Another reason to dislike Brian Wilson

You have no idea how much I hate those Taco Bell commercials featuring Giants closer Brian Wilson. As I mentioned last July, {linked here} how can you eat at Taco Bell?

Forget about Taco Bell, let's talk about his other commercial. 2K Sports love Brian Wilson. They featured him for the Baseball video game MLB 2K11.

2K Sports just released NBA 2K12 and for some odd reason, they are also featuring Wilson for the Basketball game. Wilson picks the greatest basketball team of all time.

He picks the 1986 Boston Celtics!!! Are you seriously? I'll take the showtime Lakers from the 80's or Michael Jordan's Bulls of the 90's over the '86 Celtics.

Please understand that the only real argument on this question is between the '86 Celtics and the '96 Bulls. The Showtime Lakers were certainly great but that's not specifying which Lakers team. In any one given year, that '86 Celtics team (with 5 hall of famers - Bird/McHale/Parish/Johnson/Walton) was absurd. They lost once at home all year. Yes the Lakers beat them in 85 and 87 but it wasn't close to the same team (85 had no Walton and 87 McHale was hurt). If you're trying to answer a question, understand the question. It's not "what era of team was the best ever. It is "what is the best single season team ever"...and the Lakers wouldn't win the era question. The 60's Celtics are the answer to that question every day.

But I love the blog so don't think too harshly of me.
