For a team with sights set on a trip to the NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics have had a rough start to the 2012-13 season. A 3-3 start to the season, with home losses to Milwaukee and Philadelphia, was probably not what the team, or most fans, envisioned for the Celtics.
The good news is that it is a full NBA regular season. Last year's lockout impacted, abridged 66-game schedule is gone, and in its place is the traditional 82-game regular season schedule.
That leaves more time for the Celtics to make adjustments, get healthy and ultimately come together to form a squad that can make a run at the NBA Finals.
The bad news is that the Knicks are already 4-0. The Atlantic Division is tougher, with both Brooklyn and Philadelphia now performing like potential playoff teams. Even the Toronto Raptors have a roster that could gel as the season progresses and mesh into a tough opponent.
Two weeks into the season the Celtics are a mix of good, bad and in-between. How does each individual player grade at this early juncture? Let's take a look.
