07:12 AM ET 08.20 | With all the turnover in Boston, where might the over/under on wins be set this season -- and, perhaps more important for Celtics fans, where will it rank against the Charlotte Bobcats? [Thirty] is a good number to debate. Fans seem to be all over the place on where this team finishes, but I'm in the camp that the losses of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, as well as Rajon Rondo's recovery from knee surgery, leave the Celtics in a bad spot. Add in a new coach and a repetitive roster I'll go just over and say the Celtics win 31 games. That leaves them out of the playoffs but maybe ahead of the Bobcats.

30 Games? That would still put them in 11th in the east (by last years standings) and 8 back of the 8 spot. Yes I think they can win 30. Might be close tho..

Bobcats are going to surprise some people. Sorry Bill Simmons. They will be better than your Celtics.

My uncle had a chicken with lips. It was a fighting rooster who got his beek torn off in a fight. The skin rolled up and WHAM! Lips.
