What Should The Celtics Do? (I Dunno)

I don't know about you, but I'm finding it hard to formulate a strong opinion about what the team should do this offseason.  

On one hand, I see the value of keeping the band together for one last concert tour.  On the other hand, I know that it sure would be nice to get younger and start planning for Rondo's prime.  On yet another hand I don't see what we can really do until Kevin Garnett's contract runs out in two years.  So this next year might be a bridge year or it might be the start of a slow decline or it might just be a last hurrah.  I don't really know.

It also doesn't help that we are all in limbo at the moment.  We don't know if Doc Rivers is going to be back - which is pretty critical considering the personalities on this team.  We don't know if Paul Pierce will opt out of his contract, which could have major ramifications on how the C's spend money this summer.  We don't know how much Ray Allen is going to ask for, so it is hard to know if that's going to be a position where we need depth or a new starter.  We don't yet know what Rasheed Wallace's retirement is going to mean to our cap.  We don't know how long Kendrick Perkins is going to be out after surgery.  We just don't know so much at this point.

So I'm left with a feeling of being more of a spectator than I'm used to being in the offseason.  Granted, I've never been consulted by the team - and frankly if I was I'd be very worried.  But this year more than ever, I think I'm going to sit back and see what happens.
