Can the Celtics Win it All?


It came as no surprise that the Boston Celtics would become one of the best teams in the NBA this season. Adding Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen will do that for you. But it was hard to guess they would be this good. They are still playing without a reliable point guard, there’s little talent on the bench, and the three superstars (Garnett, Allen, and Paul Pierce) must constantly keep their egos in check for this to work. Yet, here they are, with the best record in the league and the look of a champion.

It’s always a great story when individual talent yields to a team concept for outstanding results, and the Celtics seem to be following the lead of the NFL’s New England Patriots as selfless champions. They are the frontrunners now and they’re going to have to finish as strong as they’ve started, but that’s not going to be easy.

The three stars are all over 30 years old and will need to remain healthy while playing heavy minutes. The Detroit Pistons are deeper and have championship experience and the Cleveland Cavaliers won the Eastern Conference last year with the same roster the have now, including perhaps the most talented player in the NBA – LeBron James.

The Celtics will need luck, and they will need to find a way to keep enough gas in the tank to carry them through the long, demanding play-offs. It’s a lot to ask, but the Celtics have as good of a chance to win the title as anyone.
