Leadership Is The Key To Celtics Success in 2015/16

With five games into the 2015 NBA season Celtic fans have gotten a glimpse of Danny Ainge’s  two number one draft picks. Guards Terry Rozier and Georgia product RJ  Hunter are the two newest Celtics to wear the Celtic green. But the real question is which one will be the more successful in a Celtic uniform or if they will stay in a Celtic uniform.

Celtic fans know that GM Danny Ainge isin’t afraid to pull the trigger on any deal to make the Celtics better. We saw that with the departure of greats Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett not to mention Ray Allen. This is where the term professional comes in. It’s way to early for fans to judge Rozier and Hunter but Pierce and Garnet certainly left their mark in Boston sports.

Celtic fans have been spoiled over the years with great leaders such as Bird, Parrish and McHale. Antoine Walker was a decent leader in the mid nineties.But from 1997 on the Celtics were led by Paul Pierce and later Kevin Garnet and Ray Allen. The three teamed up to deliver us banner number 17.

This is where these new Celtics Olynyk, Sullenger and Zeller need to do. They must step it up and be examples for rookies such as Rozier and Hunter not to mention Jordan Mickey. Olynyk is having a decent early NBA career but doesn’t come close to Pierces persona. Neither does Sullenger or or Tyler Zeller. Garnet and Allen and Pierce were great in the clutch.

The Celtics have an energetic and sharp coach in Brad Stevens. But if the Celtics don’t show signs of maturity and start winning big playoff games it will only be a matter of time before the jury starts pointing fingers and start looking for a scapegoat.This is where the Celtic fans have been blessed by great players and coaching. Time will tell if banner number 18 is in sight.
