Celtics 2013-14: Preparing For The Future, Practicing For The Present

 "It's been a long time...I shouldn't of left you..."
-- Rakim, I Know You Got Soul
With THAT said, what more can be said about the Celtics struggles in these larval stages of the 2013-14 NBA season?

I'm reading/hearing a lot from folks about how upset they are about the losses that are starting to pile up with this team. Now, granted, most of these people are not hardcore fans because, if they were, they'd know that our C's are in the midst of a rebuild and wins really aren't the point this season.

Still, for all you Negative Nellies and Debbie Downers out was stated in the previous post, it's all about the development of young players, the polishing of assets and hunkering down for the future where glory awaits.

Watching Jeff Green, Jared Sullinger, Kelly Olynyk, Vitor Faverani, Jordan Crawford, MarShon Brooks and the rest improve and make strides together as a team is actually kind of exciting...just read this great article by MassLive's Jay King if you don't believe me.

These guys will learn how to close out games...their hard work will extend over 48 minutes and we'll get our first win of the Brad Stevens Era. In fact, I think we stand a good shot of getting it against Utah.

In the meantime, let's just sit back and enjoy watching these guys find themselves and before you know it, they'll start putting together a couple of wins.

Here and there.

On occasion.
