The Boston Celtics open training camp next week with a new roster and the same confident attitude. Forget that the Los Angeles Lakers are the NBA’s reigning champions. Paul Pierce is already predicting another title for the Celtics – provided, of course, they stay healthy.

“Before the season even started last year, I was asked, ‘What is going to stop ya’ll from winning it all?’ ” Pierce said in a phone interview on Thursday. “The first thing I said was, ‘If we’re healthy, we’re going to win it all.’ And I’m going to say it again: ‘If we are healthy, we are going to win it all.’

“I honestly believe that. I think we’re the best team in the NBA, healthy.”

You really can't argue with that. Anyone who thinks the Magic would've got past the Celtics with a healthy KG needs their head checked.

....coming from the best player in the world, I'll take it with a grain of salt. Personally, I don't see how anyone but the Lakers could be the favorite. On paper, they DRASTICALLY improved at SF on both ends of the floor. Given that will take pressure off Kobe having to lockdown the LeBrons, TMacs, Pierces, etc., they have to be the favorites.

(This is in no way derailing the thread. He said the Celtics were the best and I said why they arn't.)

ehh paul pierce needs to learn to shut up and play ball. the celtics are a good team no doubt bout that. he needs to relax and let the game come to him. these couple of years he been crazy with the mouth. him and gilbert arenas.

Doesn't he also think he is the best player in the NBA.

I do agree with him, if they are healthy, they are the best team probably, but the only one who should go saying that is LA.

08 celtics FULLY HEALTHY, and won title

08 lakers (no bynum, and ariza not being ariza cuz he just came back from injury), did not win title



09 celtics (no KG, leon powe only 1st rd), did not win title

09 lakers with not everyone healthy (Bynum was not Bynum, but more like a hybrid of kwame brown and mark blount, cuz he just came back from injury), and STILL won title


2009 offseason

Celtics lose Marbury, Powe and Moore. And add Wallace, Williams and Daniels.


Lakers lose Ariza and Sun. And add Artest and probably Gelabale (pending how he does in preseason)

Now, use ur common sense....and figure out who'll win in 2010 :)

Lakers are the team to beat

He's right their bench has gotten incredibly better since last year which will definitely help them towards the end of the season.

Pierce is the truth and he speaks the truth too.

wait a min i thought celtics fans say pierce is their best player? :confused: Oh i guess now they changed their minds...again... :pity:

but anyway u also went to game 7 with a team that missed their 2nd best player as well. (Jameer Nelson hello?)

And to answer that question probably not far, but that's because kobe has a much much bigger impact on the lakers then KG does on the celtics.

Celtics fans never once proclaimed Pierce as the best player on that team. In fact ive never said that. Ive always thought KG was a far better player than him

KG had a MUCH bigger impact on the Celtics than Jameer did on the Magic, Plus the Magic went out and traded for a player to replace him. the Celtics made no such trade. You can't say that the loss of KG =< the loss of Jameer

And you dont think KG's loss had a HUGE impact on the Celtics? Healthy KG = Champs, Hurt? 2nd Round exit

i did not say KG's loss was bigger then nelson's loss, i was simply mentioning that the celtics did not play a healthy team either.

Once again i did not say the loss is not huge, i said that if kobe ever got injured then his loss would be much more huge then kg's loss.

I may be biased but LA has addressed their major shortcomings following their defeat at the hands of the Celtics. What killed the Lakers was a lack of toughness and Paul Pierce. The Lakers toughness and mental edge is definitely better, and Artest will surely slow down Pierce. A healthy Bynum will sure help help too.

I say bring it!

THe Celts window is closed, maybe they can win on the senior tour... Ray is 100 and inconsistent, KG is declining rapidly and so is his health, and Paul is hurt and not hurt in one game, then he's the hero for willing himself play, then he is awful in game 7 against the magic, you never know what Paul is going to do, and rasheed was extremely pedestrian last year and has declined every year that he has not been with the other wallace

09-25-2009, 10:56 AM
lakers are team to beat, they just won it all and got better with artest, then the magic are team to beat in east, they got deeper with bass and barnes and replaced Turk with a superstar, and jameer will be back(they made it to the finals without their allstar pg...impressive) and Dwight will be a year better, so I would say Lakers 1, Magic 2, Celts 3

The only team that could beat them when they were healthy were the Wizards and bobcats.
As long as they avoid those teams, I don't see why they can't repeat.
They've had some decent pickups this offseason. Most importantly, they finally got rid of Tony "oops" Allen.

08 celtics FULLY HEALTHY, and won title

08 lakers (no bynum, and ariza not being ariza cuz he just came back from injury), did not win title



09 celtics (no KG, leon powe only 1st rd), did not win title

09 lakers with not everyone healthy (Bynum was not Bynum, but more like a hybrid of kwame brown and mark blount, cuz he just came back from injury), and STILL won title


2009 offseason

Celtics lose Marbury, Powe and Moore. And add Wallace, Williams and Daniels.


Lakers lose Ariza and Sun. And add Artest and probably Gelabale (pending how he does in preseason)

Now, use ur common sense....and figure out who'll win in 2010 :)

I fail to see your point. How in the heck is the aquisition of Artest and a garbage 2nd rounder better than the Celtics aquisition of an All-Star player in Wallace and another Borderline All-Star in Daniels? In case you didn't get the memo, Moore and Marbury are BUMS. Powe was mediocre at best.

Last summer Celtics were the team to beat according to C's fans and I agreed. Lakers won it this Year and they are the team to beat, Now agree with that and stop being such homers

I believe I did. Every fan base has people who are reasonable and people who are unreasonable. The truth is that it's always a small minority on both sides who are reasonable.

Don't let a bunch of people make you a hater of all C's fans. Just as I didn't let those Lakers fans make me close minded towards anyone who happened to be a Laker fan.

Lakers are reigning champions and are the team to beat until another team dethrown's us. Plain and simple.

I fail to see your point. How in the heck is the aquisition of Artest and a garbage 2nd rounder better than the Celtics aquisition of an All-Star player in Wallace and another Borderline All-Star in Daniels? In case you didn't get the memo, Moore and Marbury are BUMS. Powe was mediocre at best.

Wallace is not an all-star and Daniels is not even close to being an all-star. The Lakers sigened just Ron and he is alone beter then Wallace and Daniels.

Celtics aren't the team to beat. Their health is a major issue and the big 3 is getting old. Even though it's really more like the big 2 since Allen can easily become 'The Ghost of Ray Allen' and never show up.

And I don't think adding Rasheed Wallace will do much (other than guarantee a few more technical fouls on Boston). It will probably take him too long to get used to the Celtics system. He's been playing in the same system for too long to fit in quickly.

edit: and all this talk by Paul Pierce is meaningless. This is the guy who declared himself the best player ever.

the lakers won the title without being healthy so according to paul's reasoning if the lakers are healthy damn watch out. seriously its all about health, but it doesnt matter cause KG already beat Pierce to the punch saying they are winning the next 2 titles
