Let's get it on!

My beloved Boston Celtics kick off the 2012-2013 NBA season tonight, against the evil Miami Heat!

The Celtics have added some serious fire power to the bench, after losing Ray Allen to the Heat. Jason Terry and Courtney Lee, join what will be one of the best back courts in the league, with point guard Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley. Rookie Jared Sullinger, brings some size and toughness to the C's up front and could be one of the steals of the NBA draft. Maybe most importantly, Jeff Green returns after heart issues, to bring speed, power, athleticism and versatility to a team that needs it.

So tonight will have some interesting subplots to the game. Ray Allen faces the C's in a Miami uniform for the first time, after a very public and very ugly divorce from Boston. Also, the Heat get their championship rings before the game, a stinging reminder of Boston's game 7 defeat in the Eastern Conference finals. I'm STILL mad about it!
