Just under a month until the NBA season kicks off. The question has been thrown around for the entire offseason. Well, at least since the Celtics obtained Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving. Now with the season in sight the question is a legitimate question, who is the best team in the East?
Now, we have a different story. Kyrie Irving is on the squad.
I believe the Celtics are the team to beat in the Eastern Conference right now. Especially if Isaiah Thomas misses crucial time. That said, this is all based on whether or not LeBron goes LEBRON this year. That is always something that could happen. It doesn't matter if a team is better when he takes over a game.
But other than that... I believe the Celtics truly have the better team and organization right now. Therefor I believe they are the favorites to win the Eastern Conference.
