Knicks guard Quentin Richardson made some incendiary comments toward the Celtics after the game:

"I think a few of those guys know they canít just say anything to us," said Richardson. "Iím just real curious to see what those guys will be saying if we werenít in a basketball league, and didnít have referees. I mean it wouldnít be the same story. I mean they are the World Champions and rah-rah-rah, but the tough part I donít factor. I come from a neighborhood where you can say what you want to say, but 'til you do something, it donít mean nothing. Some of those guys are happy to get a ring, but you ainít been in the league long enough to talk to people like that. I donít have a lot of respect for that. Like I said, Iíd be curious to hear what they have to say in a different setting, Iíd be very curious to see that.Ē

what do u guys think when u hear a player say something like this? I know it doesnt belong in pro basketball, thats for sure.

It had to be someone young. He said "you aint been in the league long enough to talk like that" Maybe it was Rondo:confused:

I think the real question here is what happened to free speech? Unless you're seriously offending somebody you shouldn't get fined at all. This problem is much bigger in the NFL though, they get fines for everything.

It was great for Boston to win a title last year, but some of their players (Eddie House) like to run their mouth, just play the game and exhibit some class. Everyone knows you won the title, act like it. I think Q. Rich was just speaking from experience, nothing wrong with what he said.

Please...Where the champs....trash talking is apart of basketball...I seen it in street ball, jr high, high school, college and pros. Q is just mad they lost. You have to be in the leage 10 yrs to start talkin trash???? Please....basketball is a fun game and trash talkin to me is a part of sports. Sorry Mr. Richardson that your on the Knicks and can do nothing about it. Have fun in the lottery this year watching our trash talkers try an defend OUR crown :D

how is their nothing wrong with what he said? He basically said if we were in the streets, I would jump you with my team. He is that street image the NBA doesnt need. If this isn't encouraging violence, then I don't know what is.

It must have been Scalabrine yelling something after he drained that 3 at the end. He is a well known street thug who is also known for breaking down opponents mentally and physically.

Celtics are the most arrogant team in the league. Look at them, let's get two HUGE super all stars to take a pay cut so we can win a championship. Pretty smart idea but it does show the lack of intelligence the front office and coaching staff has about drafting players. Also the lack of confidence. They didn't build this team the right way. So you can see why they are hated. Also most fans and players on the team act like they are God now.... since the Celtics won the championship Paul Pierce now thinks he is the best player in the world HAHHAHAHA LOL not even top 5.

exactly. did Q forget last year's visit to the Garden? as in the 40+ point beat down.
I think its only a matter of time before he takes a swing at Pierce. they had problems last year too so I know hes gonna try somethin against Paul, so i would keep Big Baby out there late in the game just in case bc I dont want Paul responding and getting suspened.

lack of drafting skill? lets go over the celtics draft the last few years... al jefferson... hm i believe that guy is getting like 22 and 10 a game now adays right? ryan gomes a solid pf off the bench... delonte west tearing it up in cleveland now... leon powe rajon rondo kendrick perkins tony allen all played huge roles in getting us a championship... not to mention pierce was drafted by the celtics

Yeah buddy.

Blame it on the refs.

while his language is far less than superior, to dismiss the notion that refs influence Celtics games is a little premature. Just look at the Celts/Raps game from the other night, where KG was taunting Calderon, any player would have gotten suspended for that with a technical. but not KG. Add in the fact that Garnett only got a one game suspension for his smack on Bogut? What did Carmelo get in his slapping incident against the Knicks?

the Celtics are awful, my stomach turns every time I watch them play because they just don't shut up and they somehow manage to get the refs to reverse calls.

as for Q-Rich, I don't mind his comments one bit. Perkins is probably the guy who was chirping without merit. He was chirping Jermaine O'Neal because JO was torching him and somehow managed to get a double technical out of it.

I agree with you that KG should have gotten a technical for taunting Calderon he was acting ridiculous. And that call that the refs reversed in the raps game was bs they had it right the first time I cant believe they reversed it.

But did you really just compare what KG did with Bogut to what Melo did in the Denver New York fight? Come on give me a break...

