6. Ray Allen

Allen scored 701 points this year – he needs 495 next year for 25,000 – that would be the fourth players to score 25,000 points and one time to have played for the Celtics (Havlicek, Pierce, Garnett)

8. Amazing Stat:

Bruins won 54 games this year – since the 1972 Stanley Cup – the Bruins have won at least 50 games seven times, all resulting in only two visits to the Stanley Cup finals – both of which they lost

9. Over-rated TV growing up:

* Lost in Space
* Banana Splits
* Bewitched
* Adams Family
* Little Rascals
* My Three Sons
* Tom and Jerry
* Gomer Pyle
