Biggest Questions Facing Boston Celtics After Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett Era

The Boston Celtics lost something far greater than just a pair of Hall of Fame hardwood talents, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, and a masterful sideline tactician, Doc Rivers, this summer.

This franchise, as proud and historically wealthy as any that's ever graced the realm of professional sports, lost its identity.

The addition plans for the banner-rich rafters of the TD Bank Garden have been scrapped. Even Boston's six-year playoff run has crept dangerously close to the chopping block.

With only a baby-faced coach, Brad Stevens, and a hobbled frontman, Rajon Rondo, to lead them, the Celtics will enter next season with a laundry list of question marks and a smattering of salvageable parts.

Which ones should be spared from the scrap yard, and which should have started filling out their unemployment paperwork already?

Read on to find out these answers and those to all of the biggest questions facing this franchise in the post-Pierce, Garnett and Rivers era.
