Boston Celtics get stamps of disapproval

Back in the 1985-86 basketball season, Larry Bird led the 67-15 Boston Celtics to the NBA championship, the last time the Green won it all. That team was one of the greatest in the history of the game, but they were never honored, at least not at the peak of their powers, with appearances on U.S. postage stamps—unlike the current Celtics team, which apparently merits a promotional set despite occupying last place with just 23 wins so far  (versus 50 losses). Maybe the P.O.’s damning the team with faint praise: Does anyone still mail letters?
