Team Name: Boston Celtics
Last Year’s Record: 82-0 (50-32 due to officiating blunders)
Key Losses: Scal, Finley, TA???
Key Additions: Shaq, Harangody, Bradley, West?
1. What Significant Moves were made during the off-season?
Alot of people question the Shaq signing, or just plain out minimize it. With Boston’s already solid defense Shaq will just be the icing on the cake. Like Perk, Shaq moves like a stalled tugboat. The range of KG in the post will close Shaq more into the paint and significantly zero in on his basket responsibility. Cleveland never had the personnel to utilize Shaq’s interior presence. Mark my words, he will dominate the hell out of ground zero this season.
2. What are the team’s biggest strengths?
Defense. And too much depth at guard, quality players will be fighting for minutes.
3. What are the team’s biggest weaknesses?
SF depth. If Daniels rebounds this season it will be less of an issue, but without the lackluster effort there is no real relief for Pierce. Unless they plan to swing Allen into some SF floor time which he has proven he can maintain.
4. What are the goals for this team?
Title or bust. LA we are coming to take our trophy back to Boston. Behind winning Boston’s veterans need to develop Bradley and Harangody into winners, they along with Rondo, Perk, and Davis have a decade or more to lead this team when the Big 3 move onto retirement.
5. Biggest surprise of the 2010-11 season that no one will see coming in Boston?
Glen Davis has spent all off season in Vegas working out and building cardio with some of MMAs top trainers. He has trimmed significant weight and will prowl like a cheetah on the court. He will emerge this season as KG unquestionable replacement for PF. AYO Big Baby.
