Here's what Antoine Walker had to say about the Celtics' offseason moves:
''When you win the division, you try to move up and keep battling and try to get to that next level," said Walker. ''But they chose to go the other route and go young and start from the ground up again. It's an odd situation. I don't really understand it. Maybe, in a couple years from now, we'll understand the madness to it."
Antoine, winning the weak Atlantic Division last season means absolutely nothing. Seeing you and Pierce being outplayed by Indiana, with injured, suspended, and old players, means much more. The Celtics are "going young," because they know their "veteran leaders" aren't going to take them anywhere beyond a second round loss in the playoffs.
