Hoopsworld has postes a preview of all 30 teams. Here is what they had to say about the Celtics. I think the key to improvement for the team will be defense. Will Doc institute a team defense or let them pick it up while they practice offense? If the team doesn't improve defensively, that may mean the end of Doc in Boston. I am still not ruling out a trade before training camp, but think Danny would be best served to wait until he sees how this team performs. I think the competition at just about every position will be a good thing for the team.
Boston Celtics: The Celtics still are not where they want to be, and don’t be surprised if the C’s trigger a deal at the deadline to get Paul Pierce some veteran help if the C’s struggle early. Sebastian Telfair looked great running the Celtics offense in Vegas, if he and Piece can find a rhythm early, things could swing in the Celtics favor. Ultimately the Celtics have a lot of young players, and Doc Rivers has to pound them into shape quickly. While its pretty clear Danny Ainge likes his roster coming into camp, don’t think for a moment the Celtics are not in the market for some serious veterans to power a real playoff push, something Celtics ownership is adamant about this year, and something that failing to achieve could mean bad news for Doc Rivers and Danny.
