    Garnett guarantees 2010 and 2011 championship for Boston

    Keven Garnett has been telling folks that he's guaranteeing the NBA championship for Boston for both the 2010 and 2011 seasons. Usually you only see short-range forecasts. KG must be seeing something that most people are missing...

    Garnett looking forward - The Boston Globe

    He could be right. I think KG is as close to clinically insane as anybody in the NBA

    "If", and that's a big "if", the Celtics can stay healthy they have a real shot at making that promise come through.

    They won it last year; would have killed the Magic, Cavs, and Lakers this year with a healthy KG; and I don't see any other teams that can compete with them for the next couple of years. Not even the Lebron led Knicks....

    The Celts wouldn't have killed any of those teams. The Lakers beat the Celts twice this past season. Garnett played substantial minutes in both games. Bynum was out when the Lakers beat the Celts in the Garden.

    The Celts have bench issues that they need to take care of before they are going to win to back-to-back titles.

    Bynum will be a very good player if he could stay healthy for a long period of time. Just when his game gets to a certain point he gets hurt...and than has to start all over again. I think he could be a 17 and 8 guy down the road

    If Garnett was healthy this year I think they would be champs again. They beat LA last year with Rondo not half the player he was this year late in the season. Not to mention guys like Perkins and Big Baby better than they were a year ago. It would've been a great series between them and the Lakers. Hopefully that's what we get next year.

    Why on earth would you say that?

    Before his injury, Bynum was starting and putting up very solid numbers, and saving wear-and-tear on Odom by allowing him to play fewer minutes. He was a significant part of the Lakers' fast start. If you go back and read the press reports surrounding his injury, many speculated that the Lakers would not make the finals without him, because of the large positive impact he was making during his time on the floor.

    G/Min/FGM-FGA/FG%/FTM-FTA/FG%/OR/DR/TR/BLK/PPG
    50/28.9/281-502/.560/152-215/.707/2.7/5.2/8.0/1.80/14.3

    He didn't recover after his injury to his previous level of play, just like the good guard from the Magic wasn't playing at the level he was prior to injury.

    So is this going to be after the Celts trade Ray Allen? I think their window may have closed
