Celtic Pride

Jackie MacMullen of The Boston Globe has a great article on last night's huge Celtic win over the Pistons. With each passing week there seem to be fewer and fewer reasons to doubt this Celtics team, but from a national perspective one need only flip over to ESPN to find those doubters, whether in the form of the perpetually shouting Stephen A. Smith, who apparently thinks that volume equals veracity, or the Jay Mariottis of this world. The east is not as strong as the west in the NBA, that is obvious, but I am willing to assert that the top of the East is as good or better than the top of the west. In two weeks the C's will take a trip through Texas that will reveal more about what sort of team they really can be, but it seems to me that they have proven that they are the best team in the league right now, a claim that means little in the long run, but that has to mean something.
