Celtics Win!!!

I am not a Celtics fan.

Back in the day, when I was growing up, you were either a Russell fan or a Wilt fan. I was a Wilt fan.

Then in the 'eighties, you were either a Bird fan or a Magic fan. I was a Magic fan. Besides, outside of his wonderfully arrogant artistry on the court, every time I see that white "33" on a green tank top, I think of the white guy in "Do the Right Thing" saying "I was born in Brooklyn!" (I was, too, by the way.)

But that embrace between Kevin Garnett and the aforementioned Bill Russell (who won his first championship 51 years ago) -- well, that was good stuff!!!

I do, however, continue to not be a Celtics fan...
