Enough Money Spent?

The Boston Celtics had the best record in the NBA at 66-16. WOW! Kevin Garnett was an MVP candidate. WOW! The Boston Celtics are in their 2nd game 7 of the playoffs. WOW!

Boston destroyed the the 37-45 Hawks in their last game 7. Everyone expected an easy road to the finals for the Celtics where they would meet Kobe and the Lakers. Well Kobe is 4 wins away and KG needs to win 1 at the most.

The Celtics brought in a new roster to start the year and got some more as the year went on. Some names that the Celtics picked up include James Posey, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Glen "Big Baby" Davis, Eddie House, and Sam Cassell. Boston also found their point guard for a couple of years, Rajon Rondo. Rondo averaged 10 points and 5 assist and a lot of intensity.

Boston now takes on a horrible Cavs team. The Cavs don't have one player that would start on any of the remaining playoff teams except for Lebron James and maybe Ilgauskas. James has been sensational this series. The Celtics went up 2-0 and then continued to lose on the road allowing Cleveland to force a game 7 which will be on ABC at 3:30 ET.

Boston I would guess will win tomorrow but for all the money they spent on rebuilding a terrible team into a wonderful dynasty makes me not that impressed. They should be destroying Cleveland everyday. It is truly embarrassing.

If I'm Doc Rivers I'm telling KG to be very intense and Rondo and Allen to feed him the ball so he could back in the giant Ilgauskas. I would also want Pierce to be clutch at the perimeter and score at least 20 so they could meet Detroit after winning 103-92.
