    What Is The Celtics Future In The East With All These Young Talented Teams.....

    It's going to be difficult.  Next year, the Celtics should still be a contender, but after that who knows.  The Bulls have Rose and solid young core of players around him who will only get better.  Plus they will always be one step away from pulling that Paul Gasol-Kevin Garnett type trade for an impact player, that will turn their good team into a great one.   The Knicks are going to be a contender with Stodimier and Anthony for years to come and they'll always have the money and market to attract another big name or two.   Then you have the Heat.  Lebron, Wade, and Bosh playing together for the next five years is scary.   And who knows if the Magic will be able to keep Dwight Howard, a player who hasn't even maxed his potential yet.  If Howard gets that true second superstar to play alongside him, watch out.  

    Rondo is going to be the key to the Celtics rebuilding.  If he keeps developing like he has the Celtics will be in good shape.   And maybe even guys like Pierce, Garnett, and Allen, will be willing to take back-up roles in three years for a reduced price, allowing us to trade for or attract another young All-Star.  Having a bench filled with Hall of Famers is never a bad thing.

    The Celtic's future is now. It's all about winning #18. At this point IMO 3-4 years down the road is not a concern.

    I think this is partly why Danny made the trade for Green. He is going to build the Celtics of the future around Rondo and Green.

    As for the original post, it is going to be extremely difficult to be championship contenders consistently for the next few years. The Heat, Bulls, and Knicks will all be able to be contenders for years to come, and I expect one of them to add either Howard, D-Will, or CP3. Wow...

    Future is really hard to tell – I am suspecting we will be more aggressive than we were in the post Bird era.   

    However my thoughts are only on 2011.

    If Boston is going to build their future around Rondo and Green then the future is going to be average for you guys. However, I don't think that this will bethe case as clearly neither of these two will get Boston to the promised land.

    At least we have point guard settled.  There is going to be plenty of great young talent that will probably leave their current teams once their contracts are up.

    1.  Dwight Howard - Orlando will lose him like Shaq.  Probably end up as a Laker, Knick, or Brooklyn Net. 

    2.  Blake Griffin - Great PF, but he'll probably bolt the Clippers if smart.  I'm guessing he stays in LA but becomes a Laker.

    3.  Kevin Love - Old school type player that can give up 20 points 15 rebounds on a given night.  With the Timberwolves history of championships, Love might want to hit a big market.

    4.  Eric Gordon - Another Clipper.  This exciting shooting guard is a solid 20 ppg player.  Would be a nice addition to any team.

    What is the future of any team that has some really good players and then those players decline or retire?  Ummmm they become the Cavaliers.  You need look no further than the Pistions, the Spurs when Duncan goes, the Lakers when Kobe goes, etc.

    How can this even be a question?

    I agree, the future is now.

    After the big three ride off into the sun set, the Celtics will be lottery contenders.
