Act like you’ve been there. That is what the saying says but the last time the Celtics were “there” Paul Pierce was 10 years old and rooting for the Lakers so maybe he doesn’t exactly understand the meaning of the saying, It is obvious he has no idea what Celtics Pride was about.
The Celtics beat the Pistons last Saturday (the first real team with a chance to get to the finals they have beaten all year) and the so called “stars” and “class” of the current Celtics teams were acting like idiots. Pierce was being his usual self pumping his shirt like he knows the true meaning of what wearing that shirt means. Garnett was doing the same thing. Maybe its me but maybe you should play for a team for more then 3 months before you start acting like wearing that shirt matters more then the average NBA shirt. WOW that sounded pretty self entitled. (Yankee 26 titles so everyone else sucks like entitled )My bad you’re right. Wearing a Celtics shirt is no different then wearing a Bobcats shirt especially when you are disgracing that shirt with your bad attitude PAUL PIERCE.
James Posey was mocking the Detroit fans to their faces and making fun of the “De-troit basketball” chant that they do and I can’t really blame him for that. By nature Detroit fans are some of the meanest most annoying fans you will ever find in a any sport and my guess if they weren’t being quiet during that game either. (Celtics “fans” apparently are just as bad)
Lets just say that the rest of the NBA is not very happy with the way the Celtics are trash talking these days. In a recent chat by an NBA Insider this is what was said
milkncookie: what do you think lamar odom was thinking there..? maybe he tripped? that looked ridiculous, he basically tackled him. (*Lamar Odom tried to take out Ray Allen a few nights ago in a game)
David Thorpe: I don’t know. But I do know players hate the way the C’s talk trash. Expect more of this kind of stuff.
Notice that it doesn’t complain about the Celtics Trash talking but it does talk about the WAY they trash talk. These teams might remember come playoff time. Upsets happen.
Trash talking is part of todays NBA and every team does it including the Pistons but the difference is if you are going to act like your team is better then the rest then act like you’ve been there. Unless you haven’t and you have NOT Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
The Pistons beat the Celtics a few weeks ago in Boston for their first and only loss at home this season and they didn’t act like idiots. Maybe because they have actually been there and no you don’t wake up a sleeping giant.
This article also proves how easy it is for Paul Pierce to be two faced. How easy it is for him to represent himself to the media one way all the while showing his true self on the court. This is something I have known about Pierce for years. Winning however clouds the judgment of some I guess.
Patriots will win first playoff game. I love when players don’t keep quiet.lol Oh and FYI to the player, Why exactly are you like most players in the NFL ignoring that the Jets did the Same thing LAST YEAR?
