Celtics Team Plane Delayed in Los Angeles

In an extremely unfortunate circumstance, the Celtics team plane has been delayed in Los Angeles do to “mechanical malfunctioning.” As a result, the plane has been grounded and the Celtics are still in L.A., waiting for a plane to arrive to take them straight to Boston.

More from the Boston Globe’s Marc J. Spears, as of 5:49 p.m. EST:

At 5:30 p.m., Celtics radio announcer Cedric Maxwell reported on sports radio WEEI that a 757 had been flown in to take the Celtics back to Boston on a direct flight.

Spears also reported that Ray Allen will play in Game 6. He left immediately after Game 5 to deal with a family illness, but it appears both Allen and and his child will be OK.

My Thoughts: It’s good to see that Ray Allen will be playing in Game 6…but it’s very unfortunate that the Celtics’ return had to be delayed so much. If it smells looks like a rat, smells like a rat….then it must be a rat. I really hope that someone involved with the Lakers or Los Angeles in general did not have anything to do with the plane’s sudden mechanical problems, as it is an amazingly unfortunate coincidence for the Celtics. Let’s just hope it has no effect on Game 6. BEAT LA!

  1. Sounds like either the NBA or the Lakers are trying to get the advantage. Remember when Denver’s bus caught on fire on the freeway going to the Staples Center, and then the Spurs plane was on the tarmac after the New Orleans series? Sounds like someone should be looking into this to see if the NBA or Lakers are involved.
