i think they have a really good shot at NBA finals.
spurs would beat them
mavs would be a really good series... toss up though.
rockets would lose. KG owns Yao.
Suns no idea. they wont make it to finals.

Beer, baked beans, and clam chowder will be phenomenally worse for KG than the beer and maple syrup he got in Minnesota. He'll gain 60 lbs and will be sick all day long. I bet at some point he gets arrested or groped at the Kennedy compound. Ray Allen will know enough to stay away from that crap, but he and Paul Pierce can't carry a team past the 2nd round.

well, really, I think barring personality clashes (and these three can stick together for at least one season), they'll cruise to the finals where they will be crushed by San Antonio or beaten by the Mavs (barring a Mavs playoffs collapse). A healthy Phoenix would beat them, but I don't think Nash will last through an entire playoff run without sweeping a couple series early.

Their 3 all-stars just happen to be class acts... lucky bastards. I don't see any ego problems since all of them just want a ring by any means necessary. I think they will lose in the finals to whoever comes out of the west (Mavs, Spurs, Suns, Rockets), but who knows... when the season starts we may see reason to be very concerned.

They have star power, and good players, and depending on organized crime.....maybe the ability to win a championship.

Then again, maybe the second round....who knows when you haven't seen them play together this year, yet.

bench is overrated in the playoffs, matters more in the regular season. theyr bench also isn't that weak either. people are overeacting.

That is why KG is rated #1 in fantasy.

Janett_Reno
10-27-2007, 06:45 PM
If Garnett stays healty he will have a monster year. I feel Allen will also because everyone must double Garnett and leave Allen wide open to drain 3's on you all game long. A great piece was James Posey, where Garnett, Pierce and Allen doesn't have to chase around the best offensive player from the other team. This is Posey's job. I think your pick of Garnett was great.

fluid.forty.one

Garnett may very well slip a little. But I think he will still be a top 3 fantasy player in most scoring systems.

I'd like to watch them play us, Spurs, Suns, Rockets and see how they do.

Too early for praise, they might be crushing some teams like tonight but the Raptors took them to OT and nearly won. Just saying...

11-07-2007, 09:23 PM
Celtics shot lights out. They did other things well, note the 32 assists. Note the rebounding advantage. Note the 20 steals, another advantage.

But, when you look at shots taken and the percentage hit, you find that the primary reason the Celtics won was because they shot lights out, around 65% from the field.

The Celtics have a LOT of talent now. But, (to quote the Tuna), I'm not going to annoint them just yet...

Toronto is a legit playoff team, and it was in Toronto--great win for Boston. ECF lock.

I love the Raptors, but they don't have near the tools (even on their own court) that should allow them to take a team like the Celtics to OT and lose by 3. And based off of Toronto's last two disappointing losses to the Bucks and Magic they still have plenty to figure out. That said I hope they are still a playoff team, when they get it together (especially Bosh).

Anyway i'm not saying we should judge the Celtics based off of that performance alone, they are clearly crushing teams at home. But to me the Raptors and Nuggets play a similar style (little defense, quick offense) and the closeness of one game and the blowout of the next shows an inconsistency. I want to see them play a Western contender (Mavs, Suns, Spurs) even the Jazz or Rockets before I make any sort of evaluation, because as of now they have no competition in the EC and they should easily make their way to a great record.

alby
11-08-2007, 03:13 PM
They were a playoff team last year, their players and head coached lacked playoff experience and lost in the first round. Over the summer, they failed to resign Calderon and Peterson, but their stars of TJ, Parker, Bosh, Andrea are all a year older and a year better. In addition, they have added Delfino and Kapono, whom both have been deep in the playoffs.

horse900703
11-08-2007, 03:19 PM
so far, they did pretty good 4-0

Tokey41
11-08-2007, 06:20 PM
Calderons still there for now, good thing too... he's better than Ford and at a much lower price. I envy their point guards and playmaking.

The thing is the East improved a great deal (well the bad teams improved a great deal), and between their losses to the Magic (who got a 'big name' addition) and the Bucks (like the Raptors, still young and developing) I sense that unless Bargnani breaks out this year they haven't done enough to stay on par.

Not to mention their division got instantly tougher having the Celtics go from lottery to favorite. I'm saying this as a fan of theirs of course, I just feel homer-esque saying they would win 50 games or more this year.... anyways this is way off topic.

This team really is playing incredibly well. It seems like every time I turn on a Celtics game they're up by 20+. The East is really as weak as ever.

