Booya! I love being right, and I called this one long before there was talk of the Celtics sneaking into the playoffs. What their record doesn't show is (A) how exciting this team is to watch, and (B) how well they've played against top opponents, either by pulling off the upset or falling just shy of a W after outplaying them for most of the game, like dropping 38 points in the first quarter against the Warriors and leading by 26 (56-30) with 6:47 still left to play in the second quarter. With the stockpile of draft picks they've amassed over the next several years, playoff experience for these young cats will prove more valuable then adding a high first rounder to the pile. Go #Celtics!

He's absolutely right. These scrappy #Celtics fought their way to the No. 7 seed in the East and unfortunately drew a matchup with the Cavs, the team most likely to win the Conference. However long it lasts, I'm glad to see these guys get some playoff experience en route to becoming an elite team.
It's been nine years this month since I start contributing to Maximum PC. A lot has changed during that time, both professionally and personally, some of which I cover in an editorial reflecting on the wild ride it's been.

I recently found a bit of closure on a 15-year relationship (I'm of course talking about playing all the way through Duke Nukem Forever). When not sitting behind my PC, you'll likely find me on the basketball court dropping dimes and raining threes, or spectating any Boston sports team.
