It's funny to look at old games at the Garden on ESPN Classic. There usually isn't ONE black face in the crowd. Were we denied entry? There had to be a couple black Celtics fans IN Boston, right? lol
I spent my childhood and teenage years despising the Cs with my Pops and every other black male in my life. Call it male bonding.
Sure there were. New Edition and probably Sean Wright[college friend] lol
Yeah, Sean Wright opened my eyes a little bit. He was the first black person I know that actually liked the Celtics. Now I look back at how silly it all was. ;-) The Celts ain't all that bad. I can even watch the old games with a little admiration now.
I'm all grown up.
Well bully for you, cause I still hate 'em. There is respect, no doubt. I but still hate 'em. Quiet as kept, it's probably more because of Danny Ainge than Bird and McHale. I wanted Worthy to just pound him into anti-matter:)
I watched one of those 80s postseason matchups when they played the Bucks. Those Celtics were cold. But still whenever they show one of the Lakers-Celtics matchups, all admiration and respect goes out the door. Even knowing the final outcome of the game or series, I still watch the game as if it's current, rooting for Showtime to embarrass Beantown
He[Ainge] was a whiny little wimp, wasn't he? a little pest.
We all know bird was great, but people forget how nasty mchale was. That boy was nasty. And i remember he was the 6th man!
Cornbread maxwell wasnt too shabby at the 4 just not as good as McHale.
And the media has started the comparison.
