    the most reasonable approach to this season?

    in my humble opinion, unless someone we can't take a pass on lands in our laps, we play out the season, enjoy what may be the last year of the big 3 in boston, and look toward next year. paul and howard are both franchise type players, but both are also flawed. i wouldn't have mortaged the future on either one anyway. frankly, i thought rondo, green, and 2 first rounders was kind of overpaying for a player with bad knees, never mind the fact that he wouldn't sign an extension here.

    i just think we play this year out and save our money for the next two FA classes. there are some big time FAs in 2012 and 2013, even without paul and howard.

    I Agree with Kaktug - lets roll the bones with the Big Three (Core4 w/Rondo)
    for Year #5 of one of the GREATEST ERA's in Boston Celtics history

    The KG / Paul Pierce / Ray Allen Boston Celtics have exceeded all expectations , one championship and another Finals appearance that went to last 2 minutes of Game 7....last year a blown layup by Rondo let Miami off the ropes and we let another Final appearance slip away...

    I look forward to watching EVERY GAME of this season - Danny Ainge and Celtics Ownership have given the fans a great 4 yr mini-dynasty and now we get to enjoy year 5 !

    A 66 game schedule gives the Celtics a better chance than ever and Ainge's aggressive off season bargain shopping has the Celtics bench looking stronger than last years

    LET THE GAMES BEGIN !!!!!!!!!

    Exactly, we are much better than many think.  The big three are still very good.  Our two new power forwards are good. Jeff Green may suprise if healthy.  The rookies are liked by Doc and that is important. We have a good backup point.  Jo and Daniels could give us something good.  But we will get to see if Rondo is a keeper or amesty material.

    While the big three are obviously in decline, injuries will dictate how far they can go, just like every other year since this core of players came together.

    If Rondo had not been injured in the play offs, things may have been different. Wade's take down of Rondo should have been a flagrant foul.

    Scoring comes and goes, but defense can be brought every night (except during back to back to back games).

    Love the Clips. Did you know that when Boston was going through it's 22yr hiatus as being a joke, Laker fans called us the Clips of the east??

    I'll take that now!

    Bleed green.

    Nice non-foul pic, but it still is grating that zebras [sic] stole the game.

    john wall, stephen curry, blake griffin, to name three...and, yes, i know griffin ain't going anywhere now that they've added paul. but paul and howard are not jordan and jabbar, so this is not the end of days.

    OK, as for the "mini dynasty" talk....they won the championship in year one (absolutely crushed the Lakers)......year two, best record in the league until KG gets hurt and is lost for the year....still went to game 7 in Eastern Semi's.....healthy KG probably means another Finals appearance (and probably another title since the C's were clearly still the dominant team before KG's injury).....year three, start out with the best record yet again....team suffers injuries and goes into a funk....then astonishes everyone as they go all the way to the Finals only to lose on the road in game 7....they lost Perk in game 6, then led almost the entire way in the final game ....questionable officiating has been debated ever since...last year the team was blown up by Danny....went one game farther than the Lakers.....now in season 5....still a viable contender though no longer a dominant team in the long run.....so, that's not a bad run all in all.....I have certainly enjoyed this renaissance...!!
