The way the NBA is constructed now with the salary cap and tax provisions, there are not supposed to be dynasties. The NBA seems to be heading in a direction of parity. However, the Celtics led by Brad Stevens, have found a way to construct what should be the next of a long list of NBA dynasties.

After signing Jrue Holiday to a four-year extension earlier this week, the Celtics now have everyone besides Derrick White locked up for the future. Most people expect White and the Cs to get an extension done this offseason, which points to Boston being a potential juggernaut for the rest of the decade.

If that does bring a smile to your face as a Cs fan then I don’t know what else can.

Boston Celtics have similar traits to all-time greats

When you look at all the dynasties in the history of the NBA, they all have similar traits. They are led by all-time great players (Michael Jordan, Steph Curry, etc) and they bring a new wrinkle that the league has not seen before. The Celtics check off both boxes as Jayson Tatum appears on his way to being an all-time great player and the C's offense and defense have revolutionized the NBA this season.

The last hurdle for Boston to climb is proving the doubters wrong, which is true for every great dynasty. The Celtics have to prove that they are not overrated and can get it done when the lights are brightest.

If the Cs fail to win the title, the doubters and haters will only get bigger.

The Celtics are built to win Banner 18 this year, but they are also built to win 19, 20, and 21 (wait I don’t want to sound like LeBron James when he got to Miami). They are built to be a juggernaut and it will be beautiful to see.
