For the Boston Celtics, I am uncertain what the future will bring. Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett may only have one or two more years left in them to play. Rajon Rondo and Kendrick Perkins will definitely have more. Maybe the team will also see more from Nate Robinson and Glen Davis. Rasheed Wallace may only have another year or so left in him.
Keep in mind what happened in the 2009-2010 season. The Celtics started with a good record of 23-5, but somewhere after Christmas 2009, the green machine started falling apart. The team had just forgotten how to win, as well as accumulate some injuries. They ended up with a 50-32 record for the season, and made the playoffs in the #4 position in the East. Then they started playing again. Along the way to the Finals, they eliminated the #1 and #2 teams in the NBA - being the Cleveland Cavs, and the Orlando Magic. They were finally finished off by the #3 team, in game #7 of the Finals series, by 4 points.
It was entertaining, and it was awesome - and would have only been made better if they had won their 18th Championship. I look forward to next year, as well as all the up and coming years that the Celtics play. I could not have summarized a better year than the way the team at the CelticsLife blog have...
