After overcoming a 24-point deficit last night against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Boston Celtics are on the brink of another NBA Championship. With just one more win, Boston fans will become exponentially more obnoxious and annoying.
The Celtics were phenomenal Thursday night as they knocked of the Lakers 97-91 to take a 3-1 lead in the series. Most prognosticators (Perry) had the Lakers winning in six games or less.
Kevin Garnett was asked if he could sense the fans getting closer to pissing off the rest of the nation.
“Yeah,” Kevin Garnett said. “I can taste it.” (okay, he wasn’t really asked that)
No team has ever overcome more than a 15-point deficit after the first quarter, and Elias Sports Bureau said it was the largest comeback in the finals since 1971.
If the Celtics pull this series out, it will give Boston fans all the more reason to be loud and belligerent. Previously, the Red Sox and Patriots were the main reason.
I wonder if the Lakers will fire Jack Nicholson over this.
I can’t believe the Lakers blew it last night. They looked as though they were going to cruise. I hate the Celtics and Boston’s stupid self-rightous fans.
