Wait till next year, again
The Celtics have officially been eliminated from the playoffs, but my interest in them is greater now than it's been all year. The reason: Gerald Green. I'm now watching the Celtics just to watch him play. He's a tall natural scorer who can get his shot off anytime he wants, and he's already the best dunker the Celtics have ever had. Green will be a top ten player in the NBA within three years.
The last time I was this excited about a rookie's strong finish was when Sam Horn ended the season with a plethora of home runs.
