Not every NBA franchise is lucky to have an ownership group that seems to get it. Boston can count itself as one of the few that does. Over the last few weeks, owner Wyc Grousbeck has been vocal and optimistic about the future of the Celtics. From trading shots with Kings owner Vivek Ranadive about who exactly is tanking, to declaring interest in Andrew Wiggins, Grousbeck is doing exactly what every owner should- keeping his finger on the pulse of the fan base.
In speaking with the Boston Globe earlier this week, Grousbeck was optimistic about the short term future of team and said that come this off-season, there is some big potential for fireworks.
"I’ve got confidence that with all these picks and these young guys and our willingness to spend money that we can get there," he said. "We’re a patient group. We will take a multiyear plan if that’s what it takes. But I think this June there could be some fireworks. I think this June we’ve got so many pieces to this puzzle that we might be able to shake loose a real piece or two for this team going forward. So, I’m hoping it’s sooner rather than later."
With only a few weeks to go until the end of the regular season it won’t be long until the actual plans start falling into place.
