:( Looking back at NBA Finals 2010, Game 7...

Today, I was watching a mini-movie on Game 7 of the NBA Finals in which the Lakers won.

Now that we look back at the Game 7 of NBA Finals 2010, what do you wish we did different that would have won us the game.

I know Perkins was out, but is there anything in that specific game that you severely regret? Such as a specific decision by Doc, or a specific play by the Celtics, or even a specific ref call (Please don't say all calls).

The Lakers were up by or had tied it up by 5 minutes. What I regret is that I now I think Doc should have put Pierce, KG, and Allen on the bench for 1 minute. Sure they would not have fully gotten their energy back in a minute, but it surely would have helped them (I say this from my own basketball playing experience).

I know its heartbreaking, disheartening, and sad to talk about that game, but let this be the thread to pour out your feelings and lighten your heart.

  • Everyone's excited for the new era.
I wished the refs called that "up-and-down" travel on Gasol that put up LA by 6 with a little over a minute left.

To me, it was pretty clear, and the ref on the baseline had a good look at it IIRC.

I also wish Kobe had continued to chuck in the fourth.  That strategy worked in our favor for the first three quarters.

No joke. The network replayed it, and it was clear that Gasol's foot touched the floor before he got the shot off. What a joke that was.

The only thing I really wish the Celtics did differently, that they actually had control of, was play TA more.  Even though he had a bum ankle at that point, not giving him more court time really burned out Pierce/Ray.

TA really came into his own at the end of that season, and was playing exceptionally well.  Even after the ankle injury, he still continued to play very solid defense.

Otherwise, I really rather not think about it.

I wish the refs didn't suddenly start calling touch fouls in the fourth quarter when they had been allowing both teams to play physically all night.

Don't disagree at all...he needs to get back to that
I think the franchise created the "this is rondos team now" monster but let's not turn it into that

Rondo is an extremely talented player who will never miss you if you're open for a nanosecond. His main issue over the past several years is that he has progressively fallen in love with this ability of his.

All this thread confirms for me is that the Los Angeles Lakers will ALWAYS reserve a special place in my heart...more special than MIA...more special than those 80's Sixers-Celtics games.

That Feb 7 win takes some pain away...but I'd STILL love for LA and BOS to dance ONE MORE time this June.

Only LA's glorious defeat, at the hands of BOS, in a seven-game series - in June - will make me feel better about 09-10.

C'mon LA! Get it together! Make the post-season!

Beat OKC!

BOS - Beat MIA!

MIA and OKC are perhaps the two biggest roadblocks to BOS-LA meeting one more time - and BOS getting some revenge for that Game 7 loss.

LA's beaten OKC this season - we've beaten MIA.

I'm still hopeful we can meet again in June.

I guess if I could change one thing - it would've been for a consistently-officiated game.

Derek Fishers layup in game 3

 :'( :'(

Game 3 in General was the pivotal difference maker for them.

Which was even more painful for me, being that I was at that game.

Rondo is an extremely talented player who will never miss you if you're open for a nanosecond. His main issue over the past several years is that he has progressively fallen in love with this ability of his.

   I'd say much of the team was fairly fond of this, all of PP/KG/RA/Shaq (and others) were having some of the best shooting years of their careers with Rondo feeding them the ball. It's popular to blame Rondo for everything that's been wrong with the Celts offense the last month or two but it's not like we haven't had a ton of success with Rondo controlling the ball.
