And Celtics Fans Shouldn't Get Too Giddy

Two stars over 30, a third who is a great player but for whom they traded half the roster. The other 2/5 of the starting lineup is thin, the bench is almost non-existent. One of your Hall of Famers has a rep as a clubhouse lawyer, all three superstars need the rock to be effective, two of them don't like to play defense, and, well, you have a recipe for disaster. Especially considering that no NBA team has won the title with three players averaging over 20 points per game.

And who will help out off the bench?

Scott Pollard? Eddie House?

Perhaps they can score Alan Houston in a trade with the Knicks.

Celtics fans should recall what a Yankee fan said last year about the great talent the Yanks had assembled. "It's a team that can draw 4 million fans, but not necessarily a team that will win a World Series."

Touche -- 3 Hall of Famers, perhaps, but not enough chemistry to win an NBA title.

But they'll draw fans wherever they go, because the NBA is more about entertainment than diving for loose balls, setting the good pick, running the good break.

Unless you live in Phoenix, Detroit, San Antonio or Phoenix.

And perhaps a few other places.
