Good morning, Hardwood Houdini faithful!
Times are tough if you are a Boston Celtics fan – do we hope that Rajon Rondo’s return will spark a winning streak, or do we cross our fingers and hope that losing results in a fantastic draft pick? Personally, I find it hard to hope that the Celtics will continue losing; I just cannot associate this franchise with tanking. Still, it has become pretty obvious that this roster has some serious deficiencies, so as long as Danny Ainge continues to tell Brad Stevens to play these guys, the Boston Celtics are going to continue to slide down the standings.
Frustrating? Sure? To take your mind off of that, then, I present the daily links! Small consolation, I know.
