Another gem shared by CelticsLife poster "Reggielewis35," highlighting the 1988 Celtics. These were pull-outs from the Boston Globe. We've lamented the 1987 Celtics a lot around here. The '88 Celtics were a really good team but similar to 1987, their bench didn't have enough firepower. The 5 you see above is really all they could count on. Maybe because this guy was a key component of their bench:
The difference between 88 and 87 is I feel that KC Jones should've used Reggie Lewis more, even as a rookie. I was very optimistic Jim Paxson was the missing piece, when acquired for Jerry Sichting. Still surprised looking back on it he didn't mesh the way I thought he would. Of course missing out on Antoine Carr also could've made the difference, no offense to Brad Lohaus pictured above.
Each day in August, Celticslife will post a Celtics-related picture, one you may possibly have never even seen before. tb727 8/25/2015 03:00:00 PM Tweet Edit
