What Is Going On Here?

The headline says it all. What in the world is going on with the Celtics? Many people have had there own opinion over the past few weeks. The consensus answer is that they are doing what they did last year and that is coasting into the playoffs, they will turn it up once game 1 of the Eastern Conference playoffs start and everything will be fine. My response to those people are this is not last year. The Big 3 does not look right if you haven’t noticed it doesn’t feel like it did last year. We did not have many questions headed into the playoffs like we do this year. Rondo did not hit a wall last year with injuries and fatigue, we did not have such a big roster turnover like we did this year. With ten games to go the Celtics this year have not played with a full team and that has to be a huge concern. I am extremely worried for the first time since the new big 3 have been put together. We talk about the Knicks new players needing time to play together to be a title contender but what about us? I no it all starts with the Big 4 now but what if those guys need a lift who do we turn to who can be that spark? Do we look to Shaq, who hasn’t played the second half of the season? What about Jeff Green, who lets face it that is a lot of pressure to put on a guy who was brought here to fill a roll and not be the quote on quote the man to help us get back to the finals. Do we look to Big Baby again who has made some big shots in his time with the Celtics but he is a guy who you cant trust game to game. James Posey, Eddie House, and PJ Brown fit that bill perfectly back in 2008 but as Rick Patino said “They are Not Walking threw that Door”.

    The C’s will be fine. April 7th when we play the Bulls will be the most important game of the season. That game will be a huge in measuring where Boston is as a whole team. Everyone hopefully should be back by then. I personally believe Boston will close these final 9 games strong and steam roll into the playoffs.

    Every team has ups and downs. There’s a few games left in the regular season, so, there’s some time left to get together.
    The most important thing is PLAYOFFS.

    You are a celtics fan/blogger and spelled it Patino? A little fact checking or editing can go a long way to bring some legitimacy to your posts.

    Danny f***ed up the team chemistry big time. A full third of the roster wasn’t here 20 games ago. If Doc can pull this together and win a ring, he’s coach of the year.
