H-E-L-L-O People! Did You Know The Boston Celtics Can Loose Every Road Game And Still Win The NBA Championship? by Donald Chisholm, II

After going 66-16 in the regular season (35-6 at home) the Boston Celtics have yet to win a playoff game on the road. As a result, some sportswriters and commentators believe the Detroit Pistons are the favorite to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals. Give me a break. The entire reason for a team to win the regular season is to get “home-court advantage” during the playoffs. That means the opposing team has to beat the home team -- at home at least once-- in order to win the series. NOT the other way around. Despite not winning a game on the road in the NBA playoffs, the Boston Celtics are well on their way to the NBA Finals. After beating the Detroit Pistons 88-79 in game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals the Celtics are now only three wins away from the playing for the NBA Championship (yes, it was a home win). Therefore, if the Boston Celtics keep winning in the same exact fashion – winning all their remaining home games – they will still win the NBA Championship. I think the Boston Celtics’ fans like those odds (at home the Celtics were 35-6 in the regular season and are currently 9-0 in the playoffs).

O.K., yes, some of us expected a display of dominance, greatness or supremacy from the eventual NBA Champion. And yes, some of us expected much more after watching the Celtics dominate in the regular season. But so what! The Celtics have seven more home games and only need seven more victories to win the NBA Championship. You do the math.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: The Chicago Bulls (1), Miami Heat (2) and the Minnesota Timberwolves (3) are the big winners in the NBA Draft lottery. Is Derrick Rose coming back to his hometown of Chicago as the number one pick in the NBA Lottery? Is Michael Beasley the next Rasheed Wallace?

PREDICTIONS: In the NFL, Parcells does it again: he runs his star player or himself out of town immediately upon arrival. In the NBA, the media, the public, along with the majority of the east and west coast, are salivating for an epic battle between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers.
