The Boston Celtics find themselves in unexpected territory to start the 2021 NBA playoffs, underdogs after several seasons of slow, gradual improvement in their quest for Banner 18.

Injuries and awkward roster construction dropped them to the East’s seventh seed after making it through their first play-in tournament game. Now, the Celtics will need to defeat the mighty Brooklyn Nets to make it out of the first round, and they will need everything they have to expect to win games in this series.

To talk about Boston’s postseason horizon and all things Celtics from an underdog perspective, the hosts of the CLNS Media podcast “The A-List” invited former Boston big man Jared Sullinger, who has been finding success himself overseas.

Check out the pod embedded above to hear what this familiar face has to say about the ceiling and floor of his former team, playing with newly minted Hall of farmer Kevin Garnett and a lot more — joined as usual by Kwani Lunis and A. Sherrod Blakely.