As far as Q-rich is concerned I don't have a problem with what he said, people shouldn't being saying crap on the court that they wouldn't say off the court. Your probably right about Perk too, Perk is just and idiot, have you ever listened to him talk? Whenever I hear him talk I feel like I'm listening to an 8 year old...his high school education really shows..

Im so tired of this kind of bull. You cant tell when someone was a fan of a team from their join date on PSD or how many times they post in a forum. Ive been a fan of the Celtics since '96 but I didn't find PSD till all of the AI rumors were circulating a couple of years ago and didn't join the forums till last year...So your telling me I'm a bandwagon fan because I didn't join PSD till last year?

This isn't meant to be aimed at just you there a lot of people around here that use that same logic and its annoying.

thats the new nba for u....flopping +championships..look at every team u just mentioned, all have floppers, chauncey billups(which u shud remember from the time he pulled that head fake move early last season to hit 2 freethrows)..ginobili parker...paul pierce, leon powe, ray allen, rondo,...all three teams u just listed all consist of floppers so whats ur point...i personally hate the nba nowadays bc its teams who flop that ruin what the nba was, and makes the game a freethrow shooting contest...do u remember when mutombo used to get called for technicals for waving his finger, THE NBA SED AS LONG AS IT IS IN THE DIRECTION OF THE CROWD, NO PROBLEM...so kg was pointing to the crowd? or was the call reversal legit? u tell me man...all i know is the league is built for flopping, as the past 3 teams who won champions for the past 5 yrs have shown..they punish ppl for being to strong, because of frail floppers who dont beling in the paint like the rondo's, devin harris', tony parker, ginobili's,..thats y i dont get why paul pierce flops, he has a the boddy of a wrestler, is he really nit confident enuf to go in with his body without crying..vince carter has tranformed his game from dunking, to pure looking for ways to draw foul on people, do u respect these things that make up the nba? i dont and i know ur lying if u tell me u do

now u sound smart. i agree flopping is awful, but Pierce is not a flopper. all the others mentioned are, but Paul gets hit hard in the paint. most of the time his headband flys off and theres no foul. i agree tho i hate how billupts just tries to draw fouls, but thats Pro Ball. Pierce, VC, Kobe, Lebron, Wade...they all try to draw fouls, i just hate billupts for it bc he is unbelievable at it.

every team flops now. every team tries to draw fouls. its nothin new. do i like it? no way. but i believe trash talking should be allowed no matter what. its part of basketball no matter where u play. someone is trying to get in your head. raps fans should be pissed at calderon for crying to the ref. a grown man crying to the ref bc KG is clapping and pointing at him. KG got in his head. thats all he wanted and he did it.

so how do u explain that reverse call? and lebron doesnt flop, one thing i repsect about him..his work ethic and he doesnt flop is what i respect, he goes up in the lane, totally focused on finishing, his jumpshot needs to improve, his midrange and every other aspect of shoooting including his form..just look at any pic of paul pierce, he is always like yelling and face is contorted and body in all angles just to get the foul call, he one jumpshot and 8 freethrows inthe end of the fourth...and we werent intentionally fouling, he just gets the caul becuz he's a f.a.g. admit it, there is no reason he gets the calls he does if he's that big, the same reason if a sg went over the top of howard to get a rebound, i wouldnt criticize teh sg, i would tell dwight its his fault, its paul pierces agenda to get to the frethrow line..trash talking should be allowed for both sides not just one, and since these guys are professionals, if the ref just lets them talk, the game would be soo much more interesteing..i dont respect someone who talks and then hides behind the referees, njot only the celtics, the spurs, pistons,..im a natural born hater of boston,, but wut i will comliment is that u stole tom thibedaeu from us which was better than getting the big 3 in my mind..other than that, the celtics are garbage, with a big name behind them

Richardson stirs the pot

Knicks guard Quentin Richardson made some incendiary comments toward the Celtics after the game:

"I think a few of those guys know they can’t just say anything to us," said Richardson. "I’m just real curious to see what those guys will be saying if we weren’t in a basketball league, and didn’t have referees. I mean it wouldn’t be the same story. I mean they are the World Champions and rah-rah-rah, but the tough part I don’t factor. I come from a neighborhood where you can say what you want to say, but 'til you do something, it don’t mean nothing. Some of those guys are happy to get a ring, but you ain’t been in the league long enough to talk to people like that. I don’t have a lot of respect for that. Like I said, I’d be curious to hear what they have to say in a different setting, I’d be very curious to see that.”

what do u guys think when u hear a player say something like this? I know it doesnt belong in pro basketball, thats for sure.

