The final score: Celtics 85, 76ers 75. An exciting series that was still undecided entering the 4th quarter of Game 7.
Cronise’s Celtics over Dorsey’s Sixers, 4 games to 3. LRDP’s civil war is over.
At least until football season.
There wasn’t any formal Showdown going on for this big game–rather a series of intermittent texts and a lot of exchange over Twitter. Here’s some of the more notable sends (and some visuals).
@bixbycro211: Being it on. #goceltics #LRDP @michael_d_ vs @bixbycro211 gets personal
LRDP-DORSEY**: Broussard: “Sixers playing with house money”. i love that. feeling oddly confident
**Dorsey often tweets on LRDP’s account, marking his thoughts with a MD.
LRDP-CRONISE**: not very superstitious about watching sports…that said, I’ve busted out my trusty hat. “Ol’ Celtic Faithful”[picture attached]
DORSEY (20:02): this is for real the end of an era. all pressure on you. wheels gonna fall off.
CRONISE: We’re still playing in June. You’re done while its still May.
DORSE: coheed and cambria (from the shitty years) entrance music? come on boston
CRO: I woulda gone with Dropkick
>>Or theme from Boondocks saints
>>Or whatever Greg Stiemsma’s favorite song is
@TopherHimself: @bixbycro211 @justinmosner @LastRdDraftPick that video got ME fired up, and I’m at home #LRDP
LRDP-DORSE: The Sixers are in this game because they got rid of that shitty logo. #lrdp
LRDP-DORSE: Lou draws a foul and hits the shot. Ill bet he’s one of the best in the league at that. Wonder if they keep that stat.
LRDP-CRO: 5:17 left in 2Q… Rondo is 5/4/4… Could this be a Game 7 trip dub?
CRO (21:00): I think we are about to see a Rondo trip dub
LRDP-DORSE: Iggy dunks mean good things to come for the Sixers.
LRDP-CRO: Iggy, you’re horrible at tossing the oop.
>>also you’re bad at shooting FTs. (13 for 31) #yourenostar
LRDP-DORSE: What the hell is he doing at the line? Act like our best player. We need every point.
CRO (21:45): Go the eff away, Dorse/Sixers!!
DORSE: here we come. jrue gonna start making some shots
CRO: Ray has got to start hitting… He’s due (I hope)
@bixbycro211: “oh lord I hate it when they start hitting 3’s” -my mom referring to the Sixers keeping it close
LRDP-CRO: FINALLY! Welcome to the game, Ray!
>>It might be time to put in Moore and Johnson and employ the Hack-A-Iggy… #LRDP @GrantlandLive
DORSE (22:08): can we make two consecutive foul shots for christ sake? f word
CRO: Which will be greater: number of shots Ray Allen makes total… Or number of FTs made by Philly
DORSE: peace out Pierce. youre finished.
DORSE: if this goes down the way i think it will. you should thank the Sixers. gave you a gift tonight. goddamn it.
@bixbycro211: This is going to be the longest 57 seconds of my life (so far)
LRDP-CRO: RONDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (Chris Webber style)
DORSE: ah well. enjoy getting swept by the heat and not having a viable team for the next 5 years.
CRO: Bitter grapes. We can beat the Heat.
>>You should spend the offseason searching for a star that can make FTs
@bixbycro211: See ya later, Philly. #BeatTheHeat #BeatTheHeat GO #Celtics !!!
@michael_d_: i hate sports.
