NBA Standings 2012: Celtics Clinging To Eight Seed In East

It doesn't take a blind monkey to figure out the Boston Celtics this season have been, well, not as impressive as in years past. There has been talk around town about what needs to be done to fix this team. Trade Paul Pierce? Trade Rajon Rondo? Trade Ray Allen? Everything that you can imagine, it has been thrown out there.

If you play for a 15-17 team in the city of Boston, you are subject to major media and fan criticism. Despite all of the drama surrounding the team this year, they actually haven't been that bad. In fact, the Boston Celtics are still a playoff team, technically. Now imagine that!

Entering All-Star Weekend, the Cs were slated to be the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. Check out the full Eastern Conference standings, after the jump
