How Confident Are You That the Celtics Will Win the NBA Championship This Season?

How Confident Are You That the Celtics Will Win the NBA Championship This Season? The debate over the Celtics' playoff chances seems to come down to two questions:

Can the Celtics simply "flip the switch" like they did last year, given their mediocre level of play since the Kendrick Perkins trade?

And, can Shaquille and Jermaine O'Neal contribute enough to give the Celtics any semblance of a low-post presence?

The Celtics are likely looking at the East's no. 3 seed, meaning they are in position to draw the dangerous Knicks in the first round and then have to take their talents to South Beach for four of seven games in the second round against Miami, but there is still reason to believe.

Basically, when you have a core of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnet, Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and Doc Rivers, you're going to be a very tough out come playoff time, and, as bad as the Celtics have been of late, you just can't count them out.
