The Boston Celtics have finally finished their season. Now it is time to look back and evaluate each players' performance throughout the season and grade them accordingly.

Grade: B+
We still have no idea how good of a coach Brad Stevens will be. However, I like his calm demeanor, head for the game and the way he handles his players. Stevens put a weak roster in the best position to win no matter the competition. He deserves a B+ this season, but we will see how does when he is in control of a more talented team.

Grade: D
Okay, come on. Anthony is terrible. I know you can't expect much of him, but he is eating over million against the cap. So therefore, he get's a D for a grade. Sorry, Joel.

11. Chris Johnson

Grade: B-
Sadly, Chris Johnson looked like the best player on the court at times. He was not consistent enough to make a significant impact, but he made the most of his minutes. For that, I applaud him and give him a solid B-. Hopefully he will turn into something one day.

10. Phil Pressey

Grade: B
The undrafted free agent was terrific in the minutes he was given as a facilitator. His play-making abilities were quite impressive, as well as his hustle and determination. In starts, he would often dish out double-digit assists. Pressey may make a fine little player someday.

Grade: C
Wallace, who tore his MCL late in the year, is the highest paid C player. He works hard, is a leader and does a lot of the dirty work. He'd be great to have as a role player -- just not at million per year.

8. Kelly Olynyk

Grade: B
Kelly Olynyk finished the season as one of the top rookies in 2013-14. He may look awkward and uncoordinated at times, but a seven-footer who can put the ball on the floor, as well as shoot from the perimeter is valuable to any team. He's got great court sense but is slow on the defensive end of the floor. He should make out to be a solid role player and possibly a nice trade chip.

7. Jerryd Bayless

Grade: B
Bayless had a slow start but actually became a reliable and efficient scorer down the stretch. He's not afraid of the big shot, and he plays well next to Rondo. Bayless would make a great spark of the bench if this team is in contention next season. I would not mind him back in green at the right price.

6. Kris Humphries

Grade: B+
Humphries proved to be a team player with a great attitude. He's a bruiser down low and rebounds at a high rate. Humphries had a solid year and could be brought back next season depending on what direction this team goes.

5. Brandon Bass

Grade: A
Brandon Bass was one of the most consistent players on the Celtics. He did his job on the offensive end of the floor and was probably the best defender on the team. He's a solid role player that any team would love to have. Bass could be the victim of a trade this offseason.

4. Jeff Green

Grade: C-
This was the year to test Green and see whether he could make the next step as star-player. He certainly has all the talent, but he does not use it consistently. Green is not the guy the Celtics are looking for, and he may be out of Boston by the summer.

3. Avery Bradley

Grade: B+
Bradley would get an A if he didn't miss so much time with various injuries. Nonetheless, the young guard certainly flourished this season, as he shot almost 40 percent from beyond the arc. His defense took a back seat, but Bradley proved he can be a reliable offensive player. The Celtics have a big decision to make with Bradley this offseason.

2. Jared Sullinger

Grade: A-
Sullinger was arguably the best player on the Celtics this year. He was a double-double machine and even increased his shooting range. With his post skills and soft touch, Sullinger should be a solid player in the league.

1. Rajon Rondo

Grade: B
Rajon Rondo looked like his old self as the season went on. He averaged 11.7 points, 9.8 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game. At 28 years old, next season may be his best yet. Hopefully Danny Ainge can put some good players around him. If not, Rondo could be shipped out of Boston.
