Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics Match Preview

With Kawhi Leonard moving to the West signing with the Los Angeles Clippers in the offseason, the Eastern Conference is an open game for any team looking to win the conference.

But there are still teams who are head and shoulder above the rest, only a few but there are. Unlike West which is the hot zone of the superteams, with superstars dispersed equally across teams and zones, the East will surely be governed by Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers with Boston Celtics 3rd best teams as per NBA general perception.

But the Celtics have something which only a handful of teams can boast about, and that is their proud history. The players know it. They should be motivated to carve their own names in the history books of this proud franchise. That’s why the Greens can’t be ruled out from contention. Not in any season. Not after Kemba Walker joined the Cs in the off-season. He is a superstar sans-drama, who has been doing wonderful things with an average team. The former Charlotte Hornets star will improve Celtics’ backcourt, while Jayson Tatum and Gordon Hayward are more than capable of taking the offence forward.

But the Sixers are the present superpower of the East at the moment. In Joel Embiid, the Sixers boast the best two-way Center in NBA, while the likes of Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris, and Al Horford adds even more height and potency to the team.

Surely into football, kicked it for a while, and now beholding! Follows American sports, especially the NBA. And I believe Stephen Curry is under-rated as was Steven Gerrard.
