In response to hops29's comment:
How is getting to the ECF 3 times, the Finals twice and winning a championship in the last 6 years equal to irrelevancy? That's better than they had done for 20 years prior. Most teams never even sniff that type of run.
I'm not a huge fan of DA, I think he has missed out on A LOT of free agents over the years that would have helped the Celts immensly, (Posey, JR Smith, Kmart, Birdman, Dalembert, the list goes on), but to say that he has made them "Irrelevant" isn't a reality.
The owners were responsible for Posey leaving.
Not sure if JR Smith wanted to come to Boston in Feb. 2012. Avery Bradley and Ray Allen were the SGs, that meant JR Smith would just be 3rd string.
Birdman was amnestied by the Nuggets because he investigated for child porn.
It wasn't possible to sign Dalembert because the Celts didn't have the cap space.
Fierce - Wow! Great knowledge. I write in generalities, heart felt ones for the team, but still generalities, as I don't have this type of knowledge, or am too lazy to look it up. I am a Yankee Fan, but have been a Celt Fan since the mid 60's. I always enjoy the forum for the informed fans like yourself. Thanks.
Pertaining to Hops and making the team irrelevant. I also enjoy people willing to state a different opinion than mine. Causes refelction. I don't agree with the team being irrelevant, I do agree that help is needed. I didn't LOL, but I certainly chuckled in reading your response. Not asking you to agree, but I think that if several of us were in the same place physically as compared to just leaving messages, the passion for the Celts, and some g rated trash talking would be fun for everyone to engage in.
