In posting the links the past few days, I've noticed that there hasn't been any Celtics news in the Boston media. The blogs still keep churning out posts, but as far as NESN, CSNNE, the Globe and Herald, we have entered that portion of the off season where we can go several days without any real news from the team. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, however. Instead of lamenting the fact that there are no Celtic stories in the main stream media today, I'm counting my blessings.
No headlines means that no Celtic has had a sudden, unexpected medical procedure or medical emergency.
There have been no bar fights involving any of our rookies or veterans and none have been arrested for illegal possession of a gun or for discharging a gun in public. .
Not a single Celtic was arrested driving at high speeds while under the influence and crashing his car.
We have not traded our future for a 38 year old point guard who will probably miss his old training staff more than anyone can imagine.
We didn't pay $10,000,000.00 per season for a center who averages 3 points per game or for a point guard who has played a total of 35 games.
We don't have a player who is threatening to hold out and refuse to play for our team this season if he doesn't get this or that.
In fact, we haven't even traded half our team for a one year rental for a pouting player who got his coach and GM fired and has so totally disrupted his old team that they may not recover.
Our owner has not been indicted for discriminatory housing practices or been charged as an accessory to sexual harassment.
Yes, no news is good news at this point in the off season.
