Celtics Morning Joe: KG "2010's loss a nightmare"

Posted by shawn cassidy on September 11, 2012 at 6:10 AM


KG spoke with Chinese media personality Yang Yi.


Nightmares sneak in my bed. Living life over in my head is a cruel game that stains the walls like a crime scene in my mind. Causing all the fear to come back alive. Bringing back memories with powers that I can't grasp. Why can't those nightmares let me go and let me free? The 2010 finals loss has been my biggest nightmare as a sports fan. For the longest time it was the Cleveland Indians losing game seven in the 1997 World Series, but losing game seven in 2010 makes me afraid to go to sleep at night.




The nightmares just won't go away. In my sleep the Celtics  still betray me with the lack of rebounding. Feelings that I wished were buried deep down. The most important thing out of all of this? Losing game seven is tough, you put so much time into being a fan. But at the end of the day it's not a real nightmare. The real nightmares are hurricanes destroying cities, or losing a loved one to cancer. KG touched on happiness during his interview. He said the 2011 team was the funnest group of guys. Which they were on the surface to us, and apparently inside the locker room.




The 2011 team wasn't a nightmare for me, but it was the most disappointing team. It didn't turn out the way it should have. Injuries destroyed the team, and the trade tore out the heart. A season that felt like 2008, became a season that ended to fast. Since winning in 2008, this team has suffered bad luck. Winning a title this year will allow us all to move on. That nightmare will be a distant memory with banner 18 in the air.

Good post man. I stii can't shake it myself. We just shouldn't have lost to LA. It breaks my damn heart.

Another game 6 loss for the Celtics. Another series they should have won. Up 3-2 in Boston means nothing. But good post

The Big Three team should have won more titles. I think the two guys who are left from the Big Three, and Rondo, understand that. I think this team will show a lot more of what they call killer instinct, in 2012-2013.

My biggest concern at this point is that Doc and Danny may be too infatuated with the idea that Centers don't matter in the NBA anymore. Grit has to start at the Center position. That is what elevated Perkins far beyond his actual talent level. He has a lot of grit. Will Doc and Danny encourage the grit that we fans see in Sullinger? I think they need to bring Dave Cowens in to work one on one with Sullinger, teaching him the ways of Hardball.

Rebounding isn't just important in itself. It's also an indication of how much grit a team has around the basket, where it matters the most.

Exactly my thoughts. Having a center when there's not a lot of them out there is a privilege. We can't go around playing small ball all the time. It'll come back to bite us in the behind.

If we play the Lakers in the finals we need bigs to perform. We can't afford to lose one either this season.

Oh yes, that's exactly what I've been thinking about GeeZee - that we could actually have a real advantage over other teams in Sullinger. The mentality he seems to have was always rare, but it seems almost nonexistent today. How are other teams going to feel about it when we have a guy taking it to them around the basket all day long while he is in there? It might frustrate some teams.

I think the group we have is good though. We have KG who can play it all kinds of ways. We have Sullinger who looks like a true banger. We have Wilcox who is athletic and energetic. We have Bass who can draw your bigs outside, Collins who brings size and knowhow, and Melo who supposedly is a learner. We can throw a lot of looks at people.
