No East Coast Kids Saw This
are two minutes left in game four, and the Celtics are up by 4. The
Celtics have just overcome a 24-point deficit, on the road, for one of
the greatest comebacks in NBA Finals history. My 9 year-old son would
have loved to have seen this. Too bad the game started an hour after
his bedtime (though we let him stay up, and he made it through the
first quarter before passing out on the couch). A whole generation of
future Celtics fans is missing the creation of new Celtics legends —
even if they want to see it live. They’ll have to settle for the highlights on Sports Center
tomorrow. I know it’s a business. I know that’s why the games start so
late (9:00pm) and end so late (11:45pm). I get it. That doesn’t mean it’s not a real shame, though.
