Led by Rajon Rondo and Doc Rivers, the Boston Celtics will win the Atlantic Division next season.
Despite not making it to the NBA Finals, the Celtics had an impressive season in 2012. Not only did they prove to doubters that they were a real contender, but they also made it far with a crippled team.
As the Big Three era winds down, Rondo prepares to become the new leader of the Celtics team. Boston will continue to dominate their division, as the Knicks, Sixers and Nets fail to provide adequate competition.
These are the reasons why the Celtics will easily sit atop the Atlantic Division in the 2012-13 season.
