not the way to END a piece like this by admitting we are not a TOP team

Keep thinking that the Celtics aren’t for real, but don’t be surprised when they take out a top team.

makes little sense to me.

Beat,

I don't think that is what he meant.

I think he meant,

Keep thinking (wrongly) that the Celtics aren't for real . . .

You cannot get the doubters to change their minds. They will think what they want, but he is telling them not to be surprised . . .

because we don't have a "star".

the mantra has been you need two or more "stars" to be a serious contender in the NBA.

watching the SA-Clev game last night all I heard was how the Spurs might be able to catch GS. not even McHale mentioned that with the Cav's losing Boston takes over the top spot in the east NOW.

we get no respect, which is GREAT...put that chip on every players shoulder going into the playoffs....should make it fun.

I doubt any teams really want to play us, to be honest. Even if they beat us, we will beat the hell out them with our top end defenders.

I hope we stay healthy and Brad continues to nail down our rotation as the regular season comes to an end.

Lets hope we get that top seed in the east as well, even though the media will only say Cleveland was resting players, etc.

I think our biggest question mark going into the post-season relates to our rotation and having at least 2 reliable scorers that can come in and put points on the board.  That mean that KO must play well but I do not know who else can be counted on.  Smart is not a scorer so Jaylen brown could play a big role.  Also look for Gerald Green to bring veteran leadership to the table if Brad actually uses him.

Aside from that the Celtics need to up their defensive pressure because when shots are not falling you need stops at the other end.
