HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Can you say rivalry?
The Boston Celtics do not like the Miami Heat. Not one bit.
The Celtics, who were a quarter away from winning the NBA Title, are miffed the Heat was picked to win the Eastern Conference, even though The Holy Trinity had yet to play a game together.
After manhandling the Heat for the second time in two weeks, Pierce, the Celtics’ closer and leading scorer, felt obligated to talk a little viral trash. His tweet is spoofing James’ (in)famous line during The Decision.
Fair enough. Pierce has good reason to be confident.
Kevin Garnett has turned back the clock; Rajon Rondo is the NBA’s top all-around table-setter; Ray Allen’s stroke is still silky; the bench will be productive, especially when Kendrick Perkins and Delonte West get healthy.
Garnett and Rondo, in particular, should please Pierce and worry the Heat
The Big Ticket is one of many physical Boston posts who will give Miami’s smaller frontline trouble. Also, Rondo will have his way with the underwhelming Carlos Arroyo.
A rivalry is brewing between the Celtics and Heat. Right now, it’s one way, though.
