Want a pessimistic voice from an impartial observer?
The Celtics are donezo. Toast. Buried. (Sekou Smith, NBA.com)
The fact is, these Celtics are exactly who we think they are.
Same as the Knicks (who secured their ninth straight losing season with Wednesday’s loss in San Antonio), Warriors, Wizards, Timberwolves and Nets.
Obviously, the Cs don’t have anything in common with those teams from a won-loss standpoint. And they remain a significant speed bump for some team with designs on a trip to the Eastern Conference finals.
But like the Knicks, Warriors, Wizards, Timberwolves and Nets, they are a finished products as far as we’re concerned. We know how their seasons will end.
For all of you believing that the KG and crew will knock the dust off in a few weeks and mount some cosmic run at a second title in three years … have fun with fantasy basketball.
The C’s, nothing but a significant speed bump for some team with a greater destiny. Ouch. And did you see the group of team’s Smith lumped them with?
Just to cheer you up a little after Smith’s depressing opinion, here’s another guy who found a team that was who he thought it was.
