Unfortunately for Celtics fans the NBA Finals didn’t end in the result that they would’ve hope for it to due to them losing to the current NBA Finals champions Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors 103-90 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, losing the series 4-2.
Now that the Finals are done and over with, there are two questions that are lying with both teams. The question that is asked by the Warriors is … Can they repeat as the NBA Finals champions next season? As for the Celtics, Is their NBA championship window closed or is it just beginning?
Here’s the answer to both questions …
Yes! The Golden State Warriors can still repeat as the NBA Finals champions next season due to the chemistry they already had with their big three Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green heading into this season and experience advantage they have over the rest of the league.
With new stars in town in the names of forward Andrew Wiggins and point guard Jordan Poole now having the experience to not only win the playoffs but to win in the NBA Finals.
What many fear has a strong possibility of coming true and that is the Warriors continuing to build the team to win and dominate in the future while also having the team to win it all.
Now on to the Celtics, to say that their championship is closed is utterly ridiculous and here’s why …
They have arguably the youngest roster in the league starting with their big three in the names of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Marcus Smart, which is more than enough to build their championship roster around.
Don’t forget that they still have their road warriors in the names of Al Horford, Derrick White, and Robert Williams lll, along with adding point guard Malcolm Brogdon via trade from the Indiana Pacers on Friday.
According to ESPN, Brogdon averaged last season 19.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.9 assist, while playing on an average of 18.10 minutes per game, you can definitely expect him to have a similar role with the Celtics as Poole has right now with Warriors. This roster addition will indefinitely take pressure off both Tatum and Brown due to Celtics now having not one, but three good to great shooters on their team to spread the ball out this season.
Moral of the story, in the words of Boggan “The Boston Celtics is a team that is going to be around for many years to come.”
