Boston Celtics had an amazing regular season with 66-16 record, the best record in this franchise history. Lead by Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen Boston has a big chance of going all the way but my blog is not about that. I could write about their history and rivalry with Los Angeles Lakers but instead I will write about Celtics future witch is in my opinion very grim. They have seven players that have been in the league for more than ten years, some of them are playing their last year. Only four players have been in the league for less than five years. Was it worth it to trade seven, young, good players for Kevin Garnett? I think it was but in a long run it was not. What if they do not win the championship this or next year? Boston before this season had one of the worst season in their history and the trade with Minnesota, where Boston got Kevin Garnett, made people come to the games again and brought new hope. That hope is going to disappear in two years when all those players retire or are not good anymore. I hate that about mangers. They are greedy and selfish. If they see an opportunity they will grab, which is ok, but they do not look ahead.
Look what happened to Miami Heath! They were the World Champions two years ago and now they have the worst record in the NBA! They made the same mistake Boston is heading to. They signed bunch of veterans for one year in order to get a championship ring and now when they are all gone they do not even have enough players to compete. I am a big Boston fan. Before Tabor my favorite teams were Knicks and Bulls, but they disappointed me so many times in the past few years that I lost my patience. I feel like the same thing is going to happen with the Celtics. Salary Cap is way over the limit. Actually is 46 million dollar over the limit!! They cannot get new players this summer or even in next few years. I wish them luck this and next year. But after that luck is not going to save them.
