Alright Celtics… time to start playing. I'm toast.
I have the official list of story lines right here… and we're tapped out.
- Big 3 is old – check
- Can Tony Allen replace Posey? – check
- How's Perk's shoulder? – check
- How's our bench? – check
- How do the new guys look? – check
- Bang on the Lakers for still being soft – check
See… we've covered it all. I'm done. Tomorrow night we will stare in slack-jawed amazement… or giddy, um, giddiness… as they Celtics raise their 17th banner and get their rings. Only after that is done can we really get back down to business and start breaking things down again.
I love covering a champion… but man this part of it is boring right now.
