Overall Position Analysis
Kyrie Irving on a contract. Not needed to be the primary option because of the depth this team has. Everyone is capable of being a big time scorer.
Jayson Tatum is becoming a premier player. Great young talent and versatile scorer.
Horford is a great play making center for this system. Shares the ball well and very High IQ.
Extremely deep team. Rozier, Smart, Morris, Baynes is a lot of toughness off the bench.
Everyone is capable of spreading the floor.
Positionless basketball. So many interchangeable parts. Just about everyone can dribble, pass, and shoot. Live players.

Efficient offense. Smart players. Ball moves where it is suppose to. Also have several players capable of one-on-one offense when in need of bail outs. Too many guys to stop.,Efficient offense. Smart players. Ball moves where it is suppose to. Also have several players capable of one-on-one offense when in need of bail outs. Too many guys to stop.
Led the league in 3PT% allowed last season and will likely be top 3 again. Have guys that can switch on everything on the perimeter.
Good size and length across the roster. Have dogs off the bench ready to get underneath opponents.
Overall Defensive Grade
Solid team defense. Understands assignments and positioning.
Coaching & Recruiting
Brad Stevens is now one of the top 3 coaches in the league. Great preparation and game planning. Does an excellent job scout opponents and their tendencies. Knows how to relay messages to his players. In-game adjustments are outstanding.
Overall Coaching Grade
Understands all his players strengths. Puts his players in position to succeed. Studies the game like no other. One of the top situational X's & O's coaches around.
Overall Recruiting Grade
Danny Ainge has done a great job rebuilding this team into a perennial contender in the east. Has done an excellent job in the draft. Aligns the right pieces together.
Last Season, Did the Team Meet Expectations?
Will They Make the Playoffs this Season?
I Expect the Celtics to be the top team in the East and will make to the Finals without Lebron in their way. Too deep of a team with a great coach that is able to out coach anyone. Has potential to even win it all.
