Boston Celtics, Eastern Conference Champs in 2008 [David Stefanini]

Holy S*@%! Kevin Garnett is a Boston Celtic. Talk about a megadeal! The Boston Celtics now have 3 of the best players in the NBA; Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett.

Name a team in the East that can beat the Boston Celtics in a 7 game series, no-one. Right now the Miami Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Detroit Pistons are the three teams you could say can compete with the Celtics. But here is why they wouldn't win, the Heat are to old, the Cavs have only LeBron James and the Pistons couldn't beat the Cavs last year.

The city of Boston must be the happiest place to live right now, sports wise. They have the best team in baseball, a Super Bowl contender every year, and one of the best teams in the NBA. Since I live in New York all of my friends reading this won't let me hear the end of that comment, but it is true.

Kevin Garnett is a perfect player, and I have him ranked as the second best player in the entire league behind Kobe. Garnett can score in the post, has range with his jump shot, he's the leading rebounder in the game, and he is one of the best defensive players in the game.

The Celtics scored the best player available this off-season and any talk about how bad Danny Ainge is should be put to bed. They have a team that can compete with any team in the NBA.
