Last week, Paul Pierce said he thought this Nets team is the most talented team he's ever played for -- at least on paper. Read more about it here.
And remember, Pierce played on the 2007-08 Celtics championship team.
A look at its depth chart:
PG: Rajon Rondo/Sam Cassell/Eddie House/Gabe Pruitt
SG: Ray Allen/Tony Allen
SF: Paul Pierce/James Posey
PF: Kevin Garnett/Leon Powe/Glen Davis/Brian Scalabrine
C: Kendrick Perkins/P.J. Brown/Scott Pollard
A look at this season's projected Nets' depth chart:
PG: Deron Williams/Shaun Livingston/Tyshawn Taylor
SG: Joe Johnson/Jason Terry/Alan Anderson
SF: Paul Pierce/Andrei Kirilenko/Tornike Shengelia
PF: Kevin Garnett/Reggie Evans/Mirza Teletovic
C: Brook Lopez/Andray Blatche/Mason Plumlee
The Celtics, buoyed by Their Big 3 and a defense that ranked second in the NBA, won 66 games during the regular season. Boston's depth wasn't as great as Brooklyn's is now, but its starting lineup featured a young Rondo and Allen, Pierce and Garnett still in their primes.
