Listen: Celtics, Rick And League discussed on Big Time Basketball
"Last night Jason Tatum going eighteen and the Celtics still winning and obviously poisoning is going one of eleven seven and you know we talked about and we pleaded patients. We're sitting here saying okay. It's yesterday. We literally talked about this yesterday. Like I'm not ready to overreact to porzingas having a bad start to his tenure in Dallas. But you know he's talking about getting he got benched at the end of that game and he's saying Oh. It was right for car allowed to do that because I was playing like crowd and Rick. Rick let's say that for wreck because I know Rick's got a lot of good stuff on him and not not ever. He thought there was way too much hyper him with the next. He actually believes that trade was kind of a win for the Knicks. In a way to clear up cap space and get rid of PORZINGAS so I don't know if I agree with that. So let's say that for when Rick comes on just about ten to fifteen minutes but I do WanNa talk about this cow because the Celtics are sort love you know. They're eight and one team best record in the league and they're kind of flying under the radar. Obviously they lost hayward but this is a team that has the best winning winning streak in the League. They have the best record in the league. They have the best net rating in the league. They have the best point differential in the league like the Celtics are on paper in elite team right now and are they. Is that where they are. Do you think that's fair. Like is that their neighborhood like are they opted. Do we have to start putting up with the sixers with the box with the Lakers. With the clippers with all of these teams that we had in the preseason being title favorites or do you think it's still too early and we haven't seen enough out of that team yet because the numbers if you look at the raw numbers. They're really impressive for Boston. Where where are you putting Toronto where a runaway earnings around? Whatever I have so? I Have Toronto and Boston just ahead of like. The Miami's of the world is still in that second tier not still Toronto a title Contender Cerruti is Toronto title contender or Scallon Alan Paulos in Toronto title contender because to answer the Celtic question. I got I answered this question. I would still be really surprised if if if they WANNA title this year. So I'm GONNA say no. Would you be surprised if they about forget. Why don't we just say this if you go to the NBA Finals era title contender? Can we just make that statement. Be Milwaukee in Philly and you've gone to the NBA finals. Are you a title contender."
