ray allen mvp for the series,he has quietly and steadily led this celtics team to where they are.while the rest of the team is great,,they are not afraid to blow their own horn.ray allen was a class act at uconn and is a class act in the nba,as he will be in whatever he chooses to do after basketball

Four things come to mind as I watch this "charade" unfold and the continual fawning by the media:

1. This Laker team "ain't" ever going to compare to the Lakers of the Magic and Kareem era. This team couldn't carry their gym bags.

2. This Celtic team "ain't" ever going to compare to the Bird/McHale era and they sure as hell could never compete with Russell, Havlichek (spelling) and K.C. Jones.
Those teams would beat them like a drum.

3. ANY team that loses a 24 point lead on their home court does not deserve to be christianed "World Champions."

4. Kobe may be the best player in the game today but he damn sure isn't on M. Jordans level - nor Dr. J - nor Oscar Robertson - nor Jerry West - nor a great number of other players of the past.

The real tragedy is that the NBA now consists of two very obvious shortcomings, an abundance of bad players and equally bad referees.

Stern will continue to see the ratings decline.

Couldn't agree more. It was great to see Shaq win a championship in Miami after leaving L.A.

Of course these guys will never be the "greats" that you guys refer to, but you have to admit that the Celtics wanted that win and they took it regardless of how it was done. Ray Allen has and always will be my favorite basketball player. I've been watching him since the UCONN days and he can rally a team like no other. Unless you yourself really know how to play basketball, I don't think anyone has the right to talk trash about any of these guys. They're on the court now. The past is the past. Leave it there...

You forgot number No.5. Back then it was basket-b-a-l-l. Now it's basket-b-r-o! Or better yet, basket-b-r-a-w-l!!!! Who cares about this series!!!

And when it's over it'll be Cryby Bryant asking to be traded. And maybe Phil Jackson should change his name to Phil McKrackin!!! I think the problem with this series is that they haven't supplied Kobey with enough room service Hos!

Having all those phony Hollywood celebrities getting constant airtime is reason enough to root for the Celtics.

They are still playing? Funny, nobody where I work is discussing this at all.

NBA will be on tape delay within 2 years, just like the late 70's.
