Quite the emotional outburst by Garnett in the post-game interview with Michelle Tafoya.

That is one intense man. He also seems to be very liberal with his use of the word "motherfucker"...

I am watching the post-game on ESPN and all I can think is "I fucking hate Stuart Scott".

i can't say again how much respect i've earned for paul pierce over this run.. and really garnett and allen, too, even though i've always liked both of them.

pierce was a "volume shooter," like so many others in the league today. even when the celtics were making runs at the finals with pierce and walker, the two would take just dreadful shots.

there are so many guys who the same old "yea they shoot a lot but give them someone good to play with and they'll change" line is used on, but very few whom it actually stands true. iverson? kobe? they're gonna shoot no matter who's on their team... lebron? yet to be seen. but paul pierce did change. he became a team player, he bought in. he took good shots, he didn't force up "his." he's gone from being one of my most disliked players in the league to being one of my most liked players in under a year... just in a few weeks even.

garnett had a similar rap... "he can't win the big one." he's about the only superstar i've ever seen get criticized for being too unselfish. i've always loved him... wished the knicks weren't run by isiah when he was available... wish they'd give me my money back on my KG timberwolves jersey that i bought like 6 years ago... but am really happy that he'll never have to have that same old ewing, malone, barkley "can never win the big one" label ever again.

kobe's still a guy who won three championships with shaq. phil's still a guy who won 9 championships with jordan and shaq... and somewhere up there red is having a good laugh at how pitiful big cheif triangle's "team" looked tonight.

great end to a great nba season... now for the draft

It's been a long time since I've seen a team this outwardly and unabashedly emotional, so full of pure and total joy, and so over-the-top excited about winning an NBA championship. The Shaq-Kobe Lakers were never this emotional/excited/happy. The Duncan Spurs were never this emotional/excited/happy. The 2006 Heat weren't. The 2004 Pistons weren't. This is really the first time this decade that I have seen a team really get emotional about a championship. One of the most emotional all-around reactions to a championship I've ever seen, really.

And I couldn't be happier that it's a team with KG, Pierce, and Allen on it.

Allen will now be remembered forever as one of the great shooters the game has ever seen, who was doing his thing in a time when good shooting was becoming a thing of the past for the league.

KG putting up 26/14 in a closeout game to win a championship narrows the gap between him and Duncan, imo.

Pierce has been one of the most underappreciated players in the league for years and now he's finally getting his due.

Danny Ainge is looking pretty smart right now for refusing to include Rondo in the KG trade. Rajon had a very impressive playoff run as the starting pg, all things considered.

Perkins looks like he could be a Mutumbo-type guy for this generation.

I even like the role players on this team.

PJ Brown is solid.

I can't help but like Sam I Am, even if he is a total black hole on offense.

Powe has shown he's a real player.

House has hit the big shots when they count.

Posey has been tremendous on both ends of the court.

I'm a Bulls fan, first and foremost, but I haven't liked a team this much in a long time...probably since the 99 Spurs(who I still maintain were better than any of the subsequent Spurs title winners).

When the Lakers won the first of their three-peat in 2000, they were VERY emotional/excited/happy. I remember it well.



Haha that's a really small picture but, yeah, they were happy.

so we know Kobe's rep/legacy is going to take a hit from this... but what about Phil Jackson's?

I think Phil got outcoach in a massive way this series. I never really liked Doc Rivers but he had the celts playing great ball. It occured to me yesterday watching the game that Kobe never moves without the ball. He just stands there with his hands in the air calling for it.

What a dominating performance that was last night. When they interviewed Pierce at halftime, you just got the sense that this was one lead that would hold up. He had that look in his eye.

I loved that KG was absolutely out of his mind at the end of the game. When he says he may not sleep for months, I tend to believe him. My favorite line was "I'm certified! I'M CERTIFIED!"

Headache and Namkur really summed up how I feel this morning. I've never liked the Celtics, have always been a Lakers, Bulls fan.

And I didn't really like Paul Pierce up till this year.

But this team...this Celtics team...was pure magic. It was hard work, great defense, emotions, guys stepping up, guys coming hard off the bench, guys improving, you name it, it was what Basketball is all about. The Lakers were simply not as good, not as deep, and I don't like the personalities that much either.

I really loved how emotional KG was and Pierce, I mean what fan of the game couldn't like these guys?

I think we're witnessing the beginning of a dynasty team. Seriously, I can see this team repeating.

I loved when he kept saying "I made it Ma, I made it!" ...honestly being a parent of a kid who has hoop dreams it was hard not to get choked up when he said that...

Rivers seemed to make all the right moves, he had injuries to deal with, and got meaningful contributions from just about every player off the bench at one point in the series.

i agree and disagree at the same time... if you gave each player on each team a video game rating and added them all up, there really wouldn't be much difference between the two teams. but for the celtics the whole was bigger than the sum of it's parts. the same can certainly not be said for the lakers.

synergy, it is a wonderful thing.