What's he trying to imply that he shot someone or killed someone? Please these NBA wanna-be gangsters are the ones that seriously need to shut their mouths. If your in the NBA that means you had to practice all day long every day to get that good. I find it hard to believe that these guys were going to school 8 hours a day. practicing another 6 hours a day and, they still have time to go out and gang bang. Please shut up!

so how do u explain that reverse call? and lebron doesnt flop, one thing i repsect about him..his work ethic and he doesnt flop is what i respect, he goes up in the lane, totally focused on finishing, his jumpshot needs to improve, his midrange and every other aspect of shoooting including his form..just look at any pic of paul pierce, he is always like yelling and face is contorted and body in all angles just to get the foul call, he one jumpshot and 8 freethrows inthe end of the fourth...and we werent intentionally fouling, he just gets the caul becuz he's a f.a.g. admit it, there is no reason he gets the calls he does if he's that big, the same reason if a sg went over the top of howard to get a rebound, i wouldnt criticize teh sg, i would tell dwight its his fault, its paul pierces agenda to get to the frethrow line..trash talking should be allowed for both sides not just one, and since these guys are professionals, if the ref just lets them talk, the game would be soo much more interesteing..i dont respect someone who talks and then hides behind the referees, njot only the celtics, the spurs, pistons,..im a natural born hater of boston,, but wut i will comliment is that u stole tom thibedaeu from us which was better than getting the big 3 in my mind..other than that, the celtics are garbage, with a big name behind them

enough said.

f you had watched the game, you would have known that the officiating was horribly one-sided. Twice calls were reverse at least 5 seconds after the call that took away charges drawn for Toronto. There were two phantom illegal screen calls that obviously resulted in turnovers for Toronto that helped change the tide. I wasn't aware you could grab an offensive player for the entire duration of an offensive possession by the jersey, but Garnett made a habit out of it. yo if u dont wanna explain this to me its fine, i jsut wish i was in on the cut that maybe the refs get... i have yet to hear you respond to facts

NBA refs suck. tell me something i dont know, next your gonna tell me they gamble on games. trust me on this, THERE IS NO REASON FOR THE REFS TO EVER FAVOR THE CELTICS.

they are the betting favorite in every game, i dont think it makes too much sense for them to go with Boston.

in case u didnt notice, people hate the Celtics. they hate the tradition. they hate the 17 championships. they hate how they won so much. unless you are a Celtic or a Celtics fan, u dont like them. same goes with the lakers.

Last time the Raptors played the Celtics in Boston the refs were so bad that people were saying to themselves "**** the NBA" because so many calls/nocalls were obviously favoring Boston. The terrible refereeing along with people like Garnet taking advantage of the situation by doing whatever he wants on the court are what make people dislike the Celtics.

A lot of people in the east were happy for KG, Pierce and Allen last year when they won but after the stuff that's been going down this season in favor of Boston, a lot of those same people are not happy. You'll see an example of this when the Celtics come to Toronto on the 23rd.

at least ur honest..see where im coming from...btw fyi there is no way in hell the knicks ever get home court advantage, becuase the refereeing headquarters are based in NY and they attend every game of the knicks to make sure the reffing isnt biased...ppl used to say the knicks get everything, actualy the opposite, they get nothing so that the refs can show the headmasters at teh game that they dont favor anyone...knicks get no calls at home or on the road, thats what makes it tough for us to play anywhere and get away with anything..we go on the road, no home court advantage, i get that...but even at home, the refs are trying to prove there is no home court advantage, otherwise they wouldve given richardson that offensive foul against the mavericks...and they wouldnt have called that stupid three point play by howard for falling back pretending like he got hit, but still made the shot..see how hard it is, to be a knicks fan? im telling you, i know the game more than any other person becuz i watch every knick game and see how things that pop up get ignored

they arent favoring the celts to ****ing go with betting odds. no one is saying that. we've heard about preferential treatment for superstars but for a whole team? especially one who are the biggest loudmouths? we're mad that boston gets bailed out of games because of it, and moreso than ever. you're acting like them being the betting favorite is actually important because obviously EVERY SINGLE REF BETS SO YEAH THEY WOULDNT EVER FAV. THE CELTS. Dumb argument.

