☘️ The Celtics Are Once Again in the Eastern Conference Finals. Where’s the Drama? — The Ringer

This particular group of players… is among the most talented in the franchise’s storied history. That the team regularly goes through stretches of aimless play feels illogical. Cataclysmically embarrassing blown leads feel akin to AI hallucinations. Their past eight years have been a kaleidoscope that has refracted success in every possible way other than the way that is undeniable. There is still an unresolved tension at play.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Celtics found a way to win it all this year, but if I were a betting man, I’d wage against it.
