Cleveland Plain-Dealer columnist Bud Shaw used a decent portion of his column posted late Wednesday to preview the Celtics-Cavs series. Here are some excerpts:
Pierce left a game in a wheelchair in 2008 ago only to return a little while later. Not a week later. Not even a day later. I mean a few minutes later. Before the quarter ended.
LeeLee Sobieski wasn’t as convincing in “Joan of Arc.”
Kevin Garnett‘s act at this point in his career — think Curly Washburn from “City Slickers” meets Andrew Dice Clay — has lately given Pierce some dramatic competition.
I also believe that Pierce will go down in a heap at least once against the Cavs and ride to the Celtics bench on a siren-equipped Segway.
Mo Williams saying goodbye to Derrick Rose and hello to Rajon Rondo is covered under the “cruel and unusual punishment” clause of the Eighth amendment…
This is not the first time Bud Shaw has used his column in part to provide commentary on the Boston Celtics. He declared them dead in his March 20 column:
The way the Celtics are going, to actually appear ready to pounce come playoff time will require an imaginative taxidermist.
The Celtics are dragging Kevin Garnett up and down the court like the whole bunch of them are auditioning for Weekend at Bernie’s IV.
When the Celtics get in a running game with a more athletic team, they often need IVs administered at halftime.
Four out of five doctors recommend formaldehyde.
Garnett is a proud competitor. But he simply has too many miles on him. Some nights he looks like Keith Richards does most mornings.
Game 1 is tomorrow.
