Boston Celtics and The NBA Draft....Old to the New
The Boston Celtics finally return to the promised land winning a NBA championship which was an amazing feat since last year they didn't even make the playoffs and only won 26 games out of 82 and on top of that their first championship since 1986!
The big story of this championship is that the 3 superstar veterans of this team, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen, have finally won their championship and Paul Pierce a 10-year veteran all with the Celtics made it through hard times to get to this point. The Celtics were not even a favorite to win this championship against the Los Angeles Lakers but proved the end result would be in their favor.
So now that the NBA season is over its time to bring in the new players with the NBA draft which is showcasing the top players from college basketball including Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley, OJ mayo, and Kevin Love who were all top players for their respective teams...My personal favorite player coming in is Derrick Rose and I'm excited to see where all the players end up. The draft is on thursday at 7et on espn.
