we need another big.  Maybe Kmart or some young athletic banger.  It'll be tough otherwise/

All about matchups...i dont think boston gets by miami or indy but id give them a 10 percent chance of getting out of the east. A month ago i would have said zero percent

Yeah same here, if pierce plays like vintage pierce and KG plays like vintage KG and terry plays like the terry that helped dallas win a championship........dare i say we have a slim shot. Not a great shot, Id still pick miami in a 7 game series and feel comfortable doing so.

Still need a big. I'm hoping we get kmart and someone else. Our defense is good enough to get it done that's obvious. Its going to come down to our guys making shots when we need it most. Again, I still think the heat win in 5 or 6 if the series started tomorrow.

I think so too...

I wonder what seeding we'll end up with... that will decide the matchups. If Miami stays first, and we're in the 4th, 5th, or 8th, it's bad. We should go for 3rd, 6th, 7th in order to have to face... the Pacers...

I totally forgot about the Bulls. Dang.

sorta doubt it if Rondo returns
Doubt if he came back they'd start running everything through him again if this continues.
That said  he isn't, so they're gonna win it all now? Lol

Barring a Lebron injury, probably not.  However, it should be a fun ride.

I think it's barring Rose does not come back as well as expected.

With the experience of KG Pierce and Terry I think we can have as good a ride as we did last year and put up a nice fight in the ECF.

No, not enough talent to overcome our front court deficiency without Rondo. Even with Rondo it would have been a longshot.

On the flip side, that's pretty much the outlook for every team in the league other than the Thunder.

that's a great point......there is only one LBJ super human,   Durant is the only one on one counter to him.......so yea.......Celtics are in the same boat , and have as good shot as many teams to,take down the hated Heat and Spobot Riley puppet thingy coach

several teams can make some noise, I now count Celtics as one of them that has a prayer.
