In response to wozzy's comment:
Danny Ainge isn't tanking, they tanked in 06-07' because they were at rock bottom and had to, now they're a modern, young, exciting team with cap space and with players who are valuable as chips.
Whoever insisted they were tanking is either a headline grabber, a troll or a genuine fan who posts with emotion instead of cool logic.
This team doesn't have one superstar, but it will be one the deepest, most talented teams in the NBA from top to bottom and will be skillfully coached as well.
Ainge will never get enough credit in Boston with Belichick around, but with maybe the best eye for talent in all of basketball, the C's will never be down for long again.
He was one of my favorite players, he's quickly becoming one of my favorite all time Celtic's GMs... and that's a tough assignment when Red is the benchmark.
Only way the Celts will look like as if they're tanking is if Rondo doesn't play.
With Rondo, the Celts will be competitive.
No Rondo means lottery team.
