How many Titles will the trio of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen win?

KG is 31
Pierce is 30
Allen is 32

In 4 years they will be 35, 34, and 36. So I think 4 is the maximum # of titles they could win.

I think they would get 1 and maybe 2 if everything goes right, but I don't see anymore than that because none of the big 3 are at their absolute peak anymore.

How are they not better than the Bulls?

I said if they played in the playoffs, I think the Celtics win in 7 mainly because I think they would have homecourt advantage.

Here are my standings for the Eastern Conference

1. Boston (56-26) - Division Winner
Rondo/Allen/Pierce/Garnett/Perkins)
2. Detroit (53-29) - Division Winner
(Billups/Hamilton/Prince/Wallace/McDysses)
3. Chicago (52-30)
(Hinrich/Gordon/Deng/Thomas/Wallace)
4. Miami (48-34) - Division Winner thus get #4 seed.
(Parker/Wade/Posey/Haslem/O'Neal)
5. Cleveland (51-31)
(Gibson/Hughes/James/Gooden/Ilgauskas)
6. Toronto (46-36)
(Ford/Parker/Kapono/Bargnani/Bosh)
7. Washington (44-38)
(Arenas/Stevenson/Butler/Jamison/Haywood)
8. New Jersey (41-41)
(Kidd/Carter/Jefferson/Magloire/Kristic)

heinrich, deng, and wallace (with noah helping) can all guard the big 3 for the pistons. and there is no way peirce or allen could guard heinrich, deng, or gordon,

I don't think they'll win any.

I'm not even convinced that they're the best team in the East and there's no way they beat any of the top West teams in the Finals. Phoenix, SA, Dallas are all better and I think Chicago and Detroit are better as well.

yea i think the bulls and the celts maybe about even just b/c the celts have absolutely no bench.

I would probobly say ONE at the most for now. I think they will definately be in the finals at least once in the next 2-3 years. But still, theyre no better than the Spurs, Suns or still even the Mavs. But in the East, that trio alone can get it done.

I don't EXPECT them to win any..But I could see them winning one, and if they do it this year(I said if) it wouldn't be too far fetched to think they could win another. It depends on what we do with our final roster spot, and how good the big-3 can cope knowing that they're on a team with players as talented as themselves. It's going to be a fun team to watch, none the less.

I realize that, but I don't think the addition of Posey makes them better then Dallas/Phoenix/San Antonio...they still have no decent back up PG, PF, or C..Don't get me wrong I really would love to see Paul Pierce win a 'ship..I just don't see it..at least this year.

You don't think they could take on Dallas? That would be a great series? I even think they may be able to beat Phoenix with what they have now as well. It's not like in the finals you will be playing a ton of guys off the bench anyway.

No I really don't..I don't like the Mavs at all, but I think the Mavs would win in 6

08-26-2007, 07:45 PM
It is way too early to tell. We've yet to see how they play together; they're all on the upper end of their careers, and two of these guys have injury issues-Allen and Pierce. This question will be easier to answer about halfway into the season, IMO. Perhaps they can win one, but that's probably it.

I voted one but thats only if they win it early. If they dont take any in the next 3 years there is no way. They are going to be a big 3 though in the east. They should be a top 3 seed in the East.

I think the Celtics with KG and Pierce and Allen wins 2 titles in the next 4 years, with a possible 3 in the next 5-6 years if the trio stays together that long.

A lot of people here play too many video games. Until they get a bench, this team isn't winning anything. And by the time that happens, it will be too late.

10-03-2007, 03:01 PM
I agree with king4day, except I'll bump it up to 2-3 years before they split up. Ainge made this team to save his job, and that worked, but he's got a lot of work to do to win a championship.
Anyone remember that Lakers team with Malone, Payton, Shaq, Kobe?

If Malone would have been healthy in the Finals, and/or the Lakers had a better backup PF than Slava Madvadenko (sp?), they would have crushed the Pistons. During the season, they were an injury ridden team. If they would have been healthy the whole year, they would have dominated the regular season.

Malone played 4 of the 5 games in the finals. They lost game 1 when Malone played like 38 minutes. If anything Minnesota should be able to used health as an issue, afterall Cassell was hurt in that Lakers series, and we never had Hudson. We have them and we beat the Lakers in 5.

The reason the Lakers lost was that one of the superstars shot 38% from the field while the others shot 63%. 38% is not going to get it done.

Well, yes, Minnesota's run that year was most effected by injury, but that has nothing to do with LA, and their team that year. And sorry if I was wrong about Malone being hurt. I just thought that I remembered him not being 100% in the Finals, and Detroit taking advantage of turnovers. Got to admit, I didnt really pay much attention to the Finals, as I was still a little down from my team losing.

