Reader Comment of the Day: "I don't hate to admit it at all. We needed this. Well, we didn't really need it, but it sure helps give that extra little motivation to keep our eye on the prize. Are we going to let Shaq tie Kobe in rings while wearing a ... Celtics uniform? HELL NO!!!! Are we going to let the Miami Meat and LeCreep get a ring after the sickening narcissism of "The Decision?" HELL NO!!! No way. No how." -- Jon K.
