Where should we place the Boston Celtics in the East after losing Danilo Gallinari and the Cleveland Cavaliers picking up Donovan Mitchell? An arms race appears to be taking shape in the NBA’s Eastern Conference just as the Celtics take a big hit to their frontcourt depth, and other teams start to load up on signings around the margins now that the Kevin Durant trade request demise has freed up the market.

Should Boston be worried about their anticipated spot at the top of the East standings? Or are they in better shape than some seem to worry they are?

The host of the NBC Sports Boston “Celtics Talk” podcast Chris Forsberg was recently joined by guest Chris Tomase to talk about their opinions of the lay of the East to start in the 2022-23 NBA season and more.
