Remembering the Pitino Era

 

I was in college when the Celtics hired Rick Pitino, and I bought into the hype completely. This was the man who—with or without Tim Duncan—would restore the glory of my favorite franchise. I must have annoyed the hell out of all of my friends by constantly talking about the genius of Pitino over meals and card games. (Give me a break–I was 18 and optimistic).

More than a decade later, here’s how Adrian Wojnarowski sums up the Pitino era in an epic take down column in which Woj raises the possibility that Pitino pushed Louisville’s “assistant equipment manager” to marry the woman whom Pitino impregnated on a restaurant floor in 2003. (That equipment manager, by the way, was Pitino’s personal driver when he was with the Celtics, Woj says).

Woj: Privately, his employees called him King Leer (as well as “The Aging Prom Queen”) when he was with the Boston Celtics. He had a fiefdom of sham basketball minds and cronies who took over the Celtics and bombarded general manager Chris Wallace daily with insane and ill-informed trade proposals.

The Aging Prom Queen? Ow. Imagine how insane the trade proposals had to be for Chris Wallace to dismiss them out of hand?

    "Remembering the Pitino era"

    Why TF would we want to do that? Isn't that one of those memories best left buried and repressed deep in the subconscious?

    This is def an era I want to forget. I was the same age as you at the time and equally optimistic, however the mistakes made here were traumatizing and forced me to turn on my playstation and make my own celtics roster
