Here's my fantasy.
The Celtics can all the extraneous nonsense attendant to their so-called game "presentation." All of it.
They rely on the fans to supply their legitimate enthusiasm and their own N-O-I-S-E.
No booming stuff. No Lucky (Sorry. He seems like a good guy). No nuttin'.
Especially, those stupid videos like that insipid one they play before the game, the one where the coach goes on about "nobody pushing us around in our house." Don't any of these marketing geeks know this is Boston, not Orlando? And is there anything worse than using the "Hoosiers" clip in which Gene Hackman talks about playing hard and well and "you'll be winners in my book" before the fourth quarter? If the Celtics are losing, you don't want to hear that crap. And if they're winning, what sense does that make?
And don't get me started about that inane non-sequitur known as the Will Ferrell "Cannonball" clip.
It would be a tribute to the glorious history of this franchise and a tribute to the real fans in attendance if they had the good sense to abandon all that extraneous drivel and allow people to react spontaneously to the most important game of the season.
I told you it was a fantasy.