KG+PP+RA = Bird+KMcH+Parish
TMac+Yao = Magic+Kareem

Can someone look up if any team has ever gone from 20 wins to champs in one year?

And if any team has gone from a string of first round exits to champs the following season?

They may both be firsts we are about to witness.

i dont think tmac and yao are as good as magic and kareem, but i got much respect for kg so i think he is comparable and if not better to either mchale or parish. but i think you gotta put both pierce and allen together to make one whole larry bird lol so i kinda have to disagree with your comparisons

Yeah the only difference between T-Mac and Magic was that Magic was like three times as good. And Kareem was twice the player Yao will ever be.

more than likely...they're not going to win a championship because there are so many good teams right now. You got Dallas who always have been good. You got the San Antonio dynasty. You got the proven Detroit Pistons. You got the very good Pheonix Suns with a very formidable trio of their own. You got the revamped Houston Rockets. and last but not least...you got the up and coming Chicago Bulls with their own star players.

But because the trio of KG, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen is so good...i'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say they'll win 1 championship together but no more because of their age.

its the same thing, if they don't win, don't come to me saying they don't have a bench, or the other players were crap. we're going to say in your face when they don't and you're going to say in our faces if they do. i'm saying they won't. i wouldn't be surprised if they DIDN'T win a championship. muahaha. a stupid quick fix and prob their jerseys wouldn't even be retired in Boston, except for Pierce's, let alone a championship.

GAWDtv
10-04-2007, 11:14 AM
I don't see them being together for long as the success they have early will dictate pay increases for all three which will force Boston to move at least one of them or lose them to free agency. Pierce is already underpaid so this is a short window. Injury to any of them will greatly deminish their chances as I see it, each of them counts as 1/4 of the teams talent and the rest of the team is the other quarter...I give them 1 manybe 2 rings within the next 3 to 4 seasons. They will not win this season - book it.

Well we just beat the Knicks by like 40 the other day. How great of a bench do you need?

We have Posey who is good, Tony Allen, Eddie House, Scalabrine who is considered another Nocioni.

How many Titles will the trio of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen win?

KG is 31
Pierce is 30
Allen is 32

In 4 years they will be 35, 34, and 36. So I think 4 is the maximum # of titles they could win.


Do the two people who have said "3" and the THREE people who have said "5" (!) realize that these men are all in their 30s?

That's some hard-concentrated Celtic kool-aid those voters are drinking.

We have Posey who is good, Tony Allen, Eddie House, Scalabrine who is considered another Nocioni.

How many Titles will the trio of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen win?

KG is 31
Pierce is 30
Allen is 32

In 4 years they will be 35, 34, and 36. So I think 4 is the maximum # of titles they could win.

This is what people forget, Mj and the Bulls won 3 in a row and they were older than the big 3 on Boston.

sorry, but the bulls had already won 3 rings; the second 3 came when the guys were older and more experienced, not to mention several conference final runs with and without jordan and a core group.

the boston 3 only have playoff runs and/or conference finals on their resume.

they won 3 titles prior to that time and they were a veteran group. KG nor Pierce nor Allen have ever played with one another. It will take some time. I think they can win a title in the next 3 years, but I don't see them winning 3 unless KG is just in top form.

The team is old, but Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili aren't. Plus Tim Duncan is a winner, and as much as I hate to say it, is better than KG.

Here are a few reasons the Celtics and thier "Big 3" are not going to win title number one.

Duncan, Parker, Ginobli > KG, Pierce, and Jesus Shuttlesworth
Deng, Gordon, Tyrus Thomas > KG, Pierce, and Jesus Shuttlesworth
(Cetlitcs fans, you'll see this one more clearly after this season.)
Stoudemire, Marion, Nash > KG, PP, and Jesus
Nowitski, Howard, Terry > KG, PP, JS
Yao, McGrady, Battier > KG, PP, Ray Shuttlesworth
Howard, Nelson, Lewis >KG, PP, Shuttlesworth
Camby, Anthony, Iverson > KG, PP, Jesus Allen
Shaq, Wade, (pick #3) > KG, PP, JS

There are probably even more that I'm forgetting... and this is from a KG fan. The guy is phenominal. But None of Boston's "BIG 3" have won a ring before, and they won't start now. I firmly believe that the "Big 3's" from the above list are genuinely better than Bostons. And most of them are younger, and most of them play for deeper teams with better younger benches.

