The Boston Celtics.

They simply have more talent surrounding the big three.

The Celtics do, simply because they have Rondo who is very young and Pierce is still a great player. They have Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeed as well.

The Celtics have a shot this year only...a slim one at that.

The Spurs, imo, don't have a shot at all, as long as the Nuggets, Lakers, Mavs are around. That said, if they sign Wade or LeBron in the off-season, their window opens wide again.

I think the Spurs will have a better team, but with Boston being in a weaker conference, it would make it easier to get to the Finals.

Disagree with this statement.

Manu is gone soon, probably after this season. RJ is just average. Once TD is done the Spurs are done, as in championship window. Same is the case for Dallas when Dirk leaves or retires, but ours is looking pretty much closed now, not locked but shut. Oldest team in the NBA!!

As long as Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson are in the West the Celtics.

They have beaten SA with home court, without home court, with Shaq, without Shaq, without Bynum, down 0-2, and Kobe has always killed them and picked apart their defensive scheme. The only time that the Spurs beat LA in a series was on an Horry missed game winner. LA is and was the proverbial brick wall for them.


Boston is in a much weaker conference and their team as a whole has proven to be able to take it to Orlando and Cleveland. Unlike those two, they also know what it is like to win as the Magic and Cavs teams that made the finals are nowhere near the same as the current ones.

Celtics, they have better young players than the Spurs in Rondo and Perkins.

Both only have 2 or 3 years left though, at the most.

Spurs...in a couple years they'll still have Parker, Blair, Jefferson, and that european guy, Tiago something...I heard he should be really good. All they will need is one 20 ppg scorer, and Blair to become a 13-16 ppg and 8-10 rbg guy to be a serious threat...Boston will only have Rondo and Perkins...

I think the Spurs have this season, possibly the next and then they're done... As soon as Duncan goes, so does the Spurs.

Gotta be Boston the Spurs really don't have any young up and coming talent coming up if you subtract all their old beatup worn out veterans.

Spurs still have Paker, Hill, Blair, and Splitter.

Hmmmm well, their both in the negatives because their championship windows are nearly shut. ;)

I still give the Celtics this year and POSSIBLY next year as legitimate contenders. I counted the Spurs out after last year. I'll be surprised if they can make it to the Conference Finals this year.

They don't? Damn, I thought Hill and Blair were young and talented-not to mention Parker. Well, guess the Spurs are screwed then. :rolleyes:

Spurs- They have Parker and Jefferson under 30... they have Blair, Mason, and Hill. With European prospects as well, they should be fine. Tim Duncan still has a lot left and I don't see him retiring for the next 5 years.

Celtics-Older, but a lot of heart. Garnett has had injury troubles and Ray Allen's play style can last until he is in his 40's (Horry proved that). Rondo is a young stud and Glen Davis/Perkins are all nice young talents, but what everyone forgets is that they will have to deal with Cleveland who we don't know who they will have.


I pick the Spurs, they are always counted out and always make a big impact.

I dont understand how people can use "thes european guys will be good for the spurs". You don't know that, that is like saying...J.R. Giddens, Bill Walker will be studs. I think the Celtics might have less young players, but more bang for the buck with Rondo,Perk and Davis. Not to mention if they keep Marquis, who i beleive is still fairly young.

honestly, i would say neither.

But if i had to pick, i'd pick the celtics. Rondo is a man possessed on the court

Celtics.

Pierce still has a few more years in him. Ray Allen may no longer be the Allen of old but he's still a threat. KG is the biggest question mark on the team. His knee has been ailing him for years, even though Boston insists it's nothing it may slow down his career sooner than we think. Despite KG's injury, they still have Rondo and Perkins who are becoming quality players in this league.

Spurs on the other hand are getting old real quick. Looks like Pop is using the Shaq strategy on Duncan, allowing him to rest on the 2nd day of a back to back. Manu's production is declining. TP still has plenty of years in him, but Spurs need to heavily think about bringing in a new guy to replace Manu.

I'd say the celtics because at this point it seems like the core players are committed to coming back (even at a discounted rate)

Celtics because of Rondo and Perk

Thiago Splitter is already 25 though..not exactly a promising youngster...know what i mean ? but hey maybe he can have a Scola like impact

The Spurs because they ALWAYS improve their team every single year by adding someone. So when Timmy, Manu, or Parker start to decline because of age i guarantee you the Spurs are going to find someone else to take over. The Spurs are just a great organization.

Umm...how bout neither? Both teams window of oppurtunity for a championship has closed imo. Boston won't get passed Cleveland, Atlanta, or Orlando this season or any other in the future. San Antonio won't ever get passed Dallas, LA, or Denver with the group they have now.
