The Boston Celtics are at a pivotal time in franchise history. An apparent changing of the guard is near on the horizon, but an old group of veterans simply refuses to hang up their jerseys so soon.
Over the course of an NBA season, individuals rise and fall with the times.
This article aims to examine exactly which Celtics will improve this season, and which will stagnate or regress. The players are arranged in order of how much room they have for improvement, starting with those who have already peaked and ending with those who have the highest ceiling.
Note that just because more players are listed as “Will Not Improve” does not mean that Boston is a worse team than last year. The 2012-13 squad is deeper, possesses more athleticism and better prospects for long-term success.
Without further ado, here’s a breakdown of how much each individual Celtics player will improve from last year.
