Happy Sunday morning to you, Boston Celtics fans!
Well, game two of the NBA Finals is tonight, the first game since Cramp Gate. As much as I enjoy seeing the Miami Heat lose, the fact that LeBron James missed so much of the fourth quarter due to the heat – ha ha! – sucks for two reasons:
1. It unleashes the idiot conspiracy theorists on the world; and
2. It gives LeBron James extra motivation to win.
Let’s take a look at a conspiracy theorist who just happens to be a former member of the Boston Celtics: Jason Terry, who blames the AC going out on Gregg Popovich:
Oh, no question. For an event of that magnitude, to say that the AT&T Center’s air-conditioning is not working — there’s definitely something wrong with that.
You know what, Pop [Spurs coach Gregg Popovich] has done that so many times. I don’t know if it’s a conspiracy, but I’m telling you, going into San Antonio is a tough place to play…And I can remember very well one time where it was cold showers, there were about a thousand flies in the locker room. This year, there was a snake in the locker room. So, they’re going to pull out all the stops to get into your head. When you go to San Antonio, expect something like that. And Miami fell victim to it.
Do I even have to explain that this is the most idiotic thing on the planet to argue – that Pop deliberately had the AC shut off, in the hopes that it MIGHT affect LeBron James – AND NO ONE PLAYING FOR THE SPURS? What do you think about that, Pop?
Meanwhile, let’s take a look at the players who are actually relevant right about now – what can we expect from tonight’s game two?
Now: let’s turn our focus on the Celtics. If you’re still chomping at the bit to read more about the Kevin Love-to-Boston rumors that have absolutely no basis in reality, head here, and keep getting your hopes up for no reason! [Bleacher Report]
