Boston Celtics

Celtic Pride?

Raise the 17th banner. Map out the parade rout. Carve a shamrock-shaped diamond for the championship rings.

“Ladies and gentlemen, your 2008 NBA champions, the Boston Celtics!”

The way the off-season has gone, it’s nothing short of a miracle that the Boston Celtics have somehow turned themselves from laughingstock to championship contenders overnight – and they didn’t even have to rely on ping-pong balls to do it.

When the C’s acquired Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to join forces with resident Celtics superstar Paul Pierce, Boston – for all intents and purposes – now boasts of a formidable trio the likes of which haven’t been seen since the days of the Bird-McHale-Parish troika.

Beantown must be rejoicing.

They have one of the best shooters in the league in Ray Allen, one of the most underrated superstars in the league in Paul Pierce and one of the top 50 basketball players EVER in Kevin Garnett.

These three have what it takes to go all the way! Who cares about the rest of the roster, right?

What Boston Celtics Will We See Next Year?

by: Kyle Benson

Its the 2nd year in a row the Celtics have missed the playoffs. What has happened to this storied franchise? 16 NBA championships all time, but they can’t make it into the playoffs two years in a row. Even though they are one of the worst teams in the league, ending the season with a horrid record of 25-57, star players Paul Pierce and Al Jefferson have guaranteed the playoffs for the 2007-2008 season. So what I’m asking myself is, what Celtics will we see next year, the dynasty from the 80’s, or the car crash of the 2000’s?
