An NBA season is long,and an NBA season has many turns,and it has many stories that kill your team,or they could define your team. Injuries could turn you into a nobody after you might be a title contender. Just like life you could have it all one,and the next your dyeing for a job. Look at last year when the Celtics had the Heat's number in the first three games of the season. Then the Celtics made a dumb ass trade,and they had the Rondo injury,and of course Shaq watch. Did you ever see the Mavs winning a title last season? I didn't ,and I l know most of you didn't see it. So anything can happen in a season. The Celtics hit a rough stretch early this season with two road games,and without Pierce. Did you really expect the Celtics to win last night? They were on the road,and they had no Pierce. I didn't know what to expect to be honest,but I feared a blowout,and thankfully the Celtics had enough talent,and heart to claw their way back into the game. The Celtics came within three-points 2:02 to go in the game.
Even though the Celtics fell short in their comeback attempt. You must see a glimpse of hope with this years team. Are they better than the Heat? No,but the Celtics could be down the road. Like I said about last season. The Heat lost to the Celtics in the first three meetings,and it looked like the Celtics had the Heat. I think the Celtics have the right bench,and talent to get the job done this season . Will Cole play like that every time? I don't know,but he's a rookie,and the odds are low. The Celtics have time to fix their issues,but I see a lot of heart,and a lot of want from this team. The need to panic isn't now,and the Celtics have three games coming up that they should win. Will they beat the Hornets,and the Pistons,and Wizards to go 3-2? I hope so,and I think they can. Things can turn on you in a long NBA season. I'm glad we have the soldiers we have in this long NBA war.We know how injuries can turn your world upside down. Anything can happen.
