Not a big deal, he's just displaying his satisfaction in the team going forward.

I agree with him, i thought they ran out of gas in that game 7 last year but they are deeper this year and a little younger getting Green back, adding Courtney Lee and getting Bradley back at some point this year will be a huge boost. Also like the Jason Terry signing because he spot up and move without the ball ala Ray Allen but he can handle the ball and effectively run the pnr.

I have the Celtics as a top 2 team in the East.

They weren't a championship contender last year. This year, as Rondo enters his prime, they will be.

If anyone cares, I have the Heat, Celtics, and Knicks as the top 3 teams in the East.

Uh, I think most rational fans think they are a top 4-5 team in the NBA.

That being said, everyone on their roster, and almost any roster, is 100% now. Will Pierce and KG, and any other older vet be the same by game 70? That will be the part to watch.

They were one win from the Finals...lol. That's a championship contender. If it wasn't for Lebron being the best player in basketball they would have advanced.

Rondo's prime so far is 2008-2010. He actually tailed off these last two years.

This year is the last gasp, once PP and KG lapse into decline, what's Rondo going to do then? Score 25 a night on 11 for 27 shooting every night?

Bos will NE a solid team and a top 4 seed almost for sure.

But I don't have a clue what makes anyone think they should be any better than last year or the year before.

I think ray Allen joining Miami is some cowardly BS, but even I agree w him that bos has peaked.

I don't know dude. The bench they have now to me is the best it's been since '08, and they have a bit more scoring punch off the bench with Terry. They're also very versatile on both ends at the wing positions. They'll be better than last year. Im sure of it.

celtics are an ecf threat.. nothing more. they arent winning a title this year. no way they can beat heat,lakers or okc...

im surprised they are getting so over rated here on psd. pierce is declining. kg wont be able to repeat last playoffs. terry is a good add.. but not enough imo.

KG played 31 MPG last season. I expect that to go down a little and Doc will probably not play KG and Pierce against teams like the Bobcats, the Wizards etc. like he did last season.

They might win a game? Um they took the champions to 7 last year. And they're better this year, much better depth. The Jet, Lee, and Green are 3 QUALITY backups. I'd say they have the best bench in the NBA, and that was their biggest weakness last year.

I don't care what you say about them, they are contenders to win it all. They can beat any team in a 7 game series. They improved from last year, if sullinger does anything off the bench and Green is healthy look out Miami.

Celtics are gonna be good. I think they have a chance to beat the heat. i don't see them being a terrific regular season team though. pierce and kg will have a hard time carrying this team. Rondo is the best pg in basketball but he isn't a good enough scorer to carry this team.

wrong. pierce is more clutch than anyone on that heat roster. terry as well. the celtics are always over looked but always comes out as a surprise.

they are just as deep, just as experienced. only thing they dont have is lebron.

if pierce can stays out of foul trouble....

but still, any team that has lebron, will be the favorites.

No reason the Celtics can't be a top 2 seed if they stay healthy.

Rondo - Terry
Bradley - Lee
Pierce - Green
Bass - Sullinger
KG - Wilcox - Collins/Darko

Not too shabby.

From the playoff roster, they lost Ray, Dooling, Pietrus and Stiemsma.

They added Jeff Green, Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, Chris Wilcox, Jared Sullinger, Jason Collins, Darko..

I know Boston isn't going anywhere despite age, but why do so many people ignore why that series with Miami was so close? If Bosh was there from game 1 that's a very, very different series. Once he came back, despite not being all there and them having to initiate him back into the team, that series was a whole lot different.

I think the only thing Boston did was stop the bleeding on their aging. The lockout and shortened schedule helped them due to their chemistry and experience. The longer schedule will put more wear on them.

How many people forget that they had the 5th best record in the east last year? Don't expect them to finish high in the regular season, that old team is going to be in hardcore coast mode just the same. By the playoffs they should be playing at a top 3 level in the east, at worst. At the same time the other top teams in the east, Miami, Indiana New York and Philly, all just got noticeably better.

The fight on the road will be much tougher this year for them as a 4/5 seed, and just one injury to Pierce or KG will derail them.

I'd like to see the C's win another title. Not sure if they would be able to keep up with Miami though.

And if they do get past Miami, can they get past the Lakers??

Man, I can't wait to see the Lakers play the other elite teams this year. Gonna be good.

I agree with everything you said, BUT, none of that brings them to a new level. They have been a damn good team over the years. But couldn't get past Miami.

And none of these moves puts them over the top, these are role-players, and not the elite role-players that change games on the normal. Terry was once that, I doubt he still is, and everyone else is older.

The moves the celtics made put them toe and toe with the Knicks IMO, pacers are 4th seed.

cool and when PP is talking about next year or the year after or the year after or 4 years from now that willl be relevant.

This is big year in seeing which direction Rondo's career goes.

Not hard to be "good" in the Eastern Conference .... In the West on the other hand...It's hard to "ok"

The gap in talent from the East to West only actually exists in the minds of usually Lakers fans.

Has Duncan really ever talked like that? Pierce has been very outgoing with his remarks about his professional career. Duncan is basically the polar opposite. Type A and B personalities defined. Both are future HoFers for sure and have been very successful going about things in their own way.

Actually the last two years have been more of his prime so far, he has been the focal point of that team over the past two years. Garnett and Pierce's decline, wouldn't even worry about that, teams has young and talented assets and Rondo can create a shot for anyone on that team.

Let me say this 1st: I HATE THE CELTICS. but he's right. Core three still around. Enough big bodies to limit KG minutes. J. Green back. JT, C. Lee, healthy A. Bradley, young rookies (Sullinger, Melo) Last year team gave the champs all they could handle now they are alittle deeper & some speed. He could be right. But I still hate them.
