Boston Celtics Have an Opportunity to Build for Next Year, and the Future is Bright

Despite the upset win in Cleveland last night, the Boston Celtics can still begin the process of looking ahead to next season. After that game two DESTRUCTION at the hands of the Cavaliers, at home, which social media had a ton of fun with, you know that their elimination is inevitable.

Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors Just Sending MENACING Messages to Each Other

CLEVELAND-CAValiersS-LOGO-nba draft lottery

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors are in an arms race.

That’s the probably the best metaphor for what’s going on in the NBA playoffs right now. The Warriors and Cavs are doing the basketball equivalent of what the United States and Soviet Union did from the 1950s-1980s; showing off in order to instill fear into the opponent.

“These two teams have been watching each other all season… [Cleveland] sent [Golden State] a message tonight: ‘Hey, we’re coming for you,” said Charles Barkley last night as the Cavaliers UTTERLY ANNIHILATED the Boston Celtics, handing them the worst loss by a #1 seed in NBA postseason history.

2017 NBA Playoffs: Still Nothing Worth Watching Until the Finals Begin

atlanta-hawks-charles-barkley-nba-playoffs-chicago-bulls

If you haven’t checked in to the 2017 NBA Playoffs yet, don’t worry about it, as you haven’t really missed anything. Also, there’no rush on checking in, as you won’t need to until the NBA Finals begin June 1st. Maybe, if you want a warm-up, a preview show of sorts, you can half-heartedly consume the conference finals, and you still have a few days, almost a week until that gets going.

While these points are very debatable, the first two rounds being a pointless waste of time is something almost everybody can agree on.

Funny Tweets Mocking the Boston Celtics DESTRUCTION by the Cleveland Cavaliers

celtics-nba-draft-lottery

We told you there was absolutely no point in watching any of the NBA postseason before the Finals begin. However, you already knew that. Everybody knows that, and the Boston Celtics showed us exactly why that is tonight.

Perhaps it’s more appropriate to say that the Cleveland Cavaliers conveyed the pointlessness of everything that precedes the NBA Finals. The NBA on TNT team was absolutely laughing their heads off at halftime, when the score was 72-31, and discussing just how lifeless and lacking in pride the Boston Celtics appeared.

Michelle Beadle Jokes About Being a San Antonio Spurs Fan During Conference Finals

michelle-beadle

Michelle Beadle might be one of the few things worth watching in the Western Conference Finals. Top NBA pundits, even those who work for the league’s broadcast partners and therefore pretty much work for the league, have been telling us all along that there’s no purpose in watching the NBA Playoffs until the Finals. 

That’s true, as we’ve all known, even before the NBA regular season ended, who the two finalists were going to be.

2017 NBA Draft Lottery Conspiracy Theories for EVERY SINGLE TEAM

Every single NBA Draft Lottery, the conspiracy theorists will come out in full force.

In reality though, the lottery is just an endeavor of mixed integrity. The genuine, empirical truth likely lies somewhere between the two polarities of “hey, man it’s all manipulated by the league, the NBA Draft lottery Illuminati know!” and “just luck/serendipity! (or what economists call “pure competition”)

It’s rather sad though, how much the world has changed in such a short time since we did the first and only previous edition of this article in 2015.
