Pierce is the only sure thing, but Mark Blount (13.4 ppg and 10.3 rpg over the final 20 games) and Jiri Welsch are intriguing maybes.
Danny Ainge dismantled the Celtics, and now it's up to Doc Rivers to put them back together. Doc wants this team to get out and run,
and they have the horses to do it.
Paul Pierce remains the go-to guy. A healthy Raef LaFrentz could be a dominant frontcourt force. But The Glove is the glue. If he's disgruntled, the Celtics will disintegrate. If Payton buys in, he and Pierce could lift the Celts to the playoffs.
