I am excited to post this article today because I am going to include a poll in my Instagram story (@NinaLeeCarmo) and I love polls!!!
The Celtics have had a hard time in the last few weeks. They’ve only won one game out of six since the All-Star Break and the media has been all over their lack of team chemistry. I really think that at this point, they *should* be working toward securing a top-four seed in the playoffs, but right now they just want to wallow in self-pity. The media has been isolating Kyrie Irving’s quotes- calling him out most recently for his muttered “I won’t miss any of this” walking from the locker room to the game last week.
Tonight is the night the Celtics get it together and prove everyone wrong. Literally everyone is predicting that the West-leading Golden State Warriors will destroy them tonight. However, here at SAFV, we (or maybe just I) predict nonsense by just speaking it into existence… hoping it works?
The Celtics CAN and WILL put the drama aside and blossom miraculously into the team we love that made them Eastern Conference Finalists.
Secondly, I am sure that both teams will come out and play a good game of basketball.
Finally, to rearrange journalist Albert Burneko’s thoughts from his article this morning:
My friends, I ask you to join me in calling upon the mighty Warriors to rain death and destruction upon the puny Irishmen.
I say OPTIMISTICALLY:
My friends, I ask you to join me in calling upon the BOSTON CELTICS!!!!!!!!!!!!! to rain death and destruction upon the over-confident ugly Warriors.
