While Cleveland sits and waits for their next opponent after sweeping the Pacers in the first round, the 1-seed Celtics are struggling to finish off the 8-seed Bulls.
While Colin believes the Cavs have the potential to play at another level the deeper they go in the Playoffs, he can’t say the same for Boston. This, right now, is as good as it’s going to get.
The Celtics will probably advance to the second round, which is as attributable to Rajon Rondo’s broken thumb as it is to Boston’s play. If not for Rondo’s injury, the Celtics probably get bounced.
The Celtics have nice players, but nice players don’t win championships. Superstars do.
They can’t flip the switch. There is no switch to flip.
They are not a V-8. I’m not sure they’re a V-6. They feel to me like a really nice four cylinder. They’re a Honda Civic. Maybe a Nissan Sentra.”
Listen to Colin explain why there’s no “there” there with Boston:
