In response to scubber's comment: Stats can be misleading depending how you look at it. If I count correctly, 11 out of last 16 titles have #1 pick player on those teams and maybe only one team of al more »

I just don't see us acquiring TWO superstar players at this point. I'm hoping we can acquire one but even that might be difficult. I think acquiring better players first might be our best play right more »

Too many people are looking at us getting swept and concluding there's not much to be happy about with the Celtics. They are not happy with our playoff performance over four games. I, too, am disapp more »

I am disappointed that we got swept in the first round. But I'm also ashamed of some posters here. I'm pleased with the season the Celtics had - read SEASON. This has been a long 86 game season with more »

Basically, although we qualified for the playoffs, we are NOT a playoff team.
