Celtics Morning Joe: The Celtics road will become easier at months end

Posted by shawn cassidy on November 25, 2013 at 5:00 AM

The Celtics are a decent 5-10 with a rookie coach, and without their star player. You couldn't ask for more after one of the roughest months in some time. Let's not forget that the Celtics were in 13-of-15 games with the Rockets and T'Wolves being the only blowouts. You can take your tanking and shove it you non Celtic fans. I'm probably wrong for doing this, but a site I once wrote for was so into tanking that it was disturbing. I lost respect for that, and I couldn't believe they called themselves fans.

Maybe it's a young thing. Sometimes people want the easy way out, but honestly it's not the easy way out. Why would you wish for tanking when we have a great new coach. He's building a culture, and so far so good in the Stevens era. I got a little bit off track there, but what about the month that's almost over.

Basketball statistics guru Ed Kupfer charted the distance traveled by all 30 NBA teams through Saturday's games. As the Celtics navigate their second stretch of five games in five cities over seven days, this reminds you just how daunting the November schedule has been:

The Celtics will play 11 of their first 19 games on the road, culminating with a visit to Milwaukee on Nov. 30.

The Celtics play just 12 games in December with 9 games at the Garden. With Rondo potentially coming back in the month of December. The Celtics could stay in the playoff hunt, and most fans will say what good is that? It's good for the Sully's, Olynyk's of the world. Plus if Rondo takes this bunch to the playoffs that may attract other star players. A quicker rebuild for this franchise is building around Rondo. We know what we get from him, and what he's all about. As for a wonder kid coming in. That's a long process perhaps.

I like how people assume a high lottery pick = instant success and championships. Just as we know our very own Rondo was selected at 21 by the Suns, across the country in LaLaLand there is a man that is the closest equal to Michael Jordan we have seen. You know who it is and yes, he was selected 13th by Charlotte. There are MANY other examples this happening all the damn time in the NBA.

Suck on that dumb ass tanking fans. Losing on purpose creates a negative losing environment which in turn makes our players out to be just that, losers. I want none of that shit on my team. We are building a culture for winning and that takes patience. Just ask Larry Bird and how he constructed his Pacers team.

Patience is key.
