Miss the old days of watching Celtics playoff basketball into June year after year after year, mostly thanks to Mr. Larry Bird.

ICYMI: The full E:60 piece on David Price. No wonder he stunk early, he had non-stop media and promotional commitments for months on end because he came to Boston.
Have a great Sunday.