Its funny that the best Eastern Conference teams this year are the ones who got talent away from the West. Its about time. Things got real bad when AI came over to the West. Things just got so lop-sided. Teams like the Cavs shouldn't represent the East in the Finals. They're not good enough. But this Celtics team is intriguing.

minkbarn
12-10-2007, 08:24 AM
The Celtics are playing very well— very consistent on the defensive end, which is why they're a threat to win everything. On offense they've been mostly up and some down, particularly Ray Allen who has been fairly cold from outside. Once he gets his stroke back the Celtics should play even better.

Big Baby's been playing way better, way earlier than expected. He's solidly moved into the rotation and is now the first "big" man off the bench. He's amazingly fast for such a bulky guy. Kind of like Barkley in that respect but without the lift.

Posey and House have been rock solid. Perkins has done his stuff, particularly on defense. And Rondo is a real talent, growing game by game (he probably has the biggest hands in the league).

It's a strong contending-level team. It will be great to see them play the West's best. Something to look forward to.

Detroit, Chicago, and Orlando all this week during the Celtics' homestand.

They play the Jazz on the 29th of December which should be a good test.

Their first test against a top Western conference team isn't until January 31st when the Mavs meet them in Boston. That should be an awesome game if both teams continue to play well until that poing, and I'm pretty psyched that I will be there in person to see it :D

minkbarn
12-17-2007, 08:46 PM
Ray Allen actually has been shooting poorly. His ankle has bothered him since he twisted it in the Charlotte game. He's missed the last two contests. When he gets his shot back the Celtics will be even better- a scary thought. He should play on Wednesday against Detroit.

They will need Allen's shooting though as the schedule is getting a bit tougher.

I believe they're at or near an all-time high in margin of victory right now.

The thing with Ray is that he can go 1-11, but then hit a game winning three at the buzzer.

Yeah, he's already done it twice, against Toronto and Charlotte. Two buzzer beating game winners. Daggers.

what a ballgame.

With 34 seconds left, Pistons were up 6 points and Boston ties it with 18.9 seconds left after three pointers from Eddie House and Ray Allen.

Detroit then isolates Mr. Big Shot only to be rejected at the rim.
With over 5 seconds left, Pierce leaves a baseline jumper short.
With 1.7 seconds left, Detroit then calls Chauncey's number again and he just showed Tony Allen how to play down the stretch.

Detroit - 87
Boston - 85

20-3

I found myself cheering for Dwight and the Magic tonight. They were down 20+ in the third, but fought back to bring the game back to single digits midway through the fourth, but Boston was just too good. The colorman for the Celtics may be the biggest homer in Boston not named Bob Ryan.

Boston beats the team that beat them earlier in the year

Magic - 91
Celtics - 103

Bob Ryan? That guy's been ripping the Celtics for years. He's complained about and criticized everything Ainge has done. He wrote a column about the Celtics lack of depth after the big trades and up until very recently said they had a lot of holes.

Now of course he's acting like he's been leading the parade all along. He's shameless.

As a sidenote, we Celtic fans love Tommy Heinsohn. I understand why fans of other teams don't but you must understand— when you're watching a Celtic home broadcast, it's aimed at us.

Anyway I am looking forward very much to the first Mavs game vs. Boston. It should be a great one.

The Laker game tonight will be very tough. The Lakers are playing their best, and the Celtics are on the second night of a back to back and the 4th game in 5 nights on the road.

In Boston the Celtics toyed with the Lakers, but Bynum got in early foul trouble and was no factor. Perkins had probably his best game of the season.

Then again, the Celtics have showed great heart all year. Last night's game in Utah was the type they should have lost. Boston was tired and didn't play their usual suffocating defense. Utah was fired up after getting blown out in LA and was shooting an amazing percentage. The Jazz are a strong home team. Still, Boston came back and won.

Tonight's game should be fierce.

The Celtics are fine. Garnett will take the time he needs to come back form the abdominal pull. Pierce played with the flu last night. Both Allens are getting healthier and better. And Rondo keeps improving.

When everyone's back, they'll run off a bunch of wins again.

Perkins is out with a shoulder injury. He got hurt during the Minnesota game tonight. He has a history of shoulder trouble. No word on how long he'll be out.

The Celtics have lost Garnett, Pollard, and Perkins. They have no one over 6'8" now.

They managed to squeak by Minnesota on a game winner at the buzzer by Leon Powe.

Boston is now 15-0 against the west, but play the Spurs next. With only Big Baby and Powe left for big men, the streak against the west could easily end Sunday.

They'll need Rondo to take advantage of Parker being out.
