Write a Celtics haiku poem

Just for fun.

Here’s your creative writing assignment for the day. Write a Celtics related haiku. Anyone can write them and they can be a lot of fun.

Don’t know how? Here’s a brief description I got from google:

The haiku is a Japanese verse in three lines. Line one has 5 syllables, line 2 has 7 syllables and line three has 5 syllables. Haiku is a mood poem and it doesn't use any metaphors or similes. Usually when Haiku is taught the students are only given the restriction of the number of lines and syllables.

Each year Tom Ziller does a mock draft entirely in haiku.

Here’s what he had for Jayson Tatum (this was before the Sixers-Celtics trade):

Tatum is real good.
Tremendous feel for the game.
Elite size, also.

The Suns’ summer should
be intriguing. Balancing
youth and growth is hard.

Tatum, in that sense,
provides a bridge. He’s ready
now, strong upside too.

Ok, now it is your turn!
