The Boston Celtics have completed a rather despicable first half of the 2012-13 season. In a year filled with lofty expectations, the Celtics have hovered around .500 for the entirety of the first three months, demonstrating flashes of dominance but also blazes of absolute futility.
We can all pick which player we want to point our finger of blame at, but the reality is that there is more than one Celtic who is responsible for the ballclub's struggles. In fact, there are a few of them.
Boston is obviously an experienced team that has been through rough stretches over the years and always seems to land on its feet, so there is no reason why we can't expect the club to do that again this time around.
However, if that is going to happen, certain guys are going to need to step up. Just because a player may have an illustrious body of work does not mean that they are exempt from criticism.
