Banner 17 on the horizon?
Ok, well as many of you who enjoy basketball and professional sports may know, the 2007-2008 Celtics is an entirely different team than the baby Celts of yesteryear. I mean, let's see... we still have... Paul Pierce. Oh, yeah, plus Leon Powe, Kendrick Perkins, and Rajon Rondo. Plus Tony Allen. Kandi Man is listed as a free agent, so that only gives us 5 of the same guys from last year. The new additions? How does Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, James Posey, Eddie House, and Scot Pollard sound? Plus, tack on Big Baby Davis from LSU and a couple other newbies and we have ourselves a motherfucking contender! We still need a veteran PG to help guide Rondo in what could be the biggest season of his career, despite the fact that he's only a "sophomore". A backup Center would be great, as well. Obviously, Mutombo is still on the free agency, and Chris Webber is somewhere out there... I can't imagine why these guys wouldn't want to jump onto the Celtics ship at this point in their careers... but we shall see. But yeah, another difference between this season and the past few seasons? This team will be good. No, scratch that. This team will potentially be, dare I say, unbelievable. We will be able to go places the C's haven't been to in nearly 20 years with this team. I cannot wait for the season to start, and look forward to watching the Celtics on national TV (a major change from the past few seasons!)
