Just got home and saw the score, was really hoping they would have ended it tonight. Not going to be easy going back to Miami

To be fair, the officials literally handed the Lakers the game in the 2nd half of that game 7.

Is Pierce definitely done? I feel like he's the only one of the Big 3 to return, if any of them were to.

Tonight the officials were horrific as usual... but the Celtics offense was too. They finished what, 1-15 with 3's or something? Come on, of course you are going to lose....

Don't forget about Bradley. And I think Ainge will use the # 21 and # 22 picks as trade bait to bring in another player or to move up a bit in the draft.

Shocker.
Sniveling, weak, whiny, Playoffs-only bandwagoners - jumping ship with the slightest adversity . . .

Never saw THAT coming.
Gonna take some time to get my head around it.

Pink hat is an acceptable term for the Celtics. I should know, I am one.

I really don't think they'll beat the Heat, sadly.

But I've learned not to doubt this team. If they do get knocked out, there'll be pools of blood on the court. I bet Pierce has a huge game. I'll be rooting for them. Won't be easy, but anything is possible. I don't think they'll make it past them, but they sure as hell can. If we see 2008/10 Pierce, Garnett, and Allen, and if Rondo is at least a fifth of what he's been, we take this game.

They have Celtics Pride. It is something unique and can't be explained.

I may only watch a few games during the regular season and then religiously in the playoffs now, but having grown up obsessed with the Celtics, I know to never count them out.

I'm not ready to say goodbye to Ray, KG and P2 just yet.

I'm a bandwagon Celtics fan, but that was pretty cool last night with the fans chanting "Lets Go Celtics" non-stop for 5 minutes at the end of last night's game. Big props to the diehard Celtics fans.

I've said it many times, I really don't like basketball at all. The flopping and crying is atrocious.

This series with the Heat so far has been more entertaining than any NHL series since the 1st round. I would prefer Boston to pull it off, just cuz I find them to be a more likable squad, but honestly I'm not really into it. I just watch it for good basketball, and they have delivered. Loved the ONE knuckle push up from Rondo got the crowd going which was a very cool moment. This team just seems to have a similar magic to it that the Bruins had last year, so all credit to the Celtics and their legitimate fans. They've made it a fun couple of weeks here.

I don't know about that, but they are definitely up there!! To think that early this season, people were writing them off and ready to trade everybody, and now they are one game from the finals. Just an incredible will from this team.

I don't know if they have enough left in them to win game seven but they have made things extremely entertaining!

Bradley Rondo
KG Howard Pierce

We definitely won't have Bradley if we have Howard. He would have to be in the deal, with the picks + futures, and another piece. IMO, Howard is not worth it especially since he hasn't shown much of a desire in Boston and is a free agent after next year.

I would bet the house that KG is back. Pierce will retire a Celtic. Ray could be more doubtful than the other two, but I can definitely see him back. We just need a couple of solid complimentary pieces (with one being a good rebounder). Pietrus is all but a lock to come back here, unless we don't want him back.

I can see us adding CJ Miles from Utah. He is athletic and can shoot a bit. Perfect fit for our bench. Can't forget about Jeff Green either.

Their bench was solid with Green and Wilcox seemingly going into the season. I doubt Ray is back, unless it's at the vet minimum and a bench role.

NBA Referees for Saturday night's Eastern Conference finals Game 7 in Miami will be Joey Crawford, Scott Foster and Mike Callahan. #Celtics

Joey Crawford - gets investigated by IRS and fired but Stern lets him come back
Scott Foster - Tim Donaghy's right hand man in rigging NBA games and is somehow allowed to still ref
Mike Callahan - another **** head

Could Stern have said "the Heat will win this series" any louder?

I really hope the C's pull off the miracle just to screw with whatever gambling ring has Stern by the short hairs.
