Although the Boston Celtics have been lackluster in the preseason, the 2012-13 season will be anything but boring.
The Eastern Conference powerhouse will attempt to reclaim its throne from the Miami Heat, but not without a couple of bumps along the way. The East is no longer the weaker conference, especially with the recent signings over the summer. Andrew Bynum, Deron Williams and Joe Johnson have all played a part in increasing the competition.
With the help of its secondary and a rookie named Jared Sullinger, the Celtics will prevail. The team's mix of elite veterans and talented newcomers will propel them to the top, even if it's not apparent yet.
