Thinking Bold, the Celtic Way

Look at that trio huh?

Celtic Pride is made up of many things: heart, pride, grit, determination, the list goes on. However, what makes the Celtics Organization different from others is the goal: to win championships and raise banners. While this is obviously the goal of every NBA franchise, the Celtics are particularly good at this, as they have raised 17 of them while most have never even raised one. As Celtics fans, we are so lucky to have such a prestigious organization but currently we are in a rebuilding stage that is necessary to return to the hierarchy of the NBA.

Therefore, if we look at the 06-07 team and this 13-14 team, there are quite a few connections. 1st, both teams were bad, like top 5 lottery lock bad (which this year is actually pretty good.), 2nd, their captain missed an extended amount of the season(Rondo missed the 1st half and Pierce missed 7 weeks), 3rd, they each had an elite defender at SG( Tony Allen and Avery Bradley) 4th, they each had a young, blossoming player in Jared Sullinger and Al Jefferson, etc.

Thankfully, we know how the first saga ends. The Celtics trade their 5th pick(Jeff Green) for Ray Allen and eventually trade almost half the roster to acquire Kevin Garnett and eventually win the NBA championship. The road to the title showed that three stars on their respective teams can come together and put egos aside and win it all.(compared to MIA where they had the choke in the 2011 finals and their redemption in 2012 & 2013.)

The question is: how will this saga write itself. Me? I see only one outcome and that involves the two superstars at the top of the page. The reason this team is necessary is because of the Celtics themselves, as Dwayne Wade was quoted saying the influence the Big 3 had on their coming together. Plus, each of these players would benefit from each other as each has a particular skill: Rondo can pass(duh), Love can rebound, and Anthony can score. These things are all necessary to a successful championship.

In the end, the goal is to raise a banner and win a championship and this seems like the best possible way to do it. Post your suggestions in the comments section below.

Like I said.....
