If the Celtics "try' this season i believe they can be a .500 teams. however I do not think they will play guys like Humphries and Wallace as much as guys like Sullinger and Olynck so i blieve they will win about 35 games. If we hold out Rondo early in the seaon and/or trade him etc...then it could get worse, but a .500 record with the current roster is possible IMO.
I believe this team can actually make the playoffs and possibly be better than last season's record.
Dont get me wrong...I think tank mode is the way to go for at least 1 year.
