LA Times: C's "Worst 27-4 Team Ever"

An LA Times writer has taken it upon himself to call out the Celtics, calling them the "Worst 27-4 team ever."

The Celtics are very short for such a physical, defense-oriented team, with Garnett their only rotation player over 6-9 in bare feet. Tough as he is, Kendrick Perkins, who's listed at 6-10, looks 6-8 1/2 , at most. (I saw him next to the Globe's Marc Spears, who's 6-6. Perkins looked an inch or so taller.)  Glen Davis, listed at 6-9, looks about 6-7 1/2 . Leon Powe, listed at 6-8, looks 6-6 1/2 .

Then there's their bench, as in, what bench?

Powe and Tony Allen might or might not break into the Lakers' nine-man rotation. Davis and Eddie House, no shot. If the Celtics' endurance has yet to be tested, that loss Friday in Golden State wasn't a good sign.

Point guard Rajon Rondo, now touted as an All-Star, is a dynamic defender, rebounder and penetrator . . . but still can't shoot, allowing opponents to leave him, as Kobe Bryant did Thursday.
