Not to mention as good as IT is, theres a personal satisfaction that Boston will be a first round out these playoffs.
Thats gotta sting. And im glad it does for them.
Houston same. Happy to see those organizations crush their fans hopes
Doesn't really matter if they're a 1st round, 2nd round, or whatever exit team as they were never winning the chip in the first place. And it's championship or bust. I'm sure they're proud to have a group of collective, hard-working guys and a competent coach in Brad Stevens to make it into the Playoffs in the first place.
Also...they have a top 5 pick (possibly #1) gift-wrapped for them on May 17th.
