While it is a small sample size, the Boston Celtics have looked impressive early on in the 2023-24 season, winning their first four games of the season. The Cs look to have chemistry despite being so star-studded and the acquisitions of Jrue Holiday and Kristaps Porzingis have the Celtics looking like the team to beat in the NBA — and the way these players have been able to come in and fit so smoothly is making the game a lot easier for both Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum.
Everyone looks ready and willing to sacrifice for each other to win games.
The Celtics, as of right now, have a team that can achieve absolutely anything conceivable. The last time a team looked this dominant was the 2015-2016 Golden State Warriors. That team didn’t close the deal in the Finals, but they did precede a dynasty.
The Boston Celtics should not pursue Warriors’ win record
While it is unclear what the rest of the season will look like, right now this Boston Celtics looks like they are head and shoulders better than everyone else.
While this can certainly be a historic team, chasing the all-time single-season win record should not be important. The one thing this Boston Celtics roster should put their focus on is capturing Banner 18. While they could have the talent to win as much as they want, chasing a record like the 2015-2016 Warriors runs the risk of burning the team out before their big games in the playoffs.
The Boston Celtics need to make sure they get the job done at the end of the postseason, not nearly every moment of the regular season. Having any historical regular season does not measure up if you do not finish it off with an NBA Championship.
We may be at the start of a new golden era for Boston Celtics basketball. They can chase any award they want because they are so talented, but the only thing they should focus on collecting is multiple NBA Championships.
And they could be incoming in droves in the coming years.
