Definitely can't point to officiating for that Game 6. That was just a completely dominant performance from LeBron, start to finish. He put on an instant classics.

If you're the Celtics, how do you no-show this game? HOW?

LeBron was in full FU mode. The way he gestured to the bench after drawing that foul under the basket in the 3rd period? He had Rodman attitude. Next play, he pivots and swishes a jumper, walking backward with that death stare.

That guy. That's the guy he needs to be. More of that, less of Mister Happy Guy.

That's not being no-showed.

That's the best player in the game deciding to win a game all on his own. And when that happens, there's not much anyone can do about it.

Game 7 the Celtics have to come out strong at the start. There won't be a comeback run for them if they fall behind early.

Agreed. Not that the Celtics did anything on offense, but most of their offense is predicated on defensive stops and Rondo running the transition offense. Their half-court offense is what Simmons likes to call the clogged toilet offense (and I agree). James was making everything he threw up there, so I don't know what else they could do about that. Game 7. Winning time.

That Game 7 just became so hard to watch after so many referee whistles. Honestly, I was doing a comparison with the Stanley Cup finals and I shook my head at the jarring disparity. Six penalties called in the hockey game versus 38 fouls called in this basketball game (with 24 of them belonging to the Celtics, naturally). Honestly, I switched it off after watching Wade drive into traffic for Yet Another Foul in the Lane.

Final line for LeBron James: 31 points, 12 rebounds, 0 fouls. Of course he didn't have any fouls.

Because history is written by the victors, everyone's going to remember this series for LeBron's transcendent Game 6. I have a feeling that Boston fans are going to remember it more for Rondo's 45-point Game 2 that they wound up losing because his face rake in the final seconds went without a whistle.

As great as this run for 5 years for the Celtics was, and they got a championship out of it, one thing is also going to hang on this team: The Celtics had NEVER blown a 3-2 series lead in franchise history prior to the '09 playoffs. They blew 3-2 series leads 3 out of the last 4 years. That will never be acceptable.

He had been starting in Phoenix. Their usual starting lineup was Nash, JJ, Q, Marion and Amare. Based on the local analysis here, it is a split opinion.
