Loves to hate

February 28, 2009

I've been a Celtics hater since the '60s when I was a fan of the Philadelphia Warriors. Here's my dream scenario involving the Celts:

I see them in a deep hole. I see the cackling Bill Russell tossed in followed by that hefty sack of arrogance Tom Heinsohn to tamp them down tight. Then dirt should be shoveled over them. I don't want to see them in another Finals. I don't want to see them win another game -- ever. I hope one of Mikki Moore's snakes swallows the Big Three whole and tops that off with Marbury for dessert. I root for the Lakers and any team playing the Celtics.

That's how to hate the Celtics.