in a way, im glad the nba isnt on nbc anymore, otherwise they would ruinthe heritage which resembles the nba wen it really mattered..I miss seeing my knicks play the pacers(fight) bulls(fights) heat(fights) celtics(fight) and pretty much every team had a bad boy personality...if jordan came back, he's average 60, with all the **** he went thru, this is a piece of cake

Dont worry the Lakers will be there and now with baby bynum up in the mix, and ariza too idk what the celts are gonna do about our giants but i know what the lakes are gonna do to their bench man cant wait i hope the celts will even make it

ALL U IDIOTS SHUT up...qrich is 110% right..the celtics talk allota **** and the refs back them up...its unbeleivable how the refs were calling everything for the celtics, leon powe's flop on david lee, better get penalized by the nba....the refs gave every call to paul pierce..qrich is stating the obvious, these guy have nothing without the referees...just becasue they have 3 all stars doesnt mean the get more calls at the end of gammes..I LOVE QRICH's attitude..its something we havent seen since the 90's and if u loved 90's basketball, then u love a little trash talk, especially when wat he is saying is true..why is it that the celtics can yell and scream if they ever get a foul called on them but when d'anotni shows emotion in the same way he gets a T? doc rivers was gong more insane when wilson chandler had that ANd 1, adn the ref just pretended he wasnt cursing at him..watch the game on MSG and ull c what i mean, MSG gets better angles than all othe cameras....the celtics throw jabs and then run behind the referreee...not championship like..more like p.u.s.s.y.s......if u respect what the celtics got away with last night, then u shud respect CARMELO throwing a punch and then running away like a *****...and if u respect carmelo, then please dont ever turn on ur tv to watch a game again

Sounds like a bias Knicks fan to me. There is no place for Q-Rich's comments in basketball. Basically what you are saying is if you talk trash on the court you should back it up off the court. And then you are also saying that there should be NO SEPARATION between what happens on and off the court. OK. So when a player gets fired up on the court because of a play that happened he should then carry that off the court and fight? Get real with yourself bro. You aren't a basketball fan if you honestly believe what you are typing in this forum.

wow d wade most of flopped every play for dallas to lose =p

truth is every team that won the championship deserved to win it

sure i dislike the celtics but they deserved to win it

true ginobili and parker are know floppers but, flopping alone does not win championships
they simply out played the other team.

*back to the subject*
i do think celtics players are getting pretty cocky but, what do you expect
allen,pierce,and garnett havent exactly been on winning teams during their career. I expect them to mellow out as the season progresses.

Its actually a good thing that players arent fighting anymore,its not smart for them and us. We loose the chance to watch them in action and they loose money due to suspentions.

Call them punks for not fighting, but that punk made a couple grand for choosing not to participate in a 10 second fight

Celtics are the most arrogant team in the league. Look at them, let's get two HUGE super all stars to take a pay cut so we can win a championship. Pretty smart idea but it does show the lack of intelligence the front office and coaching staff has about drafting players. Also the lack of confidence. They didn't build this team the right way. So you can see why they are hated. Also most fans and players on the team act like they are God now.... since the Celtics won the championship Paul Pierce now thinks he is the best player in the world HAHHAHAHA LOL not even top 5.

Not sure which young player talked smack to him, but what the hell has Q done to institute respect? Please. Now, does Pierce need to shut up? Yes. But all those kids, who he is referring to have not being in the league long enough, already went thru the playoff grind and won it. I never liked him, from the days of Miles, Q, and Odom on the Clips, doing that stupid hand gesture when they made a play. Doug Christie was another, always pointing to the ceiling when he did anything, because his wife holds his nuts in her purse

I don't think he was talking about off the court stuff, I think he was talking about the inflated egos and lack of respect that some of the Celtics were showing because they won the championship. Basically, he's just saying shut up and let your play speak for you. What's wrong with that?
