Celts keep getting better

The Celtics are expected to sign Marquis Daniels to a contract worth the biannual exception on Tuesday.

Sources told the Boston Herald of the agreement.

The Celtics had been trying to work a sign-and-trade with the Pacers, but nothing was reached.

Even though this isn't new news I like this pickup for Boston. Daniels should provide what T. Allen wasn't able to. Hopefully he can stay healthy. As far as the season standings go IMO Boston will take the SAS approach/win 50 something games/finish 2nd or 3rd in the East.

Fuck that, they have the shittiest bench in the top 4, and are old. Oh and the fact that you put us ahead of Orlando (deepest bench in the East) is mind blowing. Shaq won't help much imo

Homer.

Clevelands bench:

AP
Moon
Varejao
Ilgauskas
West
Gibson
Hickson
Green

Compare that to Orlando/Boston/Toronto and i wouldn't take their bench over any of them. If Lebron goes down to injury for 20+ games they'll be lucky to make the playoffs. They only go as far as LBJ takes them, moreso then any of the top 3-4 teams.

LBJ will be MVP and Finals MVP. There's no I in team unless you have Lebron.

They won't make it to the Conference finals let alone the NBA finals. But i will agree LBJ will probably be league MVP.

Boston, Cleveland, Orlando...1 of those teams will finish on top of the east...IMO it is TOO CLOSE to call. In all likelihood it will boil down to which team can stay the healthiest.

By the way Raps will not finish 4th...they will finish 5th or 6th

I'll have to go with Boston. They've had some quality signings this summer (Sheed, Big Baby), and with Big Baby being back, they have 4 really solid big men, who'll out rebound any team. They will be scary good defensively.
