Youth Card Getting Old

A year ago, we toasted the end of a lottery season with a sigh of relief. Good enough, it was thought, that a year of bad basketball had come to an end. Better that we were assured moves would be made and a more veteran-laden Celtics [team stats] team would be in place for 2006-07.

“The curtain has come down on the era of off-the-rack excuses,” it was written. “No more will we have to hear the Celtics say they’re not using their inexperience as an excuse . . . only to turn around and use their inexperience as an excuse.”

But after a season in which youth issues still dominated - injuries notwithstanding - there is just one thing to say regarding the unwillingness to listen to excuses.

This time we really mean it.
