Celtics will be contenders always with Rajon Rondo. He's a great ball distributor. If only he can shoot, he'll be Westbrook and CP3 combined. But obviously Rondo doesn't need to shoot. There's a load of jump shooters on the Celtics: Jason Terry, Pierce, Garnett, Courtney Lee, Brandon Bass, Jeff Green, Barbosa, etc. They need an inside game or a pure center so they can rebound. Especially going against the Lakers. Bulls and so on. Although lacking decent rebounding (Celtics are ranked dead last in rebounding) they still win games. That is all that matters.

Wait! What about Kevin Garnett? Isn't he the Celtics lead rebounder and starting center.

Kevin Garnett's primary position was power forward. Their previous centers if I can recall were Shaq and Jermaine O' Neal.

Perkins, too.

Kevin Garnett is indeed their starting center and lead rebounder (at only 7.4 rebounds/game though) right now. But yes, his primary position is power forward. There's been a dearth of "true" centers in the NBA in the past decade or so with an increasing number of big men playing more explosive games (e.g. Blake Griffin, Amar'e Stoudemire), so it's not surprising Garnett's been switched over to the center position given his height, length, and defensive prowess. Besides, the positions can be interchangeable (e.g. Tim Duncan).

Rockets getting owned at the Thunder. Harden struggled in that game. 3-16 field goal.

Pop sits Parker, Duncan, Ginobili, and Green for the nationally televised Spurs vs. Heat game. That's hilarious.

And it'd be even funnier if the Spurs win.

What the hell? That's one of the worst decisions ever in sports history by a commissioner. If the players agree to rest let them rest. It's the regular season. Fans will miss just a few games without the big three.
