You remember June 17th, 2008. The night when the C’s won Banner 17. You were either at the game, watching it on TV, or listening to it on the radio and you felt something inside of you. And that something is still inside of you and it is inside of the Celtic players too. That something was the magic you felt when you heard of the trades for Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett and all the way to the raising of the Banner.

But somewhere during last season it got lost. Not only in you, but also in the Celtic players. It was probably when KG got injured, or when we lost to the Lakers on our home court but nobody knows. I believe that the return of KG and the lessons we have learned through all the suffering we went through last year will bring a return to the magic. But one can only hope. Here’s to us Celtic Fans and the C’s themselves getting back the magic of Banner 17 and having it help lead us to Banner Number 18!

    I usually don't complain about refs since I figure it all evens itself out. But that Laker game in Boston last year was one of the poorest officiated games I've seen the past 2 seasons

    Yeah... That game was pretty bad. That was the most obvious foul I ever saw by Derek Fisher on rays game ending three.

  4. I think the Celtics will have that feeling back this season. Just as they did in 2007, the majority of the players are already in Boston working out. KG will be really motivated after missing so much time last season. Also, just as in 2007 we have added a key veteran. They tasted defeat last season and they didn't like it and will be motivated to get that winning feeling back. I certainly have te magic feeling! I can't wait for the season to begin!

    As for the refs, they were terrible all year and it seemed as though they had a vendetta going against the Celtics. Maybe this season they will be going after the Lakers. I really get mad at how the refs favor certain players and teams. Like how in the world does Lebron only average 1 foul a game? Ridiculous.

    Yeah plus the call to foul KG out of that game after Fisher fouled him to get the ball. That was crazy

    After the Christmas Day game, there was a long stretch of bad officiating...Ray fouled out in the third quarter of the warriors game, and then the six guys on the court at the blazers game. That really killed the magic for me.

    But also the fact that the C's came out way too cocky like they had already won it for that year...I got really tired of hearing the "Well we're still the champs" excuse.
