When was the last time the Celts won a championship when they were just 6th best?

Celts always won a championship when they're at the top, usually more than 60 wins.

Wrong Celtics won a title with Russell and I thunk they finished 4th.  You are simply not a historical expert on these things.  Many on this board dwarf you experience as  Celtics fan.

Exactly my point!

You have to go back to the Russell days.

Did the Russell days have a 3-point shot?

Or was Russell allowed to play zone?

Don't accuse me of not being an expert on Celtic history because you really don't know me.

Again, the point is most of the time the Celts win a championship is when they're atop the standings.
Rarely do the Celts win a championship when they're just 6th or 4th.

17 championships and you can only remember one time the Celts winning when they were not at the top of the standings?

That means the odds of the Celts winning a championship is very low when they're not the top team or one of the top teams.

You do not even know what you said.  You said the Celtics always won a championship when they were at the too.  That is not true.  And that did not win 60 games that year.

Stop making statements about things you know nothing about.  

Like I said, Celts last won a championship not winning 60 games was back in the Russell days?

It's 2018, that was 5 decades ago when there was no 3-point shot and you were not allowed to play zone defense.
Times have changed.
How many NBA teams in the 60s?

Look at the Celts of the 2000s, 80s, and 70s.
Every time the Celts won they were the top team in the east.

Again, the point is rarely do the Celts win when they're not the top team.

Celts won championships in the 70s with 50+ wins, but they were #1 in the east.

If we base it on Celtic history then clearly the conclusion is Celts rarely win a championship when they're not the #1 team in the east.

One championship season out of 17 does not make it the standard.

Fierce

I have to say this thread is exhibit A of how off the rails you have gone.  It like you are obsessed with driving home a point, even when people are telling you they dont agree with your point.  

Do you think Dboss is going to argue with you for 11 posts and then the 12th time you say something, he is going to turn around and say - oh yeah, NOW I get your point?  LOL.

In the end, your point (or any point) may be right in the end.  Your point may be wrong in the end.  We dont know yet.

The bigger point however is, this back and forth - responding to EVERY post with the same broken record, and doing so multiple times - destroys any semblance of credibility you had in your original point.  And is frankly, killing this board.

one of the joys of sport is the fact that it is unscripted, thus, we may be surprised . we are 8 games in . if the season was a game, we'd be around the 6 minute mark. those who assumed we would dominate the east were premature. those counting us out now because we haven't rounded up every top player in the game are playing fantasy basketball in their heads. I intend to watch the games and see what happens.

Long term Celtics fans appreciate every year and every team.

How about admiting that you were wrong. I really would not expect you to know the history. I think you said in another thread you have been a fan for 30 years.

You are trying to sell your views but you are not doing a very good job of it.

I think we should consider locking this thread, forcing us to move on.  We started off chasing each other's tails, devolved into chasing our own tails and now are just running in circles hoping to find a tail.  My 2c
