Brendan was a panelist in today’s 5-on-5 over at ESPN, where the C’s were repeatedly named as one of the sleeper teams in the league. Sample Boston-based responses:
Jared Wade, Eight Points, Nine Seconds: Boston Celtics. We knew the Celtics weren’t built for this season. Given the age of their three great players not named Rajon Rondo, they just might not be built for any season anymore. But there is no other team in the league with as many Hall of Famers, and there isn’t a squad in the league that Boston, if it plays at its best, couldn’t beat in a seven-game series.
Brendan Jackson, Celtics Hub: Boston Celtics. The first team no other NBA team will count out. With all the hoopla around declaring this team done, the fact that they haven’t been healthy all season slides under the radar. They’ve currently won four of their past five games and are scheduled to get Rajon Rondo back any day. Of course, once they get healthy, there’s no chance they’ll stay that way.
