The NBA is -- tentatively -- on its way back, which means the Celtics drive for an 18th championship begins Dec. 9, when abbreviated training camps and the free-agent signing period are expected to open. With Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo, the Celtics will be among the favorites in the Eastern Conference during the regular season, but beyond those top four, major questions remain.
