As we continually mark the days off our calendars, the effervescent feeling that is abundant when Boston Celtics basketball is being played gets closer and closer to colliding once again with our hearts.
Going on three months and counting since we last saw the shamrocks take to the hardwood, fans of the organization have been champing at the bit just waiting to receive news on when they may be able to see their favorite NBA team play once again.
