Not only that, but they have been sent home the past 2 years by the Miami.

There have been legit excuses. Last year Miami was on the brink of losing to Celts. First finals matchup the year before, Rondo was playing with one arm, which left little chance of Celtics winning that series. Then last year, Celtics had Bradley, green, wilcox missing, no courtnee lee or Jason terry, and Allen was playing hurt. Miami had bosh out for half the series but Celtics had more personnel missing.

Excuses will always be excuses. How about this...Boston had a 3-2 lead then proceeded to sh!t the bed @ home while LeBron dropped 45-15 & 5....

You're going to sit there and act like if Miami lost that series, that you wouldnt have rolled out the "Bosh was injured" card?

Hold up... you mean, like the Celtic fans who bitched and moaned that they were injured??? ......Heat won the Ship and have sent the Celtics home 2 years in a row. It is what it is. All i know is, Ainge & Doc are chasing the Heat, not the other way around...

You honestly think I'm the type to hide behind an alt and jump from account to account when I've shared so much personal shit here?
Yes. I have proof but I'll just leave it at that, just stop posting on an alt

LOL. They are borderline 8th seed right now and are old and injury prone...there is no way they are "taking it easy".

And if they are "taking it easy", that's the dumbest sh*t i've ever seen, because they are going to play Miami in the first round if they stay at the 8th seed.

I don't think there is any NBA teams taking it easy. Celtics aren't neccessarily taking it easy, they are just not kicking into a more intense mode which is saved for when it is required later on in the season. Their core is old, they are waiting around for the playoffs, very hard to channel in during the reg season, when you know your team is built for the playoffs. They will be fine, I expect them to finish around 5th or 6th seed by the end of the year. Heat fans should still be very wary of them, good coach and good players.

They aren't taking it easy but they're not playing the absolute hardest. Veteran teams do a good job of masking this. Judging by Docs substitutions, He seem to rather balance out minutes and take a couple losses along the way. KG has looked pissed because you can tell he wants to play more.

This team will be probably 3-5 games over .500 by the break, and then be 10-14 games over .500 like they usually do.

They do get up for big opponents though. SA owns us. Since DUncan has been there I dont think we ever really beat those guys. 2008 Celtics still lost to the Spurs. They just own us.

Typical celtic type season. They will hover over .500 right now then turn it on after the playoffs.

Why do you have to make threads like this and ruin the reputation of the rest of us Celtics fans?

Agreed. Jackass is shooting his mouth off.

Celts got a long long way to go from what I have seen so far.

They are not coasting; they haven't rounded into form yet.
