the celtics will make the east conf playoffs because derrick rose is done. if they had run into a healthy bulls team, they would get excused from the playoffs.
maybe they can make another "deep run" like last yr when in the 2nd round they were smashed 4-1 by miami??
It was 2-1 miami after game 3 but wade injured rondo (who is just as important to the celtics as rose is to the bulls), miami won game 4 in OT, which they wouldnt have if Rondo was there. You never know where that series was going to go after that...
Also even without Rondo, Miami didnt "smash" boston, majority of the games in the series were very close.
