The history of the Boston Celtics is rich and full of glory, and the 2013-14's dreadful result should not put a damper on what this team is really about.
One of the many respected Celtics writers in Boston, Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, took the time to discuss topics on the Celtics, including Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge's track record, the chances of landing that "magnetic" player and the highly qualified and respected Stevens.
The Celtics have quite the offseason ahead and can go with young, valuable chips like Jared Sullinger, Jeff Green, Rajon Rondo, etc. as well as future first-round selections. Bulpett hints that the Celtics need an impact figure that can cause some friction on the hardwood.
"This team needs one of those magnetic players," Bulpett said.
One of those magnetic players can be consumed in the draft or via free agency. An impressive college star in Kansas' Andrew Wiggins and Duke's Jabari Parker would fill that need, but another big move would really gain some leverage, as Bulpett alludes to.
"Great players are what makes great teams," Bulpett added.
The coach leading the Celtics is a first-year coach. But don't get it twisted, Stevens acknowledged what he was getting into converting to a professional coach when he elected to join the Celtics as the new man in charged along the sidelines -- which is the number of banners, recent sucess and established NBA stars.
"He's respecting the ground here," Bulpett said.
