What a run!
Thank you for a wonderful five year run. It was heart breaking at times, but equally rewarding at other times. For those who don’t return, it was a pleasure having you in green and you will always be a CELTIC! But hey, maybe Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett will re-sign with the one and the only Boston Celtics to pursue Banner #18 in 2012-2013…Only time will tell.
