With the 2012-13 season in the books and the NBA playoffs underway, now seems like a good time to analyze the Boston Celtics' roller coaster regular season.

In January, everyone once again counted Boston out. Then came the injuries, losing streaks, trade rumors and Chinese League pickups. It was a wild time.

But the Celtics went on a memorable 14-4 stretch between February and March, somehow catapulting over the .500 mark and eventually locking up  the no. 7 seed.

Some of Boston's roster players drove that postseason push. Others, unfortunately, hindered the cause.

The following reviews and grades detail each Boston Celtics player's regular season, based on a rubric consisting of expectations, potential, impact and overall performance.

The report cards will move from the bottom of the depth chart up to the most important current rotation. The grading scale ranges from A+ to F.

 

All statistics obtained from NBA.com/stats, ESPN.com, and Basketball-Reference.comPlease note that the writer is also a college English teacher, so it is in his nature to grade a bit harshly. Extra credit for anyone who comments below.
