I have come to a conclusion that the backbone of this Celtics team is Kevin Garnett. Whether be at the Center or Power Forward position. Rondo is not our best player just because he puts up the best stats. Kevin Garnett is & has been all along. This is scary because K.G. will soon leave us in a year or 2.
I have also come to a conclusion that without a great or very good Center or Power Forward (like Leon Powe was) this team will indeed have struggles. Last night game was 1 of many examples we've witnessed now for a few seasons. Garnett when taking aout the Celts players looked lost, when he got inserted their back to familiar territory.
For the C's to make any noise going forward consistently for 4 quarters they definitely have to make a play for a very good Center or Power Forward 6-10+ or give Fab a look at that position as K.G. back-up. Steisma did pretty well last year, & so far this year we have no Steisma, but a Sully who's not a great defensive anchor, but and he also start now; so no back-up.
Honorable Mention: Paul Pierce
