Go C’s! May 13, 2010

This past winter I decided to pretend basketball did not exist. The Timberwolves were terrible, the Hawkeyes were terrible, and I just couldn’t force myself to watch my teams lose. But now that it’s playoff time I get to root for teams that can actually win more than 15 games. So who do I choose to root for?

Why, the Celtics of course. Yes, it’s mostly because of KG, but I also like their style of play and most of the players on the team. I think Rondo has talent beyond his years (and is only getting better), and I have always liked Ray Allen and Paul Pierce.

It’s not that I don’t like LeBron James, in fact, I think he is the best player in the league no-questions-asked. And it’s not that I don’t like any of the other teams (although I hate many of the Lakers players, but maybe surprisingly I don’t hate Kobe), I just like the C’s.

If I can’t root for the Timberwolves, I’m going to root for a team that I like that can actually win. And the Celtics fulfill both those criteria. Hence, GO CELTICS!
