I don’t think this Celtics team has ever appeared on the wrong end of so many highlight plays as they have over the last two games against Miami:

Boston is lunch. It’s time for those senior citizens 2 pack it up.
garnett turns, sees him and adjusts… but bron just stays with him. in slo-mo, it’s downright crazy.
lebron was up in the air for like 12 minutes!!
I enjoyed that
a highlight revenge for chris bosh(SOFT)
Should have switchted to the left hand
lebron would just hanged in the air longer
weird how they just hung in the air together for that long. i actually switched off before this happened because game was over. of course a major highlight happens right after…
In slow motion it looks like Bron was starting to drop when Garnett made his adjustment, but then all of a sudden Bron goes up and extends another inch to make that block…that’s pretty incredible.
This is KG’s official “Old moment”.
Im a KG fan and it was hard for me to see this happen….It happens to all the greats, they have that moment where they are no longer able to do what they used to and get embarrassed by it…….Here was Shaq’s official “Old moment”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5svfUckueM
That’s ridiculous. Too bad Kevin Harlan had packed it in already; that should have been a great call…
Haha, in slo-mo, it looks like Bron-Bron is waving good-bye to the Celtics title hopes.
Only young Vince couldve done that
Lebron is hanging in the air because he’s pushing off KG with his off arm! That is clearly a foul. If someone did that to LBJ, the refs would probably call a flagrant foul and the player would be banned from the NBA for life.
KG should have either pump faked, or just went straight up and tried to dunk it. Hurts to see that KG is my main man!
That is clearly a foul. FOrget Lebron KG is my main man
Beetle that was no foul gtfoh
It clearly is a foul. Blocking hand is clean, gets great lift and meets him at the top, but his off forearm is right in KG’s chest. It’s obvious. Nice lift though.
@Beetle KG was everyone’s main man 10 years ago, now he’s that guy who just got blocked.
Wow first in 08 over KG in the conference semis and now this. Did KG do a delonte on his Mom or wot????
That is a crazy foul. Who the heck can hold someone down while hitting them in the hand? Lebron that’s who. David stern should be sick.
This still wasn’t as bad as when Manu blocked his dunk! Anyone remember that?
Here’s a refresher:
Nice block, but it’s a foul. Check the off arm of LeBron. You can’t do that.
Although, they’re incredibly inconsistent with this off-hand stuff, be it the blocker or the dunker. Whatever, it had little bearing on the outcome of the game.
Another charity by the refs. the last 7 minutes of the fourth quarter was basically put the heat players on the foul line. Watch the last 7 minutes everything before that its anyones game. I can’t wait fo C’s to play at home. Nice Block by LBJ though, just like when KG put Bosh on in his ASS on game 1 which was not put on here by SLAM!
sad to say that wasn’t a foul. It was a clean block, Lerbon’s L arm did not extend what so eevr.
Bosh sucks anyway.
Haters really need to stop. I bet KG would admit that’s not a foul.
Just like Ben Wallace’s block on Shaq was a foul right? That was clean.
Some people think every good play in the nba is either a travel or foul. And then looove to point it out
@flipnoyce did you see the foul called on james jones over rondo?? How about the call where rondo jumped back into dwade in the fastbreak and wade got whistled??
^nooneelse what a troll! you just hate the fact that it is a good block!
Garnett should have shot the ball before, high arch / floater kind of thing, or switch to his left hand and lay it up. I would not bet highly on my ability to hang in the air longer than one of the top NBA athletic monsters.
