Bests & Worsts of the Celtics season
Danny Ainge didn't quite take a sledgehammer to the Celtics roster this past season, but this roster was indeed a fixer-upper all season.
At 25-57, they lost more than twice as many games as they won.
But every now and then they reminded us that on any given night or even two - Yes, I'm talking about you, Miami! - any team can get smacked around and beaten.
Still, as the season dragged on, the Celtics sunk deeper and deeper into this basketball abyss known as the Eastern Conference.
And yet even in the darkness that defeat brings on, the Celtics could clearly see a glimmer of light ahead.
It's called the NBA draft.
And the Celtics have a chance - like a 10.3 percent chance, which isn't great but doesn't totally suck eithe - of landing the best player in the land who will likely be plucked from this draft's Big Three of Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid.
But before we get too giddy about the draft and all the possibilities awaiting the Celtics next season, let's take a moment to reflect on the best and worst from this past season, with the former hopefully serving as the foundation for future success ... like next season!
