BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS - JUNE 16: Jayson Tatum #0 and Marcus Smart #36 of the Boston Celtics speak to the media after losing to the Golden State Warriors 103-90 in Game Six of the 2022 NBA Finals at TD Garden on June 16, 2022 in Boston, Massachusetts. (Photo by Adam Glanzman/Getty Images)

On Thursday’s edition of Zolak & Bertrand, the crew took a deep dive into the 2022 Channel Media & Market Research New England Sports Survey. The biggest question and response that bothered Beetle was surrounding the worst thing that happened in Boston sports over the last year, and somehow the Celtics losing the NBA Finals finished in the top spot.

  • Beetle is befuddled

    Beetle: 28% of people said the worst thing that happened was the Celtics losing in the NBA Finals and not making it to a Game 7. If you were to say, what is the best thing that happened in the New England sports scene in the last year? I would have put that number 1 and in fact, they did ask that question and it also was number 1on the other side. It received 25% of the vote of what was the best thing that has happened in the last calendar year. Which is correct. It is. The Celtics making it to the NBA finals, you will find no other success from another team that rivals that. They were in the finals. They were competing for a championship in their sport. How in the world do you call that the worst thing?

    Hardy: I don’t. I don’t. I think it’s spoiled sports fans who want another championship. They haven’t had a championship here in, oh, what is four years now?

    Christian Arcand: Four long years.

    Hardy: Four long years. They haven’t been to a championship in 3, you know? The Stanley Cup final was all the way back in 2019. So, come on already. What’s the holdup? That’s what it is. Spoiled rotten.
