The Boston Celtics are arguably the Miami Heat's biggest foes. They hate each other, and the fact that Ray Allen will now be playing in South Beach only adds fuel to an already colossal fire.
Boston added even more talent than the Heat and will have Avery Bradley back, a premier defender in the league ready to take on any superstar around the league, especially Dwyane Wade it seems.
The Heat may have snagged Allen, but the Celtics reloaded with the likes of Courtney Lee, Jason Terry, and drafted rookies Fab Melo and Jared Sullinger.
Doc Rivers has got his guys foaming at the mouth at the mention of the Miami Heat.
However, despite all this, the Heat still have the upper hand. They have knocked the Celtics out of the playoffs the last two years and the two are likely to meet up once again this year.
This is really shaping out to be one of the most intense rivalries in the league.
Every game that these teams play is played with playoff intensity. The Heat were swept by Boston last year, but clearly that didn't make a difference come playoff time. However, if they really want to send a message, it has to be them who sweeps the Celtics this season.
