"When I was in college, we used to play pick up games in a little league," Korver said Friday night. "And there was always like the old-guy team. They weren't really that athletic or anything, but they killed everybody because they played so smart and they backdoor cut and they set screens and they knocked down shots. The Celtics are like them, but good players. It's a compliment. They play really good team basketball. So it's going to be a challenge."
Well that's nice. I'm sure that the Celtics are going to be flattered by being compared to those old guys that show up at the court in sweatpants, elbow pads, and smelling of Icy Hot.
In truth, he was trying to be complimentary and went on to praise them. If anything, it is an apt analogy. I used to hate playing against those guys. Shoot, I'm well on my way to becoming one of those guys.
