Ok here's my rant
I continue seeing comments from Celtic fans everywhere excusing any losses by reminding us that this team is playing with "house money." I get that we don't have our 2 best players (each of which are top 15-20 nba players ), but those are excuses. On paper we are still more talented than the cavs. Their 3rd best player is 37 year old korver. We have horford, brown, Tatum, rozier, morris, smart, etc
We know what our guys are capable of. Unless you believe Larry Nance jr and George hill are better than rozier and Tatum, then we def have the better talent and coaching, the home court advantage, the best defender of lebron in the nba, we have everything on our side to get us to the finals and we should end this series with a win. Anything short of winning this series is an excuse.
List of excuses:
"Celtics are too young."
"c's have no stars"
"opposing team has lebron who's the best player so they will win by default"
"playing with house money, no kyrie or Hayward"
Next year won't be as easy as people think. The east will have better teams. Who knows what free agents Philly might be able to snag... They might even pry Baynes and smart Too. I don't think they will but you never know.
. Lebron, kawhi, and Paul george will be somewhere maybe together waiting for us to. I like our chances next year, but we have chances this year as well
House money is no excuse for brown getting swatted by old man korver like 3 times, and many other mistakes we saw like missed dunks and layups
Ps- I do think we are playing with house money, but I want to win too. I will only use house money as a way of making our wins more satisfying.
