I never understood the whole weather thing. Is it really that big a deal? First off, nearly half the season you spend in the road in various climates. When youíre home, you drive everywhere, so what does it really matter (not like youíre walking/taking public in extreme conditions)? The offseason can run anywhere from 3-5 months depending on a playoff run, plenty of time to get your sun fix.
As for the city itself, Iím not a Bostonian but Iím tired of the racist narrative. The Celtics were the first team to draft an African-American AND the first to make one a head coach. This isnít 40+ years ago. Itís a great city for any race or culture. Not every city is NYC, but you can find everything you need in the Boston area.
The reality is all you need to do is have them stand under all those banners. Show them clips like Celtics fans chanting ďLetís Go CelticsĒ for about 3 minutes straight as we are getting closed out. Show them how we welcome back our beloved stars. Have them sit down with DA, Wyc, and Brad and see they are all amongst the best in the league in their respective roles.
There is no franchise that compares to us. Not the Lakers. Not the Spurs. Not the Bulls or Warriors or any other flavor of a decade. We are the Boston Celtics. Putting on that white and green jersey is a basketball history lesson.
