I loved this. I realize the Cavs haven't played to their potential and we are all analyzing that situation, but Boston should get some of the credit.

HOLY SHEET. No foul with 1:00+ left on the clock and within 10?! Mo Williams walking it up the court with no sense of urgency?! !+)

Hats off to the Celtics. Seriously.

As Alvin Gentry has been saying to the Los Suns lately, the C's weren't going to be given anything -- instead they'd have to take it. And they sure took it from the Cavaliers and pretty much broke their will along the way. Amazing series by Boston!

Getting pumped for Magic-Celtics, that's for sure.

Yeah, I saw one article talking about how when James gave up in Game 5, it made it easier for his teammates to give up in Game 6. I agree that they still had a shot at the end of Game 6, but they didn't seem to play with any urgency. The last minute or two, no rushing to get a quick good shot, no fouling to stop the clock, no frantic defense to try to get a steal. They just laid over and died in a game that was their season, and maybe their franchise? Looks like Lebron's "leadership" rubbed off on his teammates, but in the wrong way.

Oh, I almost forgot - anyone hear the chants by the Boston crowd of "New York New York" when Lebron was at the line? :-D

Oh yeah I was wondering what they were chanting. I was watching it on my computer and couldn't tell what they were saying.
