Celtics-Nets blockbuster trade

In shedding themselves of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry, the Celtics will acquire enough draft picks to make things interesting for several years starting in 2014. But what does that leave for 2013? With a potential starting lineup of Rajon Rondo (who by the way is likely to miss significant time with his ACL injury), Avery Bradley, Jeff Green, Gerald Wallace and Brandon Bass, Celtics fans are gearing up for what could be a lost season. In Brooklyn, it's quite the opposite. The addition of the former Celtics trio makes for an intriguing 2013, but is it enough for the Nets to contend in the Eastern Conference?
