Cousin Kevin

'm the Big Ticket
In Celtic green
The nastiest PF
You could ever meet
I'll stick dunks in your face
And tread on your feet

Boston now has, unquestionably, the top triumvirate in the East. On paper, no one can match Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. Given just how mediocre this conference is - hell, we won the damn thing last year, and we probably wouldn't have gotten past Houston if the late 70s alignment was still in play - the Celtics now join us, Detroit and Chicago as one of the favorites. However, they still have no proven point guard, despite Rajon Rondo showing flashes last season, and their bench of Tony Allen (coming off of knee surgery), Leon Powe, Brian Scalabrine (heh), and rookies Glen Davis, Gabe Pruitt and Brandon Wallace might scare a MAC team. Maybe.

For all of Boston's sound and fury this summer, the only thing signified is that when the sun sets on the 2007-08 season, the Western monarch has one more sacrificial lamb to choose from.
