After having come within two wins of beating the dynastic Golden State Warriors in the 2023 NBA Finals, you have to believe that Boston thinks they are ready to finally hang Banner 18.

Particularly given the Celtics added veteran forward Danilo Gallinari and former Indiana Pacers point guard Malcolm Brogdon to virtually the same core that got them to within a stone’s throw of a championship.
