Song of the post: THIS
Lately I’ve been all about baseball, who hasn’t though? WE WON THE WORLD SERIES!!!!
We are 0-2 off to a great start this year. No sarcastic tones in that sentence, I mean it, we need all the losses we can get. In case you missed the months of June-August, the Celtics lost their coach, and made a blockbuster trade with the desperate Brooklyn Nets. We shipped Jason Terry, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce out of the hub for multiple first round picks and grimy players to muck up time and add up losses.
Two games in it is working perfectly. I’m not even kidding, we have two mid-first round talent players in Olynyk and Sullinger. Bot can be huge talents and will hopefully be put on the back burner for the next 2 years to “develop.” Then there’s Avery Bradley and Jeff Green, somewhat talented players that you can build a future franchise around. Then a few players like Humphries, Wallace and Brooks that can be moved and just take up space while we sink into lottery abyss.
Oh, and the point guard, Rajon Rondo. Take your time getting back, I’m talking Derrick Rose time to get back. Look, you’re 26 and we suck now, why not wait until these players and future players can develop? If he stays out for basically 2 years the Celtics can certainly get a lottery pick with the current group of players. Unless of course Rajon comes back only to leave town a few days later…
Trade him or sit him in the same back room as Olynyk and Sullinger; there’s no need for anyone to be a hero here. We won’t be overtaking Lebron and his cronies any time soon; plus by the time the Brooklyn
Celtics Nets are finished (2 years max) their first rounders will be yours.
SO I beg you to tank this year!
I swear to Bird, McHale and Havlichick if I get back in the summer and we don’t have Andrew Wiggins or a lottery pick…
