Waning Years

Let's be realistic about the Celtics roster, the stars on this team are no long at the apex of their game, Paul Pierce, K.G. Ray Allen, Rasheed Wallace. They are not as fast, quick, or athletic as they used to be. In fact they some of them aren't at the star level of NBA basketball any longer. The best player of this bunch is clearly KG and I've notice that KG's game isn't as dominant as it once used to be, Pierce is not as quick off the dribble and defensively you can see him having problems staying in front of the younger quicker players ! Ray Allen was never a good defensive player but he's getting beat very very badly and very often ! Rasheed has moved his game further from the basket to compensate for his waning athleticism. And here is the heart and guts of the C's team this year. So who else from the C's roster will be able to rise to the level of stardom ? Unless its the rookie Lester there will be no one else, not saying that the team doesn't have a good supporting cast . Daniels Wallace, Tony Allen can be very adequate at supporting a team. It's my opinion this years team will be the last hooray for the C's unless something magical and unforeseen happens for them. As things are now the best player on the C's is either KG or Rondo !!! And Rondo may have the edge as far as being the MVP of this team. Perhaps Big Baby, Bill Walker, JR Giddens will become All Stars of the near future... I think not !!!
