    When the Celtics take the floor this year, they will be attempting to build on the success that they’ve had over the last several years. The season before last, after all, was their championship season. Last year, for a long time, it looked like they might make it all the way to the Finals yet again. They still have all the elements of a great team. Ray Allen will continue to hit impossible shots on a daily basis. Kevin Garnett will add his incomparable strength at power forward again and hopefully he will stay healthy. They have also added Rasheed Wallace from Detroit to give the team an impressive amount of energy at the FC position, where he has shined for many years with the Pistons. Watch for him to make rebounds and protect the basket with the same effectiveness he brought to his old team. Doc Rivers knows how to put together a championship team and train them to play real basketball. The Celtics are clearly very excited to prove themselves to the rest of the NBA once again, aiming not only to win their division again, but to play deeper into the playoffs. They might even get the Finals victory once again. Boston Celtics tickets go on sale on the 27th, so start looking over the schedule to find the best games and be first in line to get your tickets!
