A Question for the Boston Celtics
The calendar says January, but its feeling like autumn in the Kevin Garnett Era. When John Henry Bonham died of asphyxiation in 1980, and the band announced the end of Led Zeppelin, a reporter asked the remaining members to describe the group's ten years as the greatest rock-and-roll band on the planet.
"Whooooosh, and it was over," Robert Plant responded.
The same might be said for the Boston Celtics' latest reign at the top of the NBA. There's still a long way to go in the season. But all this team is doing now is getting spanked and then asking for more. If they're gonna lay down, why even show up? Or maybe that's who the Celtics have become, a team of door mats. Only they can answer that question.
A loss at home tomorrow against the Fakers, and it might be time to pull out the "p" word from the 1984 Finals.
