View Full Version : Pacers-Celts Game 3
Pierce is Da Man. Scores 21 in the third to bring Boston back from 14-pts down at the half and gives them a 11-pt lead at the end of third.
And where's Artest, the self-proclaimed Defensive Player of the Year?

Isn't Isaiah Thomas the worst coach in the league?
I know the media is already setting up his excuse for him again ('they're so young') but come on. He's got the only legitimate starting center in the Eastern playoffs. He's got the best power forward in a conference where all the other decent power forwards are playing center anyway. He's got the best perimeter defender in the league today. He's got the deepest bench on which he is sitting two all-star veterans, one of whom is among the greatest playoff performers in the history of the league. He's even got a legitimate point guard which his current opponent doesn't. But his team is going to lose this series and twice they have had double-digit leads that they let get away from them.

Thomas is riding his playing days fame....he certainly isn't a top coach. Put Avery Johnson in charge of that team and it makes a run at the Eastern finals.

Put Avery in charge of that team and they are IN the finals.
