Sheed: C’s Can Win 72 Games

Rasheed Wallace has never been shy about saying what he thinks. Here’s his latest gem:
I think we can get that Bulls record.
For those who don’t know, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls set the record for most wins in a single season with a record of 72-10 in the 1995-1996 season. The Celtics have won 66 and 62 games in the past two seasons, but do have a team that could definitely flirt with the 70-win mark. The question becomes would it be beneficial for the team to strive for this achievement? This would require the starters, mainly Pierce, Allen and Garnett, to play more minutes than I would like to see and perhaps wear them out for the postseason. As great as it would be to see this team win that many games, another NBA title in June would be much more appealing.
