The Boston Celtics have had some bumps in the road since their red-hot start to the 2022-23 NBA season, with a certain type or two of opponents giving the Celtics trouble on a consistent basis. Earlier on, it was bigger teams, with multiple large frontcourt players, as well as larger wings.
The other, somewhat embarrassingly, have been teams that are very clearly the worse of the two ball clubs. Solving both in time to ensure the Celtics have the best chance they can to win it all in 2023 could require drastic measures, perhaps even including trading away injured veteran Danilo Gallinari, as cold as it might seem.
At least, that is the notion being discussed on a recent episode of the CLNS Media “Celtics Beat” podcast with guest Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston fame.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they think about such a drastic prospect.
