"Are they getting longer in the tooth? Yeah, but that's what happens," said former Celtic Kevin McHale who is now a TV analyst for TNT. "Believe me, if you stayed 25 (years old), none of us would ever play because Jerry West and Bill Russell and everybody would never let us play. You get older, so it's natural, you just get older and it happens. What happens is, they start looking at the season differently. It's going to be after the All-Star game and letting Doc get Marquis Daniels back, which makes Eddie House more effective, getting Big Baby in, who had the hand injury. I think they are fine. They are where they need to be."
I see where the Army is projecting a second round exit for the locals. Possible. So is a first-round exit for that matter. I mean, come on, let's be honest. No matter who they play in the first round, we know there is a pretty good chance of it going 6 or 7 games.
Then again, if the Cs can get healthy, stay healthy, and develop some kind of rhythm, the playoffs will be the playoffs, which is to say an opportunity to slug it out on a round-by-round basis and see who's standing at the end.
Is there something else I'm missing?
