These players helped the Celtics almost get to the NBA Finals and will now be playing against some poor players. They could absolutely tear it up.

After only getting a taste of what the Celtics true starting 5 is able to do, next season will be a joy to watch.
Charles Barkley is an official green teamer now. Welcome to the club Chuck!
