Boston had the best record in the East and only have 4 players coming back.

They said, we know we had a good team but it wasn't good enough to make a real run.

Wish the Os would have this mentality.

I do too, but to be fair, the NBA it's a lot easier to have this mentality given how clear the competition is at the top and what you need to beat. 

 

Baseball carries a much larger parity to it. 

 

Also, if the O's were willing to hand out "max deal" equivalents to two top free agents in two consecutive years, that'd also be different. And that's not just "we're not good enough so we gotta overhaul" mentality if you ask me. 

 

That being said, I love what Boston has done and I do wish the O's were more like them too. I just think it's a little apple to oranges, but still fair criticism.

The mentality is the exact same.

Execution is different.

Irving saying he doesn't want to discuss further why he left Cleveland.... good luck there.

Horrible injury.   It certainly damages any chance the Celtics had at actually challenging the King and his court.
