THE BOSTON CELTICS TAKE DOWN GIANNIS AND ARE HEADED BACK TO THE EASTERN CONFERENCE FINALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THEY FUCKING DID IT!!! THEY FUCKING DID IT!!!!! THEY FUCKING DID IT!!!! IT REALLY HAPPENED!!!! GRANT WILLIAMS JUST STUFFED GIANNIS INTO A LOCKER!! IT WAS LIKE THE KELLY OLYNYK GAME 7 PRAYER ONLY BETTER BECAUSE GRANT MADE NBA HISTORY. HE MADE 7 GODDAMN THREES IN THE BIGGEST GAME OF HIS LIFE. THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T PUNT ON THE SEASON. THIS IS WHY YOU PLAY FOR HOMECOURT. ROLE PLAYERS PLAY BETTER AT HOME AND THAT SIMPLE FACT JUST WON YOU THIS SERIES. THE BUCKS THOUGHT THEY COULD FUCK AROUND AND THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T FUCK AROUND WITH THE BASKETBALL GODS. THEY WILL MAKE YOU PAY EVERY SINGLE TIME. YOU RESPECT THE GAME AND THEY WILL REWARD YOU. I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS TEAM CAME BACK FROM 2-3 WHEN BASICALLY NOBODY IN NBA HISTORY EVERY DOES THAT SHIT. THIS TEAM IS DIFFERENT. THERE IS NO QUIT. THEY ARE A FUCKING WAGON I'VE BEEN TRYING TO TELL YOU FOR THE LAST 5 MONTHS. WHY DO YOU THINK I SAY THE WORD WAGON SO MUCH IN EVERY BLOG BECAUSE THIS TEAM IS A GODDAMN WAGON. FIRST IT WAS KD. NOW IT WAS GIANNIS. ALL THESE BEST PLAYERS IN THE WORLD YET ALL I SEE STANDING IS JAYSON TATUM. HIM AND JAYLEN WERE INCREDIBLE. THEY ARE NOW 3-1 TOGETHER IN GAME 7s ALL TIME HOW BOUT THAT. CAN THEY PLAY TOGETHER? SURE CAN, ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE EASTERN CONFERENCE FINALS
I LOVE THIS TEAM. THIS STILL HASN'T EVEN HIT ME AS THE GAME JUST ENDED 2.2 SECONDS AGO. I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS OUR LIFE. I CANNOT BELIEVE THEY JUST KICKED THE SHIT OUT OF THE BUCKS LIKE THAT. THE CELTICS ONLY HAD ONE LEAD ALL SERIES AND IT WAS 4-3. DID I MENTION HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS TEAM. THEY ARE DIFFERENT. THEY ARE READY. THEY DO NOT RUN FROM A SINGLE TEAM.
Seriously though, holy fuck. I don't know what I expected other than this being the most stressful 2.5 hours of my life. Then the Celts start the game 5-21 and get down by 10 early and I think we were all having flashbacks of 2018. But these are not the 2018 Celtics. These are the 2022 Celtics. They win games like this now. They take down giants of the league and come back asking for more. We love and trust no matter what and they are showing us why you do that. Many people are saying that series might have been the NBA Finals, but I won't go that far. One game at a time. The Heat are going to be tough and there's a quick turnaround before Game 1. Having said that, this team should fear no one. They have the talent. They have the coach. They have the confidence. They've been there before.
This all doesn't feel real. 25-25 through 50 games and the Celts are headed to the Final 4 playing arguably the best basketball in the entire league. Rob didn't even have to play. Tatum is so locked in and thankfully his Game 6 was not wasted. His legend is growing by the game and I cannot fucking wait to see what he does next.
Let's take another moment to shout of Grant though. He really did go Kelly Olynyk, I can't believe it. Nobody, and I mean nobody saw Grant having a bigger game than GIANNIS, yet here we are. He put the work in to fix his shot and look what happened. It saved the season. They needed that shot to start falling and that's why you take those looks with confidence. We might never see Grant play like this again, and who cares. He just needed to do it in Game 7 and I can't believe I'm typing this but he was legit. thebest player on the court at times. Unreal.
All I know is this. The Celtics are still alive. We'll regroup in the morning of course. Enjoy yourself today. What a win. What a team.
LET'S FUCKING GO
