The Celtics are the weakest #1 playoff seed in modern NBA history
The Celtics secured the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference after the Cavs rested their starters over the last several games and essentially gave it to them.
The Cavs are still the prohibitive favorite to come out the East, and Colin is giving the Celtics no shot to beat Cleveland, even with home court advantage. Some in the largely patronizing media have convinced themselves that Boston has a shot. They don’t.
Even the Celtics owner agrees with Colin.
Boston is a good team, they have some good players, and a bright future. Make no mistake, they are going to get smoked by the Cavs, should the two teams meet in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Playoffs are all about players, and Cleveland has the players. Most importantly, the best player in the world.
“The Celtics are the #1 seed in the East, going into the playoffs. They are the are the weakest #1 seed, in my opinion, I’ve ever seen in the the NBA.”
Brian Kelly is getting attacked for criticizing DeShone Kizer. He should be praised for his honesty.
Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly was attacked in the media for saying that his former quarterback DeShone Kizer needed to stay in school for another year.
Honest answers from players and athletes are rare, and Kelly’s situation perfectly illustrates the reason why. The media doesn’t want honesty, they want opinions that align with their narrative. If comments fall outside this narrative, they get thrown into the social media outrage blender for target practice.
Most athletes and coaches know better than to speak frankly, because any comment outside of a template answer can become the next viral soundbite.
Kelly’s honesty is refreshing.
“Thank you coach, for being honest.”
