The Boston Celtics are in OKC tonight for the second and final game between the Thunder and C's this season. CelticsBlog CEO Jeff Clark was gracious enough to answer a few of my questions about how he thinks both the Celtics and the NBA's season has gone thus far. Be sure to stop by CelticsBlog when you have a moment in order to get ready for tonight's game.
Mr. Clark also posed some questions for me to answer, so if you'd like to take a gander, hop on over and check it out:
1) How would you grade the Celtics' first half of the season? What do you think their second half upside is?
2) Rajon Rondo...I know it's painful, but what do you think this suspension means for his long-term future in Boston? In regards to this season, do you think this ball-throwing incident is the harbinger or the turning point?
3) If the Celtics continue at their current pace, they're probably going to end up as a 7 or 8 seed and have to deal with either the Bulls or the Heat in the first round. Is the current make-up of the team worth devoting to in order to get a slightly higher seed and therefore a greater chance at getting out of the 1st round, or is it time to break up the band and get some return before it's too late?
4) What does the western conference look like to you from your east coast perch, and who do you think is going to challenge for the title?
