We need a moment to digest the end of Kyrie's season.  It's tough.  We've been treated to an unbelievable season of high and lows.  Right now it feels really low, like the latest surgery is the final blow.  The clouds got darker, the road longer.

But there's a reason for an "optimism" thread. And that's to remember that our team is down, but there's basketball left to play and a hungry bunch of young Celtics ready to play it. 

So when you are ready, it's time.  Time for our young Jays to thrive.  For our bigs to come up bigger.  For our rookies to outplay veterans.  And for fans to turn it up to 11.  It will be time for our team to don the mantel of underdogs, play loose and shock the world.  Time to rage against the dying of the light. 

We've all seen this before, but it is coming time for us to remember. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTv1Dmu5CYc

Who's next indeed!

For those of us. Who thought the season was over after game one, these playoffs are a wonderful bonus. I am so impressed. By how the bench has stepped up and won games.

Kyrie hurt? No problem.  Each game will be fun from here on out.  ;D

Check out my new song -- I've been rapping my tail off and I can ball like crazy, too (I'm 6'10"). The Raptors and their "brand ambassador" will surely be a tough task if we face them, as well as either the Rockets or Warriors but as positive as this season has been it surely doesn't hurt to believe. Kyrie Irving will be back soon; no need to disrespect the Milwaukee Bucks but we do not need to be "caught by surprise" against a young, small market team that wants to establish itself as a playoff contender. I'm hoping we take care of this series quickly and Irving can come back well rested and in great condition; he's a playoff veteran like most of our guys so we need his experience. Good luck and go Celtics!!!

Well, this is going good ☘️☘️. Ten years ago was the last time this team won a championship; think about that for a while...

Cs are up 2-1, not down 2-1, with HCA.

The Celtics may need to win a game in Cleveland in order to put major pressure on the Cavs heading back to Boston. In 2010 the Celtics defeated the Cavs despite them having homecourt advantage due to the outstanding play of the Big 3 and especially Rajon Rondo, who himself outplayed LeBron James en route to a Finals rematch with the Lakers that season. Im from Ohio and have personally seen LeBron lose the great majority of his finals appearances since his first appearance in 2007 someone from my city (Cincinnati) joked, asking do you want LeBron to lose 10 Finals appearances?! after I previewed a song entitled Love Love Tayo from my upcoming rap album (Im TayoFromOhio, btw) where I mentioned LeBron in the 2nd verse. We all know Im a Celtics fan and Im rooting for the Celtics because they did better in the regular season and this is the 10 year anniversary of their championship season. Also, the Celtics have only lost in the Finals 4 times during their entire franchise history, so obviously we wouldnt want to lose if we went to the Finals, but I think this team is good enough to win Banner 18 this season. Ill be rooting for the Celtics, but the Defending Champions the Golden State Warriors and the Rockets will be tough if we make it.

The reality of the situation is that if we go to the Finals we should do everything we can to try and win a Championship, because in my opinion its better to have a positive Finals record:

To me all of this is the appetizer. Next year is the main course.

Some people think that Warriors broke the basketball.
