Five ways the Celtics can win the title
3. Keep KG and J.O. healthy
One reason the Celtics' chances at winning a title aren't great is that their margin for error is razor thin. The Jeff Green situation doesn't help that. An injury to either Kevin Garnett or Jermaine O'Neal would likely kill any hope, and that's scary considering the combined 31 years of NBA experience between the two players. If either player goes down, the Celtics simply can't replace him. Both players will have to be effective as well as healthy, which is where a short season might come in handy.
