Celtics PRIDE podcast: could KG’s jersey retirement ceremony motivate the current team?

In this episode of the Celtics PRIDE podcast, Adam and Josh start with a quick review of the past week including another buzzer beater at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks and Luca Doncic.

Then they discuss KG night. What is the meaning of such celebrations? Will Ray Allen get his number in the rafters next? What is the impact on the current roster and KG coming back into the Garden and visiting them in the locker room?

Then Josh hits his quota of mentioning Bill Simmons every podcast prompting a discussion of the current team and whether they have a secondary scorer capable of hitting big shots when Jason Tatum gets doubled. Hint: it’s about team basketball, not star power with this team.

Then Adam and Josh take a look at the playoff teams in both the East and West to identify whether any of them seem scary in the playoffs. Does this year provide a unique opportunity for the Celtics to possibly contend for a title now?
