I second that emotion Doc. I do disagree with you that this team had nothing in the tank. Rondo I think disagreed with you. I do as well. The Celtics just lost focus. Maybe you are right Doc, but I felt with KG only playing 13 minutes in the first half, after facing foul trouble, with 3 quick fouls. I thought the Celtics got a major break leading by 7,and KG sat with foul trouble. I figured he come back fresh for the final 24 minutes. Despite this team winning just one title. I think this team could have been one of the all-time great teams in league history. This team has seen it's unfair amount of injuries, and that was the dagger in the heart for this generations Big three. We could have seen a three peat, or even four peat?
We will always be left with what if's. In are personal lives,and with our beloved C's. What if KG played in 2009? What if Perk played game seven in 2010? What if Danny didn't trade Perk? All of us will carry those thoughts with us until banner 18 is raised. Even after that happens. Their is no guarantee that those thoughts escape us. Rondo will be our biggest link of the past, as he is our future,and the now. I wanted it so bad, so bad that I would have sacrificed anything that I could. This series will always come down to game six, and how the Celtics didn't show up. And you can even say game two.
This team fought until the end, but I guess, as it's very hard to say. The Heat just wanted it more.
