The future is bright, especially with our point guard.

id like to start by saying how proud i am of this Celtics team. what they went through, with all the injuries and what not, being one game away from the NBA Finals is a great accomplishment. it looks to be the end of the big 3, thanks for the title, i think we all know that without key injuries we could have had 1 or 2 more.
On to the future. alot of people arent excited, but when i look at it, i am VERY excited. I think we showed the league something this season, we showed how great our fans our, how great our coach is, how we are a fight-to-the-end kind of team. i expect free agents will once again want to come to Boston, especially now that they have a chance to be a significant piece of the future with the Big 3 gone. they have the great coach to play for, and the Point Guard.
Rondo was greatly scrutinized this season, and some of it was justified, but this guy REALLY stepped into his own, especially in the postseason. his playoff performance was special, and we saw him mature b4 our eyes. he def had some hiccups (atlanta game 1), but overall, we saw him play and act like a player that knew he was taking the reigns. his interviews and his play. he has a jumper, and wen engaged can hit his free throws. his 4th qtr effectiveness can no longer be questioned. and hes SO smart, bball iq is off the charts. players wanna play with this guy.
i will go as far to say, and i might be killed for this, that if Dwight Howard wouldnt have waved his rights, we would have had a better than good chance of landing him this summer.
im gunna enjoy watching Danny's approach to rebuilding this team, to grabbing guys to run with the new man in town, Rajon Rondo.
