Sometimes these guys really show where their loyalties lie. On Saturday morning, SI was all over the Celtics, saying that the victory at home vs the Cavs was "a statement game" for the Celtics for some odd reason. This is despite their own correct statements in the past that one game means very little.

Now fast forward to this morning, just one game later, the day after the Celtics lost to the Magic, and all of a sudden, the loss is meaningless, falling back on the old belief that it was only one game and doesn't mean anything.

I understand that every sports fan has their favorite team, and remaining unbiased is difficult, but could you possibly be less transparent in your favoritism for the Celtics? I understand that different sportswriters have different opinions, and many articles come from outside sources, but as a whole, I would think SI would make at least a slight attempt to be consistent in its reporting.

As a Cavs fan, the loss to the Celtics was dissapointing, but good teams are SUPPOSED to win at home, which is exactly what Boston did, so it was nothing earth shattering. On the other hand, despite the tone of the article, I think it is the Magic who made a statement by showing that they can play with the big boys. Missing Garnett is not an excuse. The Celtics are just as potent without him.
