Even the best teams need a little luck.

The Golden State Warriors are (correctly) going to be the prohibitive favorites to win the NBA Championship this season. LeBron James is still a major roadblock, regardless of which players he has surrounding him. The Wizards, Raptors, Bucks and others will be vying to knock the Celtics off their goal.

Even the best teams need a few things to break their way to win a title. So what do you think has to happen for the Celtics to actually raise their next banner this season?

Are they still another trade away? Do they need some other team(s) to implode due to dysfunction, poor management, or injury? Perhaps some of our younger players could progress faster than anyone could have expected.

Paint us a picture of what you think a perfect season would look like.
