The Boston Celtics have been one of the busiest teams in the NBA during the offseason, with the storied franchise seemingly determined to win that elusive 18th championship banner and move ahead of the arch-rival Los Angeles Lakers for the most titles won in league history.
Boston wasted no time once the offseason got underway, with the team putting together a blockbuster trade for veteran forward Kristaps Porzingis, formerly of the Washington Wizards.
Although the Celtics had to give up one of their best defensive players for Porzingis, as they shipped Marcus Smart to the Memphis Grizzlies, Boston seems confident that this was the right way to go, emphasizing bolstering the offense rather than the defense.
Along with the team making moves to get in title contention during the 2023-24 NBA season, Jayson Tatum and newly re-signed Jaylen Brown have been busy at work trying to improve their on-court skills, as can be seen in this video via ClutchPoints.

Currently, the Celtics are considered the favorite to win it all next season, along with the defending NBA champion Denver Nuggets, which is telling considering all the talented teams coming into the 2023-24 campaign.
It appears that the trio of Tatum, Brown, and Porzingis has impressed enough people to make oddsmakers believe that Boston could be a serious force to be reckoned with next season.
Only time will tell if this new dynamic trio works out in Boston, but it seems like the team is off to a good start, with all three stars motivated to win a title.NEXT: Jayson Tatum Links Up With Big East Rival At The Gym
