How can we tell until mid-season? On paper, I'd take the Celts big 3 but Phx came 2nd in the west again last year so until we see how successful Boston are, it's a tough call.

I'm taking the Celts. Garnett is a monster offensively AND defensively unlike Amare who doesn't even have a post up game and relies on Nash for most of his points. Pierce can score more efficiently, get rebounds and get his team mates involved. Also a pretty clutch player, couldn't showcase it cause most of the Celts games weren't close. Of course of one his few clutch shots came against the Wiz...

Allen is a exceptional three point shooter and will get a lot of open looks from posts up from KG.

Nash has been doing his stuff for 2 years. Allen, Pierce, and KG have been doing it the majority of their careers.

Celtics' big three are even better than the Suns' at personal skills(Especially scoring), but the team-chemistry is much worse.

Chemistry shouldn't be involved here. It's based on talent. Wait till the season starts then you can compare them using chemistry. Until then, the Celts trio is better than the Suns trio.

I think I prefer the Suns combination, for one reason, you have a PG, a hustle guy and a Low post player. A really good true PG is hard to find this days. If you replace Allen with a guy like Williams or CP3 maybe Ill pick Celtics trio.

I'd take Nash and two above average players any day over 3 scoring monsters that can't really pass or make plays for others.

It's alot easier to guard 3 guys that look to score first than it is against a team of Nash Amare and Marion.

I also don't see KG as a better player than Nash, but that's just my opinion.
