after winning the 2008 nba champinoship against the los angeles lakers, do you think the boston celtics will do it again next season, will they defend it back to back..? or the los angeles lakers will come up strong and get a revenge against any teams from the east?

Next year would be a totally different year. I think the Celtics will have a hard time defending their title. Teams will definitely overhaul their rosters. The emerging Hornets led by Chris Paul are there. The Spurs, Utah Jazz, they're all good teams. In the east, Detroit and Orlando could be contenders for the Eastern Championship. Of course, the Lakers are there. They'll be better for sure. They could also grab the crown. Overall, it is still too early to tell. But Boston's chance of a repeat is not impossible. xD But its going to be tough.

yah i agree with you the ball is round anything can happen, especially this coming draft maybe after the draft lots of trade talks will be happen...we will see if the other contender teams stay intact! thanks for the response.

It will be a better season then last year, and I am picking the Lakers now. I hope they win, but my favorites will change as the season goes along.

hi shy. i think its to early for anyone to talk about a possible repeat of the celtics next season. after all, the other teams will be ready for them. plus a lot of thigns can happen between now and october. i mean there's the draft and of course the possible trades so there are really a lot of factors to consider. no doubt that the core of the celtics will remain the same but they can still add a piece or two to their team. i think they need a mor reliable back-up pg. rondo did well but he won't be able to do same thigns he did this season to the other pgs. of course, the other teams, like the lakers, the spurs, the pistons, and the cavs are goign to beef up their roster to have a competitive team that can go up against boston. the two teams that have the top two draft picks, chicago and miami, are also threats because of their draft picks alone. if ever, i think every team will be gunning for a win over boston next season. the celts might as well put bulleye marks in their jersey because all the other teams will be targeting them.

yes that's what i thought a lot of teams will be prepared next season, the celtics just got lucky and their destined to be champion and deserved it after 2 game 7's between the hawks and cavs...even pistons threatened them. hhhmmm what do you think of the spurs tradition? they became champs in odd number years 1999,2003,2005,2007....huh 2009? we will seee....
