How the hell did Boston crack the top 5? Never count grizzled vets out. The C's are 21-8 since the All-Star break and have Miami and the Bulls shaking in their sneakers. It seems insane—even with the baggage—they even entertained trading Rajon Rondo. He is by far the best player on the team and should be seriously considered for MVP. He dropped 15 dimes on Miami and followed that up with a triple-double, including 20 assists against Atlanta in an OT win. They play New York in an important division game and can all but lock up the Atlantic with a victory. —Angel Diaz
