Default So who's scared of the Celtics....

Now that the radio has apparently confirmed it?

I for one, am officially nervous about the thought of putting together 3 NBA superstars together on the same team, regardless of how terrible their cast is, talent simply pours out of the Celtics with Garnett, Pierce and Allen. Also, the other Big 3 in the west (Spurs, Mavs, Suns) will have to play their best in order to win a playoffs series against this team.

Yeah I know there's a thread on the garnett trade already, but it would get lost in the thread anyway.

Nets and Raptor fans are very anxious now.

Knick fans must have just died of heartbreak after their playoff talk is essentially quashed.

I think the Raps could take them.

Bosh historically has monster games versus KG, Parker can defend RayRay very well, the only trouble is Pierce (Kapono will get slaughtered), but the Raps have a better centre, better bench and better PG to balance that out.

Raps in 7.

Nets are in a more precarious spot.

unlses the rookies have aged tremendously, one injury to a starter and the Nets can say hello to third in teh Atlantic

I just realized if thos trade does indeed go down, the Atlantic turns into one of the leagues power divisions.

And just last season the Atlantic was the Titanic. Now they're the next Southwest division, but with the potential to be even better (if Zeke gets his act up).

I'm hoping that the Rockets will be able to match offensively and defensively against this 3 man celtics team. Put Yao on KG, T-Mac on Pierce and Battier on Allen. IF they negate each other, then we'll just have Scola score on layups only :)

From Boston's side:

Rondo plays incredible defense, he could slow TJ/Calderon for 40 mins, while Telfair gets eaten alive for the other 8.

Ray Allen will get lots of looks because PP and KG will get doubled quite a bit.

Paul Pierce needs to get in the lane against Kapono and use his size advantage on him.

KG can still abuse Bosh as well, the road goes both ways.

Perkins just needs to play big and bang aroudn as much as he can.

How will Ford and Calderon be stopped out of curiosity? Rondo?

I'm not picking a side, but just answer that....and don't go "Who's gonna stop Pierce? Huh?" like a little gay brat.
