This is interesting. I understand that each time a person remembers something, that memory is rewritten, influenced by that persons biases and prejudices, meaning the more you think about past events the more distorted to your own reality your memories become.
This means that my blind/loyal, optimistic, apologist who is happy with small victories attitude toward the Celtics may have tainted my view of the last four years. We may, in fact, have never been considered a contender!
So I did a quick search (duck duck go, but you can use google if you don't value your privacy) of "celtics favorite to win it all" and these two links from just a few months ago popped up.
I felt better immediately about my flawed memory, at least in this case.
I did say "I have never heard"
So congrats on your memory being intact.
Doesn't change anything about the main point. No finals in 10+ years. 1 Title in 34. and massively wasting many opportunities to get better.
