Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012
The only reason the Celtics lost is because the Celtics starters didn't play in the 4th quarter. Even if it was the second-stringers.
Hell, even if the starters/2nd-string played the last 2 minutes the C's would have won. The Euro team had their starters playing against a lineup of Jamar Smith, Dionte Christmas, Kris Joseph, Jeff Green & Fab Melo. Smith & Christmas are both scrubs, Melo is awful and Joseph is a non-factor. They had to run the offense through Jeff Green. I repeat they had to run the offense through JEFF GREEN.
This team has a lot of new pieces, the first game together, some players are rusty, etc. I wouldn't even worry about this game. It's called the preseason for a reason, it doesn't matter. How many people care that the Magic have only lost one preseason game in like the last 3 seasons? Nobody cares. Why? Because it is the preseason.
