Where's Larry when you need him? Is this Kevin's Kurse as he once again cannot get out of the first round?

Being a Celtic fan I have to admit that if they lose game 7. It will go down as the biggest gag in NBA history.

Maybe the Celtic's play against Atlanta has something to do with the fact that...

1. They are old and tired. The "big three" have logged a lot of minutes and aren't as young as most of their competition. There is absolutely no fresh legs or youth on this team.

2. The Celtics have very little playoff experience. The "big three" have never accomplished anything in the playoffs. With the exception of Cassell, their bench has little playoff experience.

3. The Celtics are feeling an immense amount of pressure to win a championship. Everyone assumed they would win the east with no trouble. Now they are being tested, and the pressure is mounting.

4. The Boston Garden is one of the softest playoff crowds I have heard in YEARS so to the Atlanta Hawks it will be like walking in a quiet building just there to play some ball. Notice how those ATL fans got loud because they havent seen playoff basketball in that city for 9 years.

5. Seriously, but Paul Pierce needs to control his little gangster attitude if he wants his team to advance to the next round and I have seen better games from KG.

6. Hawks win game 7
