Pick your poison. That’s what Doug Collins said about facing either the Heat or the Celtics in the opening round of the 2011 NBA playoffs. Turns out, the Sixers will have to search for an antidote in South Beach as their date with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh is now set in stone. The series should kick off Sunday afternoon in Miami. We’ll have another action packed Philly sports weekend in store.
Personally, I thought they would have had a better shot stopping the elder Celtics who Doug Collins’ squad could find a way to beat using their athleticism. Instead, they’ll have to deal with the the task of preventing D-Wade from getting to the basket. Good luck with that, Jodie Meeks.
That said, I wouldn’t count this Doug Collins team out against anybody. That’s why they play ‘em.
