Call me a Bob Ryan hater these days. But I can't take the loud noise out of his mouth. If it's not hate for Rondo. Ryan loves to take down his pants, and to do ungodly things to the Celtics. He's probably right when he says the Celtics have no chance against the Heat. I think that's 100% of the majority. Especially since they seem untouchable with an 18 game winning streak. Even if he's right. Bob Ryan rarely has anything nice to say. I also disagree with his thoughts on the depth of the Celtics after the loss to the Thunder.
"Their vulnerability was revealed today in terms of depth, OK?" Ryan said on Sports Sunday with Mike Felger. "If KG isn't hitting - and he wasn't hitting after he hit his first two and I think he missed nine of his next 10 until he got a tip-in - and if the bench doesn't produce the way it's producing lately, where are they going to go for points? They are who they are, and it's a nice little story lately, and they've played better without Rondo, but the fact is there is a limit, and the limit is they can win a playoff series."
This game showed us that the Celtics can hold anyone on defense. The offensive story wasn't about missing shots. It was about taking bad shots. I don't think we watched the same game. Tell me if I'm wrong. I feel like the Celtics can build off of this game more than feeling demoralized.
