2010 NBA Finals: Celtics’ Paul Pierce May Be Right After All

June 9th, 2010 by Bob Warja Leave a reply »
When the Boston Celtics' Paul Pierce shouted his now infamous quote following Game Two, many laughed as the Celtics dropped Game 3 to the Los Angeles Lakers.

But hey, why laugh? In fact, Pierce may turn out to be a prognosticator of sorts. This series may not be coming back to LA.

But not for the reasons that Pierce undoubtedly meant.

No, it’s not because the Celtics were going home to sweep the remaining games of the series, and topple the mighty Lakers before they had a chance to go back to the Staples Center. 

Instead, it may be the Lakers who end this series in Boston. Such irony!

Yet, this hasn’t stopped the Celtics from running their mouths. Celtics coach Doc Rivers even got into the act, saying that the Lakers Derek Fisher is a “flopper.”

Look, it's not good to poke the bear. 

It's fine to be confident. The 1985 Chicago Bears did a now infamous video proclaiming them as Super Bowl champs even before the playoffs started.

But you have to back up your words with actions. And 36 percent shooting by Pierce simply does not do that.
