Examining the NBA 2013

The Boston Celtics have decided to try to rebuild in 2013 14 after trading two of their super stars, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, and losing their head coach, Doc Rivers. The Celtics, who went 41 40 last season to finish 12.5 games behind the New York Knicks in the Eastern Division, traded Pierce and Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets and allowed Rivers to leave for the Los Angeles Clippers. Boston will host the Clippers on Dec.11 and the Nets on Jan. 26, according to the NBA schedule that was released on Aug. 6.

The Celtics will go into the upcoming season with point guard Rajon Rondo as the team leader and under the direction of NBA rookie coach Brad Stevens. The 36 year old Stevens was a surprise selection of general manager Danny Ainge, as so eloquently said in the Boston Globe on August 4, to take over for the well respected Rivers. Stevens spent the previous six seasons at Butler and led the Bulldogs to a 166 49 record. Butler won four conference titles, made five Tournament appearances including two national championship games during Stevens' tenure.

Stevens, who has a six year contract, will have to work some magic to make the Celtics competitive this upcoming season as Rondo is the team's only potential all star. The rest of the current 15 man roster is made up of journeymen and youngsters.

Boston's roster is at their capacity as each of the current players on the roster have guaranteed contracts. The Celtics' roster includes nine players under the age of 26 and consists of three point guards, four shooting guards, two small forwards, three power forwards and three centers.

Rajon Rondo: The 27 year old point guard will be the unquestioned leader of the Celtics this upcoming season. Rondo, who only played in 38 games last season, was having one of his best seasons before suffering a torn ACL that ended his nba jerseys for kids season. Rondo averaged 13.7 points, 11.1 assists and 5.6 rebounds a game in 2012 13. He also had an 18.12 PER last year.

Rondo is a triple double waiting to happen (five last year) as he is a good scorer, an excellent rebounder and a superb distributor. He shoots the ball well from the floor (48.1 percent for career) but is not much of a threat from beyond the three point line (24.1 percent for career) and doesn't get to the line enough (2.8 per game for his career). He also is a very good defender.

While Rondo is the Celtics only star, he may not be a Celtic at the end of the season as Boston continues to transition to a rebuilding team. As the Detroit Free Press August 6, article stated Rondo's trade rumors may last until the trade deadline with the Detroit Pistons being the latest interested.

Avery Bradley: The 6 2 third year point guard is a solid defender and a volume shooter. He averaged 9.2 points on 9.6 shots a game and 2.1 assists along with 2.2 rebounds.

Bradley, who started at both the point and shooting guard last season, shot 40.2 percent from the field and 31.7 percent from beyond the arc. Bradley can play both the one and two but is most comfortable off the ball. He had a 8.89 PER last season.

Bradley needs to get to line more often (1.0 free throws last season) and cut down on his fouls.

The Celtics will have to make a decision on whether Bradley is part of their future plans as he is a restricted free agent following the season.

Phil Pressey: The 5 11 undrafted rookie out of Missouri will likely be the third point guard on the squad and will probably spend a lot of in the D League with the Maine Red Claws . However, if Rondo isn't ready by the start of the season, Pressey will see plenty of time with the big club.

Pressey earned a three year contract, just the first year is guaranteed, by averaging 9.4 points, 2.2 rebounds and 6.6 assists in five Orlando Summer League games.

Pressey is very strong and has outstanding range on his shot plus he possesses strong passing skills. On the downside, Pressey has a habit of turning the ball over a bunch.

Pressey averaged 11.9 points, 7.1 assists and 3.3 rebounds during his junior year at Missouri in 2012 13.

MarShon Brooks: The 6 5 shooting guard is expected to provide some offense off the Celtics bench. Brooks came over to Boston from New Jersey as part of the Kevin Garnett/ Paul Pierce trade.

He averaged 5.4 points on 46.3 percent shooting in just 12.5 minutes of action for Brooklyn last season. Brooks had a 13.55 PER last season. Brooks averaged 12.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 29.4 minutes a game in 2011 12.

Brooks is a solid athlete who knows how to score the basketball. He is a good shooter though not overly efficient as he doesn't get to the line a lot.

Keith Bogans: The 33 year old veteran is a gritty defender who likes to shoot the three pointer. He averaged 4.2 points and shot 34.3 percent from beyond the arc last season.

Jordan Crawford: The 6 4 shooting guard, along with Courtney Lee, is at a bit of a crossroads with the Celtics with the addition of Brooks. Crawford, who is 25 years old, is a scorer that takes bad shots. He is a decent passer and okay rebounder.

Crawford averaged 11.6 points, 3.2 assists and 3.0 rebounds last season in 24.4 minutes of action. His PER was 13.82.

Crawford will be a restricted free agent following the season.

Courtney Lee: The 27 year old shooting guard is known for his defense and three point shooting. However, Lee struggled a little from beyond the arc last year as he shot 37.2 percent from the three point line and was inconsistent on the defensive end. He averaged 7.5 points, 1.8 assists and 2.4 wholesale nba jerseys china rebounds in 2013 14. Lee also had a 11.71 PER

For his career, Lee Marcin Gortat nba jerseys averages 9.5 points a game and shoots 38.4 percent from beyond the arc.

Jeff Green: The Celtics plan to build around the 6 9 small/power forward, as well as Rondo. Green, 26 years old, picked up his game during the past postseason.

In the Celtics six 2013 postseason games, Green averaged 20.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 43 minutes of action. He also shot 43.5 percent from the field and 45.5 percent from beyond the arc. Green averaged 12.8 points on 46.7 percent shooting and shot 38.5 percent from beyond the arc during the regular season. He had a PER of 15.01.

Green is very athletic and has the ability to score in nba jerseys for kids the post as well as from the perimeter.

Gerald Wallace: The 6 7, 31 year old small forward is coming off his worst season since 03 04. Wallace averaged 7.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 30 minutes of action. Wallace shot 39.7 percent from the floor and had a PER of 11.58.

Wallace picked up his play during postseason as he averaged 12.0 points and 4.0 rebounds while shooting 46.3 percent from the field.
