The IT curse is real 

Post#1 » by GoCeltics123 » Sat Nov 21, 2020 10:07 pm

Since we traded him, this franchise has had a never-ending string of bad luck. And no one wants to sign here.
The greatest movie bet of all time:

"I want the Celtics to cover, I want Celtics halftime, I want Garnett points and rebounds."

I lost the bet so I Hate Truth18

Excellent thread

What type of bad luck? Jeff Green's heart, KG's knee, Shaq's Achilles, Perks knee (?), JO's back (?), and Tony Allen's knee injury were ALL before IT4... all of them happened within the 8 years before IT4! Now, if it's "stars" leaving? IT4 being moved didn't make Al age and get paid a ridiculously stupid amount to lure him away (he got his money but I bet he still regrets it). Kyrie IS a curse but extremely talented! Hay, well that's good for us that Tatum and Brown improved so much. It isn't ideal that we lost Hayward financially but we didn't lose him on the court because he never played. We can only imagine his impact on the playoffs, of course we are going to lean (heavily) toward a good outcome for us but we don't really know.

Yeah, there may be a curse (nope :lol:) but it started long before IT4!

It sure does look bad, but curses don't exist.

Ok guys, you can lock this up. I was pissed off at the time lol

But to be fair, we've had an insane amount of bad luck on this team the last 2 decades

Not so sure about the IT curse, but I'm more convinced of the Hayward curse of the crooked jersey.

But, if we need to sacrifice IT on center court. I think he will do it.

I call this the Jae Crowder curse since he's the best player they traded away.

Since Avery Bradley is the one with the actual championship ring I think he has earned the honor of having a curse named after him.
