    2008 NBA Champs!

    Thought with the big trade we should have a thread on Boston's season.


    Rondo and the big three will make for this team to beat in the East this year.

    I don't really think so at all.....a group of big name veterans that won't pan out looks good now but hows it going to play out 50 games in?

    Let's ask the Miami Heat how it all worked out for them.

    I'm not saying that Boston is going to win an NBA title, but they will represent the East when the finals come around in June, barring any injuries.

    I am 35 years old so I can remember watching the great Celtic teams of the 80's with Bird, McHale and Parrish and they have had some terrible luck (Len Bias....Reggie Lewis.....missing out on Tim Duncan) and some terrible management getting a player like Garnett, well it leaves me with at least hope we will be in the playoffs next year......Although the NBA will not admit it, it has missed a playoff team from Boston for quite some time, it is a major market and with some other major market teams struggling like LA, New York and Phily....well it will help.

    I posted this in the KG Trade thread but I'll post here as well:

    This lineup looks good on paper but Boston will be a 4-5 seed playoff team that doesn't materialize like people are thinking right now......Do people out there really understand what type of player Paul Pierce is? This guy will still take as many shots, and still play a lazy offensive game that consists of pull-up jumpers and other really bad shots

    I laughed out loud today at Steven A Smith, who on ESPN Radio said "this team will now just run you out of the gym".....Does he not realize Paul Pierce and Ray Allen are over 30 and moving out of their KG doesn't exactly remind me of an Amare Stoudamire getting up and down the court at this point....even if they are good, it isn't going to be a "run you out of the gyn" mentality but that's another discussion for how bad Steven A is.

    I'm just not seeing it....if you added another piece to KG and Ray Allen outside of a selfish player like Paul Pierce I would probably see it, but this just isn't going to work.....all Boston needs to do now is trade for Gary Peyton, and get Karl Malone to come out of retirement to fill out the line-up
  8. agree though with the exception of the bird/magic and jordan eras the nba has been the outside of the major sports (football and baseball) with baseball on an obvious slide (more documented with african americans than kids theses days in general) the nba has realized this. good big market teams are good for professional sports. two reasons, a lot of people live in big markets and it gives everyone else someone to hate/despise/ root against...

    Team to beat? :slappy:

    3 aging stars can't win a title. Never has, never will. But keep dreaming...

    The comparison to the Heat a few posts ago is rather idiotic considering the Heat were lead by Wade, a superstar in his prime. there is nobody of his caliber on this Celtic team.

    I'm selling. They'll be improved, but not the conference finals. Rondo hasn't done much yet. Their depth will be non-existant and their bench is going to be weak.

    For the Celts fans, they'll be fun to watch, untill the playoffs. If Rivers rides the big three hard during the regular season, they'll peter out in the playoffs.

    This is an honest question. Who do the Celtics have at PF and C aside from Garnett?