I didn't even list the Cleveland LeBrons, or the Los Angeles Kobe's. They may not have a "Big 3" but those two teams do claim the best "Big 1"s in the entire league. Kobe or LeBron can win games by themselves. Ray Allen (Jesus Shuttlesworth) and Paul Pierce have zero chance of guarding Kobe Or Lebron.

I'm basing it all on my own opinion, I think that's about all you can do unless we are adding stats. IMO all those trios I listed would beat Boston's 3 in a game of 3 on 3. Maybe I'm just not sold yet on Allen and Pierce (who are virtually the same player IMO). They are shoot first scorers. Specifically Duncan, Parker, Ginobli would beat up on The Boston 3. A much more well rounded 3. I'll stand behind my list. KG is the only reason the "Big 3" are big at all. Put KG with Michael Redd and Charlie Villenueva and all of a sudden they are a "Big 3".

We should reset this poll or start it over to see what people think now with how the Celtics are playing. Here is something for you to consider thus far this season.

The Boston Celtics are:
#1 in Field Goal percentage, 50.8%.
#1 in Opponent Field Goal Percentage, 39.7%.
#1 in Steals, 11.0.
#1 in Opponent Field Goals Made, 31.2.
#1 in Opponent Rebounds, 37.3.
#1 in Opponent Assists, 17.2.
#1 in Points Differential, 16.3 (vs. 10.2 for San Antonio, 10.2).
#1 in Field Goals Made Differential, 7.1.
#1 in Field Goal Percentage Differential, 11.1.*
#1 in Defensive Rebound Differential, 6.8.
#1 in Rebound Differential, 5.4.
#1 in Steal Differential, 4.2.

#2 in Assists, 24.5.
#2 in Opponent Turnovers, 18.7.
#2 in Assist Differential, 7.3.

#3 in 3 Point Field Goal Percentage Differential, 15.7.
#3 in 3 Turnover Differential, -3.0.

#4 in points scored, 106.5.
#4 in 3 point field goal percent, 41.4%.
#4 in Opponent Points Scored, 90.2.

#5 in Defensive Rebounds.

#28 in Offensive Rebound, 8.7. If you don't miss the shots there are no boards to grab. This is linked to #1 in Opponent's Defensive Rebounds, 27.2.

#29 in Field Goal Attempts, but #7 in Field Goals Made.

The Celtics are also the only team to have never trailed entering the half.

*The next closest team, Portland, is at 4.7.

Anyways, I was just looking for Chicago, detroit, ny, toronto, miami, nj, cle, and indiana fan's opinion on this since they were so adamant all offseason and through the preseason that the celtics didn't have enough this or that. It looks like the have plenty of everything to take the east hands down, imo.:D They aren't just winning and adjusting to one another, they are thriving and blowing teams out. This is exactly what I remember reading so much about what they would not do. It was going to be a good team but not enough to compete with the other teams.

I think Kevin Garnett should be traded to each team in the league for about a week, so everyone can realize how good his defense really is.

I hope KG get's his ring, so one works for me.

how in your twisted minds are the bulls better? celtics 8-0 winning cinvincingly in 6 of em. bulls 2-6, o yea they r wayyyyy better except they r trying to trade for Kobe bc they know their team isnt winning anything.

yup its called the Boston/New England affect. If a Boston team beats another team that was "good" or "elite" going into the game, then that team is no longer as good when the Boston team is evaluated week to week.

see the Red Sox beating the Indians
see the Patriots beating Dallas, San Diego

now it applies to the Celtics. werent the Nuggets supposed to b really good?, and wat about the parody on the so called "improved Eastern Conference??"

I agree they havnt really played a good team but thats bc theres only 5 or 6 really good teams.

Celtics, Spurs, Mavs, Suns, Pistons. thats it.

The c's do have a bench, jus becuz they ain't got big names on that bench dont mean we dont know how to utilize our bench. Tony Allen is nasty jus wait till he takes off that brace on his leg, powe is like a brandon bass, glen davis is like mini shaq, house is a reliable shooter and posey will lock down your best shooter. sam's nasty and pj alright not one of my fav though. give our young players time to develop and our team will be even better than the upcoming years. Doc is a mastermind dude know's how to coach. we'll probably win like 3 nba championshiops.

They are 25-5 against the West and have beaten every team in the league. They beat San Antonio twice, Dallas twice, Houston twice, Lakers twice, etc.

When the Lakers are fully healthy i don't think the Celtics could win a 7 game series vs them. Those 2 wins were not against the Lakers at full strength.

