Media Day!

Post by bobheckler on Mon Sep 24, 2018 6:28 am

Well, it's here.  Everybody puts on their jerseys and smiles for the cameras.  A lot of predictable stuff is going to be said today and that's ok because, what is also predictable, is that tomorrow is the first day of camp, the first day of our march to #18. Considering we were one quarter and bad games from Rozier and Brown, and now we have Kyrie and Gordon back, and Tatum has a lot of seasoning for a sophomore and LeBron is gone we are VERY well positioned.

Greetings from Windhoek, Namibia.  GO CELTICS!!
