I still like our chances next season if we can get some good play out of Green (like 15ppg and giving Pierce more rest), a very good sophomore season out of Sully, an actual MVP like season for Rondo and hopefully KG can still be one of the best defenders in the league while on the court.
For everyone? Or just the C's? It's not over for anyone just yet. What was the Celts ceiling this season with Rondo and Sullinger? The 8/7 seed? Still not unatainable. Or Ainge shits the bed and trades at the deadline to tank and attain mid lottery draft picks.
At your age following the team you follow, I'm assuming it's rare to want to want to see your team lose. Maybe that's the best option though. Head up, you don't don't always win.
Apparently Ainge met with Oden yesterday, C's are one of a few teams looking at him for next season. Provided he's on a minimum salary (which you'd assume he will be) it's a no-risk proposition, he needs to be somewhere with no requirement for him to be a star so he can just get back on the court (i.e. Portland spent a #1 pick on him, so there was always that pressure)
