Celtics-Heat Postgame Fun-Fest: Crazy KG, D-Wade's Hipster-ish Fake Glasses and "Good Job, Good Effort!" Kid (w/ VIDEO)

I love NBA basketball, but I'll be the first to admit that I am oftentimes more compelled by what goes on after the games -- in the press conferences, in the locker room, on the set of TNT -- than I am in the games themselves. I'm the guy who is rooting against LeBron not because I hate him, but because the world becomes a far more boring place if he wins a title.

I like NBA basketball but I love awkward trash talk, bad outfits, shitty fashion statements and barely coherent rambling. This is who I am, unabashedly and unapologetically.

So when it comes time for me to break down what happened in a pivotal playoff game like Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Heat and the Celtics, you'll have to grant me at least one post where I can analyze the activities after the final horn as opposed to the series-changing events leading up to it.

And this is that post.
