its still too early to tell.. as a fan i think they have played better than anyone expected so far.. i mean i thought they would be good but had no idea they would be this good.. its kinda dissapointing that they lost to the bobcats and wizards recently.. because those are the games your suppose to win..

a really good surprise has been their bench.. i mean i thought their bench would be decent maybe a little lacking.. but they have stepped up big and contributed in big games.. kevin garnett has been great so far bringing his leadership and intensity to the team.. ray allen has has spurts where he has played great and hit key shots like those 2 game winners.. i still believe paul pierce is the key player for the team.. hes is a great all around player and we need to be able to ride his back in those close games.. for the most part of the season we have been able to do that and he in my opinion has been the teams mvp..

now are they ready to win the championship yet? i believe that they still have a lot of work to do.. their schedule has been pretty favorable so far and they have done a good job at winnin games they should be able to win.. they will definitely make it to the east finals and probably face detroit.. that is what their first true test will be to see if they are ready to win a championship.. its important for them to keep trying to develop the best chemistry possible and for their young players to learn to step up big..

an important thing will be to not let tryin to win 70 games get to their head.. they have to take it one game at a time and not let their record get to their heads.. especially come playoff time, your record goes out the window.. just look at what happened to dallas last year.. they should be able to go far this year in the playoffs and might even be able to get a championship (as a celtics fan im rootin for them!!!).. but then again this season might prepare them to win it all next season.. nevertheless this is the start of an exciting time to be a celtics fan =]

no they are not that good. They lost to the wizards and Majic twice and the Bobcats once. If one piece of the "Big 3" are missing they are eternally screwed unless someone steps up and plays consistently

They are much deeper than most people think.
Rajon Rondo has developed into an exceptional point guard.
Sure, he can't shoot but he's an amazing distributor and his inside game is amazing for a PG. Did you see him fake out Dwight Howard the last game?

Posey is also a great player people have been sleeping on. He's an amazing defender and a great 3 point shooter.

Celtics haven't been playing great as of late. Paul Pierce needs to step it up, he tends to fade in the 4th nowadays. He's usually a great 4th quarter finisher.

Ray Allen has been slacking too, though he is has been a great 4th quarter player as of late, he hasn't been a great scorer lately.

Tony Allen is garbage though, I'm sorry.

I really want Ryan Gomes back on the team, I hope he resigns with us after this year.
