BostonHerald.com - Rivers' analysis: Playoffs in reach
I think its obvious to everyone that I would be supremely disappointed with anything but a playoff berth this year. If last year's proverbial ship without a rudder could do it, I don't see why this year's version couldn't. Of course, the other Eastern teams have worked hard to improve themselves as well. I it is possible we could finish with a better record and still miss the playoffs.
Certainly our playoffs goal will be much easier to achieve with a healthy and happy Gary Payton, who will make a go of it with the cast and has actually looked good in practice with it.
Also, Shira gives us a fluffy piece on Blount.
