If fans of the Boston Celtics could have seen into the future in 2021 regarding just how bumpy of a ride their favorite team would be looking at in the next year, they very well might have dismissed everything that has happened as pure fiction.
In the course of one calendar year, the storied ball club went from a struggling young team with an unproven head coach beset with calls to split up their star wings to a title contender losing in the finals in 6 games. But even that wasn’t all 2022 had to offer, with one of the best offseasons in the NBA nearly derailed by coach misconduct, only to see current interim coach Joe Mazzulla take the reigns as Boston came out to start 2022-23 like a house on fire.
To take a look back on a wild ride of a year as well as to try and divine what might be coming down the pike for the Celtics, NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg and Boston alum and broadcaster Eddie House linked up on a recent episode of the “Celtics Talk” podcast.
