All over but the crying in Boston

08:10 AM ET 05.10 | It's not impossible for the Celtics, but it sure is unlikely. Eight teams have come back from 3-1 deficits to win an NBA playoff series. Two of them wore Celtic green. ... The task is tougher now. The Celtics don't have Bill Russell and Sam Jones. They don't have Larry Legend, Chief, and Kevin McHale. They have three Hall of Famers in their mid-30s. They have Rajon Rondo playing without his left arm (hyperextended elbow). And they have absolutely no center. Rivers went with three guards in important stretches of Game 4. Shaquille O'Neal played three minutes and 31 seconds, committing two fouls and doing nothing else. It's over, people. Much as it hurts to admit, it looks like the Heat have evolved into the Monsters we feared they'd become when LeBron James elected to take his talents to South Beach.

The Heat are playing well. I honestly didn't think they had the talent or mental toughness to beat Bosdton in a 7 Game Series. It seems as though I was wrong, and I will man up and eat my crow. Dee and RGBH, my bad, I was wrong, and I apologize. With all that said, GO CAVS!!!!!

The irony is that, despite all the talk about the age of the Celts, it was the young players who got hurt in the playoffs the past two years: Perkins and Rondo. That said, the sun has set on this team.
