First post, been lurking here for many years and it seems like I know some of you guys from this thread and the Sox game thread.....but I was so disheartened by the occurrences on and off the court that I felt compelled to sign up and vent a bit.
I feel absolutely sick about the last two games, not only as a Celtic fan, but a fan of the NBA. I just feel that the NBA is treating me like an asshole. Stern destroys the trade of Chris Paul to the Lakers, controversy ensues but is quickly forgotten about. Fast forward to these last two days and I've seen things that really freakin' bother me. I'm shocked beyond belief that Dan Crawford is allowed on the court, let alone reffing playoff games after the Mavs debacles and connections with Donaghy. How does this happen? It's like the league is shoving it in our face. 5 Technical fouls, no biggie right? Right? It's just pissy Celtic fans crying again. Then last night happens with the atrocious disparity and blatant non calls and I'm supposed to just sit and smile and say things like "Well, that's the NBA for ya, I guess Miami was just driving to the basket more. Ayup." THEN, the results of the Draft Lottery came in. Ok, come on now, you gotta be fucking with me at this point right? And we as a loyal fanbase are just supposed to sit here and watch this absolute corruption take place? Am I alone with this thinking?
To make matters worse, I'm watching Sportscenter after the game and the top ten plays come up. One of the plays is the Wade karate kick layup. The fuck face announcer actually says during the clip "Ha ha, here's Wades MMA style lay up, ha ha ha." They're fucking laughing at us, the league is laughing at us. Fuck them. I'm tired of being treated like the typical mouth breather posting on youtube. I love the Celtics, I've been with them for over 35 years, but I'm not just a fan of the uniform, but also the game. You know, there's part of me that is so fucking happy that this may be the twilight years of the current big three, as the league has become a fucking joke and this joke of a league doesn't deserve classic warriors like KG, Allen, Pierce, and Rondo.
Fuck you Stern, no really FUCK YOU.
