The Celtics repeatedly have mentioned “turning a corner” to get back
on a winning track. But with 17 games left in the regular season, how
far away is that corner?
“I don’t know, maybe 17 blocks,” Rajon Rondo guesstimated on Friday.
“It should be the same zip code.”
Maybe I'm missing something… or maybe I'm reading too deep into things. But I don't think so. I think the message is clear: We'll turn the corner when the playoffs start.
That's dangerous territory, fellas. Hopefully DRJ was on to something.
Ray Allen, for what it's worth, was a little less forward with his metaphor.
“I live on an island. I don’t have blocks or anything in the country,“
Ray Allen said. “Any time you have to turn a corner, the corner is a
block away. It’s just a block away because once you do something well,
you feel like you’ve turned a corner. So it’s never that far away. Just
like when you’re good, you’re just teeter-tottering on being bad, vice
Sorry Ray… Rajon already spilled the beans.
Hey Celtics… I want to personally thank you for letting everyone know that you're pretty much bailing on the rest of the regular season. We've still got ticket giveaways and content to produce. We'd like our readers to still be a little excited. So even though you're not trying right now… we still have to.
Pay attention… so you can see how it's done.
