Even Without KG and Ray Allen, the Defending Champs Show and Prove

Posted in Blogroll on April 15th, 2009 by Michael Tillery

Interviewed a bunch of Celtics last night: From Doc Rivers and Rajon Rondo to Bill Walker and Gabe Pruitt. Good for me, but the Sixers loss las night was just unacceptable. The Celtics were without KG and Ray Allen and still beat the Sixers. Dre Iguodala, Thad Young, Andre Miller did all they can do, but the Sixers are just thin in spots where they need some umph. The Celtics carry on and don’t care if everyone is picking the Cavaliers and the Lakers. Didn’t they win last year? I know KG is a little banged up, but trust he will play and play well.
