In no surprise, the Milwaukee Bucks have completed their series sweep of the 8 seeded Detroit Pistons. What was surprising, though, was how their fans reacted to having to play Boston next round. Taking a play from every college football team that thinks they can beat Bama, they start chanting “we want Boston”.
Look, I love the “who’s next” mentality, but this is not how a 1 seed acts. That’s an underdog attitude. It’s pathetic and embarrassing. How many times have you heard Bama chant “we want…” anyone? How many times have you heard Golden State “fans” chant this? Never, at least not seriously, because their next opponent does not matter. They have the confidence that they are going to win.
Milwaukee needs to take notes from their 1 seed counter part in the Western Conference. Golden State always has a confident indifference about their next opponent. They just know they are the better team.
I don’t want to sound like the Celtics are going to complete back to back sweeps, because they won’t. No one in the NBA, much less in Boston, can guard Giannis and he will completely take over at least two of the games in the series. But as has been pointed out several times, this is basically the same Bucks team that got beaten by the Celtics without Kyrie and Gordon last year. Yes, I know they switched coaches, but players-wise, there is no one new that could possibly scare me.
With fans that don’t believe enough in their own team, I still take my Celtics in 7.
