Boston Celtics' Team Bus Robbed During Miami Heat Regular Season Game

After dropping the first two games of their NBA Playoffs series against the Heat, the Boston Celtics have reason to dislike Miami. But Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski adds a bit more fuel to Boston's dislike of South Beach in reporting a real violation in early April.

When the Boston Celtics climbed on the team bus in the bowels of American Airlines Arena late in the regular season, the mood had been thick with anger and disgust over finally losing to the Miami Heat. Only now, several sources said, the Celtics discovered a deeper, knifing violation: Someone had snuck onto the bus and stolen cash and belongings from the coaches' and players' bags.

"It was pretty bad," a source told Yahoo! Sports. "A lot of stuff, a lot of money."

That's both unbelievable and something that could probably only happen in Miami. (And yes, I've watched Scarface too many times.) What an insult, to have your team bus robbed when playing against your new rival. While obviously Rajon Rondo isn't thinking about his Kindle while getting beat up and down the floor by Dwyane Wade, it's pretty easy to see why a violation like that would bother Boston. It's surprising it hasn't become public, frankly -- the NBA owes its players an explanation as to how it could allow that to happen.

If nothing else, at least we now know why Dan Gilbert wouldn't let LeBron James' friends in the parking garage in Cleveland.
