The Boston Celtics currently lead the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference with an overall record of 37-20!
Watch out NBA Basketball World because after re-building the past few years, developing players like Avery Bradley, and selecting Marcus Smart the Boston Celtics have made their team contenders again. They currently lead the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference with an overall record of 37-20.
Isaiah Thomas has also grown into an NBA superstar as he consistently posts 20+ point games while gaining the respect not only of Celtics legends like John Havlicek but also others around the league. He has become an elite point guard who is able to play both sides of the ball... offense as well as defense while dishing out the ball to his capable teammates along the way!
A recent statistical analysis showed that in fact Isaiah Thomas has put up better numbers than Allen Iverson in almost every category at this similar point in his young career.
This combined with Brad Stevens' excellent coaching abilities while keeping his players happy has propelled the Celtics back atop the playoff bound Eastern Conference teams. The toughest in the NBA as shown last year when the Eastern Champion Cleveland Cavaliers came back from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Regular Season Record Setting Golden State Warriors. LeBron James and Co. pulled off this feat to bring the Title to Cleveland and make a statement that East Coast Basketball will not be tossed aside by anyone.
The Boston Celtics hope to pull off a similar victory in their quest to hoist Banner #18 from the rafters over their homecourt floor. Let's hope it happens as soon as possible!
Go Celtics Go!
