In the midst of this lockout, I decided to create my own Celtics team that would help to get that Banner 18. Actually at first it's just for fun, but realized that the team I'm dreaming of is really possible because of the team's cap flexibility for 2012. Well I assumed that DH will be with the C's (that's why it's a dream), so it's like Rondo at PG, Green at SF, the Big 3 as bench players as SG, SF, PF respectively, and West as the backup PG. I derived the lineup from the possible lineup for this season (well except for Howard). Then for feasibility purposes, I chose Mayo as our starting SG primarily because he is expendable with his team (preferred over TA), hints to like the C's as he regard Rondo to be the best PG with the league, and most importantly has an expiring contract. But I'm having a problem with the starting PF, between Bargnani and Al Jefferson. Who do you think best complement's Howard as the Celtic's Center to create the most dominant frontcourt in the league? A 3pt point Big Man who can penetrate like Bargnani (like Nowitzki), or arguably the best post player who can block shots and consistently make mid range jumpers (his post game is like Olajuwon's better check Youtube). I highly appreciate your opinions.
Note: If you're bored like me because of this freakin' lockout, you better play NBA 2k12 and edit your Boston Celtics roster base on your foreseen lineup for 2012 (if there is a season) or 2013 (if there is none).
