Good article on why Rondo and Telfair had questions coming out of their previous programs and why they should thrive in Boston. I am excited to see these two play with the Celtics and know that just the addition of two quick PGs will make us a much better team.
On one side of the room are the optimists who celebrate the arrival of two new bona fide point guards to the mix.

In the wake of the Celtics' 2006 draft night machinations, only one thing remains clear: There is no consensus opinion when it comes to Boston's new point guards.
The Celtics certainly have appeared happy with their new roster additions. Summarizing his draft transactions, Danny Ainge said: "We addressed some needs and we think we got two terrific young players [in Telfair and Rondo]."
