The 2019-2020 NBA season is just around the corner. Boston opens up against their rival 76ers on the 23rd, followed by the Toronto, New York, and Milwuakee. The Celtics will look a little different than the team from last year mainly due to the fact that star guard Kyrie Irving is no longer on the team. Instead they signed ex-Hornets star Kemba Walker. Look for him to fit in much better with the young core of the team. The bigger impact player that will be missed was their backup guard Terry Rozier. Rozier brought a lot of energy off the bench and provided a big spark.
The Celtics will continue to rely on their young nucleus of Jason Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, and veteran leader Gordan Hayward who they will need to lead the team and return to his 2016 Jazz form. He has the ability to lead this team and we believe he will.
Prediction: 4 seed in the east
