The celtics have no chance at winning this year because of the challenges they must face this year. Going against teams like OKC, Heat, Lackers, and even the Clipers, all ods are against them.

The Boston Celtics have a chance of winning the Championship because nobody excepts the team to do well, because most of the players like Ray Allen and Paul Pierce are past their prime and probably will retire soon, so i think this will strive for them to make it to the championship.

Due to the fact that the Celtic team is full of vets is a good reason to believe that they are finals ready but however because of the younger talents of tHe teams i mentioned earlier players like ray allen and Paul pierce will have difficulty guarding much younger players like Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose. Althought the Celtics have a good point guard in Rajon Rondo it will in fact be a challenge for him to lead his team for a win against a point guard like Russell Westbrook.

Even through you did bring forth a good point. The number one team in the West Coast is the Oklahoma City Thunder but they have not won a NBA Championship. Unlike the Celtics who have won 16 NBA championships. I think Rajon Rondo is a much better point guard than Russell Westbrook. I dont think that you should under estimate Ray Allen because he is one of the most accurate 3-points and free throws shooters in NBA history

The Celtics will not win the championship this year because of their lack of big men in the post. With Kevin Garnett playing at the center position he will have to guard centers like Dwight Howard, Jokim Noah, Roy Hibbert, and Tyson Chandler which I don't think he is capable of. The Celtics are finishing off the season strong but I just think they are too old and have no bench to make another run at NBA Championship. The Celtics are old like the Spurs but the Spurs have a better chance than the Celtics because their bench players are much better. I just can't see the Celtics beating the Bulls,Heat, or even the Pacers too even make it too the finals.

Well in conclusion you have brought forth alot of good reasons for why the Boston Celtics will not win the NBA Championship this year. I do agree with the points that you made, but i am not going to give on the Celtics because i believe that before Paul Pierce and Ray Allen retire they are going to one more NBA Championship.
