The Celtics are playing like crap right now. Poor offense, poor rebounding and the whole team is one big turnover machine. Their play is reminiscent of their big slump last year after the Perk trade.
I have been in denial for a while about them being old, but finally, I think I'm going to have to give in. They look beyond old. The worst part is that they look disinterested at times and lack motivation. Since when did the Celtics need motivation to win?
Frankly, I've become much more interested in watching Jeremy Lin play than watching the C's lose to a bunch of teams they should be destroying. Losing to Detroit twice is inexcusable. The only reason they didn't get whacked is because....well...Detroit sucks.
At this point, if we can get some talent for the future, I say do it. I love the C's, but dragging this season out is torturous.
