It's harder to find a Finals MVP than a winner now. I thought Dallas could win a game without Porzingis.

Finals mvp , If Dallas wins it will be Doncic, Boston wins give it to Brown . Dallas might get the next game, Celtics will hoist the trophy at home .

Zero chance Dallas (aka Doncic) wins the Finals MVP when they're getting swept or gentlemen swept.

Call me crazy but I still reckon Dallas can win this… There’s just always been something off about Tatum and Brown to me. It’s like they are really good players but not elite, sometimes they just disappear. These are guys that lost to Golden State in 2022 who were not exactly a great team then but they had champion players. If Dallas can steal this next game, watch out.

You're crazy. At a certain point Celtics didn't care and would rather win this series on Sunday in Boston. But hey, we'll see. Just because no NBA team has come back from a 0-3 deficit in the post season, doesn't mean it's impossible.

I don't think they are the team to do it, but it would be cool to see.
I agree. I still remember when the Red Sox came from 3-0 against the Yankees in the ALDS and won the series. The 1941-42 Toronto Maple Leafs also did it in the NHL Stanley Cup Finals.

This is all hypothetical dreaming masturbation but it is now 3-1…

Cavs came back to beat the Warriors from 3-1 in 2016. Do you think this Celtics team is better than that Warriors team?

Do you think Luka (a traffic cone on defense) is as good as prime LeBron and that the Celtics defensive stalwart will be kicked out for a crucial home game?

Luka not better than 2016 Bron but Tatum/Brown/Holiday are no Curry/Klay/Draymond.

We’ll see what happens but to me the main problem with this Celtics team is they a fairly talented but they lack that narcissistic arsehole that is handy in a dog fight. It’s like they are all just nice guys getting by on skill avoiding mind games. Last game they started getting chippy at Tatum and he just walked away lol. Imagine the trash talk if they drop that next game…

No, Cavs got pretty lucky that year. That was still Warriors in their prime.

So, you're saying they need a Draymond/Butler/Beverley type guy to get them fired up?

Not even that extreme. But they are all too nice. Porzingas has a bit of animal in him but he’s not on the floor for now.

Geet it together, Jayson.

Amusing to see Kyrie vaguely hinting at Boston being a racist city that free agents shouldn't go to. Like yeah, no shit dummy. So is Dallas and the class acts that own your team now.

Looks like Klay might be going to the east coast to Orlando … warriors should have hit that reset button on draymond and klay couple years ago they would be competitive while curry still have gas in the tank . Bob Myers’s hands are tied that why he resign,The pelicans was really interested in draymond they could have gotten a haul of young players and picks . Dammit .

The good guys won. It is even more satisfying to beat that loser flat earther for the title because Boston lives rent free in his head.
