Reading about Walker's knees and thinking about whether the Celtics would extend Powe this summer with his knee situation, I came to a larger quandary: Pierce's "sprained" knee. I mean, have you heard anything about this? Because I haven't. Paul had an apparently horrific knee injury in Game 1, but battled back and won MVP. By that point we had obviously figured his injury wasn't nearly as bad as it first appeared. And then...nothing. I'm assuming he's fine, although I don't see how journalists could have not asked the Celtics or Pierce about his condition.
It's just strange - yet it perfectly summates the Celtics' postseason run. The Celtics' troubles in May have been swept under the rug, but anyone who thinks the C's just had "matchup" problems with the Hawks and Cavs is delusional. Boston had one of the more shaky postseasons a Champion has ever had. Frankly I have no idea what happened in May, and am just grateful that they were able to figure it out. And Pierce's injury - so shocking and momentarily demoralizing - was the final bit of bad karma that had to be done away with before the Green could finally lay their mental problems to rest for good. Now we are at the epilogue. And I'm just wondering what's up with Paul's knee.
