They're Ba a a a ck!
It seems to me that it took forever to get here, but basketball season is starting again! And even though my favorite NBA team traded away 3 of my favorite loves (Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry), I don't think I'll have trouble finding new heart throbs!
Last night the Boston Celtics beat the New York Knicks by 30 points in a pre-season game, True, most of New York's starters were taking a night off to rest, but the Celts were playing without Rajon Rondo, who's still recovering from a torn ACL, and veteran Gerald Wallace, who was also taking a rest break.
Six of the Celtics scored in double figures, which shows how totally unselfish they are as a team. Brandon Bass, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green, Jordan Crawford, Courtney Lee, and Jared Sullinger are back, and there are all kinds of new additions to the fold.
I am so happy to be able to watch basketball again! Oh, I watch my grandsons play soccer, and I follow the Boston Red Sox in baseball, but neither come close to my love of basketball and the Boston Celtics!
Spoiler alert: Be aware that I'll probably be yapping about it while the season goes on!