Hard to really predict how many titels they can win i would say they will probobly make it once maybe twice to finals and if they wont get a shot a title this year i say it will be a down hill they got best motivation now probobly best posible bench they will be able to get for few years and some how i really doubt that they could beat Pistons Spurs when they will play for it all

While its true that as the big three age they will deteriorate, you have to also take into account the progression of players like Perkins, Rondo and Big Baby who can help ease the load. With that being said two is definitely the max unless they somehow draft a stud.

03-30-2008, 04:48 PM
How many Titles will the trio of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen win?

KG is 31
Pierce is 30
Allen is 32

In 4 years they will be 35, 34, and 36. So I think 4 is the maximum # of titles they could win.

I dont think they will win any either. One at MOST. Boston sold its future for a quick fix.

LOL at the 109 people who said 0, the most they will win IMO is 5 (which is impossible to happen pending a 5 year championship streak, which i wouldnty be against) they will definitly get one, i think this year, ad depending on how they age, and how the young players (rondo, davis, pruitt) improve they have a good chance to win 3 championships.

bagwell368
03-30-2008, 09:41 PM
I think 1, and I think this year is the best chance. They are old. They have IMO at most a 3 year window before they become a 2nd round and out team.

Best case is 2, no way more then 2.

In all fairness, look at the date on the thread. This is before anyone saw them play. For me, had I known they were going to be the fantastic defensive team they were, I would have given them a little more props.

albertc86
06-18-2008, 12:11 PM
They have a chance of winning another one, if and only if, the eastern conference doesn't get any better. They had a tough road to the finals, but the Cavs, Hawks, and Magic will improve. Detroit is going to be tough regardless, but the complexion of that team will change.

thesparky33
06-18-2008, 01:49 PM
I think they definitely can win another one, possibly 2 more, but I really dont see them winning more than 2 total, just because of their ages, and how hard it really is to win a championship.

The whole team played their hearts out all season long, and even though I'm sure they'll be hungry for another one, it's gonna be very hard to replicate that next season, especially for the "lesser" guys like Rondo, Perkins, etc.

Also, with Posey possibly opting out, and Sam and PJ leaving, it's going to depend on their offseason, and who they can bring in. Hopefully for Boston, Posey doesnt opt out, and they can use their MLE for another key FA signing, and can sign a couple more key guys for the minimum.

Lots of key moves for the Celtics if they want to duplicate this season, but for right now they should just be celebrating :).

I'm not even convinced that they're the best team in the East and there's no way they beat any of the top West teams in the Finals. Phoenix, SA, Dallas are all better and I think Chicago and Detroit are better as well.

looking back at these posts make everyone, including me, look ********. lol.

You remember correctly. Although I wouldn't call it "hate". I knew the Celtics would be a good team. I figured they would be a 2nd round or an ECF knockout (and Cleveland almost beat them they were very close) this season before the year started. But early into the season when I saw what kind of defense they were playing, I knew then they were probably winning the East if they stayed healthy.

AND CHALMERS IS BETTER THAN PRE-BIG 3 ERA RONDO! SO HEAT HATERS JUST STOP SAYING THAT HEAT COULDNT DO WHAT THE CELTICS DID. CUZ 08 KG IS JUST A LIL BIT BETTER THAN BOSH, AND LEBROn&WADE ARE LIGHTYEARS BETTER THAN PIERCE&ALLEN. CHALMERS COULD POSSIBLY BECOME BETTER THAN RONDO IN 2-3 YEARS BECAUSE OF THE HEAT BIG 3

How are they not better than the Bulls?

I said if they played in the playoffs, I think the Celtics win in 7 mainly because I think they would have homecourt advantage.

Here are my standings for the Eastern Conference

1. Boston (56-26) - Division Winner
Rondo/Allen/Pierce/Garnett/Perkins)
2. Detroit (53-29) - Division Winner
(Billups/Hamilton/Prince/Wallace/McDysses)
3. Chicago (52-30)
(Hinrich/Gordon/Deng/Thomas/Wallace)
4. Miami (48-34) - Division Winner thus get #4 seed.
(Parker/Wade/Posey/Haslem/O'Neal)
5. Cleveland (51-31)
(Gibson/Hughes/James/Gooden/Ilgauskas)
6. Toronto (46-36)
(Ford/Parker/Kapono/Bargnani/Bosh)
7. Washington (44-38)
(Arenas/Stevenson/Butler/Jamison/Haywood)
8. New Jersey (41-41)
(Kidd/Carter/Jefferson/Magloire/Kristic)

Wow....how times have changed.
