Hardwood Houdini readers, it is with a heavy heart that I officially declare the 2013-2014 Boston Celtics to be deceased. They were a hard-working bunch, one that over-achieved as much as a 57-loss team can make that claim, and they will be missed (though not by all). Ashes to ashes and dust to dust; this team has passed, and must needs be flushed.
But for those of you who fear that we here at HH are content to crawl up in a ball and spend the playoffs hiding under the covers, relax! Celtics fans we may be, but we’re also hoops enthusiasts, and we can’t just sit here idly as the NBA Playoffs kick off! I plan on covering the playoffs here and at some of the other FanSided sites, so either try and find me, or check back in with me here at Hardwood Houdini to read my musings and occasionally insightful comments, starting with my preview of the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
