The Boston Celtics came close to winning the NBA Finals last season – but they didn’t come close enough.
It was a win-or-go-home situation for the Celtics and Golden State Warriors and, in the end, the Warriors had the firepower and skill to sail past Boston for another ring.
The Celtics had a stellar season, one to be very proud of, but they obviously want to get better so next year they aren’t the team that goes home.
To that end, they haven’t made many changes to their lineup since they feel like they have a good thing going with the core they currently use.

But the additions they have claimed in the offseason could be substantial.
Malcolm Brogdon is one of those additions.
Recently, the team released images of him practicing in the gym and he looked tuned in, fired up, and ready to play.
The former Rookie of the Year has a lot of Boston fans excited because they think he could have his best season yet during his first year at TD Garden.
However, there are concerns about Brogdon as well.
Brogdon In Boston
There are more than a few people who think Brogdon could have a stunning, career-defining season with the Cs.
That’s a big deal because, as mentioned, he was Rookie of the Year and has already found great success in the league.
Brogdon had some problems last year and injuries caused him to only play 36 games with the Indiana Pacers.
But he put up 19.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 5.9 during those 36 games – and started all of them.
There are some betting sites that think Brogdon could be in good shape again – a change of scenery can really motivate someone.
Based on these pictures, he certainly does look motivated.
