This is why the Heat don't need to rush Bosh back to the lineup, because the Celtics are mostly fighting their own advancing age, and fleeting championship mortality.

"I don't know how long I've been in the league, but that has to rank as the worst I've ever had," Rivers said. "I would have loved to earn it."
When the league office gets done with Rivers on Wednesday, he'll have earned a fine for telling the truth about one of commissioner David Stern's referees.
