Ryan has been a Rondo hater, so I'm not surprised he's showing some love for the Celtics who are without Rondo. I agree with him that the Celtics don't fear anyone in the East. But does that mean they can beat everyone in the East? I think the Celtics can beat anyone in the East except Miami. I think they have potential to beat Miami. It will take Bradley locking down Wade, and it will take a total team effort similar to what Dallas did in 2011. So what do you guys think?
"They aren't scared of anybody," says Ryan. "They certainly in their minds feel 'hey we can line up with Miami. We've beaten them as recently as two weeks ago without Rondo. They're not afraid of the Knicks. I think they respect their opponent... but they're not scared of anybody."
