The Boston Celtics made a huge jump last season, reaching the playoffs in year two of the team's rebuild.
The Green Team will have a chance to improve even more in the offseason with free agency and a ton of assets to use as trade chips.
One name that has been tossed around in potential trade is Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins. He has a big fan in Bob Ryan of the Boston Globe.
"I will personally pick him up at the airport," said Ryan. "I do not think he's evil. I think he's growing up better and he is enormously talented, enormously so. That is a cornerstone player and he's still very young. The year he was in the draft there were people who thought he should've been the number one pick just on the talent. He's proving to be a premier big man. Yes, I would roll the dice on DeMarcus Cousins."
