    I'll take Stevens over the run 'em into the ground, screaming egomaniac Pitino as far as 'college genius' coaches

    I'll take 2 months of Pressy and 4 months of Rondo over 4 months of Billups and 2 months of Kenny Anderson.

    I'll take a 26 year old Jeff Green over a 22 year old Antoine Walker

    Ditto to Avery and Lee over Mercer and Barros

    Gerald Wallace over 1st year in the league Bruce Bowen

    Faverani, Bass and Humphries over Travis Knight, Andrew DeClerq and Pervis Ellison

    Olynyk and Sullinger over Waltah

    Crawford over Dee Brown (traded halfway through the year0

    On an on... look what garbage Rick got to 36 wins with.

     

     



    So true ! What a roster of garbage Pitino had that first year...

    Still, they won 36 games (and the opener over the Chicago Bulls...as big of a deal as tonights win over Miami !)

    I stand by my prediction: Celtics will win more than 41 games this season , lots of young athleticism and upside , so much better than living another year of The Long Goodbye with KG and Pierce....



    How about this season, will you guys still predict the Celts ending up with more than 36 wins?

    Not really sure what this thread is about....it's all over the place....too many names.  But, I do know this......with the many knowledgeable posters that have commented on here, I know NO ONE is saying Brad Stevens is a better coach than Rick Pitino....and as long as we all understand that, I'll allow the thread to continue......LOL



    This thread is about how much more talented these '14 Celtics are as compared to the '98 Celtics. Both teams were led by rookie coaches who were dubbed a 'genius' in the college ranks.

    Those Celtics won 36 games. Anyone saying this Celts team has no shot to win 30 is a fool.

    I agree - should put us in the 7-10 range.  Not what folks around here are clamoring for, I know.

    36 would be a stretch, IMO.  There will be injuries and trades.  Just keep playing hard, win the occasional shocker and we'll all be fine.

    This is a perfect example of how stats don't tell the whole story.

    If the 2014 Celts have more talent than the 1998 Celts, why did the 2014 Celts fail to win 30 games?

    Does this mean Rick Pitino is a better coach than Brad Stevens?
