The Boston Celtics have proven to be one of the most confusing teams in the association thus far into 2021-22.
Frankly, it just seems like every other night we’re being introduced to a completely different shamrocks squad, one that will fall to a recently struggling opponent by double digits like they did against the Philadelphia 76ers while the other actually manages to scrape out a clutch win over arguably the league’s best team in the Chicago Bulls.
Now, with stars like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown on their side it should typically come as no surprise when the C’s find themselves competing against upper echelon organizations like the Bulls, the Phoenix Suns, and the Milwaukee Bucks as they have on several occasions this season but, unfortunately, for the most part, these types of outings have not proven to be the norm due to Boston’s oddly constructed talent pool surrounding their two centerpieces.
While it appeared as though Brad Stevens and co. made the proper adjustments to the rotation this past offseason by bringing on guys like Josh Richardson, Al Horford, and Dennis Schroder ultimately these additions have not been able to shore up the majority of weaknesses found on the Celtics and, as a result, the front office will likely look to take part in more shakeups during this trade season to try and fix said weaknesses.
