Boston Celtics, Another Title in 09-10?

By Todd Maven

The Boston Celtics are coming off a disappointing 7 game series loss to the Orlando Magic in the second round of the 09' playoffs. All things consider, the Celtics should be pleased with their playoff run given they didn't have team leader Kevin Garnett.

To be honest, the fact that Boston took Orlando to 7 games is pretty impressive in and of itself when you consider the ease with which the Magic buried the Cavs in the Eastern Conference finals.

With that said, the Boston Celtics will look to exact revenge on the Magic in 2009-2010. With a healthy Kevin Garnett at their disposal, the team will look to pick up right where it left off after it won an NBA title during the 2007-2008 basketball season.

The "Big Three" for the Celtics - Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen are not getting any younger so this could be one of the last seasons the Celtics have a legitimate chance at winning the title.

Originally the Boston Celtics had the "Big Three" with Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen - points during the season last year it was the "Big Four" with Rondo included.

In the 08'-09 Wallace only averaged 12 points per game - his lowest scoring averages since his rookie year in 95'-96'.

The Magic have bolstered their roster with Vince Carter, and the Cavs have recruited Shaquille O'Neal. Wallace is a necessity in Boston, as the level of competition has been upped yet another notch.

Wallace won a championship in 04' with the Detroit Pistons and is no stranger in playing in important games in the spring and summer time. - 31494
