I have a close friend from Boston who now lives in Houston. He records the games and watches them condensed to about 45 minutes. The thing is I cannot comment to him until he gives me the all clear! Thing is I know he has watched game 7 but will grieve for a few days before he can even make a remark about it. I hope for you Terry, that writing about it is therapeutic!

Hi John. I can empathize with your friend. Watching one of your favorite teams lose is heartbreaking. Yes, writing about the troubled Celts is therapeutic. As I said at one point, I needed to “unburden myself!”

Wow Celtic fans are so priveliged... Your team loses in the NBA final, then loses their head coach prior to the next season starting, and then makes it to the Conference finals, and the response is to fire coach, and break up the team. I can't imagine what your thoughts would be if you were a Detroit Pistons fans.:)

Hah. To be clear, I'm not suggesting "breaking up the team," but the C's do have needs that demand to be met and I have listed some of them in the column. I do think the young Joe Mazzulla needs to be replaced, as it is clear that his team was out-coached during this series and the one before it (vs Philadelphia). As for the current Pistons, they make me long for the days of Rick Mahorn and Bill Laimbeer! Thanks for reading, George.
