Having had a Dad who was a Basketball Coach,Player and Guru, I grew up watchin' the Celts...Russell,Cooz, Havlicheck, then Bird and Co... etc... Now we are talking a team that played the likes of Magic and Co., Bernard King and Co., Dr. J and Co., Michael J and Co...etc etc. Whole different era..sorry. Back when the last of the Mohicans played with broken eye sockets, back issues, screws in there ankles etc etc and still won, and you know why?, Because they"Loved" the game...it was like breathing is to you and I! Not that these guys don't want to win..but it is a different era altogether! Sorry you can't compare apples to oranges. I am so excited to see how well they are doing this year but the level of excitement is not the same as when Bird and Magic squared off. Money has changed the face of the game forever. If you put a Pit Bull against a Doberman the pitbull will kill the Dobie everytime. The Dobie is bigger,quicker,stronger but the Pitbull goes for the Jugguler and holds on and won't let go until the Dobie has lost. Sorry, but when I watch todays players even the celts..they make one pass and shoot or just shoot. Occasionally a passing series but not like the Bird era at all. The rebounding,passing inside and outside play and shooting was as good stat wise or better in the 80s as it is today, and they ran and hussled and fought a heck of a lot more then than they do now. It was the end of an era Celts wise....but I take my hat off to todays boys and feel they are as close to the old school of Skill,Brains and Guts as you will ever see again! Go for it guys...I believe you can do it!!! Prove to us you can be the new Big three with great supporting bench...Good Luck to you in the Playoffs.... A Celts fan 4~ever!!!
