Panic Button for the Celtics?
I know it’s only a few weeks into the new NBA season, but how worried should Celtics fans really be right now? 4 wins in their first 11 games, and all four coming against the leagues 3 worst teams (Washington, Detroit, New Jersey). It seems they are having an extremely hard time scoring points, having not cracked 90 in their last six games. KG has definitely lost a step on, and it’s showing on the defensive side of the ball and the Celtics not being able to come up with stops when they need to. I have to admit, as much as I hate the Celtics, I still thought they would come around, but after the game against Dallas a few nights ago I completely had a change of heart. The Celtics were 4-4 and looking to get back on track after a loss to the Pacers, and the Celtics had 5 days off to get ready for the Mavericks game. Yes, five days off which in this shortened season is like a 2 week vacation. If you can’t beat a team who played the night before, at home, after you had five days off then there are some serious flaws in your team. Doc needs to evaluate his team right now and find out a solution quickly before it’s too late. This team is old and needs to get young real quick seeing as the rest of the season is filled with back to backs and even a few back to back to back games.
I think the Celtics need to look into breaking up the big three and going after a young scorer. Maybe trading Allen for a big name prospect, because they are in desperate need of some scoring. They also should have never gotten rid of Perkins. Granted he was useless on the offensive side of the ball, he was a beast on defense. So with the Celtics sitting right now at 4-8 and 10th in the Eastern Conference it would be absurd to say they don’t have a chance. The East is a joke when it comes to the bottom half, so it would be embarrassing if they can’t at least get into the playoffs. I think even with keeping the team as they are they should still straighten out and win some games, but if they don’t make any moves I don’t see them getting higher than a 6 seed and looking at an early exit in the playoffs. The game is just too fast right now for the Celtics to keep up, and the teams that can move the ball up the court quick with young players like the Traiblazers and the Sixers and the Clippers are dominating the league. So if you’re a Celtics fan which most of you reading this probably are, be a little worried but in the end your team should still make the playoffs.
Conspiracy theory?- Doc is trying to sink the team to get a good draft pick so he can pick his son Austin in the 1st round next season. Guy sucks anyways.
