No single win can mean anything at all at this point. The team lost the opportunity to "redeem" themselves a long time ago. Follow a six game winning streak with a six game losing streak. What a joke.
This is exactly my point. The celtics have already proven they can beat good teams. What always happens after that tho? I'm just saying we're at the point now where no one win is huge. Do we need the win? Yeah. Will it mean we're back on track? Absolutely not. Even after winning 6 in a row the celtics have proven they are still not ready to be consistent. So why would one win against miami prove anything? I know I'm being negative but I'm just telling it like it is.
I'm sorry, but you're not really telling anything like it is. It's a looooong season. Ups and downs happen. We look like crap right now, but it's certainly not too late for big wins just like it's not too late for bad losses. Unfortunately, tonight's game squarely falls in the latter category. Time to go see if we can't start to check off a few in the former.
No see, I'm basing what I'm saying off of what is actually happening. You're basing your thoughts on what you hope will happen. I never said it was TOO LATE. I just haven't seen a team that looks like they will turn into some championship team all of a sudden.
I see a team that is mediocre. Maybe above average on their best day. The only reason you feel the way you feel is because you're a C's fan and you can't for the life of you take off your homer hat to be realistic about this team even for a second.
There's no need for insults. I've given my reasons plenty of times for why I think this team still has the capability to turn this season around.
I feel that a lot of it hinges on Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett's ability to up their levels of play as the team heads into the playoffs. I'm not saying that it's an absolute given that they will be able to considering their ages, but it does buoy my hopes that they've both been down this road before on numerous occasions. Eventually, father time will catch up with them for good, but I think that there is a reasonable sliver of hope that they can keep the grim reaper of b-ball ability at bay for at least one more run.
You don't have to agree, but I see no need for your dogged insistence that everyone must see things from your point of view, or to insult those who don't.
