Let's go Celtics! (clap, clap, clap-clap-clap) Let's go Celtics (clap, clap, clap-clap-clap)

That was the last impression of the 2011-2012 season. The front office decided to run it back one more time and even though a certain shooting guard decided to defect, there's a lot left to love about this team.

celtics - End of a Celtics era brings new promise - WEEI | Paul Flannery

Once mysterious and almost unapproachable, Garnett has opened up and become part of the family. He’s your crazy uncle Kevin who always has a story to tell and wisdom to impart. The enigmatic Rondo no longer is the tempestuous younger brother. He’s a leader now, maybe the leader, although time ultimately will tell. As for Pierce, every day on the calendar becomes another day closer to the time when his number is raised to the rafters. Five years feels like forever in the NBA, but as it turned out, it wasn’t enough time. Some teams refuse to lose. The Celtics refuse to die. They have unfinished business and a promise to keep to each other, their new teammates and the city that is ready to embrace them as never before.

I love this team. Boston loves this team. I'm proud to root for this team. I'm proud of our fans.

Who's ready for the season to start?
