You thought I was going to laugh at the Philadelphia 76ers for being overconfident when they’ve never accomplished anything except toppling a No. 1 seed essentially playing without its top two players. You thought I’d rip apart the 76ers for being overconfident when they needed two obscene shots from Evan Turner and a bank job from Lavoy Allen just to prevail by a single point in Game 2. You thought I’d find it absurd that a team without a single player who has won an NBA title could be overconfident against a team with championship experience like the Celtics.
And yes, you thought right. If the Philadelphia 76ers actually entered Game 3 as an overconfident bunch, they were also a stupid bunch. But I can promise they won’t be overconfident anymore. As Eminem might say, “snap back to reality.”
