Alright Celtics… a lot of us are getting together today to send you a message: playing 36 minutes a night has been fine so far… but it ain’t gonna work all season long. And since I’m just some jagoff who mashes his fists into a keyboard hoping the result will be coherent, I’m going to let Scott Souza do the talking.
In six of Boston’s first eight games, including each of the last four, the Celtics have trailed after the first quarter. Somewhat stunningly, they have gone on to win seven of their eight games overall, including those last four. While the repeated second efforts are indicative of what great teams do, the trend of falling behind almost every night and finding a way to rally can only continue for so long.
If I may just sum that up: get your asses in gear early… and maybe you can take the LAST 12 minutes of the game off… rather than the first 12. K?
On to the business we Bostonions are really good at: pissing everyone else off. Every single member of the Celtics starting 5 is on the All Star Ballot. May I humbly propose a massive effort to vote them all into the game? Would anything be more awesome? Get the word out. Stuff the ballot boxes. PerkIsABeast… get Perk into a funny YouTube campaign. This is going to take a coordinated effort people… and Lord knows I sure as hell can’t organize it. Last thing I tried to organize was my nephew’s 4th birthday party… and his mom didn’t appreciate the strippers.
While we’re at it… let’s all give Gary Payton a collective middle finger for implying that Rajon Rondo doesn’t deserve his ring.
