Now that I think about it, this team is facing the similar situation of 93' Celtic team.
Our young leader went down to carry the load (93 was Lewis, then 2013 was Rondo).
Then our aging veterans tried to lead this team (93 was McHale and Parish, then 2013 was KG and Pierce).
Let's compare the cast from each member of the team.
KG and PP - McHale and Parish
Rondo - Reggie Lewis
Green - Dee Brown
Jet - Xman?
And what's worse, both are eliminated/to be eliminated (well let's hope not for the current core) to be eliminated in the first round.
This season was almost a carbon copy of 1993. The season record are not far from each other either.
Just a fun fact.
