Finally, for the first time since 2012 the Boston Celtics are back in action on Christmas day. They will be traveling to play the New York Knicks, who have added Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, and Courtney Lee this offseason.
Since The Celtics acquired Isaiah Thomas things have been different. He has brought a buzz around Boston that has been missing since the big three. Now, basketball fans want to see Isaiah and These Celtics compete on national television. Which will finally happen.
All NBA fans know Christmas day is the biggest day of the year for the NBA. It’s the day where superstars, and the best teams compete with the world watching. It says a lot that The Celtics will be playing. No, this doesn’t mean the rebuild is over. The rebuild will continue until the next championship comes to Boston. However, all the “experts’ see what’s brewing in Boston. We have a young team, a great coach, and now have two all-stars. Plus, Boston is a sexy pick to challenge the Cavaliers in the eastern conference.
This could and should be a successful season for The Celtics. The additions of Al Horford, and Gerald Green are great pickups for this team. Horford is a bona fide all-star, and Gerald Green will be great providing scoring off the bench. How about Ray Allen? We all know The Celtics struggle with shooting, so why not give Allen a chance? I would.
The Celtics had 7 nationally televised games last year. This season? They are scheduled for 22. The Boston Celtics are finally back on the map.
