I don’t think anything or anyone is going to stand in the way of the Celtics’ march to the 2008 NBA Championship. Still, it warms this Boston-haters’ heart to know that the thoroughly mediocre Wizards seem to have their number.
That said, I find that my distaste for the Hub is actually on the decline. It was very frustrating to me to constantly be hearing Kevin Garnett blamed for the Timberwolves’ problems (he didn’t have enough “leadership” it seems) when it was eminently clear that he was one of the top players in the game and just saddled with terrible teammates. This year, I think he’s gotten his vindication and that’s all to the good, even if it does bring cheer to the undeserving people of Massachusetts.
