Japanese: 臆病者

With the Celtics now down 3-1 to the Bucks, the ride is almost over for these heartless cowards. From being ranked 2nd best in the preseason behind the Warriors to now being the laughing stock of the NBA.

Jaylen Brown expects five championships by the time he’s 28, and it looks like thats not happening this year, or any time soon. But I don’t blame his hubris too much, even though the team has done nothing to prove they can get to the promise land, let alone win there.

Since 1959, the Boston Celtics have faced the Lakers in the NBA Finals 12 times, most recently in 2010.

It’s a rivalry that helped save the NBA in the 1980s, and was revitalized just a decade ago, as the teams faced each other in the finals twice in three seasons. With a combined 33 championships between the two franchises, the Celtics and Lakers are considered the premier teams in basketball… and now a new battle is ensuing.
