Owner: Celtics were ‘one of the hardest teams to love’

Celtics governor Wyc Grousbeck admits this season was not fun in Boston.

When it came to the 2018-19 Boston Celtics, looks were not deceiving, it turns out.

Wyc Grousbeck, co-owner and governor of the Celtics, says there was a “gap” between the talent level in Boston and what was on display for all eyes to see when it came to actually playing the game.

Appearing one 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Felger and Mazz show, this season’s Celtics were “one of the hardest teams to love.”

“We’re all annoyed and upset and disappointed,” Grousbeck said. “I feel like there was a mismatch between the talent that we had on paper and the way that it was expressed on the court. The actual and the potential, there was a gap.”

That “gap” made this season a “tough year for everybody concerned.”

“It was one of the hardest teams to love from my standpoint,” he said.

Grousbeck made it clear, the Celtics will be busy this summer.

“We’re really just going to go through the roster, the 15 guys, and say who’s here, should we move some of the guys, should we re-sign these people, what are we going to do?” Grousbeck said. “It’s really like a new movie, with a new script, and in some cases a new cast. And hopefully, a new ending.”
