    As stated in another thread. Maybe they will surprise you as have the RS this year. Maybe it won't be as bad as what many already think?????

     

    Love the Red Sox, Bs, Cs, Pats and enjoy the ride every year.


    30 wins would be considered not as bad?

    Never said anything about number of wins. Just said like RS who were picked for last maybe the Cs could do similar next year despite what seems to be a coming bad season

    Forget Wiggins! The lottery is rigged so we can't have it! This league hates the Celtics! Time to stop dreaming!



    While on the face of it, this seems a little paranoid, but it's a (paraniod) fantasy I also hold.  The Celtics have never received a break from the leauge since Stern wrested power from a fairer-minded commisioner, and there's no reason to believe that Stern's toady will do anything differently.  Whether through a fixed lottery (fixed in the sense that there probably will be fewer if balls with Boston on them than should be (backroom shenanigans, again), or through negated trades to get a superstar or two, the league will continue its stance - Boston gets nothing and will have to work harder, see biased officiating, and be stymied in any way possible to a. enhance the NY and LA franchises, b. ensure no championship in Boston, and c. make certain that no stars will want to come to a losing team.  Other than that, everything's hunky dory.

    Happy Fourth, everyone.
