Meet the moon, the stars, the sun, leave reality for a moment. The Celtics have a practiced apathy these days. Enthusiasm seems lost in space. I've gone blank, and empty an overdose of apathy from the C's. Your apathy is painful, for it sticks an arrow in our hearts. The Celtics play our hearts like a harp.
Every season becomes a new snowflake, another math problem that you can't wrap your mind around. This season felt different. It was supposed to play out in a way that gave us more hope. We seemed to get everything in the off season. We re-signed KG, and we brought Terry in to replace Allen, and Lee was supposed to help aid the loss of Bradley for the early part of the season, and he was supposed to help Terry with the load of back-up duties.
Green was the x-factor, and Bass was supposed to pick up where he left off. The Celtics even signed Dooling, but he decided to hang up his sneakers. The Celtics brought in three centers in the off season. Wilcox retunred after major heart surgery, and the C's also brought in Darko, and Collins. Those bigs were supposed to give the Celtics major strength up front. Through in Sully, and the Celtics had the deepest team in the East. Sully was a major wildcard, and he's paid off nicely.
As for the trio of centers. Wilcox has been hurt for most of the season, Darko didn't make it past November because of family problems. Collins was the weaker of the three, and he's played off, and on, but not really want the Celtics need. He even started for a short while.
I think you get the picture of how this season was supposed to pan out. It's early in the season, and the Celtics have turned things around before, and hell they were close this season already, but they have fallen back once again. Now we have a coach calling for players plain tickets, and we have guys throwing teammates under the bus. It's gone south quick. Title contenders before the season started, and now a bubble team in the Eastern Conference.
It is morning and I am hurting. Standardized 8 hours of empty thought for some, but restless nights have plagued me for the past three months. As I slept the world turned to face the sun. I was fortunate enough to see it rise over the horizon while peeking from under the covers. Not yet ready to leave my fabricated nest to embrace its comfort I reach for the snooze button.This season has been one long snooze button. When is it time to wake up?
The Celtics are the giants that sleep. They seem to be waiting for the right moment. I have been down on this team. And last season I was feeling different about the slow start. This season was full of expectations, and we thought the Celtics learned that game seven on the road sucks. The talent on this team should have gotten through games like Detroit, and Cleveland, but they haven't. Maybe it's this teams destiny. They have shocked us before, and you know what I think It might just happen again.
