1983-84 Boston Celtics
Someone in the Celtics organization did something wrong in the first week of last February. It has to be that. How else can you explain what has happened to this club over the last 9 months? From the time Bill Fitch arrived in Boston to Feb. 4, 1983, the club had a winning percentage of 76 percent - 223 wins and 70 losses. Since that time (including last year's playoffs) the record is 30 wins and 26 losses for 54 percent. How does one explain the dramatic dropoff in performance from such a high level to mediocre with the same players?
