Pierce still thinks the Celtics can compete with anybody in the Eastern Conference.

You can definitely draw a lot of comparisons between the Rose-less Bulls and the Rondo-less Celtics but one thing the Bulls don't have is 2 hall of fame shoo-ins.

Let's do this.

It's about time someone bumped this. There, that felt good.

I have to bump this, for the mere fact that I am as tired as I've ever been of trade threads, blow-it-up ideas, end-of-the-Celtics-world prognostications, screw Danny, Doc, training staff, Wyc, and even Tommy threads, and every other possible negative absurdity that can be conceived by Celtic fandom. It's there, every day, an endless barrage of pessimism and craziness grounded in the mere fact that we're in a slump and people need some kind of outlet to help them rationalize and create an easy excuse for this "down" time.

They happen ... to every team, and this team and city and franchise and fandom has seen far far worse, and recovered from it successfully without "blowing it up" or selling our most loyal and die-hard players down the river, or trading away a fourteen-year veteran who has played for this team his entire career, or bashing every green-blooded representative possible just so we can have warm, fuzzy dreams of banner number eighteen every night our head hits the pillow.

I know this post will do absolutely nothing to change any of that, I know it won't stop the wheels of time or progress from making changes that I won't agree with, I know the negativity and obnoxious trade threads will continue, (and far past the trade deadline), I know the "bashing-the-scapegoat-of-the-day" posts will march on unfettered, and I know optimism is a far less popular and far less attractive or cool stance to take in this faux reality-based new technological world we live in.

That said, I'm not giving in to any of it, and while so many will continue to go about the business of discouragement and (ha) "reality", I will stay my silly little course and keep smiling, knowing that the Celtics will remain the Celtics, that I will remain loyal to the core, that they will always be exciting and worthwhile to watch and root for, and that this is so far from the worst period in Celtics history that it's not worth even mentioning in serious conversation.

Just needed to say that, for myself, and that's what this thread is for, IMHO ... and I do feel better. So, before you reply with negativity, please do it in a different thread, as such is not allowed here, and I can post my blind optimism here without impunity, (that keeps me smiling as well). Oh, and until the day comes, if ever, I'm not wishing farewell to anyone on the Celtics roster ... they are Celtics until something happens to change that, and I thank them all for their efforts, as always. ;D

Same here.

Here's a TP for your post above.  Great optimism.  I look forward to a hard-fought second half of the season, and hopefully a deep playoff run!

Fab Melo, Terrence Williams and Jordan Crawford so far.

Leggo Celtics!

I know it's early, but I'm very happy with the little moves that Danny has made and is making.  Crawford, TWill and DJ White all represent young players that came into the league with high potential ceilings, but something wasn't going there way early in their careers.  Either poor teams, attitudes or maturity.  We are getting these guys cheap and at a time when they are all due to mature naturally, not to mention that we kept some role models around in KG, Pierce and Jet.  I think these three young guys, Bradley, Green, Lee, Sully, Melo, and possibly one more addition give us talented assets that we can either trade in the offseason or keep and team up with Rondo, KG, Pierce, Jet and even Bass to form a formidable team of talented athletes.  I'm excited for the rest of the season and beyond. 
People are bashing Ainge since the trade deadline, but I think he pulled off some low risk, high reward moves that could be huge going forward.

We didn't have KG and STILL had Miami wetting their pants.

Can't wait for the playoffs.
