Boston Celtics: 3 Ways KG and the Truth Will Guide the C's into the Playoffs

Two-thirds of the Big Three return for another run.

NBA tipoff is seven weeks away, and Boston Celtics fans can't wait. 

That's because the Green have reloaded after a tough Game 7 Eastern Conference Finals loss to the Miami Heat, and they now look as talented and deep as any Celtics team since 2008-09 (except maybe the 2010 team that came within four points of a championship).  

They've added youth and athleticism to their bench.  They've added scoring and depth in the backcourt. They may even enjoy some addition by subtraction from the departure of the set-slowing SG Ray Allen, who relied too heavily on screens and left the offense stagnant.

They've still got PG Rajon Rondo, one of the best floor generals in the league.

Most importantly, they return their best defender and scorer in Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

With KG and Pierce rested after last season's run (and Pierce's sprained MCL fully healed), the Celtics are poised to make a run at one of the top seeds in the Eastern Conference.

Let's take a look at how KG, Pierce, and the Cs look heading into next season.
