The Boston Celtics have managed to make an unlikely run that now sees them Atlantic division champions. After a slow start that saw the Celts under .500 at the All-Star break, and despite the loss of multiple players, including starting power forward Jeff Green, the Celtics are now in a position that only a select few die-hards could have imagined possible.
The Celtics have managed to make this incredible run through a series of desperate line-up changes due to a depleted roster.
What they lack in the rebounding category is quickly countered with their shutdown defense and stellar back court. The C’s will hope to couple their strong back court with their experienced leadership to make a legitimate run at championship number 18 this offseason.
Though the NBA season is far from over, some Celtic faithful are already concerned with the future of the franchise. While this concern is warranted, there is hope for the 2012-2013 campaign if these five moves are made.
