In response to cabutan's comment:
every year, EVERY YEAR, we see either trolls or "true" C's fans coming here and professing a Celtics early exit in the playoffs just to be wrong..wait till the playoffs come..it is a wait and see..I never count my team off..
I found Billi's post quite accurate and I am a dieheart Celtic fan going back to the Cousy/Sharman days. Only thing I disagree with is that we are & have been a jump shooting team since Perk got hurt in game 6 vs LA 2 years ago. Difference was we had Ray Allen & PP won the 3 pt shooting contest 2 years ago. Problem now is we are a lousy 3 pt shooting team except for PP and Terry occasionally. And he's right, only Green can drive to the basket. Rondo used to but he's out. The only thing consistent about our team these days is its inconsistency.
The Lakers too, except for Kobe & maybe Nash, are a lousy 3 pt shooting team but difference is that Howard & Gasol usually give them 10+ rebs aka 2nd chances. We do not have this rebounding edge luxury. And the reason that they may not even make the 8th seed and I hope not is that other than Miami, in the West OKC, Spurs, Denver & LAC are better, I think, than any of our other East Coast teams.
We needed to do a deal maybe trading Rondo for Cousins and then get Evans and, I'd been happy too with KG getting another ring perhaps with LAC( they won't w/o him) and us getting Bledsoe & Jordan. OK, hope for the draft. We need a couple of 6'10', 11'" or 7 footers.
