As the NBA regular season came to an end this past Thursday, this Saturday marks the start of a new season. As the Boston Celtics prepare to open the NBA playoffs, this Sunday against the Atlanta Hawks. These playoffs will be especially important, because this maybe final time the big three will all be in Celtics green together. The trio of Kevin Garrett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen, helped bring back a championship to Boston in 2008. Sadly due to their age and expiring contracts, this fearsome trio might be breaking up this summer. But fear not Boston fans, as Tim Leglar, from ESPN says,
Boston is the biggest challenge to Miami and Chicago…Clearly. And it’s the last team that those two teams wanted to see in their rear-view mirror catching them,” said Legler. “And that’s exactly what the Boston Celtics have done.
This year Celtics are posed make a deep playoff run, and bring banner number 18, back to Boston. It has been a wild ride and fans know it will be Championship or bust with this veteran team. Than again when hasn’t that begin the mantra with Boston sports teams recently.
