In response to romneywins' comment:
With the current roster the Boston Celtics will compete and make a run this year. Rondo, Green, Ko, Sullenger, and one of the shooters, are an excellent start back to the playoffs. Everyone is forgetting about Green, the guy played very well last year in the playoffs. Rondo is a star. Sullinger and KO are a very interesting combination, and will produce points and will spread the floor, the guys are young but good. Our Bench as Now Constituted is one of the better if not the best bench in the NBA. We now have a real coach who will not let good players rot on the bench. Pressey appears to be the best backup point guard we have had in quiet a while. This guy , the indestructable man, can at least add toughness and rebounding and a few points. All we lost was three aging stars that are over the hill, as far as carrying a team in the regular season. I don't know what kind of a playoff team we will be but WE SHOULD BE COMPETATIVE DURING THE REGULAR SEASON , and who could ask for more during our first year without the big three. There is little doubt that at this time we are a better regular season team than we were last year if Rondo plays.
Best bench in the NBA??????????????
Pressey, Crawford, Brooks, Bogans, Lee, Wallace, Humpcrap, Fav, Fab, Olynyk?????
That may be one of the WORST benches in the NBA. Pressey hasn't proven a thing, Crawford and Brooks are both incredibly unreliable and notorious for taking terrible shots, Bogans is old and has never been a high level player, Lee, Wallace, and Hump are all coming off terrible years, Fav who knows, but his biggest knock is that he is really lazy, Fab is terrible, Olynyk is a bright spot but still a rookie with question marks.
Plus KG had one of the highest +/- stats in the league last year! Paul dragged that team through the whole second half of the season on his back.
You may not like KG or Paul, but to say they were dragging the team down is a falsity.
