I'm sorry but the following two posts just baffle me as to why you would want the Celtics to lose out on a playoff slot.  now I understand that even though it's ridiculously improbable to advance from the eight spot, it is not totally impossible to win a championship because guess what, you just made the playoffs and if you caught Miami in the first round you know freaky things happen with the C's and the Heat.  tanking is one thing but to not want to watch your team in the playoffs, takes the cake!!!


Celtics39 said.....I wouldnt even watch the series. Anything less than the 5th worst record is a dissapointment honestly.

But we're talking about watching the Celtics.  you are a Celtic fan, right???

This team will get better but I will stick with them through their lean times also. I'm not going to someday hear they got better and start watching again, that's a fair weather fan!!!

You're right I did say that. Quote me on it all day please, because it's true. The only reason this team could make the playoffs is because the eastern conference is so awful and that's no way to win...

Guess what, you know what a 4 game series against the Pacers or Heat would look like? Pretty much the same way every game we play against a contender this year looks like... a blowout, embaressing loss.

So where does that leave us... this same roster and the 16th seed? Great we'll work our way up to medicore. We can just be the Hawks now.

Guess what...2008 wouldn't have happened without the 5th pick in the draft, getting Ray here and KG agreeing to resign. Guess what... we don't improve as a team unless we get a top pick, an asset, in this draft, which we either get an impact player or make a trade like 07. DA isn't stupid, he knows he needs the pick, and he isn't going to mess around with it like tank teams without a plan like the Cavs and Bobcats do. This is part of the plan.

I watch every game I can because I want to see the young players develop. So I'm not a fair weather fan. But I'd be foolish to root for a playoff spot. I want to contend again... not be a feel good story. This is the Celtics, it's championship or bust, not garbage team made it to the playoffs and got blown out. We don't need the playoffs to feel good like Raptors or Wizards or Bobcats do. We just don't...

Just because it's bad basketball in a Celtics jersey doesn't mean that it isn't bad basketball. I'd root for the Celtics to win if they grabbed the 8th slot, obviously, but it'd be hard to watch them get run out of the gym in a four or five game series against Indiana or Miami.

I think anybody who is posting here right now or during a weeknight game btw two subpar Hawks/Celtics squads would fall outside the realm of "fair weather fan".

Questioning their fanhood wouldn't exactly be the right route to go...

At one point I thought the tankers "losing" philosophy was for the possibility of getting a top draft pick but what we have here are people not wanting the C's to make the playoffs just because of their bad record!!!  I'm sorry but that's ludicris. do you know how many real fans are pulling for their team to sneak into the 8 spot.
at least the tankers have a end game to their theory but to just root for your team to lose because thier record isn't good enough for you....then yes, I am questioning your fanhood!!!

Well if you continue any further your participation on this message board will be in jeopardy. Questioning others fan hood is explicitly against our rules. So drop it and count this as your warning.
