Much like the Oklahoma City Thunder that had young versions of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden, the Boston Celtics always seem to be within striking distance of winning it all. Despite not experiencing that ultimate success yet, it would be a mistake to break up this young core. The Celtics have a combination of youth, athleticism and experience that will be hard to match. The Celtics are potential title contenders based almost solely on the potential of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. That they have a deep complementary squad, and an All-Star point guard does not hurt their case either.
