Eddie House thinks the Heat will be a lot like the 2008 Celtics, only on steroids. (Arizona Republic)
“I compare it to the year I went to Boston when the Big 3 got together in 2007,” House said. “But this is going to be even bigger. This is going to be Boston on steroids.”
The sad thing is, House might be right. The Heat have a ridiculous collection of talent. They even filled out their roster with good role players. Count me as legitimately afraid. But if the Celtics do beat them, if the Celtics DO take them down in the playoffs, nothing will be sweeter. You know, until a week later when the Celtics beat the Lakers in the Finals and Kobe gets to once again taste Shaq’s posterior.
