Chicago Bulls vs. Boston Celtics: Where Amazing Happens

CHICAGO - APRIL 30: Paul Pierce #34 of the Boston Celtics drives past John Salmons #15 of the Chicago Bulls in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at the United Center on April 30, 2009 in Chicago, Illinois. The Bulls defeated the Celtics 128-127 in triple-overtime.

After watching game six of the Bulls vs. Celtics series, I wanted to write a post on how magnificent the series has been. I have been sitting in front of my laptop for the past hour trying to come up with something to write.


The series has been that magical. There is not one specific topic to write about as there are too many highlights that need attention.

I could discuss the fact that there has been seven OTs in six games so far in the series. I could discuss the fact that Gordon, Pierce, Allen, Noah, Salmons, Miller (and probably others) have hit clutch shots or made clutch plays.

I could discuss Rondo averaging a triple-double in the series or Allen dropping 51, or how about John Salmons, who earlier in the year was on the NBA’s worst team, the Sacramento Kings, and last night he dropped 35 to  help force a game seven.

Finally, I could talk about Rondo’s tenacity and almost brawl when he threw Hinrich into the press table, a game after punching Brad Miller in the face on an end of the game foul.

There is just too much! The series has been grand and one for the ages, and I can not recall a series being as good as this one in a very long time–no matter first round or the Finals.

Earlier, I wrote that I felt the NBA playoffs are better than the NCAA’s March Madness. I am sure some people got a laugh and disagreed (Not Truehoop), I am just glad the Bulls and Celtics proved me right.

One question remains and you can never get it with March Madness. It is probably the best questions in sports: Who do you like in Game Seven?
