I am stumped. The Celtics have more talent than any team not from Oakland, yet essentially a quarter of the way through the season, they sit at a disappointing 10-10, tied for 6th place in the East with….gasp… Charlotte. Celtics fans were expecting a shot at Zion, RJ Barrett, or Bol Bol with the Kings’ or Grizzlies’ draft picks this summer. But the Celtics currently have a worse record than both of those teams.
