The Boston Celtics had possibly the best offseason of any NBA team. In free agency the Celtics added one of the best players on the market, Al Horford. Horford’s versatility and shot-blocking ability will make head coach Brad Stevens system come to life in 2016. With Marcus Smart, Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder hounding teams on the perimeter and funneling driving guards to Horford many NBA experts envision the Celtics becoming one of the best defensive teams in the league. The high-pressure style of the Celtics will lead to exciting basketball with many fast breaks and dunks.
On the other side of the ball, Horford will also unlock a potent offensive system, because of his shooting ability and passing skills. Although Isaiah Thomas had an excellent year and was an All-star, the Celtics sorely needed some playmaking and shooting ability to compliment their defensive minded guards and wings. Horford’s role will be to facilitate from the elbow and provide spacing for the drives of Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley. In the draft, the Celtics nabbed one of the highest upside players in Jaylen Brown, a small forward from Cal, who is an electric athlete and has all the tools to become a star for many years to come. The Celtics will compete against the Cavaliers for the top seed in the Eastern Conference and have legitimate championship hopes.
