Paul Pierce posted this photo on his facebook page with the title: "#18 Begins in the Off-Season." I don't think it was by accident that he included the plaque on the wall in the photo. It says
What hurts more, The pain of hard work or the pain of regret?
Winning a championship does begin in the offseason. It begins with the moves made by the GM and continues with the work by each player to get himself into the best possible condition for the season to start. Danny did his part and has built a deep team. Now, it's great to see posts like this and tweets like this:
“@dchristmas22: Another good day of work in wit my boys @fabpmelo and @jared_sully0 ...We Working #celticnation” we on it Brah.

The rookies are working hard. I have no doubt that Pierce and KG are working hard. Jason Terry is all fired up and working hard as are Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox. I'm sure Rondo is working.  These guys don't want to have any regrets after this season.  Banner 18 is on its way!    I can't wait for the season to start!!
