Sixers wanted no part of C’s

Interesting story in the Philadelphia Daily News by my old friend Marcus Hayes, in which Andre Miller and Thaddeus Young basically said they didn’t want to play the Celtics  in the first round.
Here’s the quote from Miller:
“Boston is a team that people have in the conference finals. It’s probably easier to go through Orlando than to try and match up with Boston, with Boston coming in with a lot of energy and trying to get through the first round as fast as they can.”
“I agree with ‘Dre. Orlando’s a great team, but we definitely want to play them. Boston is fresh off a championship. That’s the worst thing you can do is go play a team that just won a championship. They’re going to want to get back and be hungry.”
It’s surprising to see such candor, especially from a team that will be a decided underdog against the Magic, but if there’s a lesson to be had there it’s that the rest of the NBA still has great respect for the Celtics.
