If you read the rest of the thread, there's a bunch of NBA stuff that some people ignored, some people agreed with, and some didn't agree with (including a bunch of stuff about THIS YEAR'S PLAYOFFS and GIVING CELTICS CREDIT). This thread has drifted from 07-08 Celtics banner waving, through western/eastern conference, Pistons-Celts talk, through Lakers-Celtics history, to NBA playoffs/finals analysis and general NBA talk. On this board, it seems to be where NBA fans state opinions and talk about the NBA, reference historically great rivalries in/out of the NBA (like the Yankees/Dodgers), and even the thread drift itself has been discussed.
Do you think the great Celtics' teams from the '50's/60's would beat this year's Celtics team in a 7 game series? Any Celtics fans want to break that down? Dude?
