I think I’m the only Celtics fan in the world rooting for the Heat to win this series. Not because I like the Heat (I don’t). Not because I have anything against Tom Thibodeau (how could I?), Brian Scalabrine (I think about writing him love letters at least twice a week) or Derrick Rose (he seems like a good enough guy). And definitely not because Lebron James seems like a swell, humble guy. I just appreciate great basketball. And the Heat are playing the best basketball of any team right now, including the Mavericks.
I predict a Heat win tonight. After they beat the Celtics, they more or less won the championship. It was like when the Red Sox finally outlasted the Yankees, and the Cardinals were nothing but the finish line Boston needed to cross. Beating the Celtics gave Miami all the confidence it needed.
If I’m wrong, well, just pretend I never wrote this post.
And as always:
Have at it in the comment section, folks.
