Re: Boston Celtics: How good can they really be?
This team is at best, slightly better than last year's team. Bulls and Magic figure to be about -40 Ws between the two of them. By default, all the teams that were top 6 in the East not named the Magic/Bulls should get about +2/3 wins this year.
Celts probably win somewhere between 52-56 games. They're good enough to be a fairly distant 2nd to the Heat. Only way they can take a series against them is if any one of Bosh/Lebron/Wade can't play due to injury.
