In Response to Re: How Far Will the Celtics Go? : So, what's in it for you? What if they don't go far in the playoffs? What will you offer up as collateral? What's your threat to be aimed at the tunnel-visioned believers in this team? Somewhere between the myopic, ignorant fans who think this team is the only one in the NBA, and the fans who "jump ship", lies reality. But those of us who are reasonably knowledgeable about this game
, and who are still supporters of this franchise, get sucked into the jet-engine of despair that threads like this one create. Just because we doubt that this team can win it all doesn't mean we've given up. But seriously, RR, the C's are in big time trouble if they don't get Shaq back. As in, they'll go out in the second round. Jeff Greene's offense does not make up for Perk's defense.

Thanks for sharing, Soups.
I'll take it that you haven't been around much lately and so don't understand why this thread was created, or else you misunderstand the thread. This thread does not create despair, but seeks to counteract the panic so prevalent last week on this board.
But I don't feel like explaining it for the umpteenth time.
I'm only one of the things you mentioned in your post, "reasonably knowledgeable about this game."
Still, I admire your turn of phrase, "sucked into the jet-engine of despair"
: that's a damn fine turn of phrase. But, please, show me where I advocate for despair.
Again, thanks for sharing. I hope you feel better.Go Celts!
