The Celtics’ Free Agency Disaster Delights NBA Twitter


After the 2017-2018 NBA season, everyone thought that the Boston Celtic will develop into a serious contender for years to come.

These young Celtics had been one of the biggest success stories of that season.

A young team that lost both their All Stars, Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving, who both underwent season-ending surgeries, made the Conference Finals. Boston’s young core (Tatum, Brown, Rozier) played brilliantly and made the fans almost forget about Irving and Hayward.

This season, with the two stars healthy and playing again, everyone expected the Celtics to be the East’s top dog and the start of them being a contender for many years. But in reality, the team was struggling all year long. Even worse for the franchise and its fans, as of now, the Celtics appear to be far from being a contender in these next few years.

The Celtics simply outplayed themselves and valued their draft picks more than acquiring another star that could have helped them in their quest to win an NBA title for he first time this decade.

Now, the team’s All-Star players will likely leave. Kyrie Irving has declined his player option and is expected to join one of the teams in the Big Apple. But he’s not the only one.

Al Horford has also declined his player option and apparently is no longer talking to the team about a deal. He will likely be looking for a four-year deal from another team.

The Boston Celtics imploding at the start of the 2019 NBA off-season, has brought joy to many on NBA Twitter, check it out.
