Boston Celtics
Last season: 24-58, last in Atlantic Division.
Coach: Doc Rivers (273-312, 9th season)

Needs: Maybe an extra basketball or two to accommodate the three-headed superstar. Aside from that, an upgrade at point guard and center would be ideal.

Key Additions: Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Glen Davis, Scot Pollard, Eddie House.

Key Subtractions: Al Jefferson, Theo Ratliff, Gerald Green, Sebastian Telfair, Ryan Gomes.

Remaining from last season: Paul Pierce, Tony Allen, Dahntay Jones, Leon Powe, Rajon Rondo, Brian Scalabrine, Kendrick Perkins.

Outlook: There are three reasons to believe the Celtics can go from the bottom to the top of the Atlantic in one year: Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce. But the rest of the Celtics’ revamped roster is underwhelming at best. Fortunately, they’re in the East, where LeBron and his tepid Cavs reigned supreme last season, so even with a mediocre supporting cast the Celtics could challenge for the Eastern Conference crown behind their big three. But there’s still a question as to whether Garnett, Pierce and Allen – three superstars who are used to being the top guns on their teams – can suddenly learn to share. Even if they hit some rough spots, the season will still be a huge step up from what fans have become accustomed to from their Celtics in recent years.
