The Celtics head into the 2013-14 season with little hope. The Celtics have fallen from the NBA's elite, and now they head down a road that hasn't been traveled since the 2006-07 season. A little bit of hope can keep a flame alive. A little bit of fear can help you to survive in an era that hasn't been defined yet. A little bit of rain can hide so many tears, and we won't shed tears of joy this season, but more about the past, but I think a bit of love can last through the lean year, or years that are ahead.
"I don't know, man. I honestly don't know. I'm looking for a surprise. And hopefully it's a good surprise," said Wallace. "[I hope] we come out and understand the situation that we're in, understand what we need to do as a team and as individuals, and start the season off on a good note."
Expect the unexpected. That's the mantra this year, and I think it's a fair assement, and maybe I'm wishing for the best, but I also predicted the C's to win 4 games in November. We are never fully protected.But we do the best we can with what we have. The Celtics will be without Rondo the first month, and I expect the worst possible outcome out of that.
"As the leader of the organization, I do need to temper expectations and be realistic. And be fair. Because I think expectations sometimes get out of control for the players and the coaches and so forth. I am enthusiastic about it. I also see a lot of hard work ahead of us."
” -- Danny Ainge, Celtics president of basketball operations
You try to view your life in frames. Trying to grab at it. To go back in time. It doesn't work that way my friends. The new era has already begun, but a new story starts Wednesday night. It may be a bit bumpy, but it's a path will have to endure as fans, and they'll have to endure as a team. Nothing's easy and this will be far from that.
