ESPN Boston: Biggest Underachiever?

Written by 

Chris Forsberg and the crew at ESPN Boston are organizing a series of discussions involving anything Boston Celtics. CLNS writers, Jared Weiss, along with myself, have been asked to participate. Let your voice be heard during the dog days of summer.

As it currently stands, the Boston Celtics have a logjam in their team roster. With 18 players currently on it, including the nonguaranteed deals of Keith Bogans, Chris Babb, and Chris Johnson, but not including the expected deal for Evan Turner, Brad Stevens will surely have a host of players aiming for playing time come October.

Last season, there were pleasant surprises (Jordan Crawford; Jared Sullinger), as well as major disappointments (Gerald Wallace; Jeff Green).

Stevens, along with Danny Ainge, can hope that the majority of the team performs at or above expectations. The truth lies somewhere behind that proclamation. Whether competition, injury, or lack of circumstance, it is reasonable to expect that a few players will come to disappoint Celtics fans and personnel alike.

Is it fair to predict reported newcomer Evan Turner as a potential disappointment when he has yet to sign on the dotted line? Will Jeff Green ever live up to the potential that may or may not even exist? Are expectations too high for Avery Bradley after signing a long term deal?

Let your opinion be heard at ESPN Boston!
