?? I mean, C'Antoni reminded us why he's one of the greatest basketball minds not necessarily as a winner, but in terms of where strategic offensive brilliance meets the business end. With Tony Parker out on the other sidein the WC bracket, he actually looks like he has a chance to make it to the Finals for the first time, ever, which is sort of mindblowing, but why on earth are he and Spoelstra winning COTY? Is it really as simple as the fact that Stevens coaches in the Eastern Conference? Not saying that isn't a highly valid argument, but I guess I fail to see what is so brilliant about jacking up 3,300 3-PTers after Gregg Poppovich & Steve Kerr already let that moneyball cat out of the bag. After all, Golden State is the most stacked team in history, probably, and Houston managed no better than 3rd in their Conference. Meanwhile, Brad Davis took this roster to #1 ahead of Lebron's Cavs in the East, and they're on a collision course with King James for the ECF. I don't expect them to win that matchup, but then, I don't think Houston will beat the Spurs even with Patty Mills bringing the ball up the court. It's a achievement of pure conquer that he took this squad to a 53-29 record; even if it is in the Leastern Conference. http://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/BOS/2017.html http://www.nba.com/celtics/roster/ Isaiah Thomas is his #1 player for God's sake. My Kings' 2014 roster that put up a 28-54 record had more talent behind Thomas: http://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/SAC/2014.html -- Demarcus vs. Horford -- Gay vs. Bradley What gives?
