I'm heartbroken because my team, my boys, my heroes, The Boston Celtics announced that Rajon Rondo (the MVP of the team, obviously) suffered an ACL. To the non sports fans, an ACL is a very serious knee injury and it puts you in the sidelines for a year. That means the Celtics' most valuable player is gone for the remainder of the season and half of next season.
Mind you that I woke up earlier today to check on the results of the MIAMI-BOSTON game that started at 2:00am in the morning. I woke up to the news that Rondo had an ACL.
Season over. That's it for him.
What's bothering me more is that this puts Danny Ainge, the Celtics General Manager, into a major dilemma. Will this make Ainge disband my team? Will he trade The Truth and The Big Ticket?
I've said it before and I'll say it again. I LOVE MY CELTICS. I am emotionally attached to this particular era. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Doc Rivers, and yes, even Ray Allen. The 2008 championship was the sweetest and I felt for them in 2010. (Laker fans, that was supposed to be ours)
Every time they win is pure bliss and every time they lose is hell... But today, it's not just about Rondo getting injured. Today might be the beginning of the end of the Paul Pierce-KG era. I told some NBA friends that I'm really gonna tear up when that day comes. I love those guys. I love them Celts...
Being a Celtic fan means you have to accept that Celtic Mystique... It's weird but it's part of the Celtics... Just like what the Red Sox had with the "curse of the bambino".
I'm still going to cheer for the Celtics this season and the season after and so on. I don't follow players. I stick to my team. CELTICS!!!
Let's see what happens for the remainder of the season. But my request to Danny Ainge. Please make Paul and KG stay...
