    I've been a lifelong Boston Celtics fan, and since the Bird years, there's little to have gotten excited about. So far, this year, the Celtics are 2-0, with wins over decent teams of Washington and Toronto. So what does everyone think about this team? Most experts and fans have either predicated at least a trip to the conference finals. I say, why not a championship? There defense looks solid and the offense spectacular. So, I ask you, the Celtics, in 2008, a return to greatness? And by greatness, I mean a championship. Does anyone think they can do it?

    I'm not a Celtics fan, but I'm gonna try and catch as many of their nationally televised games as I can this year. With Garnett, Allen and Pierce, this is gonna be a fun team to watch.

    I think they can make it to the finals, but I don't see them winning against any of the big 3 out West.

    The game vs. the Nuggets tomorrow night will be a good one. Should be a great early season test for both teams.

    the celtics will be good until allen and pierce miss half the season with injuries and garnett starts crying.

    I don't see the Celtics beating the Spurs or the Rockets. And I actually picked the Bulls to make the finals...but that is looking sort of stupid right now.

    Yeah. I thought the Nuggets were actually good this year.

    They should be. They played like garbage, and the Celtics played really well.

    Yes, against the Nuggets, George Karl said afterward, the Celtics are his pick for the championship.

    I hope the Celtics get crushed once they make the playoffs. :)

    that's ignorant.

    On the postive, Celtics 7-0 and are beating teams by 17.1 points on average.
