs Bulls. It's ok.

    Stevens might be the most overrated coach in the NBA right now

    2-10 record in the playoffs.

    Stevens is easily one of the top coaches in the league, he took 4th seed talent and got the 1 seed. The C's have one great player and a bunch of role players, they overachieved, that's a sign of good coaching. I'm not concerned with a small sample of 12 playoff games, before he's done in Boston I expect he'll have plenty of postseason success

    Who are you considering the Celtics' great player?

    Horford is the one that teams would trip over themselves to sign, not Thomas......

    But agree that they have a lot of great role players. It's the same story as every year in the NBA...come playoff time, you need a star. Nothing has changed.

    Celtics should trade off Thomas/Smart/Bradley/Olynk for Anthony Davis and Jimmy Butler and then use their draft picks to get Tony Allen or a top-notch on ball defender/point guard to replace Smart and Bradley, and then they'd be winners.

    PG: TBD
    SG: Butler
    SF: Crowder
    PF: Horford
    C: Davis

    That team wrecks the East for years.


    On another note, how bout some love for Hoiberg!?

    Default Re: Boston Celtics are the worst #1 seed of all time

    Hell, they have the draft picks and assets to trade for anybody. Get Wall. Tell Crowder to eat peanuts and stack the bench with cheap vets and rookie deals. It would be 3.5 max deals (if you can convince Horford to keep current contract and not renegotiate a year)...but Boston could handle it. Wall/Butler/Crowder/Horford/Davis...that would be sweet.

    Default Re: Boston Celtics are the worst #1 seed of all time

    lol Horford is a soft bum. He loves soccer and only plays basketball to pay the bills. Could explain him averaging less than 7 rebounds as the primary big...that is beyond pathetic

  33. #33

    Default Re: Boston Celtics are the worst #1 seed of all time

    I agree he's not worth the money, but Thomas, as great as he's been, will never be an elite PG (by elite I mean top 3 pg in the league). Come playoff time guys like Butler/Kyrie/Paul/Steph, etc will continue to work him.

    Horford being an overpaid pussy is why he won't or shouldn't be able to come back in two years when the cap has gone up even more and request an even more obscene contract

    Can we stop with the #1 seed bullshit as a way of validating the Celtics? Yes they were #1 seed but they only had 53 wins.

    With 53 wins, they'd be:
    2016- 3rd seed
    2015- 3rd seed
    2014- 3rd seed
    2013- 3rd seed
    2011- 4th seed

    And by the way.. they had a point differential of +2.7 this year. Guess what that makes them? The 3rd best team in the east.

    So basically they are a 1 seed because the rest of the conference is weaker and Cleveland basically handed it to them over the last 2 weeks.

    He hasn't been able to adjust to the playoffs. The team straight up quit last night.
