Shank rides again

The venom and disdain drips from every word.
In the weeks after Christmas the Celtics became a wounded and unlikable band of underachievers. They were big on attitude, small on work ethic. Impressed with past achievements, convinced they could summon the old dominance any time they pleased, they blew 10 double-digit leads. They became the kind of team we scorn here in Boston. Now they are in the process of trying to earn our love again.
The Curly-Haired Assassin rides again.

Meanwhile, Celtics beat reporter Gary Washburn, who has been unflinchingly honest in his assessments of the team during his rookie season on the beat weighs in thusly on the deal that moved Eddie House to New York in exchange for Nate Robinson.
It may take Nate Robinson 30 seconds, maybe a minute, to become a fan favorite at TD Garden. Boston fans adore players who maximize their talent and relish the dramatic and critical moments.
He reports. Shank decides.
