What doom and gloom? What are you talking about?
I just think that nothing will happen until Febuary 21 - if then.By this time we may be solidly out of the playoff picture already, so what does it matter?
Give AB a few weeks to get his game legs back under him, and then let's see where we're at.
Or, we could be in the midst of a significant winning streak.
One of these days, CelticsBlog will just implode upon itself with doom and gloom.
If we're winning at the same clip until "Bradley gets his legs under him" -- which I would guess is the assumption -- we'll be indeed out of the playoff picture.
Why would this post suggest anything else? Is there a need to give Bradley leeway if we're in the midst of a winning streak?
The "doom and gloom" I'm speaking of is your point of view that the C's "could" continue winning at the same clip they have so far this season - even with AB.
A bit over-dramatic? Sure. But this is CelticsBlog, right?
For me? I choose to want to give this team a while to see "IF" AB being back is "really" the salve this team needs. That is why I chose "wait until the 21st of Feb" option.
I'm believing, on pure hope, that BOS can get it right over the next few weeks and reel off some win streak(s) in conjunction with AB's return. By doing that, they will play themselves right back into contender status, I believe.
