mike (boston): Bill, I'm pretty bummed out about the Celtics' prospects in the future. The Big three are aging quickly and they have not cap flexibility to add any good young pieces going forward. I feel like we're looking at another 22 year drought. Help...what would you do if you were Danny Ainge?
SportsNation Bill Simmons: (1:14 PM ET ) They're fine. They were worn down - they played 200-plus games (including 40 playoff games) in the span of 19 months and didn't have KG. Perk and Rondo will be a year better, KG will be back, they have 6 mill of expiring conttracts to deal (Scal + Tony) and they can use some or all of the FA midlevel this summer on a swingman ... I'd love to see them make a run at Ariza. I don't think LA can afford him AND Odom.
Look at the excuses for the Celtics from this tool.
