Let's take it easy on ourselves for a second and just try to think clearly: The Boston Celtics are the best team in the east.
The Bulls are good, yes, but let's also remember that they are coached by a guy that the Celtics raised into that position. We know what Tom is going to set up (and yes, he knows what Boston is going to set up as well) but Doc was the teacher, Tom the student. The Bulls are definitely a talented team but they aren't as deep and not nearly as experienced as the C's. Boozer & Noah are good down low but honestly, they aren't ready to lead. Sure, Rose is a great point guard and prob. this year's MVP but Rondo is no slouch...neither is Delonte (one of the best man on man defenders in the league IMO).
The real test is going to be the finals this year, most likely against the Lakers again. yes, the C's need to win 3 rounds to get there but come on! Philadelphia? No way they touch the C's. Miami or the Knicks? Nope. Orlando is the only real threat the C's will face but with KG playing, they won't stand a chance.
Let's do this !!! ONE MORE TIME! THE C'S HAD IT LAST YEAR IN THEIR HANDS AND LET IT SLIP! REMEMBER THAT EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY PLAYOFF GAME!
