Life is too fleeting, it goes too fast. One minute you live it, the next it is past. A few weeks ago the Celtics laid in the hospital on life support. The coma was far to real to let go. It felt like we were standing over a lifeless body waiting to let go. The player's we once knew started to fall one by one to age, and lack of energy. Sitting in the waiting room sipping on a cup of coffee, and the thoughts of survival, and life bounce around your head until it wants to jump out of your ears. The battle of letting go, and trying to accept things the way they are, and as you try to let go. The thought of living comes back around. I have hope that the Celtics could get out of this coma state.
Just as the Doctors said all hope is lost. A miracle dashes into the room like a cat wanting to eat dinner. The arms start to move, and the eyes open one at a time. Life, something that was gone just a few moments ago, was now giving a smile to millions of people across the world. How could the doctors be so wrong (media)?
This team is just not ready to go peacefully into the night. All things must pass, but when it's time, it will be time. Now is not the time for the Celtics to let go. In basketball terms the Celtics are playing the best basketball in the NBA right now. Only the Heat are playing better basketball. Defense is a form of life. You fight to protect what you have, and you fight and protect the ones you love. Defense is protecting, and fighting what you have, and you back-up your teammates. The Celtics are only back 5 games from the top spot in the East. I'm not saying the Celtics will catch up, or that they should go for it. What I'm saying is this. Their as good as the top teams when they want to be, and I think the wanting is in the room sitting right beside them.
Basketball gods give us a break. Cause nothing in life is a piece of cake.The Celtics have been struck down with bad luck for the past three seasons, and hell even four if you count this years Jeff Green tragic health issue. I count it because it's a sad story for him, but he's moving forward, and he's looking to return next season. This week is a crucial week. The Celtics are 8-2 in their last ten games, and they have a record of 13-10. If they can beat the Bob kittens who have the worst record in the league, and if they beat the hated Lakers, and move onto Toronto, and take care of them the Celtics will be 16-10. A solid record for this team. Maybe this season will be backwards. The Celtics would usually have a stint in the season were they go 5-9 but much later. Maybe they got it out of the way? They have to remember what's keeping them alive is young legs. Utilize them while you can in the regular season. Because come playoff time the Celtics should be rested, and back-to-backs are gone. One thing I don't know is that if Danny is the greedy uncle in the waiting room wanting to collect the money, or is he crying his eyes out hoping for life.
