The Celtics must get younger and taller players to be able to get the championship title next season. I agree that Allen had several missed shots in the previous games and the Celtics team will decide if Allen will be staying or not. It will be best to get a taller player who can move fast and gets the rebound for missed shots. We are not so sure about the status of Kendrid Perkins next season. My hopes are still high for Boston.

I think the Boston Celtics should go younger and taller.I would not be surprise if the Boston Celtics go after LeBron James. The NBA draft is coimg up at the end of this month maybe the Celtics will take some one that make inpact right away! With Allen,Piece and Garret,they are up their in age! Maybe the Celtics can deal one of them in the off season? I don't know! I think Boston will be making some major changes in the off season,though! They need to!

Boston had a very wide championship experience and with the outcome of Game 7, they can see the infractions throughout the game. Celtics must improve to be able to make a "sweet revenge" the next season. My eyes are wide open for the next championship title of Boston. Let's hope that Lakers cannot get another one next season.

hello. im a celtics fan..i agree to some of your premise that several miss shots of allen would be a factor for his renewal next season.. but all in all i think boston's rey allen performance is much better than any of his counter parts. to put your name on the records for having been the most number of 3 point shots in a final would definitely give him an edge over the rest. while some team rely on their young roster and tall along with the athleticism i believe boston never primarily rely on that.. they survived and manage to be on top despite of lacking some of it but they are boosted by their team performance,the chemistry works better than having that faster taller player..to sight some example cleaveland and le bron, magic's howard. he has everything it takes to be a superstar and even super athlete but they lack team work thats why they fell short from the expectation.. being both a boston fan were hopeful that next season would be a better one.

The Celtics have a good lineup. The lack only one player who can create plays on isolation other than Paul Pierce. Rajon Rondo can create plays but his perimeter shooting is not good enough. Back to his younger years, Ray Allen is a good versatile player. Now, that he is aging, he is known as a perimeter shooter. They can also play some big against the team with a big lineup just like the Lakers. Yhe problem in Game 7 is that, they played without Perkins who is their top rebounder and top defender in the paint. The coaching staff headed by Doc Rivers have done a remarkable job of motivating his players after some basketball critics said that the Celtics are aging. Doc Rivers could be relegated again to coach the Celtics for the next 2-3 years to come. We should all salute the Celtics for their brave heart and determination in battling against the star-studded Laker team. GOod luck next year Celtics!

I think the line-up of Boston Celtics are just fine. What they need is a better coaching staff. Versus the Lakers, as you can see it is only Kobe Bryant who's doing most of the scoring. Wherein at Celtics 3 to 4 players are doing the basket. But how come they lost. It is because they have a weak coaching staff.
