Default Celtics Were Vastly Overrated This Offseason

This team is a contender to win the East? I don't see it.

Youre telling me the Knicks or the Nets are considerably better?

Lee & Terry have been disappointments so far. Ray Allen on the other hand is tearing it up in Miami.

Nets are the 2nd best team in the East imo.

Good thing the season doesn't end in December. The Celtics were even worse at this point last season and ended up having the best (or 2nd best, don't remember) record in the East post-All Star break.

Terry has been solid, 11.7ppg on 48%. Good for Ray Allen doing well in Miami but statistically he's only a little better.

Agreed. I don't think the Cs are better than Miami but I figure the record will improve and they're still over .500, certainly not a bad team.

It's only 5 weeks into the season. Boston didn't look so hot in December 2011 either, but they were 1 win away from the Finals. Seasons are 82 games long, not 20.

Man, what do you have against the Celtics? You already ran your mouth off about this in another thread, it's laughable that you think they got overrated. You're talking about a team that for the last few years has routinely started off slow, looking old etc., then spring to life come finals time.

They have reason to be optimistic, they lost Allen, they gained courtney lee, Jeff Green, Chris Wilcox, Jason Terry, Jarrod Sullinger, and Avery Bradley will soon be in the mix too. All these additions are an upgrade to Allen, considering they lost in game 7 to the Heat, they are still contenders IMO.

Yet they play years under their age when they make the finals each year...Comon, when are people going to start respecting this team? They prove everyone wrong every year with the too old crap.

I could really care less how the media rates a team. Celtics got a lot of new players learning to play together and learn team defense. I'm still looking forward to Avery Bradley coming back, but I know Dwyane Wade isnt though.
