  • Another reason the Celtics won't do it this year...Rasheed Wallace is clearly under the influence of many, many drugs: Rasheed Wallace believes that this season's edition of the Celtics could go down in history as the best team ever. "I think we can get that Bulls record," Wallace told Connecticut News on Friday, referring to the 72-10 mark that Chicago posted during the 1995-96 season.

  • i thought that the one person on this site that talked the most nonsense was Martiniman. Until you said that Orlando is better than the Celtics and you insinuated that David Lee can even come close to carrying Garnetts Jockstrap.....CONGRATULATIONS!

  • You clearly didn't pay attention to anything I said. Did I once say that David Lee was as good or better than Garnett? Absolutely not. I said he was blowing by KG with ease. Look at the tape, he was blowing by KG to the rack constantly. I was making a comment on his lack of defensive mobility for which he is usually flawless. How you came to conclude that this means David Lee is the next KG is beyond me. I also said Orlando is good, and that if Boston ISN'T healthy, Orlando is better. I also said 10 times that if Boston IS healthy, they are as good as anybody. Don't be mad that my debate made too much sense.

  • I paid attention to everything you said.You are lying, you didnt say "10 times" Boston is as good as anybody when healthy. You didnt even say it one time. You said if healthy they would give anybody a "run for their money, but the more i think about it, they are old"....and i DID SAY, within the first 10 seconds of my fancast, a HEALTHY CELTICS TEAM. So it is your response that makes no sense. Best starting Five in the East, Best bench in the East, when healthy....you can also talk about the Celtics getting older, and thats fine. guess what, Rondo (who is arguably the best PG in the East), is also a year older (and better) same with Davis.

  • Stop the presses. Rondo is arguably the best point guard in the East? I think that title belongs to young Mr. Derrick Rose in Chicago. Yes, he may need others to take tests for him, but he's better than Rondo with a hand tied behind his back. As far as the Celtics go, yes they do have both an impressive starting five and bench, but health for them will be a question mark all season long. Age is a bitch and it creeps up fast especially after suffering major injuries. Not just for Garnett, but Allen also. He's been nursing those old legs for the last couple of seasons. The Celtics offense should be OK, but the defense is where I see the fall off. That is a big problem as the East has gotten more explosive players the last couple of seasons and high paced games won't suit this Celtics club. As with the Magic, Cavs and even the Hawks the Celtics have as good as chance as any to represent the East in the finals. Though it may be the worst chance out of those four, because of the injuries and their ages.

  • Wait....did someone just say Rose better than Rondo with his hands tied behind his back???? you are a freaking joke.....Did you even watch the playoffs last year???? Rondo almost AVERAGED a triple double over ROSE....he peed all over him....19 pts, 11 assts, 9 rebs (2 turnovers) per game!!!!! Pay close attention to the assists and turnovers in that series.....Rose was a turnover waiting to happen

  • As Rondo ran away from the frightening Kirk Hinrich to keep from getting a beat down from a goofy looking white boy. Rondo while decent, has far less talent than one Derrick Rose. Rondo couldn't carry a team like Rose had to in his rookie season. The game is very easy when you have so much talent surrounding you, what Rose does not have. Rondo would be run out of ton passing to the likes of Joakim Noah, Brad Miller and crew. It's not a matter of numbers, it's simply a matter of really knowing the game and talent. With the young Brandon Jennings now running in Milwaukee he may now be behind at least two other point guards for best in the East.

  • asv RONDO RAN AWAY from Kirk????UMMMMM....IS that the same Rondo that Bitch slapped 7 footer Brad Miller and Miller did nothing about it??? That Rondo??? Rose=Potential to be a great scorer....Rondo=Great POINT GUARD

  • Yes a bitch slap that he immediately showed the oh crap look after it happened. A sucker puch doesn't display toughness, it shows how much a punk you really are. Anbody can get a nice bitch slap in coming from the side. Why not try that face to face. Big Brad Hillbilly would use Rondo for a toothpick. Yes, Brandon Jennings will end up running all over Rondo in the years to come. Rose=potential to be ALL STAR. Rondo=only good until the great players are on the floor. Next your going to tell me Rondo is better than Dennis Johnson in Celtics history.
