Tiger Woods Makes Fun of the Boston Celtics for Being Old

Like every other hoops fan, Tiger Woods is bummed out about the NBA lockout. But he thinks one team will benefit from a shortened season: those old guys in Boston. From WEEI (via Cyber Golf): “Asked about the league’s lockout during a media session prior to the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif., Woods couldn’t help but take a jab at the Celtics: ‘Yeah, of course I’m bummed. I think anybody who is an NBA fan is certainly bummed. I know that probably one person who is happy is probably Doc Rivers. I mean, with the age of his team, it’s nice for them to only play half a season. It’s true. It’s a fact, come on. But as far as us out west, I’m looking forward to the Lakers getting back there and we’ll see what they do. The problem is you can’t talk to anybody. You can’t see who is potentially on the block of being traded, what kind of deals can we do? Nothing can be happening. So as a fan, it’s disconcerting because I’m excited about what we could add to the team, but it’s also I understand this is business, and everyone in this business wants to make money. I know the owners were losing a bunch of money, and some of the markets were feeling the effects. They can’t draw certain players, so they’re just trying to make it fair for everybody so everybody can win.’”

    You ever have a friend that just did something incredibly stupid, and then try to make a joke about you afterwards; and all you have to do is look at him with a particular face because he’s trying to be funny JUST AFTER he did something dumb.. cause everyone knows he’s an ‘open season’? Yeah…

    Tiger could retire now and still be the best golfer ever. I couldn’t care less about his personal life.

  • purity

    @ Jake – no he couldn’t. He isn’t the best golfer ever, although his name is certainly up there with the elites. He is the best of his generation.

    It’s amazing how everybody just accepts at fact that a bunch of teams and owners are losing a ton of money.
    That is funny to me how easily the owners have made that a “fact.”

    Tiger only stated the most ‘commonly understood’ things about this lockout: it’s a business, owners want to make money, some owners loss of money, some markets don’t believe they can draw/keep talent, older teams could be advantaged by a shorter season. Nothing too contriversial here. He was asked his thoughts and he provided them. No reason to blast him for his personal issues or current failures on the course. As an average fan on the outside looking in, not too much was said or should be made out of his comments. Yes people can argue over the idea that some owners are/not lossing money, but considering that the NBPA’s own accountants haven’t been able to cleanly refute this in all cases, makes it pure speculation that the owners must be lying or hiding the money pretty well. (I personally believe they all make money because they have a team, not necessairly on the team – but that’s neither here nor there without proof).

    So now he’s a Laker’s fan? I thought he was down with the Magic. F*ck it, we got him now. Dwight Howard’s up next.

  • Heals

    I read this yesterday and couldn’t help but laugh at the hypocricy. Tiger joking about players looking like they’re too old. Enjoy your strong finish at the Fry’s Open smart a$$…

    can’t believe someone said “go lakers” and then said “frisco stand up”.
    True “frisco” only stands up for the Warriors.
