Boston Celtics Ray Allen: 'Best series I've been in'

Full story: Chicago Tribune

Game 6 near-hero Ray Allen called it "the best series of basketball I've been involved in," and he might have been speaking for everyone who has watched the Bulls and his Celtics slug it out in an NBA playoff series that is setting records for momentum swings.

I keep trying to register my opinion for the Trib poll on the outcome of game 7 but I can't find the "God only knows" button!

Ray Allen used to be one of my favorite players...I throw him in there with guys I want touching the ball in the last seconds of the game....next to Michael, Reggie, and Bird. I however HATE any team from Boston with such a passion that he no longer makes any list, except one of d-o-u-c-h-e bags. I wont come out and say I supported the Bulls all year, because I haven’t. Honestly, I really don’t care if we win it all or not……JUST BEAT BOSTON!!!!

Ray Allen is just amazing. God bless the Bulls for pulling that one out despite his performance. That game was 100% pure AWESOME. Go Bulls!

This game was unbelievable, but seriously I was just going crazy when we were up 11 in the 4th quarter and the Celtics went on a 20 point swing. I almost lost it then, who knew what would happen the rest of the way.... Bulls will win in Boston, Celtics have just blown it and they know it! Doc Rivers said it best, they played not to lose cuz they were tired. Guess what they'll still be tired tomorrow and the Bulls are too fired up not to realize it.

This is not meant to be a knock against Cubs fans for once. But I compare Boston fans to fans of the Chicago Cubs.

There are many loyal Chicago Cub fans who have been Cub fans for life and supported the team in the 70s, 80s and early 90s when they were lucky to draw 15k for an early season game. At the same time, there were many good Red Sox fans.

Somewhere over the past 10 years, mostly because of ESPN, losing became cool and everyone jumped on the Red Sox and Cubs bandwagon.

I moved to Las Vegas in 2003, from Chicago, and encounter obnoxious fans daily in the sportsbooks. 90% of the time, the obnoxious fan is either from Boston or a Chicago Cubs fan. When I ask them where they are from, they are usually from So Cal, or Iowa, or Arizona.

When I walk down the strip wearing my Bears jersey, I often get stopped by Patriot fans who want to talk smack for no reason at all.

Of course, recently, wearing my bulls t-shirt, I have been stopped by numerous Celtic fans who have a mix of excuses and smack.

I have come to the conclusion that Boston fans are truly the worst in sports. I am sure, like Cub fans, there are a few good, respectful Boston fans, but most of them are arrogant jerks!

I normally can't stand to watch NBA basketball, but this series has been truly unbelievable. I cannot wait to see game 7!

Incredible game. the 18-0 run was some of the most painful basketball i've watched. Two things I want to say; Noah is the MAN! and it's Miller Time Baby (shoot more threes you're money from beyond the arc)

If this series was a "finals," it might go down as one of the greatest of all times. As is, the Baby Bulls guts, stamina and talent have shocked the basketball world. That trade for Miller and Sammons is looking like one of the great steals in Bulls history.

No matter how it turns out in game 7, the Bulls are winners.

BEST SERIES EVER !!! HANDS DOWN GO BULLS !!!! Bulls should be able to take it in Boston. If the Bulls can withstand that first push by Boston and hang tough we will be making reservations in Orlando. I just want to say thank you to Kirk for finally standing up to Rondo who is a dirty player and got away with a goaltinding. The refs SUCK. GO BULLS !!!

I agree IronMike. I for one am a little sick of people saying this player is a jerk and that player should be thrown out. It's the playoffs - you are supposed to hate the other team. There is a lot of intensity in this series and the players are showing it. It makes it better as long as no one is trying deliberately to hurt anyone else.

I think the series should be appreciated for what it is - two good teams giving their all and making some amazing plays. It's been a great series regardless of who wins. Chicago is a good team that will get better in the next couple of years. The Celtics are a good team that is just beat up and missing players right now. But the games are great and I for one am glad that the refs are letting the players decide the games - which are turning out to be great games.

This may sound hokey but whatever team loses game 7, they have no reason to hang their heads. Both teams have put up a great fight and overcome their limitations. I can't wait for Saturday night!
