The NBA is a joke. This is how the Celtics lost tonight.

When does football start again? How is this not reviewable? Seems like a simple fix. Ref goes and looks at the tape, realizes how badly he fucked that one up, game over. Problem solved. See? Simple.
Look, I love that the Celtics are good again. But shit like this just reminds me why I don’t miss getting this invested in the league. What’s the point? Every game comes down to the final possession or two, and the refs have the ability to basically decide who wins like they did with this. Obviously that was not a foul. Obviously. And he missed the shot. Celtics won fair and square. And then they lost because the ref said they did. OK.
Anyway, a year ago at this point I would’ve told you that this team would never win with Isaiah Thomas as their best player. He’s a really good player but you can’t win in this league without a superstar who will then attract other superstars. It’s gay, but it’s the only way to win in the NBA.
But somehow Brad Stevens has turned Thomas into a bonafide superstar overnight. He’s gone from a 22 point a game guy to a 30 point a game guy. That’s like the difference between Michael Jordan and Latrell Sprewell. Paul Pierce was never a 30 point a game guy, even when he was the only star on the team. Marcus Smart is one of the best defenders in the league. Al Horford isn’t worth the money, but he can do a lot of things. Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley (when he’s healthy) are solid, solid pieces. They’re one player away. If Durant had come here instead of being a vag and signing with the team he couldn’t beat, then we’d be the best team in the East and on a collision course for a showdown with Golden State in the finals.
Trade the five million picks you have for a superstar and we’ll be back in the NBA Finals getting boned by the refs. But at least it’ll give us something to get juiced up about.
