Celtics Showing Off Depth of Organization While Lakers, Magic Struggle With Internal Disarray (Podcast)The Celtics may not have seized control of their playoff series heading into Game 6 against Philadelphia, but they do have one thing going for them: a strong sense of who they are.

That was evident in the way that Kevin Garnett crowed about Philly’s fans after an important Game 5 win and how the unsung heroes of Brandon Bass and Greg Stiemsma stepped up to lead the C’s to a victory.

Meanwhile, other teams around the league are struggling to find themselves and know where they are headed. LeBron James and the Miami Heat continue to be dogged by the notion that James is not a clutch player. Kobe Bryant and the Lakers have many decisions to make about their future after being eliminated by the Oklahoma City Thunder. Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic continue their soap-opera disaster of a season with the recent news of coach Stan Van Gundy‘s firing.

Meanwhile, the Celtics remain the model of resiliency, banding together for their playoff run.

NESN.com’s Celtics beat writer Ben Watanabe stopped by the podcast to chat with NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette and discuss the Celtics-Sixers series, KG’s controversial comments, the state of the Lakers and Magic and much more.
