I used to post all kinds of Celtics talk at a primary wrestling message board. That board closed down and I looked for another one and googled this one. I joined and i'm here.

If I do come off as "cocky" I apologize but I actually live here in Boston and yes I've been a fan for as long as I can remember.

To those who are annoyed at the new found Celtic-fan fortune I say this. Don't hate and try to bare with some of us. The "city of losers" have started winning everything and every once in a while I have to eat some humble pie.

You guys for the most part are right though. We are spoiled and we can get obnoxious. I only ask to bare with us because if the shoe was on the other foot I may be calling for some sensible fans from where you're from.

Not that I think anyone should be cocky or not that we even have reason yet to be cocky, but we've been the butt of jokes for quite some time now. Last year, around the picking of the lottery, there were a number of threads making fun of us for missing out on one of the higher picks and ammusement concerning the general disarray of our franchise... When we were setting records for loses last year, a number of fans of other east coast teams had no problem making fun of our struggles... but all of a sudden, we're doing well and people want us to be humble after all the trash talking we endured? That's a little disingenuous.

Some Celtics "fans" will behave like fools... however, it won't be any worse than how others behaved when we were losing.

That's just it...this current Celtic team hasn't won anything in for me to 'just bare it'!!!

I don't really care why you joined. My post was for all Celtic fans, new or old.

"Boston should blow the Cavs out at least twice, maybe 3 times in a 4 game series."

"lol... they just beat the best team in the east, who had an 11 game winning streak.. and were mashing teams.. and you had to say that..

29-3.."

"Dallas can't handle the Celtics. SA won't care. Phoenix? Who knows."

"2nd round?? That's a pretty big assumption for the Cavs. Right now they are looking at playing either the Pistons or the Celtics unless they go on a run. And in any case, the Celts would BEAT DOWN the Cavs in the playoffs."

"I'm a Cleveland fan [Big Ticket] and we can't win that series. Being a fan doesn't mean you have to lose touch with reality you know." (this is my favorite )

"what will be eveyone's excuse against boston now? i have a feeling we'll see another "Boston is soo overrated" thread before noon tommorow. i'm waitin on it to see how pathetic it is"



Now each one of these posts have come within the last 18 hours. Hilarious. A franchise that has sucked for 5 years are not acting like someone owes them something.

MEMO...TEAMS WITH THE NBA'S BEST RECORD HASN'T MADE THE FINALS SINCE 2003!!!!!!!!!

Read this please. Multiple 60-win teams have gone Finals-less. You can be no different. I get that this is an exciting time for the Boston fanbase, but how about we get some perspective here. You guys are playing the regular season at a high intensity level. Kudos for you.

But remember, in the playoffs, every team will match that level. I know this because they've (Det, Cle) been places you haven't. That gives teams an advantage over you.

Now am I saying these teams will beat you? No, but you have to acknowledge and respect other teams have been where you desire to go.

you're just plain funny man! hahaha
werent you the one who started to bash the Celts??
you even question me being a fan of the Celts?
you're just WOW man!!!

The Celtics Fans aren't bad, it's the ones who feel the need to find new ways to bash them them every other day that are the real pains in the butt.. this thread is a perefect example, there was no reason for it whatsoever.. other than to create another worthless thread

I don't believe I have seen ANY over-the-top Celtic fans on the board.

and, btw, one of the joys of all sports is talking smack. If a few Celt fans are finally in a position to talk smack, I say, bring it on.

ps. Lakers are still the greatest franchise of all time!

I don't see how the past 4 years have any revelence to the season 2007-2008. Did Sacramento making the playoffs for 8 straight years mean that htey were guranteed to make the playoffs the next year? No.

That's true, I can remember those threads clearly. Good post. I think you guys deserve to enjoy some success after all this time. I'll be pulling for the Celts as they are from the East and the Heat, well...I don't think we'll be going to the finals

how is it that KG and Ray have a better wholesome reputation than Melo and Iverson?

Excellent points. KG will sink to dirty play in a heartbeat: but he's called "passionate."

Iverson and Melo can eat Ice Cream with their families at Dairy Queen: THUGS!

This is a great thread. Let the some of these Celtic fans tell it, the Celtics are 4 time defending champs!

Personally, I think the Lebron led Cavs would beat the Celtics, great team though they be.

Yeah, that's it. Carmelo and AI are just victims of the media. It has nothing to do with running around the city with guns, getting in fights on and off the court, dressing like gang bangers, posing in videos with drug dealers, running around with a posse of thugs, speaking in ebonics, proclaiming to be thugs on rap albums, getting convicted of felonies, etc.
If you don't want to be called a thug, don't act like one.
