Again, he is a Celtic...

A Finals MVP award named after a former Celtic, ugh... That felt worse than throwing up and then eating it...

Oh great arguments.

He should be judged by what team he played for, which is a random coincidence in regards to who drafts you, instead of the 11 rings he won, many of which he defeated the Lakers.

He's not just a Celtic. He's one of the greatest players to ever lace it up. He was a pioneer as the first dominant African American player, playing in a time where all sorts of horrible insults were thrown at him.

Cut it out with your gang mentality. He's a HOFer first and foremost, and the epitome of what a selfless team player should play like.

1st of all, he deserves it... Doesn't mean I have to like it or root for him... Let me clarify something...

I cannot, under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, root for a Celtic, ever... Anyone who wears a Green uniform, is DEAD to me, unless your name is Rick Fox or Brian Shaw...

You're taking this game WAY too seriously.

No. It is what it is... If people cannot accept that, then it's none of my concern...

It was back then man, chill. During his time he beat his opponents the RIGHT way with dignity and hard work.

He's far from being a dirty player like the modern and Larry Bird era Celtics.

That's just straight out discrimination. You can't hate a respectable player just because of his team. Bill Russell is one of the few Celtic players that have gained my respect.

“My favorite All-Star memory was seeing Mariah Carey in the Michael Jordan jersey dress,” James said Saturday. “Was that Atlanta? Yeah, that’s my favorite memory of All-Star weekend. Whew!”


I thought this was kind of funny, hahah.
