The Boston Celtics have an unbelievable starting five this season and are on a hot start to open the season — and to hang Banner 18 from the TD Garden in 2024 is a highly realistic possibility. With the acquisition of Jrue Holiday and Kristaps Porzingis, the Boston Celtics now have four players in their starting five who are former All-Stars.
With a lineup of Holiday, Derrick White, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Porzingis, the sky is the limit. In many aspects.
The Boston Celtics’ first five are head and shoulders above everyone else in the NBA. No other team has five players that on any given night can score twenty-five points. With that much talent, there is no doubt that the Celtics will finish at the top of the NBA standings and put them in a position to make NBA history.
Boston Celtics could be the first team ever to have five All-Stars
At no point in the long history of the NBA has a team had an entire starting five make the All-Star team. Many have come close by sending four players but never has a team sent all five players in their starting lineup. With the talent that the Boston Celtics currently have, they can make that history.
If the Celtics can stay healthy this season, they will win enough games to put them in that position. Boston’s roster will have enough production to make the team. It would only make sense that one of the most iconic brands in the NBA makes history once again.
Achieving this would crown the Cs with unquestionably the greatest starting five of all time. With this much talent on one team, Boston should find themselves with the best record in the NBA — and perhaps eventually, the NBA Champions when this season is all said and done.
