An 82-game NBA season means a lot more basketball for us to watch. However, it also makes for a much longer and enduring season for the players than last season.

Month by month, even a team as deep as the Boston Celtics will experience some setbacks and difficulties. The later the months get into the season, the more important they will be for the Celtics. If they are going to get the veterans extra rest, it may have to come earlier in the year.

The Eastern Conference is going to be a dogfight. On paper, Miami and Boston may be a stride ahead of the rest, but over 82 games, that may not matter so much.

Chemistry will be an issue early on, as the Celtics have brought in many new parts. Minutes will have to be sacrificed here and there for the betterment of the team and the health of the major components. 

Boston may never look like the best team in the league during the season, but as we learned last season, it'll always be in the conversation with this core.
