Do you honestly see the Celtics making another championship run? Why, or why not?

Provided they stay committed to winning and keep their nucleus of Gordon, DeAndre Jordan, Aminu, and Bledsoe, I say he'll be a Clipper for at least the next 8-10 years. Blake seems like a loyal guy, and I would love to see him turn the Clippers around into a bonafide playoff team.

They've already got talent and a Blake's really changed their culture, I could see them in the playoffs next year.

Absolutely, but it has to be within the next two years.

Why? There's amazing balance on this team with veterans and young guys that know their roles, are content with them, and are capable of executing. It doesn't seem like anyone has their own agendas and there seems to be a really strong culture on this team to go along with a good front office and ownership that's committed to winning.

They've got all the elements for a championship team:
Rondo - great distributor, good defender, perfect point guard on this kind of team despite his abysmal shooting ability
Allen - keeps the other team's D honest at all times and has ice water in his veins
Pierce - the go to scorer and one of the most complete offensive players in the game
KG - the defensive enforcer and still plenty capable of providing offense when he needs to. One of the best mid range Js out there.
Shaq, Perkins, JO, Erden - tons and tons of size, no shortage of enforcers, and as we've seen, big man depth is crucial in the playoffs.
Big Baby, Nate Robinson, Delonte West, Marquis Daniels - all very good bench guys that can provide a spark when needed. Delonte West will be big for this team if he can return to 100% by the playoffs.

I just watched their game against K-State, both guys showed they had multi-talented skills, even good passing abilities and court vision. I don't think they'll be stars either but both are definitely NBA-bound.

That Thomas Robinson kid had a great game too after his tough week.

I would keep DeMar DeRozan, Jerryd Bayless and Ed Davis.

I think Bargnani could fetch a decent player and he'd be a nice complimentary piece for an already good team. He's worn out his welcome in Toronto in my opinion and has shown that he can't be the number one (and probably not the number 2 option) on a good team.

Everyone else on the roster is expendable.

Pretty unbelievable what Robinson went through in the past month. I was really happy to see him have a good game today.

I think there'll be one in the next decade. My best bet would be Rondo, Westbrook, or Wall (I think it's easier to get one with steals rather than blocks).

When it is all said and done who will be better, Carmelo Anthony or Kevin Durant? Do you judge better by stats, rings, or both?
