Now don't start cussing me out right away, Bostonites.
The Celtics are a great team, but let's face it, my baby niece could compete in the Eastern Conference. If you stuck the Boston Celtics into the Western Conference, then they MIGHT get the 4th or 5th seed.
Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen are no doubt the best Big-3 in the league. However, the rest of the team is a bunch of guys named Joe. Anyone that doesn't live in Boston couldn't name two players on the Boston Celtics other than their Big-3.
Signing Sam Cassell was a great move, but it only put ANOTHER FOSSIL on the team.
If you were to put the Lakers, or another Western Conference contender into the East, they would probably be the #1 seed.
So, once again, I apologize to all Bostoners, but the Boston Celtics are not as good as you think.
