This photo of Rajon Rondo in game three of the Eastern conference finals in this years playoffs, showed the fight the Celtics had in the NBA Playoffs. A team that was said to be to old and supposed to have no fight in them to make it out of the second round of the playoffs against the league MVP LeBron James and the Cavaliers but the Celtics fought past them and the Magic and were a game a way from winning a 18th championship.
Last year was a fight, this year is a war. A war against: LeBron, Bosh, and Wade in Miami. Rose, Boozer, and Noah in Chicago. The Atlanta will be back and ready for competition, and the young Bucks are an improved team and are going to put there young talent into the playoffs with Michael Redd and Andrew Bogut healthy and of course brandon Jennings. Orlando will be there .
All these changes in the East across the board besides in Boston. The Celtics decided to keep the band together once again but wait, Kendrick Perkins is out untill early 2011 with the knee injury that kept him out of game 7. So the C's decide to pick up Jermaine O'neal from free agency at the time when he is starting to get his swag back and he is a healthy player now.
The Celtics lost Tony Allen to free angency (Memphis) "Tony I wish you luck". With Tony Allens departure the C's lost a pivotal bench player. Today the Celtics signed Von Wafer to a 1 year deal all money garenteed. Von Wafer was a bench scorer for the Rockets now he will be coming off the bench along with a back court with Nate Robinson and Marquis Daniels who is getting another chance to prove himself after injuries and losing his palying time to Tony Allen.
Along with this backcourt of guys the C's are in trade talks with the Portland Trail Blazer to possibly acquire Rudy fernandez. The C's also found a replacement for Tom thibodeau signing Lawrence Frank former Nets coach.
Well that somes up my article i cant wait for the 2010-2011 NBA season.
