The coaching camp begins on the finish of the month. For the blokes from Crew USA, their summer season overseas is coming to an finish. Gordon Hayward and the recruits are already trailing across the new Celtics coaching heart. Within the coming weeks, the remainder of the crew (and camp visitors) will journey to Boston Touchdown.
All of it begins with Media Day, which is nice for quotes and photograph shoots, however the floor motion doesn’t start in earnest till the pre-match crew's first match on October sixth.
Till then, we merely scattered ideas, chatter and swarms of reports from the crew. Oh sure, and filled with previews! We're going to begin deploying preview content material very quickly on CelticsBlog I assume you’ll be able to learn previews elsewhere as effectively, however I can prevent hassle. Right here's how they are going to go:
One thing extraordinary about the truth that final season was an enormous disappointment.
Blows to the outgoing chief who shouldn’t be named.
Steal the enjoyment by evaluating it to the brand new chief.
Lament to Al Horford depart (forgetting every part about Mook and Baynes).
Photographs of Terry Rozier's new contract in Charlotte.
Recount evening recap with extra consideration to Tacko Fall than Romeo Langford.
Query marks surrounding Gordon Hayward's "return to type".
Some labels of "Tatum and Brown should make the bounce this 12 months."
Dramatic and obscure feedback on how Brad Stevens has to show himself.
Wrapped with a pat on the pinnacle and despatched to mattress with a glass of water and a prediction of exit of the 2nd spherical.
All proper. I might elaborate on every of those themes for my insights. It actually hurts me to know what's coming (for probably the most half). And if the final faculty 12 months has taught us something, it’s that none of it actually issues. I don’t imply that within the existential manner of the third eye. It's simply that predictions imply nothing as a result of life is random and issues change in a single day within the NBA.
If you happen to perceive that previews matter little, you free your self to have enjoyable with them. We’ll be sure you delve into particulars that solely Celtics fanatics like us could be interested by. Who will get 15th place within the lineup? How will the rotation of the nice man be solved? Which of the rookies is able to contribute from the beginning and who will find yourself being the perfect of the pack? Is Semi Ojeleye prepared for an even bigger function or will he proceed to punish healers as a substitute of opposing energy?
Then there shall be checklist transactions, a ultimate name to Jaylen Brown's extension talks, and doubtless some industrial rumors only for a kick. Muscular watch. Gordon Hayward's Aggression Watch. Tacko watch! Carsen Edwards loses 30 video games in preseason!
I have no idea about you, however I cannot wait. I put my backpack, a brand new pencil field and a brand new sharp outfit. Again to high school cannot occur quickly sufficient.
