08:09 AM ET 09.27 | NBA fans have likely come to expect brash words from Rajon Rondo, and, even before the season opens, he isn't disappointing in 2012-13. Rondo has developed into one of the NBA's top point guards and helped the Celtics win the 2008 championship. His only goal now is to deliver another title. While he calls the defending champion Heat "the team to beat," he thinks the remodeled Celtics have enough talent to dethrone them. "We won a championship and that's great, but I don't want to settle," Rondo said. "I have a lot of NBA time left on my clock and I got the talent around me. ... There are only five teams right now that can say they can compete for a title realistically. And we're one of them."

Rondo I like your brashness, and to think, you think you're gonna end up being better than Cou's, Jo Jo, DJ and Nate the Skate........now that says a lot for your confidence. Now all you gotta do is bring it to fruition! And yes, you're assertion that there's only five teams playin for a ring is accurate. The only debate across the nation is which five?

QUOTE(#12):

all it takes is me-bron slipping on a banana peel and we'll have the red carpet straight to the Finals.... Injuries happen. Discord happens. And what if Ray doesn't get enough touches.... Ru-Bosh could accidently get eye liner in his eye.... It's a long season. D-Wade misses up to 15 games a season, could be more now that their big 3 are all entering their 10th season....

LOL lets hope Bron doesn't slip on a banana peel LOL but Boston is the only team that I think can defeat them in the East.
