For better or worse, it’s hard to argue that the Boston Celtics of last season were competitors in any sense of the word on the court. While they may have battled through a host of problems off the court, when it came to the parquet the team was softer than warm butter more nights than not.
But to that end, new President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens aggressively retooled the roster almost as soon as the offseason began, adding a collection of players with something to prove, a perennial chip on their shoulders — or both. From Dennis Schroder and Josh Richardson to Kris Dunn and Bruno Fernando, the team has gotten grittier.
On the latest episode of the CLNS Media “A-List” podcast, hosts Kwani A. Lunis and A. Sherrod Blakely talk about the team’s new editions and how they may impact the win column.
Watch the video embedded above to hear their takes on the Celtics’ new-look roster — it won’t be long until we can see them tested on the court.
