Some of us are optimistic the Celtics will get their sh*t together and turn on the jets... eventually. They can't be this bad for the duration of the season, can they?
The Cs are 4-8. Twelve games represents 18% of a 66 game season. That's a decent sample.
Here are some ugly numbers:
Have two fewer wins than the Cavaliers
One more win than New Orleans
Are one of 10 teams to have a losing record at home
Their 89.1 ppg is the 5th worst in the NBA
Rank 28th in rebounds per game
Rank 27th in steals per game
Rank 19th in turnovers forced per game
Rank 22nd in turnovers per game
Rank 3rd in technical fouls per game
Paul Pierce is shooting a career low 39%
Kevin Garnett is shooting a career low 46%

Kevin Garnett and the majority of the Boston Celtics have looked old, slow and stuck in cement for the majority of the season. That shouldn't come as a major surprise to anyone watching the games since the Celtics actually are old and slow. It just seems to be that people are in denial about how old and slow this team actually is and continue to blame this season's issues...
The answer to that question, regarding the Boston Celtics and their "Big Three" as they stumble out the gate this season with a 4-8 record, is I guess, yeah, possibly. While I personally didn't think we'd be engaging in this type of conversation at all this season, or at least not this early, I suppose it is fair to begin speculating on whether or not Danny Ainge...
Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge used the brief window following the end of the NBA lockout to feverishly prepare for one final championship run with the aging Big Three.
Last time Kendrick Perkins met Kevin Garnett and the rest of the Celtics team on the court we were a serious contender. We had beaten the Lakers, the Heat and were having quite a successful season.
