With New Year’s Day finally upon us, it’s the perfect time for Sir Charles In Charge to release each team’s New Year’s Resolutions.
Editors note: This post is written with snark and was put together at 4 a.m. after I had one too many root beer’s. Enjoy.
Atlanta Hawks – Overcome the loss of Al Horford.
Boston Celtics – Find a way to keep Rajon Rondo and/or figure out a way to get Brad Stevens to properly tank.
