Herald ‘D’ should be ‘Big Ticket’ to award FL's Take: KG should definitely get the Defensive Player of the Year award. No one even comes close. The MVP award could legitimately go to any one of 4 players, but there is only one player who has dominated on the defensive end and that is KG. Pistons wrap up 2nd spot Ewing ready to find out if he’s elected to Hall of FameFL's Take: I am more interested to see if DJ finally makes it into the Hall. It is a shame that he didn't make it it while he was alive. He deserved it and still does. I hope they do the right thing now, even though it is too late for him to enjoy it. Globe Garnett is big name from a small town CelticsBlog 3 pointers 4/7 Watching both ends of the West's playoff picLOY's Place Who saw this coming?NBA.com The NBA HOF questionFL's Take: DJ won championships with not one, but 2 different teams. That says alot about the player. He was a key reason the Celtics won the '84 and '86 championships. He was a key reason Seattle won their championship as well. Larry Bird said that DJ was the best teammate he ever had. Now that is saying something. The Star Wins suddenly a tall order for RaptorsFL's Take: The reversal of fortunes in this league are amazing. For the Heat to go from Champions to doormat in 2 seasons is simply amazing. For the Sam Mitchell to go from Coach of the Year to scapegoat and for Doc Rivers to go from scapegoat to Coach of the Year candidate is also simply amazing. Queen City Hoops Bloggers pick MVP and ROY - round 10 SouthCoast Today C's pull back but not very farFL's Take: I like the thought of resting the stars for the Bobcats game since that gave them a full 5 days off. Now, I think Doc needs to play them, but keep their minutes down and then go back to a regular rotation the final week to get them into a rhythm and give them momentum going into the playoffs. Connecticut Post Have the Celtics achieved balance?Daily Herald Bulls can use any help they can get FL's Take: I hate hearing all the teams who are going to be going after Tom Thibodeau after the season. I sure hope Danny makes him an offer he can't refuse to keep him in Boston. Hoopsworld Making the case for Chris Paul as MVPBleacher Report Shaq's newest nickname: The Big Mouth Celtics complete greatest single season turnaround in NBA historyBoston Now Celtics' week ahead Green Bandwagon Meet the Celtics again: Glen DavisFanHouse Dolan thanks New York by feeding Celtics fansAustin Statesman Why I admire Kevin GarnettWEEI Danny Ainge on The Big Show The Dumb Jock Celtics are the best team to be the worst team the year beforeGive Me the Rock Bobcats are no match for the Celtics C-minus team FL's Take: It is amazing that they gave us problems every game except that last one where the stars didn't play. Shamrock Headband The incomprehensible turnaround BostonSportZ Greatest Celtics video montages everLex Nihil Novi One armed crossovers don't existWhat is a lock down defender? FL's Take: When I hear "lockdown defender" I think of DJ. He was all about defense from start to finish. I think of that famous play where Bird stole the ball and shot it underneath to DJ. If you look at the video, while everyone else was celebrating, DJ turned to play defense on the inbound pass. There was 1 second left and his first thought was defense. That is what made him one of my all time favorite Celtics. 1986 C's win 12th in a row, move to 62-13 FL's Take: This is my favorite feature on any blogs. I love seeing how that 1986 team parallels this one. Another telling of the Leon Powe story FL's Take: I love Leon and have been on the Leon Powe bandwagon since day 1. It is so exciting to see how he is picking it up and playing so well now. He is going to be a big part of the Celtics playoff run.
