I'm so upset!

Also like to note Hayward and Horford were taken out in mid air, not even a foul in Haywards case. Thought it was automatic if you hit someone in mid air?

Regardless I'm totally bummed out! :'(

Unlikely to get those kind of calls against LeBron and Wade

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.

Not an issue of being cool. Just not being chicken little. The Celtics were not favored to win a ring yesterday, and they aren't today. The season is not over. I was pointing out that many are acting weak here. Many teams have overcome injuries to have good seasons. There are many potential positives that could come out of this season. To say that the season is over is foolish.

Get well soon, Gordon.
Did IT really say that? Thatís cold blooded not on the Celts but on Gordonís part.

To clarify: No, IT didnt say that. He's a good guy.

I was reading through many of these posts. Understandably, many are emotional.

After a day of thinking, do many of the posters that abide by the theory that this season is over still believe this?

If so, why? What has changed since Gordon Hayward is no longer available?

I'm an optimist and wear green goggles, but even I thought that this team would have their hands full with CLE and would lose to GSW in the finals.

After a day of reflection, I don't think the Celtics destiny this year will be all that different.

Yes, I'm bummed that I won't be able to watch Gordo play this year, but I'm also intrigued that I'll be able to see more Tatum and Brown.

Anyone think that either the Celtics would have beat the Warriors w/ Hayward, or now they won't even make the playoffs without him?

Elite 3pt shooting. 

Losing him means defenses colapsing on all Kyrie's action.  It's gonna be rough

lol just realized this thread was called "Season over"

We get to watch a great young exciting team that should compete for HCA in the playoffs.

My point is not to beat up on Hayward here.

However, he shot .398 from 3 last year, which is the exact same % as Jae Crowder. Do you consider Jae to be an elite 3 point shooter?

I think Hayward is a good overall bball player. He will be missed.

I just don't think that he pushed the Celtics over the goal line into a new category of winning. In his absence, I don't think that the Celtics will be dramatically different.

The season we THOUGHT we were going to watch is over.  Winning 55-60 games, making a run at the Finals, finally beating Bron.  It's over.

But we still have a team to watch and they're going to fight to make the playoffs and maybe compete to win a series.  Lots of young guys to develop.  And all the way they'll be playing with house money because everybody understands they can't accomplish what they might have if Hayward hadn't gotten hurt.

Then you must have not watched GH last year. He does everything this team gonna miss him so much. Kyrie gonna be trapped/doubled everytime now. Offense is going to be ugly and the defense we all knew was going to be a work in progress.

The Celtics beat a pretty good team tonight. Both the offense and defense have looked solid at times. I think there's plenty to play for this year. Might there be consensus that this season is, in fact, not over?

Of course we're going to look good and win some games.  But to think we're not going to miss an all star that is capable of taking over games is foolish.  The guy cna get 20 points in his sleep.  Guys Jaylen and Tatum have a lot of potential but they're going to be up and down and aren't quite ready to be go to guys and consistently take pressure off Kyrie.
