[QUOTE] Guys,if i was a fan of another team, i would be scared to death of the C's. We have 10 players who can score double figures in any given game. We are still the best defensive team in the league. Pierce looks better than he has in the last 3 years. KG is way ahead of last year, we have with out a doubt the best bench in the league, Ray looks as good as ever, Rondo is better than ever, and Baby is becoming a force. Shaq fits in perfectly, so far and i don't see that changing. I just don't see whats not to like about this years Celtic team.

10 players wgho can score in double figures in any given game......
wow.... really - they scored 88 last night against a team in disarray after playing all but 3 minutes of the preseason without their second best player. The Cs were about the 15th best offense in the league last year.
KG is ahead of last year - minus the 7 turnovers.
Rondo is better than ever if you continue to ignore the pressure that he places on his own team's offense by being simply the worst shooter in the league - Doc said after the finals that Rondo's inability to shoot really hurt them in the playoffs - confirmed by Coach K. 17 assists to 4 hall of famers.... wow - he may have fewer assists if he could shoot - like even an average point guard. He did nothing that just about every point guard in the league can do last night - oh and some of them can make wide open jumpers. How about 12 assists and making a few open jumpers like a normal point guard and not being a complete nonfactor at the offensive end of the floor.
55 wins - 3rd or 4th seed, tank a bunch of games to conserve minutes, play great defense and challenge for a title...... 10 guys who can score double figures any given night???? If it adds up to 88 on average who cares if there are 10 guys that can score 10 any given night.
Tonight they win by 25 and let the snow ball start rolling down the hill.
The best defensive team in the league? When push comes to shove, I think the Heat will be holding their opponents to the lowest scoring average and lowest shooting %.
Don't get me wrong the Cs are right there and will most likely contend for a title if healthy but picture the Cs of 2 years ago when they brought 3 30somethings together..... the Heat have brought together 3 players whose average age is 5 years younger and none of the 3 the Cs brought together are as good as the 3 Miami has put together except Bosh who is completely overlooked in this scenario - he has not been an all-star every year he has been in the league for no reason. When they integrate a healthy Wade, they are going to steam roll.
