    What do you think will happen in the up coming season guys...I think the Celtics with the original Big 3, Rondoooooo, The O'Neal boys, Big Baby, Kryptonate, LeBrons stepdad, a fit Marquis Daniels and their 3 rookies.. Avery Bradley(the best defensive player in this years draft) Luke Harangody(just like Scalabrine, but with talent) and Semih (Automatic) Erden, and also Perk to come back around All-Star will take some stopping despite all the talk of them being too old.

    think again.. lol... well, lakers beat rockets last night 112-110 with Steve Blake scoring 3-pointer 18 seconds before buzzer... but i think that celtics and lakers will meet again in NBA Finals this year.. but with different winner... Miami have great individuals.. but they aren't much of a team, yet..

    I know Wade was not fully fit but really last nights Miami team looked identical to the Cavaliers with Lebron doing his thing while everyone else just tried to fit in around him, there was no concept of a cohesive team unit and they are going to have to work really hard to change that...but even if they do this I still think come playoff time they will come up short against the Celtics simply because they have no one at the point, even with Mike Miller back that will be able to check Rondo and they also do not have any depth in middle with only Chris Bosh able to provide any resistance to Bostons big men of KG, Shaq, Jermaine, Baby and a fit again Perkins.:50:

    Yeah, Miami's '* three' only played 4 minutes together in preseason... and lebron start scoring after paul pierce went to locker room because of injury.. last night rondo had 17 assists... amazing.. but miami will improve their offence, when they spend more time together.. also, lot of people say that lebron came to wade's team.. but last night it looked like lebron is boss in miami..

    I always support the Denver Nuggets, mainly because I have always loved Carmelo Anthony

    I don't worry about the loss to the Cavs because this is what Boston have been doing for the last 3 seasons, they will dominate the best teams in the league one night and then lose to some of the worst the next, I think all us Celtics fans realise the team will probably sleepwalk their way to 55-60 wins in the regular season and a division title and then we see the real Cs in the playoffs, Its just the price we pay having a veteran team who are not going to exert themselves for a great postseason record.:champ:come finals time.:50:

    Tied NBA record for assists in a triple double (24 with Isiah Thomas who got his in a double overtime game) he also tied the NBA record for assists in first 3 games of a season (50 joint with John Stockton):50:

    Think it will probably be Kevin Durrant for MVP myself, but I think Rondo will have a real shot at defensive POY.:50:

    im the same! I think they have a better team than last season, Al harrington looks to be a good addition. Ty lawson is also an exciting prospect, just hope they can hold on to melo.

    They have virtually no chance of keeping Melo...I think the best you can hope for is they get a mix of one or two good players and a couple of draft picks in return...The worst is he does a Lebron and walks away at the end of his deal.

    at least i got my ticket for the celtics trip to miami in a few weeks time and this will be a different heat this time as they will be more settled as a team and if they remain unbeaten then they will be right up for this game
