Celtics Don’t Have The Magic

The Celtics lost a double-digit lead last night, and fell in Orlando to the Magic, 96-94. Kevin Garnett looked bad, failing to finish at least two lobs in front of the hoop, and getting beat baseline by Rashard Lewis on the game winning hoop. Garnett says his knee isn’t a problem, but it sure looked like it was.

    Me write sports. Me like RBIS and HR. No like OPS and UZR.

    Me take Patriots’ coach lunch money.

    Have the marlins go to the AL east, have the rays go to the NL east, build a sparkly stadium in the southie waterfront, and move the rays to boston?

    I agree with gammo’s conclusion though that places like charlotte, san antonio, etc are much more likely destinations.

    While the Celtics are losing, is there anything funnier than “Baghdad” Greg Dickerson’s sideline reports?

    • Tony

      True, but I don’t think anything can top the sight of Dickerson actually riding on the duck boats during the 2008 championship parade as if he were actually part of the team. That was pretty pathetic.
