WHAT WILL THE CELTICS DO?
I know the Bruins are in the Stanley Cup for the first time in 21 years and the Red Sox are finally playing the way they should be, but I asked myself the other day, what is in store for the Celtics next season? After coming off a brutal series loss to the Miami Heat, the Celtics have a lot of question marks heading into next season. Shaq has retired, Jermaine is questioning surgery, Krstic is a free agent, Baby is a free agent, and the Big three are only getting older. Sure, Rajon Rondo is here to stay (hopefully) and the team can build around him when the Big Three have retired, but where do they go? Do they try and go after Dwight Howard? Doc Rivers signed a five year deal, well beyond the availability of the Big Three so in my opinion, something must be in store. Will they ship Rondo and Jeff Green to New Orleans for Chris Paul? With Chris Paul, does that bring Dwight Howard is 2012? There is a lot to think about come November. The Celtics are losing a lot of key parts, but the core will still be there and I still think they can make a push for another championship.
