Celts: 'Naysayers should have known better'
so here we are. The team nobody said could win this series -- and yes, that
absolutely, positively included me -- the team that is too old, too fragile,
too hurt, whose margin of error is too small, whose bench is too anemic, whose
lack of athleticism is too much of a handicap, is now up 3-2 in the conference
finals, with a chance Thursday night to close it out on the parquet floor."
Who thought this was going to happen? At the start of this short season, I had a hunch this team would hold its head high and fight hard to prove a point. But this? I didn't expect this. ... But remember: It's not over till it's over. One more win. One more agonizing, frustrating, hair-pulling, come-from-behind, blow-a-huge-lead win -- and then it's off to the Finals.
