The NBA season and the Boston Celtics are heating up at the exact same time.
Despite their struggles early in the season, the Celtics are really coming together and winning when it counts – in the ways that it counts.
There is actually a legitimate chance that Boston goes all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals.
In fact, it’s not crazy to envision them making it to – and winning – the NBA Finals.
One Boston fan sure thinks that’s possible because he got a tattoo celebrating a 2022 Celtics championship.

This isn’t the first time that a vigorous fan has received a tattoo predicting a major win.
But what are the chances that this prediction becomes a reality?
Can They Win?
The Celtics have been on a tear lately, with a dominant 9-1 record in the month of March.
They have also won four in a row.
But perhaps most importantly, the Celtics rank number one in both defensive rating and net rating since the new year began.
As important as an offense is, anyone will tell you that defense is what really wins basketball games.
Therefore, Boston really does have a strong shot at busting through the rest of the Eastern Conference and making the Finals.
It won’t be easy, of course.
There is some stiff competition in the East, including the Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers, and more.
Right now, Boston sits at the fourth spot with a record of 45-28.
But if they continue to play as they have been, the playoffs could be huge for this team.
And this devoted fan’s optimistic tattoo might not just be a hope – it could be a prophecy.
