Celtics Morning Joe: Celtics ranked 2nd in the East

Posted by shawn cassidy on August 21, 2012 at 6:00 AM


The ESPN experts, put their heads in the oven, and they cooked up an Eastern Conference forecast. They put the Celtics at number two in the East. I agree with that. But what I disagree with is the win total. Just 50 wins? No way, this team will win 55-60 games for sure.


Forecast: 2012-13 East standings

@JVanGlorious: I think the Heat getting 60 wins will be underachieving. I see them closer to 68 and skating right into the Finals this year.



Wow! This guy believes the Heat will get close to 70 wins? I think that would be possible if the league had a bunch of teams like the Hornets. They may have the Nets a bit high for my taste. But they'll be a team that will make some noise. They won't win a title, but they'll be the new  Atlanta Hawks of the East. 


Now back to the Celtics. Will have to settle for second in forecasts done by everyone. And like I said. Everyone is right for putting us second. We lost in the ECF. The Celtics have to show that they can beat the Heat with their new players. I believer they can, but they need to play the games. When April comes around, who knows how these guys will feel. They change their minds as fast as I blink. So, settle in as number two for awhile. It doesn't mean we think it.

I think the Cs will start out the season fast. They will have the luxury of training camp.

I agree with the ranking. But I wouldn't be surprised to see the Celtics finish first.

I think they will. But how can anyone not rank Miami first?

You have to. It's a right of passage really. That the winner of a conference is favored again.

I agree, C'sLife - you put it perfectly -it's a rite of passage.
