When Rasheed Wallace signed with the Boston Celtics this offseason, you know he was going to talk with his mouth, and in the games…complain to the refs. But right now, it’s his mouth as he says the Celtics can surpass the Bulls record of 72 games won in a season.
Said Wallace in an interview:
“‘Oh definitely. Definitely, playing with those three other guys, also combining that with the guys we have on the bench, I think we can definitely can. Me personally, I think we can get that Bulls record. You know we have the talent for it. We have the will for it and … I think we have the defense for it.’
[Halzack:] Do you want me to use that?
‘You can. Because honestly, I really do feel that. That was a good team. They had some [Hall of Famers] on there, but we have a few on this team, too.’”
Weird, huh? But according to a source, which is my buddy Jay King’s site, his site at Celtics Town says that the Celtics won 66 games two years ago and 62 games last year, with Kevin Garnett injured for part of the season. With K.G. healthy this year and Boston looking much better with new additions and all that, the Celtics are better than both of those teams combined!
But the Celtics are going to have to battle some tough teams this season along with their players staying healthy. Can they do it? Possibly, but heck, we’ll see. Anyways, Wallace is a dreamer, right?
