Remember those heady days a couple of weeks ago when we were optimistic that the level heads would prevail and it seemed like the entire season could be salvaged? Ahhh, the naiveté of youth.
Such as Celtics sharp shooter Ray Allen yesterday speaking at his alma mater — the University of Connecticut, what you forgot his 1995 run to the Elite 8? — saying he would be willing to give up an entire season to get a fair deal.
That is saying something — Allen doesn’t have a lot of seasons left, and the Celtics championship window is about to close. This is not a team that can afford a year off. Yet Allen is willing to talk about it.
I’m trying to be optimistic people, but it is hard. Very hard.
