It’s not too often you can lose a future Hall-of-Famer in free agency and still become a better team, but the Boston Celtics were able to do just that this offseason. Ray Allen may be gone, but the C’s were able to replace him with Jason Terry and Courtney Lee.
Not only did Boston improve via free agency, but they should be a lot healthier. Avery Bradley, Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox should all be ready by January and be part of one of the deepest teams in basketball.
While Miami will still be a heavy favorite in the Eastern Conference, Boston looks a lot better than last year and could potentially make it to the Finals this season.
The future is bright for the Celtics, but so is the present, and Boston fans should be very excited for the upcoming season.
