Pierce: We Still Have 3 or 4 years to Win More Titles

i doubt that they will win another championship, nevermind having a 5 or 6 year window to get championships.

Quote:

The sense of urgency is there every season for Paul Pierce. But hes also well aware that its been two summers since the blockbuster trades that brought Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett to Boston and turned the Celtics into an instant championshion team.

We put a team like this together knowing most championship contenders have like a five- or six-year window, Pierce said. This is our third year. Hopefully we have a few more years to compete but were trying to get it done now.

With training camp set to open Tuesday and the preseason opener Oct. 7 in Houston, Pierce maintained that if the Celtics are healthy, they can win a championship with the team they have.

That team will include Rasheed Wallace, Marquis Daniels, and a healthy Garnett.

Pierce worked out with Garnett this summer.

Hes excited, Pierce said. KGs such a competitor. It hurt him not to be out there with us last year. Hes just anxious to get back out there on the court. I think hes as anxious as ever.

Were definitely excited about bringing in Rasheed. That was our No. 1 priority going into the season, getting a guy who complements and brings some depth to what were trying to do. Its a perfect fit for us.

Pierce espouses healthy outlook - The Boston Globe


good luck with that.

They're still the team to beat in the East IMO, how long that lasts I'm not sure, but with the same core I'd give them another three years as contenders.

They have 2yrs at the most if they can stay healthy. The problem is LA, SA, Magic are all better teams imo.

Including this season I say the Celtics have three years left to win a Championship. They will definitely be a favourite to make it to the finals. At this point I give 'em a slight edge over Orlando
