National Interest in Boston Celtics Waning?
Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce are all gone, and so too it appears is the national interest they brought the Celtics.
That blunt fact revealed itself in full when the team’s 2013-14 regular-season schedule was released Tuesday, an event without the hype that it commanded in prior years.
For the first time since 2007-08 season, the Celtics won’t play on Christmas Day, when the NBA showcases its headliners in heavyweight matchups.
And for the first time since the season before that, the Celtics won’t play in a game broadcast on TNT.
