Boston Celtics: The Big Green Machine

We'll be back and better than ever!

Boston Eastern Elite?

Posted by r1zzo23 on July 3, 2007

Although many don’t like the Ray Allen deal, most realize that we are definitely a better team now than we would have been if we didn’t trade. But most think that we are no higher than a six seed in the playoffs, except for Craig from the Association.

I see the C’s moving up into the top 4 of the Eastern Conference in 2007-08, but with Doc Rivers at the helm they are a first-round loss. It’s 2008-09 that I really see the C’s as a dangerous team. Rondo will have a whole year as a starter under his belt, Jefferson will be more polished, the new Big Three will learn how to play together and… if Doc Rivers is fired and replaced by a respectable head Coach, the C’s are a serious Eastern Conference contender.

I sure hope you are right, Craig. If Gerald could become a 6th Man of the Year candidate and Rondo can take a huge leap forward over this next season, then there’s a possibility. Hopefully they add an instant impact player in the draft next season and make a push for an Eastern Conference Championship. Here’s hoping we can be relevant in the upcoming seasons.
