With the weather near 50 degrees Fahrenheit and the sun shining, March appeared to be ‘going out like a lamb’ as they say.

But on this, the last day of March, the lions are eating the Celtics.

Kevin Garnett has been shut down indefinitely by the Boston Celtics.

Coach Doc Rivers said that this will probably not last until the end of the regular season.  “He’ll probably play by the end, last couple of games,” the coach told reporters on Tuesday afternoon.

The concerns are many for Celtics fans.  Will KG be ready for the playoffs?  If so, will he be 100 percent?

But the worst part is that the same fans asking those questions can answer other ones without any help:

Can we repeat without him?  No.

What will a second-round playoff series look like without him?  Tell you if we get there.  Big if.

Hopefully these questions are moot.  But without Garnett, anything will not be possible.
