Heading into this season, many expected the Boston Celtics to be one of the few contenders in the Eastern Conference that could legitimately compete with the Golden State Warriors. So far, the Celtics have looked everything but the part.
A potential reason for the Celtics willing to stand pat at the NBA Trade Deadline could be the potential for a big move during the summer. Boston is keeping its assets for a potential pursuit of Anthony Davis during the summer also makes the most sense.
However, Celtic will look into the future with a fantastic prospect like Zion Williamson. Nevertheless, realizing there is very little chance for the incredibly-athletic Zion Williamson to end up in the Celtics fold, I feel Boston fans need a distraction from two embarrassing losses to the Lakers and Clippers. I have entirely no recollection of any player at any level doing what you see Zion doing. He is amazing.
