If you follow me on Twitter (and you definitely should), you’ll probably notice that I’m a bit of a Boston Celtics fan. They’ve not had the best start to the season. They lost the first three games and as I’m writing this, it seems like they’re about to lose a fourth. So I really have to ask, do the Celtics have what it takes to win another NBA Championship.
To be honest, I’m really not sure they do. They have some really amazing plays – some of the best you’ll see in the NBA. The problem is, they’ll do one of those plays, then have the next ten plays as average at best. They seem to always have at least one quarter where an NBL team could outscore them. And it’s really sad to see. They’ve got some really high class players – Rondo and Pierce, as much as many will disagree, are two of the best players in the NBA.
Something needs to change at the Celtics. Whatever Doc Rivers is doing now, it’s not working. I don’t blame Doc – I believe he’s not sure what to do now. I don’t believe in blaming the coach though. There are senior players in the team who should be sorting it out too. They’re not, which is not Doc Rivers’ fault.
