I've always liked the Celtics (but I hold no influence with the refs, I'm afraid). KU is in my hometown, and Boston has frequently kept University of Kansas players on its roster, with Paul Pierce currently playing there. Past Jayhawks/Celtics have included Raef LaFrentz, JoJo White, Norm Cook, and Scot Pollard.
Boston has had four distinct great teams, with Bill Russell, Dave Cowens, Larry Bird and most recently Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. The 86 team had the best frontcourt in NBA history with Bill Walton and Scott Wedman backing up Parrish, McHale, and Bird. If Len Bias had lived to play for Boston, there might have been several more titles.
So, no, I'm not a Boston Celtics hater... I just don't have any pull.
