If only this were 2004, a front line of Jermaine O'Neal, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce would undisputedly be the best in the NBA. This isn't 2004, however, and instead of three MVP candidates in their frontcourt the Celtics have three former superstars who healths are in question on a nightly basis.
