Let’s be clear… this Celtics team is not your NBA version of the Boston Red Sox. Yes, that would be great, but unlike the Red Sox, the talent and player depth just doesn’t seem to be there for this Celtics squad. No one would like to be wrong more than me and every other Celtics fans but it just doesn’t seem to be in the cards.
With that said, where will they be? The worst position in sports is to be a middle of the road NBA team. Meaning your not bad enough to be lets say a top 5 pick and you’re just barely in the lottery. It’s awful. And we all know the luck this franchise has had locking up top picks during the lottery.
The main question every Boston fan is going to be asking themselves this year is do I really want them to win this game? Considering this is said to be one of the deepest drafts since the LeBron James class a tank job may be exactly what’s needed. However as mentioned already those don’t always work out for the best with the Celtics and picks.
The preseason hasn’t been able to say much so far. With start point guard Rajon Rondo and his return in question it’s hard to predict much especially betting and NBA spreads. Not only that, but you know if the Celtics are losing at the start of the season and losing a lot they are going to take their sweet time bringing him back. As fans that have been through this all before all we can really do is hope it’s not a long drawn out process and that Celtics basketball will find it’s way back to the top sooner rather than later.
