5? Let's look at it objectively and not just as a fan. If they do meet, both teams will match up rather nicely. 7 game series all the way. Plus, Stern knows how to make money.

Seriously where the hell do the Celtics get all this money to keep signing players? Nice signing. Their depth reminds me of an Eastern conference version of the Spurs, but they have a lot of young vets

I don't get the need for this...and I also don't get how many exemptions a team can get. What the hell was that lockout for?

Any backcourt will have nightmares when facing the Celtics this season.

I heard rumours of him earlier during the off-season possibly joining the Cavs. Thank fuck that didn't happen.

6'5 here

Terry was listed as 6'1 for over a decade... I'm not buying that he grew an inch in his mid-late 30's. Barbosa is definitely not anywhere near 6'4 as Billups is taller than him and in 90 percent of listings on the web Barbosa is 6'3.

I never remember Terry as anything but 6'2. Barbosa supposedly grew close to an inch and they don't generally change heights. Please show us the 6'4" listing for Chauncey?

Ray Allen will be missed by the Celtics. He is as good of a shooter as they come. He will flourish in Miami with Lebron.

Lee is 6'5 and Barbosa is 6'3. As from Terry i'd say he's closer to 6'1 but listed at 6'2 everywhere. I'm lost on why Barbosa wouldn't pick the lakers over boston? bradley, terry, lee and rondo is going to be crowded but never can have to much depth

That's awful value to Atlanta. I see Celtics having to give up at least one of their young draft picks and a future pick
