Otis smith, once said that no tough guy will play on this team, reference to Iverson. Well maybe we need a tough gm that is not afraid to deal with player,s with strong ideals.

The celtics can pretty much say the same thing you just said. They didn't come to play at the start of game one. Ray had a bad game 1. Rondo had a bad game 1. If they stay focused and come to play, they should have no problem with the magic, right?
Show me games in the past 2 years that the Celtics should have won with their hands tied behind their backs but didn't. Thats because there was only maybe 1 or 2... and for the magic theres many.

You don't get my argument at all do you. The Celtics took care of lower level teams like it was yesterday's business. The magic didn't. The magic beat the division leaders and the celtics struggled. This is not saying anything about the talent levels of either team... This is saying more about the tenacity and fire of our big 3... or lack of it.

This is what I mean by playing down to the competition. Right now without KG the magic are playing below the competition... They are treating the Celtics like they would the Grizzlies... and its obvious that the Celtics are better than the grizz. THey have been doing that crap for the past 2 years...(even though this year was a little better, but not much)

Last but not least... I expect a better smarter effort for a team in the 2nd round of the playoffs... I mean its not like they are playing against the 97 bulls! Theres no excuse to not play a smart game with a decent effort.

Viagrafalls says that KG is one of the top five players in teh league.

Seriously you think garnett is in the top five? IN what categories, points no, rebounds no, blocks no, steals no, fg% no,well how about assists, no. well is he in the top five on anything. Oh yea he's #5 in all your hearts. Yes i will admit he is a good player, not great not superb, he has been considered the big ticket for how long. Lets see with the t-wolves he was their star and where did he lead them. No where. Then he goes to boston with Pierce and Allen. And he still really does not perform. All he does is be a good all around player, nothing special in any one category. So in my opinion he is nothing more than a well qualified over paid role player, that when given minimal shots and good players around him he does a respectable job. The one area in his game that he exells at is firing up his team on defense. But if recall my the rules from the NBA correctly your not allowed to have two hands on someones back, yet every time he does pushing them out of the key. for example when playing against a potent low post team, the man makes a drop step and for some reason the offensive player jumps five feet farther back and is now off balance. See i ould just like for teh game to be called fairly.
