WEEI has a couple of great quotes about how far the Celtics are from turning the corner and becoming a great team again.
The Celtics repeatedly have mentioned “turning a corner” to get back on a winning track. But with 17 games left in the regular season, how far away is that corner?
“I don’t know, maybe 17 blocks,” Rajon Rondo guesstimated on Friday. “It should be the same zip code.”
Ray Allen said the Celtics aren’t that far away. But that might only be because he isn’t too familiar with the concept of blocks.
“I live on an island. I don’t have blocks or anything in the country,“ Ray Allen said. “Any time you have to turn a corner, the corner is a block away. It’s just a block away because once you do something well, you feel like you’ve turned a corner. So it’s never that far away. Just like when you’re good, you’re just teeter-tottering on being bad, vice versa.”
