I'm going to hazard a guess that no, IT didn't say that.

Here goes the excitement for the season... and possibly our future.

Terrible injury, I feel very bad for Gordon Hayward who didn't even have the chance to start this new chapter of his career. Hope he recovers well and as quickly as possible but I think he is at least out for this season and part of the next one.

I'm sure stupid Utah fans will bring up the word "karma". You could tell how bad it was seeing the reaction of Celtics and Cavs players alike after the injury.

  • Boston Celtics= Championships, nothing less.
I mean it really sucks but there is some positive to look forward to here.

Tatum and Brown at ages 19 and 20 looked incredibly composed in the 2nd half.
Personally I'm still really excited about this season to see these two guys develop.
Marcus Smart and Rozier were incredible too.

Hayward's injury is devastating for our chances at potentially making the finals, but we can still strive to make the ECF as a goal and watch Brown/Tatum/Smart/Rozier all develop.

Kyrie looks simply amazing in catch and shoot situations as well. And he had 10 assists!

Plenty to still smile about while we mourn the loss of Hayward.
"We are lucky we have a very patient GM that isn't willing to settle for being good and coming close. He wants to win a championship and we have the potential to get there still with our roster and assets."

Read that last line again. One more time.

Lots of "cautious optimism" coming from doctors that have commented on the nature of the injury.  It obviously sucks to see him get hurt like that but I honestly felt bad for Gordon.  As a Celtics fan my only concern is/was the potential for Gordon to come back at 100% in the future.  All early indications show that a full recovery is very likely.  The only thing it hurts for this season is our ability to beat the Cavs in the ECF.  I still think this team has the talent to put up a fight against Toronto, Washington, Milwaukee etc. 

All we can root for as fans is for this team to max out its potential with the current roster.

The good news for us is that we are absolutely loaded with young talent and I still am pumped to see the everyone's development throughout the season.

Pretty much my feeling as well.  I am not able to read all the threads and comments, just too painful an event.  However, I take solace in that the young guys will get more PT and may develop faster.  Those guys you listed are all 23 or under!

Yes, I was really impressed by Brown, he looks like a totally different player from last year. Very confident. Tatum looked good for a rookie too so hopefully more playing time will allow them to improve quickly and become key players.

I agree with both of you.  I have always been a fan that tries to enjoy the ride and fortunately we have a coach that will get the most out of our group.  There is so much to look forward to for this season and I have zero doubts that this is going to be a fun team to watch. 

Imagine if the Hayward injury happened with the same roster from last season.  That would have truly been devastating as a fan.

Imagine if the Hayward injury happened while Thomas was still on the roster. We'd be looking for Jae Crowder to carry the team...

Yes, that is the risk that most trade skeptics neglected.

This thought actually came to me a few minutes after the injury. It could have been a lot worse.

Either way, the season is not lost. 81 games left. This is still a playoff team and players like JB, JT,  and Semi will greatly benefit from the exposure they will get in the coming months.

Let's hope GH has a good surgery and that maybe he can come back by playoff time.

The downside is this stinks.   The silver lining is that Tatum and Brown are going to play and develop big time.  The following year this will make us a ton stronger!  I am still sad over it but this will help us in the long run it is just one of those things that doesn't seem that way at first.

Waawaawaa.

My infant niece cries less than the sissies on this blog.

Hayward is a very good player, but he is certainly not Lebron.

This almost guarantees that Jaylen, Tatum, and Smart will get extended minutes this year, thus expediting their development.

If you thought that the Celtics were going to beat GS, you're crazy.

Waaaaaaa.

Not really helpful. A lot of us devote too much of our personal time - even during the summer - to researching, discussing, and watching the Cs. Expectations were high this season and to not even get a 1/2 quarter of basketball of our exciting new team is disappointing. People should be allowed to vent even if you think you are too cool to do so.
