Last year everyone couldn't figure why our beloved Celtics, with all that depth and talent couldn't win consistently. Everyone thought, including myself, that we were set to compete for a ring. I remember the bench players even giving themselves a handle (Bench with an attitude) or some other nonsense.
When we found out the team couldn't play together we were in shock. We blamed Kyrie, he must be the problem right? He hogs the ball, he dribbles too much, he isn't liked, he thinks the earth is flat. We blamed Hayward, he was finished by the injury and would never be the same.
Horford decided to leave, why? Does anyone really know? He obviously felt that the 76ers had a better chance of winning than this Celtic team, I get it. What did Big Al see that turned him off on this Celtic team?
Now Kyrie is gone too, and we got off to a nice start. Yet still something is wrong with this team. It's undeniable that this Celtic team on offense is predictable. It's no secret... the TV analysts see it and routinely comment on it. They half-heartedly run their weave and pick and roll offense while what's really on their mind is personal gratification. They don't honestly look for each other. This Celtic offense while talented, is rudderless. When no one player has a hot hand they severally struggle to assist each other.
What I'm saying is, maybe what Al saw and what Kyrie saw is still on this team. We have players who have deemed themselves as stars that play with blinders on and with undeserved egos.
