The Boston Celtics
Article by: Bernie
The Boston Celtics are one of the most successful franchises ever. They have the most NBA championships out of any team, they are the heart and sole of Boston. Unlike a lot of sports teams, the Celtics' modern stadium is in the middle of the city. Most sports teams stadium's are not directly in the city, or at least not as direct as the Celtics's. You can have a pint of beer in your favorite Irish pub in Boston, then walk 5 minutes to the game. I remember when I used to go to Celtics games with my dad, we would get to the stadium hours beforehand, and just walk around and see cool places and people.The franchise also found a way to engage the fact there is a high population of Irishmen in Boston. Irish are very proud of the Celtics since Celtics is an Irish name, and the Celtics signature Color is green. This attracts a lot of people to fill out the TD Garden. A lot of the people that attend the Celtics are a lot a like, in ethnicity, in passion for the game and in excitement. I always loved going to Celtics games with my dad. One of the things I liked most was that the Celtics didn't often do drastic changes in roster, now they do it a little more and it's been harder to follow them. I remember when I went to games with him, I would get so excited, I would wonder year after year if they would win the championship. The games actually mattered. I felt like I was so smart because my dad didn't know much about basketball, so I would teach him and tell him all the players I liked, we would both get excited when those players did well. They all played for the Celtics.
When the Celtics stayed with the same group of guys, you felt like you knew them, you felt like they were a part of you. Now it's changed, it's a new group, I hope these guys are together for a long time. They are still building their new team however, but when they get to a good group of guys, I think they should stick with it, unlike KD or Lebron. So everybody can fall back in love with Boston. Who agrees with me?
The Celtics have been improving, and with the smart thinking of Danny Ainge, I believe that they could make there way back to the top. What do you think is the best move for the Celtics right now? Should they work with what they have now, or keep adding new players. Who do you think is a key player for the Celtics to advance to the conference finals. I believe we need an athletic big man, who is more of a defenseman but can also score the rock when needed. Someone like Nerlens Noel or Hassan Whiteside, young and hopeful. Any other ideas?
