    In response to Fiercest34's comment:

    Basketball analysts don't even have the Celtics winning the Atlantic Division!

    The Celts' Big 3 era has ended.

    This season the Celts are trying to rebuild and win at the same time. I don't know if it's possible, but Ainge did a good job making the Celts a younger and more athletic team.

    When Wade will be 33 years old and Bosh 31 years old, 3 years from now, that's the time I expect this Rondo led Celtics team to be contenders again. Right now the Celts are still very good. But I don't know if the Celts can beat Lebron in a 7-game series when Lebron is at his prime.

    Most probably the Celts are going to be in the 2nd round of the playoffs again. But May is still 6 months away. A lot can still happen. We don't even know if Ainge will keep this current Celts team together or he will make changes at the trade deadline.

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm happy with the current Celts team, even if they are struggling. This kind of Celtics basketball is better than the one when everybody was waiting for Ray to get open until the shot-clock expired.



    Tell that to KG and P2. NO rebuilding process here. Just a feeling out process. In the end, the C's will be there again. Let's not forget that when Avery Bradley gets back, this Team will be able to run much better and DWade can enjoy another Spalding tattoo on his forhead.

    From the guy who brought us Occupy Rondo... and bet against the Cs making the PO's last year.

    Re: Let's Not Forget This is A Rebuilding Year

    Not splitting hairs....rebuild, retool, recharge................the fact is this:  we took MIA to 7 games last year with a bench of Dooling, Pietrus, Hollins and Steamer.  We have vastly improved our bench - so we should be better..................unfortunately, MIA has also improved their bench, so chances are we will suffer the same fate, unless DA can get us a Millsap, Smith or Varajeo at the deadline.

    I like this team, and will live and die with whoever we have on our  roster!!

    Agree that having Bradley back should help this team to improve.  By that time, hopefully, the team will have developed better team chemistry.

    well, in my opinion, we can call it anything we collectively want to.....I will just say that I think the talent and depth of this roster is better than last year's team......that said, the chemistry is currently no where near as good as it was....so it is a work in progress....I will say I am impressed with the moves Danny made....I know as fans (especially the older ones) we have gotten spoiled over the years...but having won the most banners in league history the team has still failed to win it all approximately 75% of the time over the years....just like in MLB, the great hitters still fail 7 out of 10 at bats....

    In response to OneOnOne's comment:

    I believe the Lakers have 9 new players.  Are they rebuilding as well?



    The Lakers are clearly not rebuilding because they're stacked with old players.

    Last season the Celts started the season with 4 old players and Rondo.

    Again, I'm not saying the Celts are a rebuilding team like the Bobcats. Ainge tried to do 2 things at once, rebuilding at the same time trying to win.

    Come on, when you lose 70% of your players from last season, it's not retooling anymore.



    Well I just pointed out the same reason you said we were rebuilding for the Lakers.  The pretty much have as many new players as we do.  They have some old players yes,  but they also have a few youngsters,  they are just not in the rotation.  I would prefer to say that we reloaded,  which means we kept our nucleous and add some pieces.

    Agreed, it will take some time ton gel but that is NOT because they are rebuilding, that term is used for teams that are lotto bound and dumping expensive veterans and not expecting to win.

    The Lakers are also not a 'crappy' team until they spend months under .500 and appear headed to the lotto, they also have to introduce new players and a new system. If they are not rebuilding by replacing half their rotation then Boston certainly isn't either.

    Pierce quit on the team last year... let's hope this really is his inability to understand the defintion of these terms he throws out and not his planting thr seeds to jump off the bandwagon... again.

    Just saying 'yeah I guess I was wrong, the word 'rebuilding isn't appropriate here' is an impossible statement for him to make. He will just spin off in a million directions of weak explanation. Says a lot about the guy as a man.



    How did Pierce quit on the team?  He played hurt and outplayed everyone opposite of him in the playoffs except Lebron.  Who outplays Lebron?

    Fierce.... sorry...hahaha... Fierce the poster quit on the '12 Celtics... Pierce the player did not;-)




    Again I wasn't really paying attention.  Imagine that.
