KG, not its actually Rondoooooooooo. Without KG the Celtics still won 60+ games, because they actually had depth @ 4 with Big Baby & Powe. After Powe went down, they had no one behind big baby and their chances of repeating or reaching the finals was over. It all comes back to Rondoooo. The Celtics are practicality unbeatable when Rondo is focused. Being a young Point-Guard Rondo has a tendency to lose focus sometimes. That's what separates his from the elite PG, he doesn't bring it every night.

game 7 in the semis isnt that early.

do you really think they get that much further without pierce? at KG's backups are a hell of a lot more apt and able (powe and davis) than tony allen is replacing pierce...

but no1 can make up kgs defense....whereas allen rondo and kg cud step up offensively (tony allen is supposed to be a defensive specialist so losing pierce D (or lack thereof) wudnt hurt the celtics)

Rondo.
Honestly, he's the only ball handler they have.
Without Rondo, Ray can't run around screens for open looks.
Without Rondo, KG can't run a decent Pick and Roll.
Without Rondo, Pierce has to do more ball handling and faciliting.
Without Rondo, this team can NEVER play uptempo.

It was Garnett. Now I think it's Rajon Rondo.

The Celtics have depth up front with Perkins, Garnett, Wallace, and possibly Glen Davis. If Garnett goes down, they have capable bigs to step in and pick up a lot of the slack. If Pierce or Allen went down, Marquis Daniels (an underrated acquisition by the way) is there.

If Rondo went down, the backcourt suddenly becomes a mess. Eddie House isn't a point guard, Gabe Pruitt is not back-up material much less starting caliber, and Stephon Marbury, who won't be back, goes without saying.

He's their best penetrator, by far their best ball handler, a good defender at his position, and most of all a true point guard. The only one they have.

did anyone watch the playoffs in 2008?
maybe i was on a different channel than you guys. but paul pierce outplayed labron james and kobe bryant didnt he? yup.
if pierce was hurt and kg was playin probably would of lost to the bulls in first round.

rondo doing his job doesnt mean he's the mos valuable.

Ray Allen...he is their quiet leader. Garnett and Paul Pierce have the tendency to be cocky...and Rondo is still maturing. I believe Ray Allen is the only guy who usually let's his play speak for him and I think he is their best lockerroom guy.

I wouldn't say Allen is their best lockerroom guy. Allen has had a few instances where he complained about the amount of shots he was getting (just not to the media) as well as having conflict with Rondo at times (probably more Rondo's fault because Rondo is actually the lockerroom problem child) when he doesn't get enough touches. KG and Pierce are cocky and loud, but that's part of what makes people great. They are cocky to the rest of the world, but not at their own teammates... they spend as much time mentoring everyone else on the as anyone out there. They are the team's leaders and hardest workers (along with Allen)... they lead by example.

But in terms of the most valuable player? Right now its Rondo. He runs the team like an all-star point and when he needs to (injuries, bad streaks for teammates), he takes over the game. He needs to mature, but then again he's young. I guess you can say every member of the Big 4 are the team's MVP... but ask anyone on that squad and they'll say Rondo.

Kg is the key to the d (d wins rings) so i should say him but ill go wit rondo he runs the show, n if u were to ask the celtics they would say the same

For the best player on the Celtics, there could be a huge debate. But, when it comes to team MVP, its as easy as one, two, three.

Paul Piere, the captain, the leader, and true warrior. I'm not even a Celtics fan and I have so much respect for this guy. He fights day-in and day-out. He is the most valuable player on the Celtics.

Without KG, they struggle. (But, almost beat Magic -Game 7-)

Without Paul Pierce, they are useless.

I would even go as far and say I think Paul Pierce is possibly one of the most underrated players in the NBA. He gets tagged as "the guy who won with KG". Everyone wins with talented players around them.

And other than Kobe, he has maybe the best leadership skills.

KG. Simple as that. With him, there contenders, w/o him, there nothing.

Without him they went to Game 7 against the reiging East Champs, Magic. They just choked in that game.

I wouldn't say that is nothing.

I'd still call them a top 3 team in the east without KG

Even though, of course, they aren't the same team without him.

Anyone want to take the odds without Pierce? I sure as hell don't.

I guess you didn't watch the 08-09 playoffs. Because Paul Pierce basically showed why he was the captain. He took over and put the Celtics in position to beat the Magic, at home, in game 7. They just choked, (sh)it happens.

Paul Pierce cocky? I don't think so.

I'd even say Pierce played better than Kobe and LJ23 in the 08-09 playoffs.

Like the ****** before you who said who cares? If you truly didn't care or 'give a ****' you wouldn't have responded or even entered the thread. Great job making yourselves look stupid. Kudos :clap:

I think it's Pierce too, for what it's worth.

I think it's Rajon Rondo. He's the guy that gets the ball to the big 3 evenly and he also does the little things aswell. Without Rondo the Celtics wouldnt be a contender IMO

like most have said they took orlando to 7 without kg. now they have sheed and daniels so dont tell me that team cant contend with sheed in there instead of kg. sure it is not as good, but nothing, cmon now.

pierce is the leader and mvp of the team. kg is the defensive mvp because of his intensity and emotion but pierce has to guard other teams best player like lebron, etc. losing pierce would hurt more.

Title says all.

The year they won the title it was Garnett. Led the team in PER, Win Shares and was higher in MVP voting.

My answer to this question is Kevin Garnett.

If the Celtics had Kevin Garnett, things may have been different. I am not sure how much different, but it'd make a difference. Glen Davis did step up, but it was no where near compared to what Kevin Garnett would of done.

KG. He's the defensive anchor of that team and he can guards the bigs.
