If the 2022-23 NBA season were to end today, two Boston Celtics players would have made All-NBA teams according to the assessments of the catchall metric created by HoopsHype’s Alberto De Roa.

That metric, which De Roa has dubbed “Global Rating,” is, as he describes it, “an advanced metric that evaluates the performance of every player during the season.”

The players in question are likely obvious given how important they are to the Celtics. Star wings Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown make the first and third teams, respectively. The former would be a repeat honor from last season. The latter would be a first-time achievement, which would put Brown in line to earn a supermax if he re-signs with Boston.

Tatum shares his first-team status with Luka Doncic, Stephen Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nikola Jokic. Donovan Mitchell, Ja Morant, Kevin Durant, Lauri Markkannen and Karl-Anthony Towns make up the second team.

Brown’s third team peers, include Devin Booker, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Paul George and Domantis Sabonis.

Pretty solid company for them to keep, if you ask us — and Brown might have yet higher to climb this season.
