NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.
If there is a deeper team in all of basketball, then they automatically deserve the NBA title, because the Boston Celtics are super deep.
Now the Celtics have signed Marquise Daniels, the former Indiana Pacer.
Daniels is coming off the best of his six seasons, averaging career highs of 13.6 points and 4.6 rebounds in 54 games with the Indiana Pacers, 43 of them starts.
The 28-year-old Daniels spent three seasons with Dallas before moving to Indiana. For his career, he is averaging 9.4 points in 351 games, including 109 starts.
Marquise is 6’6″ tall and can play the big guard position. Yeah, Boston was lacking at the big guard backup position. Like they actually lack at any position.
Check out this lineup:
You have Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen at the guard positions.
You have Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett at the forward positions.
You have Kendrick Perkins playing center.
That alone would be enough, but check out these backups:
You have Eddie House, the 3 point shooter, and Tony Allen, and now Marquise Daniels at the backup guard position.
You have Brian Scalabrine and Glen Davis at backup forward.
Then you can top it off with Rasheed Wallace at center.
Maybe the toughest thing all year will be to decide who plays in the 4th quarter with the game on the line. So how good is Boston? Well, the Boston Globe reports that Marquise Daniels turned down more money from other teams to play for the Celtics with the belief that they can win the NBA Title.
