It’s no secret that the Boston Celtics are off to a rough start this season. The Big Three comprised of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett has slowed down significantly, and an injury to Rajon Rondo makes the Celtics one of the least effective offensive teams in the league. These factors have combined to give Boston an uninspiring record of five wins and nine losses.
Despite all of this, the newest member of the Celtics, Brandon Bass, insists everybody is just overreacting.
“We’ve just got to keep winning, and y’all are going to have less and less questions to ask,” Bass told the National Post.
“You know what I mean? For real. Y’all are going to be asking me, ‘What do you think about Ray’s jumpshot? What do you think about [Rajon] Rondo’s passing? Doc [Rivers] is a hell of a coach. He’s amazing.’ That’s what y’all are going to be saying soon,” the newly acquired power-forward added.
While Danny Ainge has at least hinted at the idea of “blowing up” the team to rebuild for the future, there are at least a few guys in the locker room that still believe they can right the ship and compete in the playoffs.
