Are the Boston Celtics getting so much love as a potential NBA Finals participant for how likable they are as much as their overall capabilities on the court? According to one analyst, that is at least part of the equation. Rich Eisen, host of the eponymous sports talk show on NBC’s Peacock platform and SiriusXM, makes such a case.

“With all due respect to Heat fans, I think Celtics-Warriors would be a much more enjoyable and competitive finals,” suggested Eisen on a recent show. “They are a very likable team,” he added, admitting the fact they were Celtics still bothers him as a New York Knicks fan still scarred by the original “Big Three” of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, and Robert Parish.

Check out the rest of the clip to see why Eisen, despite his rooting interests, thinks that Boston would be the better team to advance.
