Sheed: “I Think We Can Get That Bulls Record…”

Via Tom Halzack in the Connecticut Post:

Rasheed Wallace…

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.

Do you want me to use that?

You can. Because honestly, I really do feel
that. That was a good team. They had some HOFs  on there, but we have a
few on this team, too.

That’s a high mark to shoot for…


Doc has also talked about having the best defense ever like, he uses
the Chicago Bears the ‘85 team, taking that kind of mentality

We want our mark to be known as a defensive team, not just high scorers.

Along with the 72-10 record, the Bulls also had the top rated offense, top rated defense, scored 105.2 ppg while giving up 92.9 for a spread of 12.3 points.

Health and age will be major factors in this goal. But consider this; during that 95-96 season Michael Jordan was 33, Dennis Rodman was 35 and Scottie Pippen was 30.

So whaddya think? Can this Celtics team win 70+ games?

    Once again there is all this talk about the Lakers being able to sniff at that record, but people are leaving the celtics out of it because of age and health issues. Minus Garnett being injured last year, in the 3 year span they have been together they have stayed very healthy in my opinion. Injury is not really my biggest fear. I think they should be fine. and I think they should be able to test this record. This team when healthy was 27-2 last year, and we have just added rasheed and daniels, and a much better rondo and perk. They are stacked.

    Absolutely. Look at our records for the past two seasons and our team this year is arguably the best we’ve had since the Big Three combined forces.

    Dude, Jess Camerato is pretty fucking hott, i heard her on the 2 man game before and even talked with her, but i never knew she was smokin..Holy shit…But as far as the 70 wins, its definitely doable but the thing is although we have the talent there are just unforseeable things such as injuries and the occasional letdown against the sacramentos of the world who’s season will be made by beating the big bad Celtics, so im gona say we will probably win 63, that being said though if the health is not an issue then who knows..didn’t we start 26-2 last year and I think this roster is much deeper so we shall see!!

  • Jp

    Of course they CAN do it. But will they? Should they? I’d say no on both counts.

    I’m in the “less talk from Sheed” camp. I hope he doesnt start “guaranteeing” games like he did in Detoilet, his track record was not good.
    2 years ago they needed that home court against Cleveland for game 7. As a vet squad they should be able to move on without home court in every round though. If winning 72 games means Pierce & Allen play the big minutes like last year, it’s not worth it. If they can get the best record in the league -AND get the stars rest by using arguably the best 2nd unit in the league, go for it.

  • STFU Marbury

    Marbury rejected Boston offer it on the bottom of this article and I will post what the article from NY Post said. And yes I don’t understand this he would like to play for a playoff contender. Well aren’t the Celtics a playoff contender
    According to a source, the Celtics offered Marbury a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum of $1.3M to return and he rejected it, feeling he would get more. Marbury wanted to keep shopping, but with the economy, he has no NBA job. A source said Marbury is still seeking to play, but only for a playoff contender. Marbury hasn’t hired an agent, using Players Association attorney Hal Biagas.

    i rather we win the finals than win 72 games.

    No team is going to break that record for a while at least. 1995 saw 2 new teams and 4 other teams that had been in the league only since 88. There has been no expansion since ’95 and all the teams are deeper and more talented. It goes to reason that if there is more than one team that thinks it can equal or break the record, the odds of any of them (3 this year at least) doing it are slim to none. I predict 65 wins will be enough for best record in the league.

  • Bas Rutten Jr.

    You got low standards, Nick.

  • another tim.

    i’m in this camp too.
