So it has been quite a while since I've had an opportunity to speak with work and such. Over the past couple weeks, the Celtics and the Bruins have been absolutely shameful. There are no excuses for any of us anymore, busy or not, it is time to get behind our teams.
Injury Plagued Celtics
It's obvious that Kevin Garnett is not the player he was before his knee injury. Whether or not he has fully recovered or is playing scared, he isn't giving us his maximum effort. Not only is KG hurt, Glen "Big Baby" Davis can't stay healthy either. For a team that decided to trade away all of it's depth to Eastern Conference contenders, I'm pretty pissed that all we got in return was a run down, Rasheed Wallace.
Rajon Rondo has been stealing the spotlight and the fans hearts this season, making his first all-star appearance as a reserve, and Ray Allen has been something of a name from the past as it seems. We signed on for the Big 3 and now have just slightly less than a Big letdown for this season. So much for our 2010 predictions.
A Long Winter
The Bruins haven't done much to impress this season either after their playoff "run" last season. The B's are on a six game skid and have fallen to 12th overall in the Eastern Conference. So much for wanting it just as bad as we do. The off-season trades, injuries and lack of depth and dare I say, heart, is beginning to show for the Bruins.
Our teams need us now more than ever, and I vow to be standing by and supporting them through this time. Although my support comes as ripping them both apart, sometimes you just need some tough love to preform to your potential, just ask Laurence Maroney about that. Good Day!
