Re: Does anyone else feel the Celtics roster is better than given credit?
The team has assets because of the picks but it's not built for immediate success of any kind. Rondo is coming off ACL recovery and with the team in "win in three years" mode the organization may even pressure him to take longer than necessary to come back. Jeff Green will score because there's no one else to do it but this team will need a 25 ppg guy and he's more like 17. The healthy players are all young and young teams with no superstar don't win. And lastly, there's no coach. There will be one hired before season starts of course but it's tough to say what the plan is when you don't have a planner.
