First of all, thank you to Rich for being on sports talk radio and actually caring about the Celtics. Now that that's out of the way, I need Danny to be more specific. Are we talking about NBA basketball games here? Our Connect 4 wizard is gone, so hopefully we are.
Also, I am assuming that includes the Celtics 7 preseason games, because if not, he is hoping and planning for a run into the Eastern Conference Finals. That would be delusional, especially if Ainge is done making moves with the roster. Including preseason is a little more realistic. That would be 11 games minimum in the playoffs, meaning we are hoping and planning to win at least a first round playoff matchup.
The comment on needing a full roster to make a run like that, while not entirely always true, is 100% true for this team. Lacking a LeBron James to carry the Matthew Dellavedova's of the world on a playoff run, the Celtics need a deep roster full of players that are better than the Dellavedova's, ideally demonstrably better. Since the Celtics have a football team of guaranteed contracts right now, it is clear that depth is their goal, and best hope to improve for the upcoming 2015-16 season.
