There’s no doubt that losing game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals hurts. Especially when you had a 12 point lead early on only to watch it slip away with missed shot after missed shot.
That being said, these young guys getting heavy playoff reps was a great thing, they damn near made it happen, but this team is just missing something that I think I can put my tongue on, here it is:
This team needs a point guard, a PG that can shoot. One that can shoot from anywhere on the floor, a guy that has moves. Moves like Uncle Drew. They also need a wing that can dribble, that can pass, shoot and play defense. A guy like Gordon Hayward. Now I know he only scored 2 points in 2017-18, but I think he has potential. I know what you’re thinking “Danny Ainge never pulls off deals like this”, but this time I think he can, and oh wait…
Cheer up Celtics fans, this team is going to wreck the league next year. I am beyond pumped for the 2018-19 season. This year was a big giant tease that we only got a 5 minute taste of. We thought the season was toast when Hayward went down, this team continued to win. Then Irving went down and this team put LeBron James up against the ropes in the ECF. Can’t wait for the Fall.
