Tomorrow starts Celtics training camp and fans of all shapes and sizes are starting to get excited. Most people have kept an ear to the ground this offseason and are well aware of all the moves Danny Ainge has pulled off to make this team look the way it does. A small select few out there completely missed the boat on all this news. One such fan is my buddy Flynn.
Flynn reached such a level of despair after Game 7, he forgot what a basketball was this summer.
Now before you all go crazy and chase him out of Boston like he’s Frankenstein’s monster, there are a few things you have to know. Flynn was a little busy this summer. He ran a very successful summer camp in our hometown, he was taking extra courses to finish up his degree, and he became a certified EMT- which is not easy for a reason.
At any rate, with all the media buzz around the area today, even Flynn caught wind of everything that has happened this summer and decided to send me an email. Oh, and did I mention he’s hilarious?
The following has been edited for your safety and sanity:
As you can see, everyone is excited for this season. The Celtics, on paper, are stacked and training camp starts tomorrow. This means that we actually get to find out what this team is made of aside from how Shaq describes their pickup games.
Flynn’s letter proves three things: 1) he really hasn’t been paying attention this offseason; 2) he hasn’t read this blog at all; and 3) the NBA is back.
So, thanks Flynn.
And for the record: Brian Scalabrine is in training camp with the Chicago Bulls and Luke Harangody and Semih Erden are white- not that I see color.
