ESPN Ranks Celtics 24th In Future Power Rankings

As part of an annual feature over at ESPN, analysts Chad Ford, Amin Elhassan, Tom Haberstroh and Kevin Pelton ranked every team in the league based on five criteria to get a gauge on which direction each team was headed over the next three seasons. Based on those criteria, and considering that the "player" category was worth 50 percent of the score where as "draft" was worth just 8.3 percent, you can probably see why the Celtics finished 24th.

...What if they're good?

I saw somewhere a writer say that Rondo was secretly hoping that this team could be the Phoenix Suns of this year and be sneakily good. This got me to thinking.

Was the Boston Celtics' rim protection acquisition promise fulfilled with Tyler Zeller?

Remember back in May when Jared Sullinger's father, Satch, said that the Boston Celtics "kind of promised" they were going to acquire a center this summer? Fans salivated about the possibility of acquiring a player like Omer Asik or Larry Sanders, but instead the Celtics served up Tyler Zeller. Sullinger has started losing weight , so he is keeping his end of the bargain, but have the Celtics? Even though Sanders is still available, it's likely that Boston's apparent "rim protection acquisition promise" begins and ends with Zeller.

Rondo + Green = Paul George???

Paul George is a huge question mark. Even though no ligaments were torn it's still a serious injury with no guarantee he will come back to 100% With that information in mind and Indiana wanting to keep the momentum they've had from recent success a trade for Rondo and Jeff Green might be something they could be interested in.
