The Celtics this year started out like a house
But I believe they've only been playing .500 since Christmas. Quite simply they've been terrible - losing big leads often, losing home games, and losing to some of the worst in league history (e.g. NJ Nets).
While I shorted them, kind of, twice this year. I'm still responsible for my widely inaccurate pre-season prediction:
So there's my NBA prediction for the year - a healthy Celtics in four games over whomever.
Now there was a time when they suffered a spate of injuries....but even when they got 100% healthy, surprisingly the team didn't improve an iota. The Siamese twin realities of *age* and *slowness* hit the team all at once.
Lebron or whoever is going to trounce their 'old coot' butts in the playoffs.
And the next bleak decade for the Celts is as great excuse as any to rid myself of this *childish* passion once and for all.
