RE: Walton still trippin
Walton says the Celtic brass are pathetic and have not improved the team
since '86 and he is out of his mind?
Then call me crazy too.
The truth is no significant free agent even considers Boston year in and
year out and has not in at least 15 years.
Still dreaming we can make a few moves and Hunter, Perkins and Banks turn
out to be diamonds in the rough before we trade them or they leave!

Don't be sorry--it's not your fault. Certainly, the comments of a select
few need not categorize anywhere near the entirety of the online Celtics
experience. Like Larry Niven once famously commented, "99% of everything
is crap"--and that was long before the internet as we know it today!! :>))
Just have fun. Life's too short to live it any other way.

That's the thing about a community of individuals, online or off--we all
have a different take on the Celtics, players, coaches, ownership, past,
present, and future. After all, it'd hardly be interesting if we all had
absolutely identical views of everything-- not to mention totally pointless
in having an messageboard in that case.
I, for one, welcome your views on Bill Walton. thanks for posting!
